I have owned a certain residential lot in Laguna since 2011. Recently, I have decided to take steps toward building a house on the said property.
After my first consultation with an architect, he noted that he had problems with the technical description of the property as two points do not seem to "close" the boundaries of the property. I have consulted with another architect and he has validated that there indeed seems to be a problem with the technical description. I have been advised to get a copy of the Technical Description and Approved Lot plans for the property as an initial check against a potential typographical error when my title was made in 2011.
1.) Can the Technical Description and Approved Lot Plan covering the property be obtained from the regional (Laguna) LRA or RD, or is there another government office I need to go to in order to obtain copies of these documents? Or do I need to proceed to go to the head office in Manila?
2.) In case there is an error, whether typographical or otherwise, how do I go about having it corrected?
3.) I did not purchase the lot directly from a developer, however, can I still hold them liable in case there are resulting discrepancies in terms of the actual size of the property? I would like to note that there is currently no existing structure/house on any of the lots adjacent to the property except for the road lot.
