PETITION
COMES NOW, petitioner, LEONILO N. ANTONIO, through counsel,
unto this Honorable Court, respectfully states:

1.

Petitioner is of legal age, married and a resident of Block 6, Lot

7, Makiling St., Bermuda Country Subdivision, Pamplona, Las Pias City,


where he may be served with court processes, motions and decision.

2.

On 02 September 1998, petitioner acquired from The Insular Life

Assurance Company, Ltd. (Insular Life) by virtue of a Deed of Absolute Sale


a parcel of land covered by Transfer Certificate of Title No. T-34193 (Copies of
the Deed of Absolute Sale and the corresponding cancelled TCT No. T-34193
is attached as Annexes A and A-1, respectively.) located at Bermuda
Country Subdivision, Pamplona, Las Pias City, registered under the name of
Insular Life.

3.

The property covered by TCT No. T-70380 is more particularly

described as follows1:
1

A certified copy of the technical description of the parcel of land covered by the lost certificate of
title as certified by the Chief of the Technical Services Section of the Department of Environment and
Natural Resources (DENR) is attached herewith as Annex G.

A parcel of land (Lot 7, Blk 6, of the cons. subd. Plan Pcs-13000451, being a portion of the cons. of Lot 2, Psu-172533, Lot 2A (LRC) Psd-232288, Lot 1, (LRC) Psd-72253, & Lot 1, (LRC)
Psd=53634, (LRC) Rec. Nos. N-18807, N-15675, and N-17159),
situated in the Bo. Of Pam[plona, & culasi, Mun. of Las Pias,
Metro Manila, Island of Luzon. xxx containing an area of ONE
HUNDRED SIXTY FIVE (165) SQUARE METERS. xxx.

3.1

The lot is bounded on the NORTHEAST by Lot 8, Blk. 6 under


Certificate of Title No. T-16359 registered in the name of Cesar
G. Lansangan and Mila F. Lansangan with address at No. 31
Orbiter St., Moonwalk Village, Talon Las Pias; 2

3.2

The lot is bounded on the SOUTHEAST by Lot 9, Blk. 6 under


Certificate of Title No. T-4370 registered in the name of Mike
Pascual Opleda with address at No. 95 Rizal St., Pamplona, Las
Pias;3

3.3

The lot is bounded on the SOUTHWEST by Road Lot 8; and

3.4

Finally, it is bounded on the NORTHWEST by Lot 5, Blk. 6 under


Certificate of Title No. 104964 registered in the name of
Bonifacio S. Bismonte with address at No. 19 Lily St., Manuela
Subdivision, Pamplona, Las Pias. 4

Payment of the transfer taxes was then made with the City Treasurer of Las
Pias City (Copies of Official Receipt No. 8023851-J and the corresponding
Confirmation of Payment issued by the Office of the Treasurer is attached as
Annexes C and C-1, respectively).

Subsequently, the property was then

registered under the name of petitioner and according to the files of the
Registry of Deeds of Las Pias City (RD), a new title was issued under
Transfer Certificate of Title No. T-70380.

A copy of the Tax Declaration for Certificate of Title No. T-16359 is attached herewith as Annex

B.

A copy of the Tax Declaration for Certificate of Title No. T-4370 is attached herewith as Annex B-

1.
4

A copy of the Tax Declaration for Certificate of Title No. 104964 is attached herewith as Annex B-

2.

4.

However, petitioner never received the owners duplicate

certificate of this title. In fact, the RD does not even have any record that it
was ever released to its registered owner.

5.

Petitioner then attempted to confirm with the RD if there was

really a cancellation of T-34193 and an issuance of TCT No. T-70380.

6.

Petitioner, through counsel, in a letter dated 01 June 2010 5,

requested from Atty. Joel E. Paner (Atty. Paner), Register of Deeds of Las
Pias City, for a copy of TCT No. T-70380.

Petitioner followed up on this

request in a letter dated 09 July 2010.6

7.

Atty. Paner replied in a letter dated 27 July 2010 7 that:

xxx despite diligent efforts to locate the said title (TCT No. T70380), the same cannot be located from our files along with
Transfer Certificate of Title No. 34193 and the supposed sale
document registered with this Registry for the issuance of said
Transfer Certificate of Title No. 70380.

8.

Atty. Paner also referred in his letter two (2) books of record of

the RD.

First is the Primary Entry Book which would show that there was

indeed a registration of the sale of TCT No. T-34193 executed by Insular Life
in favor of herein petitioner. The second book is the Issuance Book which
would evidence that TCT No. T-34193 was cancelled by virtue of the issuance
of a new title of TCT No. T-70380 with issue date 05 April 1999.

9.

Thus, through Atty. Paners letter, petitioner was able to confirm

that there was indeed a cancellation of TCT No. T-34193 and an issuance of
TCT No. T-70380 but was also surprised to discover that the RD has lost the
following documents on file with it:

A copy of the letter dated 01 June 2010 is attached as Annex D.


A copy of the letter dated 09 July 2010 is attached as Annex D-1

cancelled; and

the following documents:


10.1 Pages 484-485 of the Primary Entry Book evidencing
registration of the sale of TCT No. T-34193 executed by Insular
Life in favor of herein petitioner (A copy of pages 484-485 of the
Primary Entry Book is attached as Annex E-1.);
10.2 Pages 190-191 of the Issuance Book showing that TCT No.
T-34193 was cancelled by virtue of the issuance of a new title of
TCT No. T-70380 with issue date 05 April 1999 (A copy of pages
190-191 of the Issuance Book is attached as Annex E-2.);
10.3 Cancelled TCT No. T-9794 which is the trace back title of
TCT No. T-34193 (Please see Annex E-3.); and
10.4
copy of

11.

Deed of Absolute Sale covering cancelled TCT No. T-9794 (A


the Deed of Absolute Sale is attached as Annex E-4.).

A Certification was also issued by Atty. Paner to reiterate that

the cancelled certificate of TCT No. T-34193 cannot be located from the
available records of the RD8.

12.

From the foregoing, it is evident that the original copy of TCT No.

T-70380 on file with the RD and the unreleased owners duplicate copy of the
same title cannot be located and are deemed lost.

13.

No deed or other instrument affecting the properties has been

presented for registration.

administrative or judicial, regarding its genuineness or due execution or

Office of Las Pias City. (A copy of the Official Receipts for 2007, 2008, 2009,
