The Land Registration Authority (LRA) on Monday said at least 93% to 95% of local government units nationwide were registered under the Registry of Deeds (RD).
“In terms of operations, ikinagagalak kong sabihin na ‘yung rise, siguro mga 93 o 95 percent,” said LRA Deputy Administrator Attorney Robert Leyretana at a public briefing.
(In terms of operations, I am happy to say that the rise, maybe about 93 or 95 percent.)
“Pero 47% palang nadi-digitalize. Kasi ang manually issued na titles ay bago mai-convert sa digital kailangan munang mai-surrender ang owners duplicate copy sa RD,” he added.
(But only 47% have been digitized. Because before you can convert manually issued titles into digital, the owner’s duplicate copy (ODC) must first be surrendered to the RD.)
Leyretana said the LRA computerization program brought many services that were not previously provided. This includes the availability of kiosk machines in malls and stakeholders like banks and government agency offices.
“Meron na kaming mga kiosk kung saan pede ka nang kumuha ng certified true copies at i-transact ang mga transaction sa lupa. Noon ang certified true copy, kailangan mo pang pumunta sa RD, but now A-to-A, anywhere to anywhere,” Leyretana said.
(We now have kiosks where you can get certified true copies and transact land transactions. Before the certified true copy, you still had to go to the RD, but now it is A-to-A, anywhere to anywhere)
He also mentioned the “E-Serbisyo Portal,” through which the public can request a document online and have it delivered door to door.
“Kagaya sa Philippine Statistics Authority, kung kukuha (ng document) pede mo nang bayaran online na rin. You will wait for a certain period of days para maibigay sa inyo,” he said.
(Just like in the Philippine Statistics Authority, you can pay online if you request a document. You will wait for a certain period of days for it to be given to you.) — DVM, GMA Integrated News
