An Act Establishing the Boarding House Ordinance of Barangay 3

Proposed by : Kag. Jean Paul C. Moreno

Section 1. This act shall be known as the Boarding House Act of Barangay 3.
Section 2. The council is committed to insuring that the community members and resident are
secured in their persons and property against criminal elements. It has been observed that one of
the sources of criminality is the teeming turnout of unrecorded boarders/ real estate lessees in the
barangay. Various cases of crimes against persons and properties have been mostly attributed to
boarders or real estate lessees since they can run away easily from their temporary abode. One
solution that is seen by the council to reduce or eliminate these criminal elements is to monitor
and ascertain the character of individuals or persons who will apply as boarders or real estate
lessees in boarding houses or building spaces.
Section 3. A primary step to achieve this goal is to mandate Real Estate Lessors or Boarding
House owners and any other persons operating a similar business to require lessees or occupants
to secure and submit a clearance from the last barangay where they came from, together with a
completed personal data sheet or bio-data with an attached identification picture BEFORE they
accept or maintain them in their business.
Section 4. Responsibility of Boarding House Owners/ Lessors. The Boarding House owners or
Lessors are mandated to assume these responsibilities:
a.) To secure permits for their businesses.
b.)To require their boarders or lessees to present barangay clearances from the last place
where they came from, and attached completed personal data sheets/ bio-data with recent
identification pictures. Provided that, old boarders or those who have been boarders or lessees of
a space, a building or part of the building which is located at Barangay Three for six months
shall secure their barangay clearances herein.
c.) To submit original duplicates of their boarders or lessors clearances with said
attached personal data sheets/bio-data and identification pictures to the barangay for its records.
d.) To keep personal records of his/her boarders/ lessees containing their clearances and
personal data sheets/bio data with their recent identification pictures.
e.) To assertively remind and make certain boarders/lessees obey other local ordinances
or existing laws of the barangay and even the municipality.

Section 5. Family Boarders/Lessees. A clearance and a personal data sheet/ biodata with
identification picture from a member of the family which will wholly represent the same shall
suffice for the purpose of this ordinance. Provided, that house-helpers, maids, stay-in workers,
and other persons who stay with the residence of Family boarders shall submit individual
clearances and personal data sheets/ bio data to the boarding house owners/ lessors.
Section 6. Barangay Record. The barangay shall have a record containing the compilation of the
clearances and personal data sheets/bio data with picture of boarders/lessees submitted by their
lessors or boarding house owners.
Section 7. Violation and Penalty. Violators of this Ordinance shall be penalized as follows:
First Offense Warning Second Offense Php250.00 Third Offense Php500.00 &/or
non-issuance of Barangay Business Clearance for the following year after violation, or both
