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.

          Another LRA Extension Office at Robinson’s Bank located at the Corporate Office in Robinson’s Galleria, Quezon City, was inaugurated last March 19, 2018.This is the 19th extension office that was established. This LRA Extension Office shall be capable of issuing certified true copies of titles covering properties located in different parts of the country in the comfort of its own office without need of personally going to different Registries of Deeds nationwide. “We all know how important it is for banks like you to be able to get the latest information relative to titles being used or offered as collateral. Fast, to-date, and reliable information is key to good business decisions that benefit not only the banks but, most especially, you clients,” says Deputy Administrator Ronald A. Ortile who represented the agency in this event. He expressed that the roll-out of the extension office will contribute to ease in doing business to Robinson’s Bank and its clients as LRA continues to explore more ways to simplify its services to the public through the use of modern technology.
