Photos Of Our Land And The Or Bor Tor Office In Pakchong

There are several different Government Registration Offices in Thailand related to people, houses and land.

First, the Ampur deals with the people living in a house. It is where births, deaths and marriages are registered.

The Or Bor Tor (District Government) Office deals with buildings and is where Building Permits are issued. They also issue the registered address of a newly constructed property.

The Land Office deals with Land Registration, this is where the Land Title Deeds (such as a Chanote) are registered.

Sometimes people get confused between the Land Office and the Or Bor Tor Office so I am showing photos of both offices in Pakchong so that at least you have a visual image of the two different kinds of office.

Is Our Land Flooding Or Not?

It has been raining heavily for several days in Pakchong this week and Kanyah phoned me to say that several areas of Pakchong were flooded (naam thuaam).

Because she had previously told me, as advised by our future new neighbour, that the land in the area where we want to build out house floods in the rainy season I was anxious to know the extent and depth of the flood water.

Foundation Design And Footing Depth

I had a couple of weeks ago reported this to the engineer designing the foundations of our house and as a result of that he suggested that the footings of the foundations be set at 2 m below ground level, whereas they had previously been set at 1 m below ground level. This is explained on the Thai House Foundation Design page.

Therefore I was keen therefore to verify (or otherwise) that this was the correct decision, since obviously deeper foundations cost more money.

Height Of Ground Floor Slab

Also important to me was at what height the ground floor slab should be above normal ground floor level if it was to be above the flood water. At the moment the Car Parking area is 100 mm above general ground floor level and the Workshop is 200 mm above.

Photos Of Our Land In the Rainy Season

The first photo is taken looking across our land towards the neighbour’s house. You can just about make out the access road in the foreground and it is absolutely dry. There is no sign of flooding whatsoever! After questioning this with Kanyah it seems there was a mis-communication when the neighbour reported about flooding in the area. It now appears that in the rainy season there is flooding in various parts of Pakchong, but not the place where our land is located!

What is evident, though, is how high the vegetation is. This is even more evident on the next photo.

Compare that undergrowth with the land as we bought is on May 4th 2010 as shown in the photo below.

The next photo shows our pickup on the access road. It’s clearly far from flooded, yet this was in the afternoon following several days of torrential rain.

The Or Bor Tor (District Government) Office At Pakchong

The Or Bor Tor Office is where we apply for the building permit and is the District Government Office. It is also a ‘land office’ but not the same Land Office where we obtained the Chanote (Land Title Deed) when we purchased our land. Because these two offices are not the same I want to show you pictures of each one. Here is the Or Bor Tor Office in Pakchong local to our land. Kanyah is standing on the steps.
