LRA Fasttracks Land Title Computerization

The Land Registration Authority (LRA) is accelerating its computerization of all land titles in the Philippines, timed with the observance of its 110th anniversary today (Feb.1) at the LRA headquarters on East Avenue, Quezon City.

Guest of honor and speaker at the event is Justice Secretary Leila de Lima. The LRA is administratively under the Department of Justice (DOJ).

The Justice Secretary's speech will be preceded by a switch-on ceremony, showing an illuminated map that indicates registries of deeds nationwide that are online to the main database at the LRA head office.

Billed "Land Titling Computerization Project," the conversion from paper-based titles to electronic titles, is a public-private partnership (PPP) agreement between the LRA and the Land Registration Systems, Inc. (Lares).

As of latest count, about 92% of 12 million old paper land titles have been converted into digital files, making LRA the biggest data bank of one of the most important documents on the most valuable asset of the country, and of individuals and corporations.

This was according to LRA administrator Eulalio C. Diaz III, who added that the Agency is "on a fast track mode in encouraging land owners to surrender their old titles for conversion into computerized titles for their protections."

Earlier, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas issued a circular to all banks and financial institutions asking them to join the title conversion drive.

Administrator Diaz provides leadership to 167 registries of deeds offices nationwide.

Land titles in cyberspace will enable every land title holder to have access to needed information about "their prized possession."

Ronald A. Ortile, LRA deputy administrator, said e-Titles are free from damage or loss. "Even if an RD office is gutted by fire for some reason, we can always reconstruct the same database," he pointed out.

The LRA data base cannot be hacked. "All our on-line registries have an access code, username, and password. Anyone using our computers can be tracked," Diaz said.

Computerization is also an effective antidote to he fake land titles. "It's easy to verify titles the moment they are brought to us for registration," said Diaz.

The LRA has also created Task Force Titulong Malinis (Clean Title), which investigates fraudulently prepared titles. The task force has gained broad-bsed support from other government offices.

Users can also avail of the anywhere-to-anywhere service (A2A), with which they can request CTCs from any RD or extension office operating under the new automated system, as contrasted to doing it only at the RD office where their title was registered.

The A2A service also provides access to the parcel verification system (PVS), so users can get printouts of their lot configuration based on the technical description of the original land title.
