This program is to protect your property from unlawful occupants and to efficiently utilize ejectment actions and provisional remedies available in the speedy recovery of your land or building to avoid further damage from prolonged dispossession.

The lecture will include other special laws of great concern to land developers such as Republic Act 6552 (The Maceda Law) that governs sales on installment of real property, Presidential Decree 1517 (The Urban Land Reform Law), Republic Act 7279 (The Lina Law), Tenancy law and more. It will also include essential updates on “Government Initiatives vs. Professional Squatters & Squatting Syndicates and How Your Government Can Help Property Owners”.

The training will be led by CGBP course director and lecturer, Alvin Claridades. He is the author of 18 bestselling law books such as Land Titles and Deeds, Laws on Easement, Road Right-of-Way, Building and Setback, Agrarian Law, and The Revised IRR of the National Building Code of the Philippines.

The program will also feature (Ret.) Gen. Efren Fernandez who has extensive years of experience in peacefully and effectively removing thousands of illegal dwellers. He is former president and CEO of Public Safety Mutual Benefit Funds, Inc, was undersecretary at the Department of National Defense, a PNP officer and member of Philippine Military Academy Class ’71.
