A comment on the anti dummy laws.

If you are found to have used a dummy set up to acquire land then the transaction is voided at the time of the transaction.

My understanding is that the property will revert to the original owner, then you will have to fight to get your money if he doesn't have it or has hidden it somehow.

And lots of lawyers will produce the necessary documents to allow you to buy the property, then disappear or be somehow untouchable after the scheme falls through.

Personally I'd stick to keeping it completely above board and legal, no attempts at work around or gaming the system.

When you go to court, often the decision criteria is not what the law says, but who has the most money, you the rich foreigner or some poor local Philippine who was taken advantage of by the fast talking foreigner?

There are several examples on other threads of this, especially in regards to traffic accidents.

Gorn, while you agree, question and disagree with input from members here, that is what a forum is about and perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately we appear to be going around in circles and failing to provide the answers you want to hear especially with no given info with regards to your particular circumstances so as you can see the info is broad and purely based on individual contributors experiences, I am not an attorney and as suggested twice now from memory in previous posts that you should do yourself a simple courtesy by contacting the PRA themselves to have your questions answered accurately so you fall within the law.
My case with regards to owning buildings and leases on land falls outside the norm as our relationship is not recognised in the Philippines thus my better half becomes a seperate entity, who knows things may change in the next 10 or 20 years and deal with it we will. At the end of the day the lease is there to protect myself in case of separation but at the end of the day my last will and testament leaves the property/lease null and voided by my sister (executor) providing I see out another perhaps 20 years/natural death etc.
As suggested spend your energies with the PRA as you are obviously achieving nothing on this forum, if you do manage to secure your answers from them then come back and share.

Cheers, Steve.

Not true at all, your example provided a nice lesson in what not to do, and other posters have been rather helpful regarding what to do.

And you sir after advice to your particular needs and incessant asks continue with stupid banter about my misgivings and others misfortunes and good advice by others, guess what sunshine as advised by myself and others is to go straight to the horses mouth as many sensible folk do, myself included to get accurate answers. To date? Nada. Slack, trawling, inept? Helpful answers on an expat site are not lawful answers and you like me need to go further after the hints and baiting responses to provide answers accurate and legal.
Here say expat sites offer opinions and experience, there after, research (official) due diligence and nothing less will secure your goal, think I already asked you to come back and advise us once you have the correct legal answers, after advice, recommendations and experiences from forum members you are still dallying, procrastinating and honestly becoming a drain. Do yourself and others a favour, contact the PRA.

Cheers, Steve.
