NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC

SUBJECT: Surrender of old Manual Titles for upgrading to Electronic Title

DATE: June 24, 2019

FROM: Administrator
Land Registration Authority

When the Land Registration Authority (LRA) embarked into computerization through the Land Titling Computerization Project (LTCP), around 16.6 Million titles of the 159 registries nationwide were scanned and uploaded in the database. However, the scanned image in the system is not the title itself but is only the picture thereof. The title remains the paper title kept in the vault of the registry office.

The aforementioned scanning of title, including the encoding of the entries thereof, serves as a preparatory process before the upgrading of the title to Electronic Title, the nature of which would be discussed herein later.

When there is a transaction involving the title, be it sale, mortgage, or any transaction that requires annotation, pursuant to Sections 54 and 57 of PD 1529, the Office of the Register of Deeds through its Records Officer is required to find the title to ascertain that it still exists because when it cannot be found, the office has to recommend the filing in court of a petition for the reconstitution of the lost title before any transaction can be had thereon.

In line with evolving the corporate culture of the agency to one comparable with the more progressive of companies in the private sector as well as in other premier agencies of the government, the Authority sponsored a seminar for its managerial employees and lawyers.

                The Leadership Training on Core Competency: Delivering Service Excellence, Problem Solving & Decision Making, and Exemplifying Integrity, while apparently being verbosely-challenged in title, did not suffer any infirmity in its conduct.  Curated by Karen Mendoza, a Civil Service Commission-accredited speaker, the confab brought together sixty agency leaders both from the central office and select registries of deeds for a three-day series of lectures and workshops to bring them up to speed on required managerial skills.

Held from 27 to 29 November at the National Irrigation Administration Convention Hall and the Multipurpose Hall of the LRA, the colloquium tackled such matters as motivational leadership, stress management, and the classifying and managing of subordinates.
