Land Title in Bohol

Public land settlers who have been there for more than ten years get a chance to claim titles for their residential lots as the government eases the requirements and procedures.
By this, the lengthy court debacles for owners who have to wait for the court approval as demanded by the Public Land Law, has simply been scrapped in favor of the DENR title approval, research showed.

This window of opportunity takes effect after former President Gloria Arroyo signed it into law last March.
Known as Republic Act 10023, the act authorizes the issuance of free patents to residential lots has just had its implementing rules and regulations, but the environment department picks Bohol as its pilot site, reveals DENR Undersecretary Regidor de Leon.
The undersecretary came to Bohol in time for the 114th Carlos P. Garcia Day in lieu of secretary Ramon Jesus Paje who was still on an engagement abroad.
Bohol would be the first among the provinces, said the environment undersecretary as he aired the department’s confidence that the program runs well in a province where environment and natural resource protection and conservation is on top of the agenda.
Citing the successful crafting of the country’s first environment code, Usec. De Leon said that the choice for Bohol would also open up the chances of some 103,000 residential lots to benefit from the move.
In the first year of program implementation however, the DENR said they expect about 20,000 titles for beneficiaries as the remaining 80,000 plus lots first need to be reclassified, a task that would entail a fast-tracked action by the local legislative bodies.
The environment bigwig said the first 20,000 lots are those from the towns, which have already approved Comprehensive Land Use Plans (CLUP).
Free patent law covers only agricultural lands and so a local legislation action is needed to make the local land use plans jibe with the law to facilitate titling.

We now urge local officials to fast-track the approval of CLUPS to let us cover the remaining 80,000 lots.
He stressed that aside for a potential source of revenues for local governments, titling grants owners a tenurial instrument that also makes them pay annual taxes to the benefit of local governments.
The DENR boasts of streamlined titling processes that makes the move cost-efficient, less hassles and allows owners an assured titles in 120 days. (racPIABohol)
