Ang ating uniporme ay ang pagpapahayag natin ng ating pagtanggap sa ating mga kapatid na mga Moro at Katutubo. Iisang bansa lang tayo at dapat natin tanggapin ang ating pagkakaiba sapagkat kung sa lupang ito ay iisa ang mangingibabaw at babaliwalain lang ang mga sari-saring pag-kakaiba na nagaganap at nangyayari sa bawat sulok ng ating bansa ay para na rin binubura natin ang ating pagka Pilipino sapagkat ang ating pagkaka-iba ay kung ano tayo.

       Notice is hereby given to the public that unscrupulous individuals have been posing as members of the Cabinet, including the Executive Secretary, or name-dropping the latter in fraudulent schemes to solicit funds from the public.

       In particular, please be warned that the Office of the President (OP) or the Office of the Executive Secretary (OES) has not authorized any person to solicit money or other things of value from the public for the alleged benefit of Marawi soldiers, senior citizens, illegal drug campaign, or any other cause, for that matter.

Memorandum Circular No.065

The Authority has issued a circular which provides rules, procedures, and guidelines for the implementation of a system for the Automated Client Entry for Certified True Copies of Certificates of Title (ACE-CTC).

Done in concurrence with the agency’s mandate to preserve the integrity of the land registration process—which includes the implementation and continuance of the Torrens system of land titling—and through the Land Titling Computerization Project (LTCP), the issuance seeks to further improve the LRA’s services to stakeholders by allowing them to directly enter their requests for certified true copies of system-generated titles and titles electronically stored in another computerized registry. Although the measure initially covers the two mentioned transaction types, other transaction classes shall be included upon issuance of a memorandum requiring the addition.

Administrator Renato Bermejo signed the directive, officially designated as LRA Circular No. 28-2017, on 20 September 2017. The circular takes effect fifteen days after its publication in a newspaper of general circulation and after the filing of 3 copies of the measure with the UP Law Center.

Nang umupo bilang Administrator, ipinahiwatig ni Renato D. Bermejo ang kanyang adhikain na tulungan si Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte na matupad ang kanyang pangako na tunay na pagbabago sa pamahalaan sa pamamagitan ng mabuting paglilingkod sa Land Registration Authority upang lalong magbigay sa publiko ng masinop na pagtatala at pangangalaga ng mga sipi ng titulo.

Dahil ang mga Register of Deeds ang may mahalagang papel para marinig ng Administrator ang mga tao na nasa malalayong lugar ng ating bansa, gumawa siya ng program para ipaabot sa kanila ang mga mahahalagang circular ukol sa mga reporma. Upang lalong maging epektibo ang naturang programa, itinalaga niya sina Edwin L. Calmona, Administrative Officer V, at ilang piling tauhan para magtungo sa iba't ibang rehiyon upang makipag-ugnayan sa mga Register of Deeds sa pag-ayos ng mga lugar na pagdarausan ng mga seminar at iba't ibang gawain sa pagtalakay ng mga mahahalagang isyu sa pagpaparehistro ng lupa.

In view of the changes in the political jurisdictions and boundaries of local government units (LGUs), where rezoning and changes in municipal borders virtually relocate realties from one municipality to another, Administrator Renato Bermejo has seen the necessity to craft new rules in the transferal of a title from its former registry of deeds (RD) to the new one.

Under LRA Circular No. 30-2017, the Title Transfer Process may be initiated upon approval by the Administrator. After such approval, the land title shall be transferred from its source RD to the receiving RD. This entails not only the transmission of the physical copy reposed in the source RD’s vault, but also of its corresponding title “image and electronic data” from the database of the registry concerned.

The new rules further address such instances as where the physical registry copy cannot be found within the vault of the source RD, where a title covers multiple parcels of land, and the procedure in the disposition of canceled titles over land which have been moved by legislative fiat.

The Circular was issued on 25 September 2017 and takes effect in accordance with the publication requirements under law.

The Legal Division, an office which has not had a regular boss since 2013, has been assigned a permanent chief.

In July, Atty. Ma. Lourdes Bantegui-Rodriguez took the reins as head of the Division.

Rodriguez, who originally came from the private sector, has said of her new assignment, “My new work is exciting because it is a new specialized field for me. Considering my age, I no longer aspire for higher positions. I just want to work, serve the government for the next three and a half years.”

Rodriguez took her Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications and her Law Degree at the Far Eastern University. After passing the Bar, she took to corporate practice and became the corporate secretary of various SEC and PSE listed companies. Although corporate law has been her bread and butter, she has also served in an advisory capacity as a consultant to the executive secretary of the Office of the President, the Senate, and the Public Estates Authority.


eqdrill.jpgWith the apparent increasing incidence of earthquakes, and in anticipation of what has long been termed The Big One, government has been scrambling to lay the groundwork for a proper response to the occurrence of a quake of serious magnitude.

To prepare employees on the proper procedures on safety upon the incidence of such a temblor, the Disaster Preparedness Committee conducted an agency-wide earthquake drill. Held in July, the workforce went through the procedures which should be observed during and after a crippling earthquake.

The simulation saw agency staff calmly leave their offices to mass at certain points in the open grounds. Apparently a success, kudos went out to the Disaster Preparedness Committee.
The Committee itself was constituted in 2012 to address concerns that workers of the agency would not be able to organize themselves in times of calamity.

Co-chaired by Engr. Ma. Teresa Yancha and Joel Amores, the Committee has been the body charged not only with working to stave the effects of a disaster, but to help in relief operations where the calamity concerned affects agency employees.

On July 17, Joel R. Amores of the LRA’s Financial Service, was assigned as Acting Program Manager of the LRA-CARP.

Amores entered the service in 1982 as a Casual Clerk with the then National Land Titles and Deeds Registration Administration. He made his way through to the position of Utility Worker before earning his professional eligibility in 1992. In 2011 he was promoted to Supervising Administrative Officer.

Before being assigned to head the LRA-CARP, he concurrently held the post of Acting Chief Security Officer and assistant chief of the Budget Division.

With almost thirty-five years of government experience under his belt, Amores hopes to optimize the work at the office. “The LRA-CARP needs to be given a shot in the arm for things to be fast-tracked, so that more farmer-beneficiaries will be able to till and live on a piece of land that they call their own,” he said.

The LRA-CARP, the intermediate office between the Land Registration Authority and the Department of Agrarian Reform, is mandated to work for the redistribution of public and private agricultural lands to landless farmers and farmworkers, regardless of any tenurial arrangement.
