200 free patent residential land titles in Maasin City approved

by ES Gorne

MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte, Jan 18 (PIA8) -- The Community Environment and Natural Resources (CENRO) in Maasin City has already transmitted 40 percent of the targeted 500 patents titled last year to the Register of Deeds in the province under the Free Patent Titling for residential lots.

According to Land Management Division OIC Ma. Billy Tolibas, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) - Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) Maasin City has already approved the land titles for 200 residential under the mentioned program.

Tolibas said the free patent for titling of residential lands is an administrative titling undertaken by government for all the lots under the cadastral survey of the national government way back in 1975.

Two years ago, the national government offered the free patent titling for residential lots which is applicable only to those that underwent the cadastral survey, she said.

She said the program will first attend to the whole lot surveyed under the cadastral program, hence, the portion of lands being bought from the whole lot is not applicable. However, as soon as the whole lot is titled, then the transfer of the residential lot could be done immediately.

She added that an application fee of P50 for the free patent of residential lots were among the minimal requirements set by the national government to facilitate the titling of residential lands under the mentioned program.

She further reported that other than the administrative titling being facilitated by the government, there is the judicial titling as another option which is more expensive since the titling will go through the judicial process. (PIA SoLeyte/esg)
