  1. Yes kev that may be true of the UK but we should remember that the UK Embassy here is manned to a large extent by Filipinos apart from the Top and they give reports to the UK that are sent out. My contact there is from Cebu and has just returned from the Visayas after a fact find mission so they do get about. In any event we should all read and be guided by these warnings for our own safety. I for one, would hate to be "told you so" should I go and get captured

    Ok so let me understand, You have not paid for the lot and your GF has said get it sorted (Paperwork) or no deal, yet, you say you have surveyors and men Working on the Land, I do hope the deal goes ahead mate or I can hear TRESPASS being shouted. Baston my friend do you not think as this is only a new thing for you, you really should walk a little before you run, Sorry if that sounds harsh but........

    When we (well Azon) did our lot, we had to get a DAR (Department of Agricultural reform) Clearance to move it from Agricultural land to Domestic, It help in a big way because to get that Clearance it had to go via City Hall, Registrars and BIR so in our case the Title was as sound as it was ever going to be at that time because they can tell if all liens/taxes are paid ( No probs yet) Anyone that is looking to buy land that is not on a Subdivision or is a Subdivision of a larger Lot could do worse than go to DAR and enquire if a clearance is needed. Yes the Land Tax is Higher as it will be rezoned But.......... peace of mind will in most cases always cost that little extra. Just my experience

    Good point Snowy Here in Dumaguete this is getting to be a big problem causing much heart and headaches and costing plenty to put right (in many cases never) reselling that land can then become another nightmare as we all should know by now, Buyer beware

    **Churches and religious organizations are generally exempt from income tax and receive other favorable treatment under the tax law; however, certain income of a church or religious organization may be subject to tax, such as income from an unrelated business.** taken from a BIR update PDF so it would need to be searched as to long to put here Jack Morning All

    Exactly what we have done now and I get a gut feeling we have made the right decision. Cheap normally turns out False Economy

    We decided to go back the Polaris ( The supplier) although Dearer [ but not that much] they actually dismantal the whole thing and clean [checking the parts] So much better, we asked the engineer here and he said that so many of the A/C people Locally just want to clean ( earn and move on) but when we have invested so much on these things we are saying "Lets do it right" Total for today will be about 2.500 peso against 1.400 but all done and parts changed and Freon Filled. Yes 1.100 more But...... I will add that the Guy we have been using turns up and Gone in a hour per unit 3 hours max all three and leaves a mess but here we have 4 and I can see the difference in the work attitude
