Requesting for a Certified True Copy from the Registry of Deeds

One of the things I needed to do during my stay in Manila was to check/confirm our condominium ownership at the Registry of Deeds in Mandaluyong. There was nothing wrong with it. In fact, we have the certificate of title with us. I just wanted to make sure since we got a clean title even though we have mortgaged the property with a bank when we had it financed through bank financing. Anyway, a clean title is good for us.

What isn’t good is the state of the government office I went to. This is the Registry of Deeds of Mandaluyong along Boni Avenue. I find it in a sorry state:-(.

Anyway, I requested for a copy of the title and the Deed of Sale. It took a few seconds for the certificate of title to appear. But I was told that I can get a certified true copy after 3 days. I rested my case.

There was no point in going back to pick up a document which I have an original copy of. I really had no need for it but I just found it frustrating that it would take that long to request for one.

  2. From tagum city po ako .. Ni request ko po ang certified copy of land title ng lolo ko .ERNISTO TACA .REPRENSINTATIVE .DANILO TACA …LAND .LOCATED ..MONTIVISTA COMVAL PROVINCE .

  4. I know…. we really need to improve on document processing in the Philippines. Basically the delays are caused by corruption AND low tech processing. Corruption – as they wait for bribery from someone who needs the document urgently. The passport renewal here in Spain just takes a few minutes… yes, minutes.. while in the Philippines it takes 2 weeks, perhaps? – that is, it has already improved from before. Oh well, there’s always room for improvement and hope that things will just get better.

    1. agree, completely. what was striking there was that the document was already available in the computer. but requests for a certified true copy cannot be granted and you need to wait for 3 days. maybe they don’t trust their own computer copy that they still need to retrieve the hard copy so they could certify it as a true copy:-)… the process is just so redundant and a waste of time, money and effort.
