Dagupan deeds registry moves to new office

DAGUPAN CITY – Upgraded services for its clientele will follow the transfer of Registry of Deeds to its new office. Officially launched for business at its recently-constructed edifice beside the Sangguniang Panlungsod building at the City Hall Complex last October 30, the local deeds registry is all set for full-digitization of land title records and in unveiling the online land registration system (LARES), said deeds registrar Atty. Rufino Moreno Jr. Moreno said to make way for the modernization of the registry’s service, Registry of Deeds requested for a new location conducive for the improvements. The request was granted by the City Mayor’s Office through a usufructuary agreement or common ownership with the City Government as mandated by a local council’s resolution. The national government agency has abandoned its former location at the ground floor of the City Hall Complex’s east wing building. Sporting a bank-like setup with the clients transacting through windows, the new local deeds registry office, Rufino said, will “enable all transactions to be transparent as it will lessen the contact as well as familiarity of patrons with the personnel.” He also announced that over 93,000 deeds had already been digitized by the agency for easy archiving and retrieval. Moreno also bared that by Nov. 5, the LARES will be up for operational testing. “These changes were planned to level up with the global standards [of titles registration] and improve the service to our people, making it more transparent, efficient and secured,” the deeds registrar asserted. Cutting the ribbon signifying the formal opening of the office for business were City Administrator Vlad Mata, on Mayor Benjamin S. Lim’s behalf, and Councilor Jesus Canto while the Msgr. Rafael Magno of St. John Metropolitan Cathedral, who also officiated the inaugural mass, blessed the edifice. (CIO)
