LRA set to complete computerization of RDs

(The Philippine Star) | Updated May 27, 2013 - 12:00am
MANILA, Philippines - The Land Registration Authority (LRA) announced that it would complete the upgrading of all Registries of Deeds (RD) offices by the end of this year. This includes the renovation and refurbishment of all RD offices and their connection to the LRA central office, to allow landowners gain nationwide access to their land titles through the local RD in their area.
“The RD offices had to be physically reconfigured because the computerization program requires an environment that is modern to house all the computerized systems, and also appealing to the transacting public,” LRA deputy administrator Ronald Ortile said.
He said the central office is now connected to 129 RDs, representing 92 percent of LRA’s computerized transactions. Ortile also disclosed that 22.1 million titles have been scanned, 21.2 million of them already encoded and saved at the LRA database.
With the refurbished RD offices in place, the landowners can now secure certified true copies (CTC) of their land titles in any of the computerized RDs all over the country. “They just need to go to the nearest computerized RD or Extension Office to initiate the transaction,” said Ortile.
Ortile explained that land owners could actually save time and money by using the LRA’s anywhere-to-anywhere (A2A) service. He said “If a client based in Quezon City wants to obtain a CTC of a land title stored in and RD located in Davao City, all the client needs to do is to go to the Quezon City RD and request for such document. He will actually save on travel and accommodation costs.”
Ortile said banks and financial institutions can benefit from the A2A because the service makes land transactions more efficient, with many of them already conducting representations with the LRA to set up extension offices in their respective offices to avail themselves of the A2A service.
Land owners and financial institutions can also check the status of their transactions online through the LRA online tracking system (LOTS) found in their website,
LRA encourages the public to know more about their computerized services by calling their main office at (02) 925-6609.
