MANILA, Philippines – Register of Deeds (RDs) offices nationwide have undergone enormous transformation — from a picture of unorganized record management and poor working conditions, to a portrait of efficient, computerized systems and state-of-the-art technology.
The structural and administrative overhaul formed part of the Land Titling Computerization Program (LTCP), a flagship project of the Land Registration Authority (LRA) under the Aquino administration.http://www.philstar.com/business-usual/2013/07/29/1024161/register-deeds-offices-undergo-massive-rehabilitation
Heirs of properties in Luzon, Visayas or Mindanao residing in Manila will not have to travel all the way to their home town just to get a certified copy of land titles or land tax declarations. They just have to know the listed name of the original owner, his or her spouse’s name and their declared address – to get the right copy of the document needed. Truly a big help to property owners or soon to be owners.
