Need advice. I am planning to buy a Farm lot but I am in doubt because the Title is not in the Seller's name and the title is not the original copy but only a duplicate copy with stamped of DAR. The seller told me that he has a notarized document a proof that he paid the previous owner and according to him, he requested long time back the transfer of title into his name but due to trust to previous owner, he didnt pursue it.
Is the seller authorize to sell the lot? What are the things i need to check before I buy the farm? How to verify the authenticity of documents?
Thank you po.
