There are some nice houses repossessed and if you keep your wits about you you'll get a bargain. 

Get yourself a couple of repo cars to go with the house. :tiphat:

Yeah Dave what I wrote is based on cash sale, as long as you are reasonable with your offer they'll buckle. :thumbsup:

Care is also needed here. I can remember reading some time ago that buying a foreclosed mortgage home from a bank comes with conditions attached.

Sorry not recall 100%, was to do with the original owner being able to reclaim the property within a certain period if he had funds. 12 months comes to mind.

If thats the case it would be a very risky and unfair, you would think once a property is sold it becomes the property of the new owner as the bank got back as much as they could and normally you are given the deed to something you have bought outright.

Philippines moves in mysterious ways.

Nope.  RBM is right

The mortgagor may redeem the foreclosed property within one (1) year from the date of the sale (see Act No. 3135, as amended).

Not doubting that he was right, just saying its too risky to bother.

The law lnk you posted was kind hard to follow without any beer.

Sort of right.  Three months if the mortgage is a bank or other financial institution.  Snip is from same source as Dave's post.  As slow as things move here in the Philippines I expect those repo property/homes on the bank books would all past the three months.  The 12 months would still apply for a private mortgage i.e. seller to buyer under an installment contract.

<snip>

The General Banking law reduced the redemption period to three months from registration of the certificate of foreclosure sale or three months after foreclosure, whichever is earlier, if the following elements are cumulatively present: a) the mortgagor is a juridical person; b ) the mortgagee is a banking or credit institution; and, c ) the mode of foreclosure is extra-judicial under Act 3135, as amended. (Section 47 of RA 8791, otherwise known as the new General Banking Law). Only after the lapse of the redemption period shall the buyer at the auction sale may consolidate its ownership over the foreclosed property.

<end snip>

Thanks everyone for replying, the wife and I was talking and looking at places over there  but the problem is maybe what we are looking at has either been sold or has been on the market for years , the estate agents don’t seem to work like they do here, boots on the ground maybe next year to have a better sense of prices.

Estate Agents here seem very lazy and it is very difficult to get them to bother to discuss anything. They want you to view and buy - that is all they seem interested in. Owning a piece of family land here is better than winning a lottery but many don't want to cash in that winning ticket and prefer to sit on it - one day it will expire (fall in value) but in the long-term (to quote Yazz) 'The only Way is Up'. And to quote Bob Dylan: 'Pity the poor Immigrant'.
