The title on my property in Baguio reads It is herby certified that certain land situated in the barrio of Tocmo,.....bounded and describedas follows ........description.... is registerd in accordance with the provisions of the property registration decree in the name of Cherry icasama Cooney a filipino married to tim cooney a united states citizen both of legal age with postal residence and postal address ect. ect.
The reason I did it this way is I know a filipina who was married to a non filipino and thats the way their title was and when they got a divorce his signature was required before she could sell the property. I am not saying that there isn't someone who would forge his name or the corruption being what it is down there someone could get paid but I feel pretty confident with my name on the title. As long as I have the original title it would be hard for someone to sell the property especially with my name on it.
