How to detect fake titles

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — One of the biggest problems in the real estate industry is the proliferation of fake property titles. A lot of real estate buyers, investors, and lending institutions are victimized by professional syndicates and swindlers whose modus operandi is to sell fake titles to the public. Because of the rampant and continuous presence of fraudulent individuals or groups in the industry, economic development is hampered, and the victims’ businesses, and families are ruined.

In response to the alarming increase of fake titles, the Center for Global Best Practices invites you to attend an online training entitled, Best Practices in Detecting Fake Certificates of Land Titles from 1:30 to 4:45 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 15 via Zoom.

This special program will comprehensively discuss the different origins, types of titles (comprising 53 judicial and LRC forms), guidelines, information, and tools to validate the authenticity of titles. If property titles are real, how do you verify if these are still valid?  What do you do to obtain a new copy if it is destroyed or lost?

Gain first-hand knowledge and practical insights from the expert, lawyer Alvin Claridades – who is the author of more than 20 best-selling books such as Land Titles and Deeds, Laws on Easement, Road Right-of-Way, Building and Setback, and The Revised IRR of the National Building Code of the Philippines.

CGBP is an accredited training provider of the Civil Service Commission. Government employees who enroll in this training program will not be covered by Philippine Procurement Law or RA 9184 based on its Revised IRR’s Section 4.5-b, which classifies training and seminars as non-procurement activities. DBM circular 563, issued on April 22, 2016, also exempts public officials and government employees from the P2,000-limit per day on training fees.
