LGU’s Guidebook for Local Housing Project/Program

1

FOREWORD The enactment of landmark legislations such as the Local Government Code of 1991 and the Urban Development and Housing Act of 1992 paved the way for the empowerment of Local Government Units (LGUs) and vesting in them the primary responsibility for delivering housing services in their respective constituencies. To enable the LGUs take on their new responsibilities as providers of adequate and decent housing more effectively, it is incumbent upon the national government to guide the LGUs through the processes involved as well as help build their technical and financial capabilities in housing provision. The degree with which the success of local housing initiatives can be measured largely hinges on the active participation and collaboration among all the sectors concerned. Thus, it is highly imperative that the necessary linkage is established at the national and local levels and between government and nongovernment entities to ensure that the appropriate information flows across and is shared by various stakeholders. With the end in view of guiding the LGUs on the planning and implementation aspects of local housing, HUDCC embarked on the development of this guidebook which will serve as a tool to further strengthen their capabilities and widen their information base relative to housing. Moreover, this guidebook provides answers to questions frequently asked by the LGUs and presents a stepby-step procedure in the development of local housing projects. Therefore, it is my fervent hope that this guidebook will be of great help to its intended end-user, the LGUs, whose key role in the government’s overall shelter program and its concommitant socio-economic benefits is deemed the most crucial and indispensable to the success of the program.

SITE SELECTION What steps are to be followed in selection of site for local housing? Following are the parameter to be observed on site selection: 1. Inventory and profile of available sites. 2. Location and quality of site (accessibility to infrastructures and employment, quality of site, land ownership, basic services, utilities and cost). 3. For resettlement site, location criteria of affected people and comparative analysis of possible sites. 4. Safe from both environment and man-made hazards. What factors should be considered in site selection? Select the site of your housing program based on the expressed preferences of your beneficiaries. Note, however, that the site should have access to transportation and should have provisions for basic services and support facilities. It will be easier and faster to set up your program if the site is owned by the local government or will be acquired by the local government. A sample format for site evaluation is provided in Annex C. What are the priorities in the acquisition of land for local housing? The priorities in the acquisition of land are: 1. Idle government or private lands 2. Unregistered or abandoned idle lands 3. Alienable lands of the public domain. How to acquire the land for housing program? The following are the various modes of land acquisition: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Negotiated purchase Joint-venture agreement Land banking Land swapping Usufructuary arrangement Expropriation Presidential Proclamation

11

The local government unit has several options for land acquisition: Direct purchase at a price agreed upon with the owner Donation by land owner to the local government unit Transfer of title by a national government agency to the local government unit Usufructory agreement with a national government agency As an alternative, the local government unit may opt to assist its beneficiaries in acquiring the lot, e.g. through the Community Mortgage Program or similar schemes. OVERVIEW OF TITLE RESEARCH An important step in ensuring the validity and sustainability of housing projects is extensive title research on lands. The following is an overview of steps to be undertaken by the researcher: 1. Checking with Register of Deed’s (RD’s)Copy 2. Checking all entries of the Transfer Certificate of Title (TCT) – including technical description, liens, encumberances, etc. 3. Traceback of Original Certificate of Title (OCT) 4. Traceback to origin of TCT a. Judicial (from tax declaration) - LRA b. Free patent DENR-LMB 5. Checking of liens and encumberances, mortgages 6. Checking of Adverse claimants a. Extrajudicial partition with SPA b. Extrajudicial partition with Sale 7. Identification of all heirs including declared illegitimate children 8. Checking Tax declaration for consistency with municipal ordinance (declared residential for tax purposes but no corresponding ordinance) REQUIREMENTS IN THE ISSUANCE OF PROCLAMATIONS/ RESERVATIONS In order to expedite the processing of requests for Presidential Proclamations pursuant to Presidential Memorandum Circular No. 28 dated 19 January 1993, which provides for a checklist on request Presidential issuances, the following documents/requirements must be complied with for the information and guidance of all concerned 1. 2.

BENEFICIARY SELECTION What are the criteria for beneficiary selection? Resettlement/Relocation Poor families qualified for relocation and resettlement and assistance under the Urban Development Housing Act of 1992 (RA 7279) Underprivileged and homeless citizens whose average or combined family income fall within the poverty threshold Those who do not own any real property and have not been beneficiaries of any government housing program except on leasehold or rental arrangement. First Priority Target project beneficiaries Second priority - Open Market Typical Low-cost housing project Member of good standing in any of the three institutions: Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), Social Security System (SSS), or Home Development Fund (HDMF) Has not availed of any housing loan from either the SSS, GSIS, HDMF or any financing institutions as a principal borrower or co-obligor. He must not own any residential unit in the capacity as a sole owner or coowner The Local Government Unit can still provide additional criteria which they deemed necessary. How to organize the beneficiaries? Most of the beneficiaries of housing projects are naturally organized, i.e. they are grouped together based on their places of work and profession (e.g. teachers, police, soldiers and trade union members). For these groups, processing of requirements of their housing loans would be easy. Leaders of said groups may be tapped to assist their respective groups. However, there are also non-organized beneficiaries such as Overseas Filipino Workers, informal settlers and other individual borrowers who may need to be organized in the early stages of project implementation so that it will be easier to process the requirements for take-out of their housing loans by the concerned government agencies. Non-government organizations may be tapped to assist in organizing the beneficiaries.
