Securing Certified True Copies Made Easy By the Land Registration Authority’s A2A Program

Being a landowner entails a lot of nitty-gritty. In the Philippines, one of the most important documents a property owner must have are Certified True Copies (CTCs) of their real estate documents. These legal papers, which are part of due diligence when buying a property in the country, also serve as the documents validating the authenticity of the real estate. CTCs of titles serve as important requirements for functions like land transfer and purchase. Moreover, it is a primary document that is used to check the authenticity and legitimacy of a title to a property.

The Land Registration Authority (LRA) is the government agency handling the issuance of CTCs of titles in the country. In addition to this function, the LRA serves to issue decrees of registration, works to issue transfer certificates of title, and keeps a title history of record transactions of titled lands.

A Basketball Camp Fueled by The Rocket

To say that basketball is a popular sport in the Philippines is a bit of an understatement, considering that kids are taught how to play the game at a very young age. Almost every community in the country has their own basketball court and when they don’t have one, they make do with jerry-built boards and rings propped up on the streets. For many, this is where dreams of becoming a basketball star are made.

JC “The Rocket” Intal was one of those kids who dreamed big. With his determination and hard work, this former Ateneo cager was able to step foot in the PBA, and more importantly, excel in the country's premier basketball league. In fact, he was chosen to be a part of the Gilas 3.0 lineup a few years back, a team that would eventually finish an impressive Silver in the 2015 Fiba Asia Championships.
