PIA Press Release

Over 1000 get land titles in "Handog Titulo" program

By Bong Pedalino

MAASIN (28 September) -- More than a thousand people, most of them senior citizens already, finally got hold of land titles for the real estate they inherited from their grandparents, even great grandparents.

This was made possible through a "Handog Titulo" land certificates distribution held at the Abgao Covered Court, this city, Thursday, September 27.

But for this latest land titles distribution, only residents of three municipalities were rendered service -- Macrohon, Padre Burgos, Tomas Oppus -- and this city by personnel from the Land Registration Authority (LRA) and the Register of Deeds (ROD).

Those who came did receive notices of invitation for said activity to claim the titles that had been long approved and pending in their office, said some ROD Staffs in a casual talk with PIA.

At the end of the day, 105 titles were distributed for Macrohon, 115 for Padre Burgos, and 240 for Tomas Oppus, and over a thousand for Maasin City alone, no specific figure just yet since the distribution process was still ongoing when this report was written.

The "Handog Titulo" program was a priority project under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, through Benedicto Ulap, LRA Administrator, it was learned.

For those whose ancestral lands were not yet titled, ROD personnel Bebi Esma and Bebi Ramos advised them to refer to the lands management bureau of the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO), bringing with them their respective tax declaration papers and corresponding lot numbers, and from there they will be properly guided on the next steps to be taken.

The day-long activity was also supported by the four local government units mentioned earlier. (PIA-Southern Leyte) [top]
