        c. Registration from the Register of Deeds of Deed of Sale and other alienations such as Donations,     Adjudication per Assessor’s Manual, Annex A.

2. In case this CLOA is covered by an existing tax declaration, the tax declaration shall be presented so that it can be cancelled in case this is a voluntary offer to sell by the landlord.

For the CLOA that are having an encumbrance showing on the face or back of the CLOA that it is not yet fully paid, the encumbrance shall also be annotated in the tax declaration issued and on the other tax declaration,  the same annoatation is made since the tax declaration with different declarant is not cancelled.

  1. how to transfer from CLOA to a clear CTC?

    • Dear Jojit,

      First of all, thank you for log-in in our website.

      Your inquiry about how to transfer from CLOA to a clear CTC? May be it is TCT (Transfer Certificate of Title). To answer that, you must first abide the condition set by the CLOA Title which state that “that it shall not be sold, transferred or conveyed except through hereditary succession, or to the Government, or to the Land Bank of the Philippines, or to the other qualified beneficiaries for a period of ten (10) years.” You must wait first the completion on the prohibition period of ten (10) years before you can transfer the title.

      Secondly, you must submit the following documents to ROD (Registry of Deeds), as for in case of Deed of Absolute Sale document;
      1. Deed of Sale duly notarized and stamp paid from the BIR;
      2. Copy of the Original Owner’ Copy of title;
      3. As for in case of portion only of the lot, blue print of Subdivision Plan duly approved from Land Management Service (LMS-DENR);
      4. Certificate Authorizing Registration (CAR) issued by BIR, this is in payment for Capital Gain Tax and Documentary Stamp Tax;
      5. Tax Clearance Certificate from Local Treasurer Office, this is in relation to payment of real property taxes;
      6. Official Receipt on the payment of Transfer Fee;
      7. A copy of certified true copy of tax declaration.

      Thank you very much,

    Hi Sir,

    Good day to you.

    I’m planning to buy a CLOA titled agricultural land from my Aunt. She never paid anything to Land Bank nor process the TCT after it was awarded to her in 1996. Would there be a problem if she will transfer the rights to me and I will be the one to process the TCT? Is there a grace period set by DAR to obtain a TCT otherwise the land will be forfeited? Can I get a Certified True Copy of Ownership directly from Registry of Deeds because some farmers kept the original copies and are not willing to share them with us?

    My grandmother also owned a CLOA title and paid her obligations to Land Bank. The agent who is processing the TCT since 2008 is asking her to prepare around Php500,000.00. Is this legitimate and reasonable amount to complete the whole process of obtaining a TCT?

    Thank you Sir for your help and God bless you more.

    • Chinita,

      Thanks for visiting our website.
      Your inquiry is about acquiring a property with CLOA Title. Yes, your Aunt may transfer the rights to you. You will need for prepare a Deed of Conveyance (either Deed of Donation or a simple DOS) and of course you’ll also to pay to the LBP. Under CLOA title there is a prohibited period of 10 years that the property shall not be sold, but since it was awarded in 1996 it is already elapsed. Yes you can request a certified true copy (CTC) of the title at ROD. Just present the Lot No. of the property and the CLOA Title No. to them.

      The cost of 500T is too much and I believe this is not a legitimate. Seek or ask first to govt. offices like the BIR for the payment of Capital Gain Tax (if Sale), or Donor Tax (if Donation),etc.., at the ROD for registration fees and the Assessor’s Office for Real Property Taxes.
      If you have time, you can process it personally so can be able to know the actual cost for the processing of all the documents.

      • chinita1979 says:

        Thank you Sir for your reply. I was told that this cloa property has lis pendens. Will it affect the processing of title? Please advise.

      • Yes, it will definitely affect the titling process. LIS PENDENS (Sec.76 of PD-1529) is a memorandum or notices stating the institution of court action or proceeding in court together with the Writ of Execution thereof and the Certificate of Title number of the affected land shall be filed and registered at the ROD. So, there must an annotation in the Title, it should be cleared first before you can proceed the processing of your documents.Verify at the court on what is the pending case of the Title.

  3. I bought land which is CLOA title and I have an Absolute Deed of Sale and the original title in the original owners name. The problem is the previous owner says she acquired another title from the (ROD) . I have spent millions of pesos building a house and garage, also planting coconuts and soon sugar cane on the property. I have not seen the title she speaks of, but I feel threatened by what she says. Does she have a legal right to do this AFTER she already sold the land me. (I bought over 4 years ago) By the way I have processed all of the requirements listed above.
    Yours sincerely,
    Michelle Russack

    • Thanks for visiting our website.
      Since you have already the DOS and Titles, to eliminate your worries better check or verify the other title (previous owner) at ROD. You can check that documents by presenting the the LOT NO. of your CLOA title. If the previous owner saying that he/she has another title, may be it is already CANCELLED. You must verify also at the Assessor’s Office if there is an existing tax declaration of the CLOA title and also to the previous owner.
      It is advisable to process all your documents so that the ROD shall issue now your new title in your name (Transfer Certificate of Title).

  4. Our local DAR/PARO told me when I was trying to process the CLOA land titles into my name that I could not do this because the titles are under the Agrarian Reform and cannot be sold. But on the titles it says that it cannot be sold “before ten years”. In my case the Original Owner had the land for about 16 years before he sold it to us. Title is dated 1993.
    I processed all the papers such as Tax declaration (I paid the back taxes the original owner did not pay-although he signed in front of my lawyer when I bought the land that there were no encumbrances), Capital gains tax return, Declaration of real property and also a certification from the Office of the Municipal Assessor, as well as the Office of the Provincial Assessor that declares the original owner whom we bought the land from was in fact the genuine owner. Also from the Office of the City Assessor, upon my request I have a certification for the purpose of securing ESTATE TAX CLEARANCE from the BIR. This also states that the original owner never declared that land for tax purposes. I paid the necessary fees so things would be in order. I am now abroad and have all original documents with me.
    Is there any more documents that I would need to be able to apply for a title into my name from ROD? Also what sort of title is it called then? (i.e. I want a CLEAR TORRENS title)
    Yours faithfully,
    Michelle Russack

    • If have already completed all the documentations from the Assessor’s Office, Tax Clearances from BIR, and also the important DAR Clearance (if Agricultural), submit all your documents to ROD for registration of your Deed of Conveyance (DOS) and for titling of your new Transfer Certificate of Title (TCT). I dont understand the advice from DAR that you could not process your papers, the prohibition period has already been lapsed. Ask them for the legal basis on why they cannot process or seek a lawyer for this purpose.

  5. Just want to seek your assistance po regarding land ownership of tenants like my father.
    Nakikisaka or nakikisama po ang aking tatay. Pangalan po nya ang gamit nya sa mga ticket sa truck sa pag papatubo. Ang lupang sinasaka po ng aking tatay ay sa batangas kung saan tubo po ang pangunahing sinasaka. Ang lolo ko po, ama ng tatay ko ay meron din po sinasaka. Un nga lang po mas malaki ung sukat ng lupa ng tatay ko. Tulad ng tatay, nakpangalan sa lolo ko ang bawat transakyon sa amo namin (may ari ng lupa). 5 po ang magkakapatid ang mga tatay ko. Padalawa po sa panganay ang tatay. Ung panganay kong tito ay may sariling trabaho at ung 2 kong titia ay ganun din po. Mula po ng mamatay ang lolo ko, sa tita ko pong bunso ipinangalan ung lupang sinasaka ng lolo ko. Sa madaling salita, pangalan na ng tita ko ang ginagamit nya, Ngayon po, napagdesisyonan po ng amo namin na sukatin na po ang lupang sinasaka ng tatay at ng tiya ko at ibibgay na po sa amin ang ikatlo.
    Ano po ba ang tamang hatian? Kxe po pinagtutulung tulungan po kmi ng tito at 2 kong tita. Meron daw po silang kasulatan na nagpapatunay na ang lupang sinasaka ng tatay ko ay nkapangalan sa lolo namin kung kayat dapat daw po na pagsamahin ang lupang sinasaka ng lolo at tatay ko and then hatiin daw po sa limang magkakapatid.. ung isa ko pong tita na nasa abroad ay ndi nkikihati at ndi naman daw po sya nagpakahirap magtrabahao sa lupa. Mulat sapol po ay ang tatay ko at lolo ko lang po ang nagtrabaho and the later on ung tita ko po after mamatay ang lolo namin.
    Sa totoo lang po, wala naman po silang kasulatan na nagpapatibay. Hindi po ba ang may karapatan na magdesisyon ay ang may ari ng lupa kung kanino nya ibibigay ang hatian ta discretion na lang ng tatay at tita ko kung hahatian ung ibang kapatid sa makukuha nilang lupa? Pakiramdam po kxe namin ggawan po nila ng paraan na mahati sa lima. pag nagkataon po, nakinabang po sila pero ndi naman po sila nagtrabaho ng literal sa lupa.
    Sna po ay matulungan nyo kmi na mabigyan ng magandang payo. Itatanong ko na din po kung kanino kmi ppde lumapit. Meron na po kme nakuhang abogado. Natatakot po kxe kmi na baka gamitan nila ng lagay ung ibang opisyal ng DAR para pumanig sknila.
    Maraming Salamat po.
    Best regards,

    • Reah,

      Sorry for the late reply. With regards sa problema mo, sa ownership sa lupang sinasaka ng Lolo mo kung ibibigay na ito ng may-ari ng lupa (amo) nya (1/3 portion) it should be divided into five (5) silang mga anak ng Lolo mo. Kasi we have to follow our law, or else magiging malaking problema ito sa pamilya nyo. Pero kung in case ang may ari ng lupa ibinigay ito sa tatay mo in his name, wala ng share ang mga tito at tita mo.
      Tama pong maghanap ka nang magaling na abogado, yong lawyer na bihasa sa mga legal issue about sa lupa specially related to the agrarian reform cases. And see to it na hindi sya bias to the other party (sa mga tito at tita mo.).

      Good luck and God Bless.

  6. Dear Sir,

    Been searching for information regarding CLOA and your blog is the answer to my questions.
    I am planning to buy a farm lot under Right but with CLOA although I am a bit doubtful about its legalities and the future problem I may encounter regarding DAR. However, based on your replies for the previous posts, it seems fine to buy CLOA from the person who has been awarded. I also realized that it is fine to process the TCT if 10 years has lapsed already.

    What are the things that I have to secure first from the owner (person awarded) to make sure that the documents I need are complete.

    Thank you so much. Your reply will truly enlighten me.

    Best regards,
    Edz

    • Dear Edz,
      Sorry for the late reply, we are having internet problem right here in Leyte. Anyway for your inquiries,
      first ask from the lot owner a photo copy of the CLOA Title then verify it personally at the ROD for authenticity of the title. Verify also at the Assessor Office if the CLOA has already current tax declaration in the name of the owner. Ask also the from the Treasury Office if the real property tax are paid for the current year. And lastly, has an ocular inspection of the property if it has a tenant or improvements or verify the actual condition or boundaries of the lot. If every thing is okay, contact a lawyer to prepare for the Deed of Absolute Sale. Don’t forget from the owner to get all the documents that is related to the property that you are to going to buy especially the original copies.

      Thank you.

    Hello Sir,

    Magandang umaga!

    Ako po ay nagpapasalamat dahil natagpuan ko ang blog na ito.

    Sir, hingi sana ako ng payo nyo tungkol sa lupa ng father ko na naka-VOS at na approved sa taong 2002 at ang CLOA ay naka pangalan sa Uncle ko. Ang agreement (verbal only) ng father at uncle ko ay tatayo sya as DUMMY dahil ng panahon na iyon hindi pa ako sa legal na edad.

    Sa ngayon sobra na sa sampung taong ang nakalipas at gusto ng father ko na ma transfer sa name ko, pero dini-deny na ng uncle ko na DUMMY sya at gustong angkinin ang lupa. Sa kasalukuyan hindi na kami pwedeng gumalaw sa lupa dahil siya na daw ang nag mamay-ari. Masakit ito para sa father ko at sa aming mga magkakapatid lalo na’t wala kaming proof na DUMMY ang uncle ko dahil ito ay verbal agreement only.

    Ito po ang aking mga katanungan:
    1. Bilang isang orihinal na nag mamay-ari ng lupa, may karapatan pa ba ang father ko sa
    lupa kahit na ito ay already approved/awarded sa uncle ko?
    2. May paraan pa ba na pwede naming gawin para ma restore namin ang lupa?
    3. Pwede bang mag file for withdrawal ng VOS?

    Maraming salamat po!

    Lubos na Gumagalang,
    Noybem

    • Dear Noybem,

      Good day. Medyo complicated ang problem nyo sa lupa. Since awarded na ito sa uncle mo medyo mahihirapan na po kayong makuha ang lupang ito sa uncle mo. Unless may consensya ang uncle mo na they have a “gentlemen agreement” between ng father mo. What you would do is try to visit your local DAR office to verify who is the actual beneficiary of that land. If it is your father who is the actual beneficiary, you can now file for cancellation of title to the DARAB (Dept. of Agrarian Reform Adjudication Board). Also, consult a lawyer about your situation for legal advice.

    Hi Sir,

    I’m glad nakita ko ang blog nyo, ang case ko po kasi is, bumili ng lot ang parents ko nung naka abroad ako and ngayong umuwi ako ittransfer ko na po sana sa name ko kasi di pa naasikaso ng parents ko maliban sa pagbabayad ng realty tax. Nung pumunta ako sa RD para magpa annotate sana, ang sabi po sa akin doon eh hindi ko maittransfer ang title sa akin kailangan pa daw po ma “upgrade” ng title dahil CLOA(awarded 1991) lang ang hawak ko, kailangan ko daw po kumuha ng court order. Sa pagbabasa ko po dito wala ako nakita nangangailangan ng court order lalo na ang “upgrade” na tinutukoy. sana po matulungan nyo ako. Salamat

    • Dear Aila,

      Thanks for visiting our website. Your inquiry is about the transfer of real property pero ang title is CLOA. If the date of issuance of title is in 1991 it means na nag lapsed na ang prohibited period of 10 years as indicated on the face of the CLOA. Puede mo na yan ma process to transfer into your name. I presume na ang Deed of Sale ay sa pangalan mo. Kung sa parents mo napangalan pa, you would need another Deed of Conveyance before ma transfer sa iyo.

      With regards sa “upgrade” sa title, I think there is no legal basis about that. To clarify the issue I advice you to go to the DAR office, ask them what is this “upgrade”. The best thing to do now is to start the processing of your documents: Go to the Assessor’s Office request for CTC of tax declaration, certificate of no improvement; pay the rpt tax for current year, pay also the transfer fee at treasury office. Then go to BIR for the payment for Capital Gain Tax and Documentary stamp tax. Upon issuance of CAR (Cert. Authorizing Registration) by the BIR, proceed to ROD for registration of your document and issuance of new title. But prior to that you would need the DAR Clearance because it is classified as agricultural land that is subject to such clearance. And dont forget if you have already the title (in your name), you still shall to go to the Assessor’s Office for the transfer of Tax Declaration into your name.

  9. Gud day sir, nakabili ako ng portion sa isang CLOA na land pero hindi pa lumagpas ng sampung taon ang pag grant nito. Ang worry ko po is baka biglang mamatay yung owner baka wala na akong habol sa lupa since yung mga heirs niya ang magti take over sa lupa. Ano kaya ang gagawin ko sa situation na ito?Thank you in advance sir

    • Mark,

      Thanks for visiting our website. Under CLOA title, there are prohibition period that the property should not be sold with in 10 years. Because of that hindi ka makapag-process sa pag trasnfer of title into your name. Naturally, malaking problema kung ang original owner ay mawala na, and the heirs will automatically possessed the property. What you should do is to have an annotation sa nabili mong lupa. Dalhin mo ang DOS together with the “Original Owner’s Copy” of the title to ROD for annotation of your legal claim (portion only). Kung annotated na sa title ang nabili mong lupa, wala nang makaka-claim na iba even sa mga heirs sa nabilhan mong lupa.

  10. Salamat po at may ganitong site napakalaking tulong po nito sa amin patungkol po sa CLOA.
    May lupa po kami sa probinsya nakapangalan sa lolo ko ang amilyar,nakafile po sa RD since April 1990 ang Extra-judicial settlement of unregistered land with waiver of right ni lola (para po sa apat na anak nya kabilang po ang nanay ko), mayroon din po approved advance plan of lots file 1984, bayad po estae tax at may affidavit of publication din pero di po natapos mapatitulo ng nanay ko dahil namatay po sya at hindi po napagpatuloy.
    Anim po kami magkakapatid at isa po sa kapatid ko ay nakatira sa probinsya nalaman na lang po namin na nagkaroon na ng titulo ang lupa namin under CLOA(et al po sa mga kapatid ni nanay) kaya lang po ang parte ni nanay ay napangalan sa kapatid ko na nakatira sa probinsya. Ang CLOA po ay year 2000 at nais po namin magkakapatid na makuha na po ang aming parte sa lupa? Sabi po sa DAR sa Quezon City ay maari namin transfer dahil sa amin naman ang lupa pero ang MARO at PARO po ay gusto po ay CLOA pa rin pag individual at intay na naman kami ng 10 years bago namin pwede mailipat sa amin magkakapatid. Magkaiba po ang sinasabi ng MARO ay PARO sa probinsya at DAR sa quezon city. Ano po ang dapat naming gawin?

    • Good day Adela,
      Salamat po for visiting our website. First of all, yung mga documents nyo na nakafile sa ROD since 1990 ay medyo wala nang bisa because nagkaroon na nang title ang property under CLOA, and still in the name of her siblings which include ang nanay mo but represented sa kapatid mo. You can get nalang all the documents at ROD for your at least personal copy na lang. Baka magamit pa yan in the future. With regards to your inquiry, since wala na ang nanay mo, you can directly transfer the title to you and of course to your mga kapatid.You should prepare legal document para ma-transfer sa inyo, the document is either Extra-Judicial Partitions among sa nanay (represented sa kapatid mo) mo at kapatid nya, or you can prepare an Adjudication document na kinukuha nyo ang share nang nanay mo. To do this, you will need a lawyer. If you have already the document, you can now start the process by paying the RPT tax, Estate tax at BIR, approved subdivision plan, etc. .and then the registration of the Deed of Conveyance and the issuance TCT at ROD. By the way, in transferring of title you’ll need the original duplicate copy of title.There is no need anymore to wait for 10 years kasi directly to be transfer naman sa inyo. Dont you worry sa mga opinion nang MARO and PARO,as long as you follow the legal process sa mga documents mo.

    magandang araw po!
    gusto ko po malaman kung safe po ba ung binenta sakin na kapirasong lote under c.l.o.a.
    1,600sq. m po ung buong lupa,
    binenta po saken ung 400sq.m. at gumawa lng po kami nang kasulatan at ipina notaryo sa abugado.
    - sapat na po ba ang kasulatan na hawak ko?
    - pwede po ba mailipat sa name ko ung lote para hiwalay ang pagbayad sa land bank?
    -anu-anu po ba ang mga dapat gawin para malipat sa pangalan ko ung 400sq. m na nabili ko?
    * more than 10yrs. na po awarded sa kanila ung c.l.o.a ,
    *he never paid anything to Land Bank nor
    process the TCT after it was awarded to him.

    sana po mapaliwanagan nyo ako.

    maraming salamat po.

    • Dear Melvin,

      Thanks for visiting our website. With regards to buying a real property, the most important thing is dapat you have the legal document. It means a deed of conveyance, in this case Deed of Absolute Sale na naka-notarized. In your case, don’t you worry because you have the necessary legal papers. With regards to payment to Land Bank hindi puede pa ma-segregate ang 400 sq.m. na nabili mo unless you are fully-paid sa Land Bank. Since you want to separate sa nabili mo ikaw ang magbabayad lahat sa Land Bank. Sa pag transfer of property ito ang dapat gawin mo; a.) The DOS should be registered at ROD; b.) Approved subdivision plan (by LMS-DENR), because portion lang ang nabili mo. You will hire a geodetic engineer or surveyor for this; c. Pay the Capital Gain Tax, DST at BIR; d.) Get tax clearance from your local treasurer; e.) Pay the transfer fee at the local tresurer; f.) Get certified copies of tax declaration, and certificate of no improvement at the local assessor; g.) Pay the registration fee at ROD; and DAR Clearance if the property is classified as agricultural land.

    hi sir,

    good day sir! this blog really is a big help.

    i have a concern that ill refer to you below.

    i am presently processing the requirements for DAR clearance which is needed for transfer of title of the CLOA awarded parcel of land to my father’s name. one requirement is the income tax return of the vendee. in this case, may father had already retired since 1995 and thus, does not have an income tax return. ano po ba ang pwedeng replacement kung walang income tax return ang vendee (my father in this case).

    the CLOA was awarded last 2001 and the Deed of Sale was notarized last 2003 and the CAR was already issued. will this DEED of SALE still enforceable considering na hindi umabot ng 10 years prohibition pero nabili na ng father ko ang pupa?

    thanks a lot po.

    • Dear Ai-yen,

      Good day and thanks for visiting our website. Your concern is all about the CLOA title and the prohibition of it. For your first concern is the DAR requirement about the income tax return of your father which is the vendee. I believe the income tax return is not one of the requirement in getting the DAR clearance. The ITR is only requirement in BIR because of the TIN which is needed in payment of capital gain tax at that office (BIR). For what purpose of the ITR is in requirement at DAR. The concern only of DAR is for issuance of clearance certificate is that the property owner has not exceed the land ownership of more than 5 hectares. Ask them (the DAR) on the legal basis for the requirement of ITR. And the last concern is the prohibition of 10 years; in this case the notarization is within the prohibition period, medyo you have a problem on this. In your submission of documents to ROD, your DOS will not be accepted even though that you have already the CAR. It cannot be used as primary documents in transferring the ownership, because it will violate the provision in the CLOA. What you should do is to prepare another DOS (just copy the original DOS) and then have it notarized this year (2014). For this, the period has already lapsed of 10 years.

    • Dear Melyn’

      Just read two posts or emails today and thank you for visiting our website. CLOA ay titulo na issued by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR). Ito ay isang title sa lupa na inaward specially para sa mga tenant na wala pang lupa. Ito ay isang programa sa agriculture sa panahon pa ni Presidenting Marcos. Para sa mga katanungan mo before bilhin mo ang lupa, you have to verify first the following; First, ask a photocopy of the CLOA Title from the owner, have it verify at the Registry of Deeds (ROD) for the authenticity and other annotation; Second, ask sa may ari ng lupa kung bayad na ba ito sa Land Bank, kung bayad na get all the receipts, kung wala pa verify at your local Land Bank kung magkano pa ang outstanding balance; Third, verify also at your local Assessor’s Office kung may tax declaration na ito, at the same e-verify din kung bayad na po ito sa mga annual buwis sa local treasurer’s office; and the last is you should visit or you should go to where is the property is. Tingnan mo ang lugar kung wala po itong problema na property especially to the adjoining boundaries. Kung okay na po itong lahat, you can contact a lawyer para gumawa ng legal na documento o Deed of Absolute Sale (DOS). Please take note na ang CLOA ay may 10 years na prohibition period na hindi ito ay puede maibenta.
