Here’s a step by step guide on what you need to do in transferring a land title in your name…
Step 1 ~ Go to a local attorney’s office to get your Deed of Absolute Sale notarized. If you don’t have a DOAS yet, they can make one for you. Fee is usually 1% of the selling price.
Step 2 ~ Go to the Assessor’s Office to get an Affidavit of No Improvement if there is no house built on the property. You will need to bring the Tax Declaration, photocopy of Deed of Absolute Sale and your residence certificate.
Step 3 ~ Go to the Land Tax Division to get an Order of Payment. You’ll need to bring the Tax Declaration and and Land Tax Receipt.
Step 4 ~ Go back to the Assessor’s Office to pay for the Transfer Tax. You’ll need two photocopies of the DOAS and Tax Declaration.
Step 5 ~ Go to the BIR or Bureau of Internal Revenue for payment of Documentary Stamps and Expanded Withholding Tax (EWT). You will need to bring both the original and a photocopy of the Title, Affidavit of No Improvement, Certificate of No Improvement, Tax Declaration, Tax Receipt. This usually takes a month.
Step 6 ~ Go to the Register of Deeds for the proper Registration of Title. You will need to bring original copies of title, DOAS with stamp, doc stamp receipt, EWT Receipt, Tax Clearance, Transfer Tax, Tax Declaration
Step 7 ~ Go back to the Assessor’s Office to request for a new copy of tax declaration of the lot or house and lot under the buyer’s name. You will need to bring photocopy of new title, DOAS, transfrer tax, tax declaration, tax receipt, tax clearance.
