1 TCT irregularity on Mon Mar 07, 2011 2:06 am


Arresto Menor
Hello po...just want to ask your opinion of my situation..

I bought po a land with only a tax declaration..before we bought it I asked around in the place regarding the history of the land and the seller and everyone in that area says that they are the owner..

also po, we checked with the assessors office in our city, and they vouch for the authenticity of the tax dec and all was in order..we published it and there was no we paid for it and prepared all requirements for titling..

when we submitted for the approved plan, we found out that the land is part of an existing land title of a person we can call Mr. X. so I researched the history of the land.

Mr. A originally owns the land of 4 hectares...he sold the 4 hectares of land to Mr. X..along the way Mr. A bought back the 1 hectare from Mr. X and sold it to Mr. B who in turn is dead and left this land to his 2 children.This is the land that we bought now. We have a copy of the deed of sale between Mr. A and Mr.B.

Even the children of Mr. A said that they own that land and not Mr. A. Mr. A has a caretaker of his 3 hectares of land and even said that Mr. A does not own the land we have now. We made soem improvements in the area and no one approached us and say that its their land.

Tanong ko lang po:

1. anong puwedeng gawin dito para ma cancel yong existing title

2. bakit po nasama sa title ni Mr. X yong land pero walang record na makita sa assessors office saying about it..they even give us a certificate na si mr.B yong nakasulat na owner doon..

sumasakit na ulo ko nitong problema na ito...

sana po matulungan ninyo ako...

the problem with some assessor's offices is that they are not very strict with controls unlike the RD.

so there is a title of 4 has covering the entire area?

Where is Mr. X? One easy remedy is to request him to agree to a deed of partition and sale for the 1 hectare part. it will be treated as a regular sale of land.
