Spearheaded by the Technical Services Division of PENRO Leyte headed by its chief, Engr. Winston Solite and in close coordination with Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) Palo, the two-day activity aimed to accept free patent applications for residential and agricultural lands; answer queries on client’s land status; provide information supplemented with IEC materials on the benefits of having a land title and the required documents in securing titles; and distribute the free patent titles which were already available at the Register of Deeds.


The two-day activity opened on September 8 at 11:30 in the morning which started with an opening ceremony. Along with the participants and consultants from partner agencies- representatives from CENRO Palo, Land Management Officers and Deputized Public Land Inspectors from DENR Regional Office and GEP, also present during the opening ceremony were the PENR Officer For.

Barcelo, who was tasked to give inspirational message, both emphasized the importance of securing land titles. Afterwards, the free-consultation started. On the afternoon of the same day while the consultation was on-going, there were series of talk shows conducted which tackled various types of land titles. This was done to inform and educate the audience about certain type of title- how it is obtained, benefits of having it and etc. The first talk show was about ‘’Land Titling on Residential and Agricultural Lands’’ with the resource speakers, Mrs.Eva Pasagui, OIC- Land Management Officer 3 of CENRO Palo and Mr. Patrick Katada, Records Officer of PENRO Leyte. Afterwards, the ‘‘Land Titling Of Public School Sites and Government Lands’’ was tackled by Engr. Winston Solite, Chief of the Technical Services Division and Atty.

Also, from time-to-time, videos about success stories of land title owners, land survey and etc. were shown. The first day ended at 6 pm.



On the second day, the consultation continued at 11 in the morning. Due to the presence of representatives from different LGUs in Leyte and other government agencies such as the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection and Department of Education, the talk show about ‘‘ Land Titling on Government Lands’’ was repeated with Engr. Solite as the resource speaker. Likewise, the discussion on ‘‘Land Titling on Residential and Agricultural Lands’’ was reiterated for another set of audience, with Development Management Officer III, Marilou Abocot and Land Management Officer II, Juan Jean Durante as the resource speakers.

The talk show aimed to cater client’s questions about issues and problems regarding land Survey. Also, a representative from the Register of Deeds was present to talk about ‘’Registration of Land Titles and Other Land Related Transactions of Registry of Deeds’’.


One of the highlights of the two-day activity was the distribution of free patent titles that were already available at the Register of Deeds.

Ramon Unay along with the representative of the Registry of Deeds, handed the free patent titles to fourteen (14) title beneficiaries.
