DAR ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 02-09

SUBJECT    :     Rules and Procedures Governing the Acquisition and Distribution of Agricultural Lands Under Republic Act (R.A.) No. 6657, as Amended by R.A. No. 9700

 

I.       Prefatory Statement

Republic Act (R.A.) No. 9700, which amends R.A. No. 6657, provides for, among others, the continuing acquisition and distribution of agricultural lands covered under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) for a period of five (5) years under various phases, and the simultaneous provision of support services and the delivery of agrarian justice to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs). It further provides that after June 30, 2009, the modes of acquisition shall be limited to voluntary offer to sell (VOS) and compulsory acquisition (CA) and that voluntary land transfer (VLT) shall be allowed only for landholdings submitted for VLT as of June 30, 2009.    AaECSH

The agrarian reform program is founded on the right of farmers and regular farmworkers, who are landless, to own directly or collectively the lands they till or, in the case of other farmworkers, to receive a just share of the fruits thereof. To this end, the State shall encourage and undertake the just distribution of all agricultural lands, subject to the priorities and retention limits set forth under R.A. No. 6657, as amended, taking into account ecological, developmental, and equity considerations, and subject to the payment of just compensation. Owners of agricultural land have the obligation to cultivate directly or through labor administration the lands they own and thereby make the land productive.

The principles of agrarian reform or stewardship shall be in accordance with law in the disposition or utilization of other natural resources, including lands of the public domain, under lease or concession, suitable to agriculture, subject to prior rights, homestead rights of small settlers and the rights of indigenous communities to their ancestral lands.

To ensure the completion of land acquisition and distribution within the prescribed period, the following rules and procedures are hereby promulgated.

II.      Coverage

These rules and regulations shall govern the acquisition and distribution of all agricultural lands yet to be acquired and/or to be distributed under the CARP in accordance with R.A. No. 6657, as amended by R.A. No. 9700.    TCDcSE

III.    Definition of Terms

1.         Landless Beneficiary is any farmer/tiller who owns less than three (3) hectares of agricultural land.

2.         Share Tenant refers to a person who himself and with the aid available from within his immediate farm household, cultivates the land belonging to or possessed by another with the latter's consent, for purposes of production, sharing the produce with the landholder under the share tenancy system, or paying the landholder a price certain or ascertainable in produce or in money or both, under the leasehold tenancy system. This arrangement has been abolished by R.A. No. 3844, as amended, which automatically converted the relations under leasehold.

3.         Agricultural lessee refers to a person who, by himself and with the aid available from within his immediate farm household, cultivates the land, belonging to or lawfully possessed by another, with the latter's consent for purposes of agricultural production, for a price certain in money or in produce or both. It is distinguished from civil lessee as understood in the Civil Code of the Philippines.

4.         Farmworker refers to a natural person who renders service for value as an employee or laborer in an agricultural enterprise or farm regardless of whether his/her compensation is paid on a daily, weekly, monthly or "pakyaw" basis. The term includes an individual whose work has ceased as a consequence of, or in connection with, a pending agrarian or labor dispute and who has not obtained a substantially equivalent and regular farm employment.    HCEcAa

5.         Regular Farmworker refers to a natural person who is considered employed on a permanent basis by a landowner engaged in an agricultural enterprise or farm.

6.         Seasonal farmworker refers to a natural person who is employed on a recurrent, periodic or intermittent basis by an agricultural enterprise or farm, whether as a permanent or a non-permanent laborer, such as "dumaan", "sacada", and the like.

7.         Other farmworkers refer to farmworkers who do not fall under Items 5 and 6 of this Section.

8.         Cooperatives refer to organizations composed primarily of small agricultural producers, farmers, farmworkers, or other agrarian reform beneficiaries who voluntarily organize themselves for the purpose of pooling land, human, technological, financial or other economic resources, and operate on the principle of one member, one vote. A juridical person may be a member of a cooperative, with the same rights and duties as a natural person.

9.         Substantially Equivalent and Regular Employment means any employment or profession from which the applicant farmer derives income equivalent to the income of a regular farmworker at the time of ARB identification, screening and selection.    IcAaSD

10.       Agrarian Dispute refers to any controversy relating to tenurial arrangements, whether leasehold, tenancy, stewardship, or otherwise, over lands devoted to agriculture, including disputes concerning farmworkers' associations, or representation of persons in negotiating, fixing, maintaining, changing or seeking to arrange terms and conditions of such tenurial arrangements.

            It includes any controversy relating to compensation of lands acquired under R.A. No. 6657 and other terms and conditions of transfer of ownership from landowners to farmworkers, tenants and other ARBs, whether the disputants stand in proximate relation of farm operator and beneficiary, landowner and tenant, or lessor and lessee.

11.       Usufruct refers to a real right conferred on the beneficiary/usufructuary to enjoy the fruits of the property of another with the obligation of preserving its form, substance, and productivity.

12.       Direct Management in so far as preferred beneficiaries are concerned, refers to the cultivation of the land through personal supervision under the system of labor administration. It shall be interpreted along the lines of farm management as an actual major activity being performed by the landowner's child from which he/she derives his/her primary source of income.    aCTcDS

13.       Newspaper of General Circulation refers to newspaper or publication of general circulation, which may be national or local to where the property is located.

14.       Award is the conferment of Certificate of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) title to qualified agrarian reform beneficiaries.

IV.    Statement of Policies

No. 9700.    HTAEIS

            In the case of other landholdings still unacquired and undistributed but coverable under CARP, the DARMO shall submit the list of such lands to the DARPO which shall prepare and issue NOCs and transmit these to the DARMO for service to the landowners (LOs) based on specific schedules under Item IV (A) (2) of this Order.

            The MARO, together with a representative of the DARPO, shall conduct an inventory and ocular inspection of all agricultural lands within their area which are used for the above purposes. A report on the inventoried and inspected lands shall be submitted by the MARO and the DARPO representative to the Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer (PARO) indicating the following:

           Name of landowner;

           Location of property and area;

           OCT/TCT or Tax Declaration Number;

           Actual land use;    TIaCHA

           Existence of agricultural activity;

           Land Classification documents available; and

           Other information vital to the determination of coverage of the land or portions thereof under CARP.

9.         Any act of the landowner to change or convert his/her agricultural land to non-agricultural uses shall not affect the coverage of the landholding. Any diversification or change in the agricultural use of the landholding, or shift from crop production to non-agricultural uses and purposes shall be subject to the guidelines on land use conversion.

10.       Land subject to a conversion order but not developed within the five-year period starting from the issuance of the conversion order or the specific time frame stipulated therein, or if there is a violation of other conditions so provided, shall be reverted to agricultural use and Notice of Coverage thereon shall be issued by the PARO. An ocular inspection shall be conducted by the PARO on all lands covered by conversion orders and shall submit a factual finding on land development or violations of conditions on the conversion orders if any, to the Regional Director, copy furnished the Center for Land Use Policy, Planning and Implementation (CLUPPI), for appropriate action pursuant to the existing implementing rules and regulations (IRR) on land use conversion.    CcAITa

11.       As a general rule, the Notice of Coverage (NOC) shall be addressed to and received by the LO through the following modes of service:

11.1    Personal Service — This is made by handing a copy of the NOC to the LO in person and having him receive it by affixing his signature or thumbmark with a witness to the thumbmark who will set his signature in the receiving copy.

11.2    Substituted Service — If personal service of the NOC cannot be served directly to the LO within a reasonable time, service may be made by leaving copies of the NOC and having this duly received at the LO's:

a.         residence with some person of suitable age and discretion residing therein; or

b.         office or regular place of business with some competent person in charge thereof.

11.3    Service by Registered Mail — If personal or substituted service is not practicable, the Notice of Coverage shall be sent by registered mail to the last known address of the LO. The registered mail envelope shall be marked "Deliver to Addressee Only" and "Return to Sender" based on the possibilities that the LO has moved out, address is erroneous or insufficient, or the LO refuses to accept or receive the mailed NOC.    AEDcIH

11.4    Service by Publication — The mode of service by publication shall apply if the LO is outside the Philippines, or whereabouts is unknown, or LO refused to receive the NOC. If any of the three (3) modes of service {Items IV (A) (11.1 to 11.3) of this Order} fails, the NOC will be published in a newspaper of general circulation in such places. Service by publication shall be evidenced by the affidavit of the editor-in-chief, or circulation/advertising manager attesting to the fact of said publication and a copy of the said publication. A "Return to Sender" stamped on the mailing envelope for registered mail will serve as proof that the NOC was not received by the LO. The publication need not state the entire contents of the NOC but only the following essential particulars:

11.4.1 Coverage of the subject landholding under CARP on the specific land acquisition schedule based on the prioritized phasing under Section 5 of R.A. No. 9700;

11.4.2 Original Certificate of Title (OCT)/Transfer Certificate of Title (TCT)/Latest Tax Declaration No/s.;

11.4.3 Complete name/s of the LO/s and last known address, if available;    HTCIcE

11.4.4 Address or location of the subject landholding (barangay, city/municipality, province); and

11.4.5 A statement that the LO has thirty (30) calendar days from date of NOC publication to reply to the NOC, and that failure to do so shall be a waiver of the right to choose his retention area, the privilege to nominate child/children who may qualify as preferred beneficiaries and to apply for exemption/exclusion from CARP coverage.

12.       The other modes of service/delivery/receipt of the NOC shall be as follows:

12.1    Service upon co-owners — In case of co-ownership, the NOC shall be served upon each and every co-owner, unless one is specifically authorized to receive for the co-owners.

12.2    Service upon minors or incompetents — When the LO is a minor, insane or otherwise incompetent, service shall be made upon him/her personally and to his/her legal guardian if he/she has one, or if none, upon his/her guardian ad litem whose appointment shall be applied for by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR). In the case of a minor, service may also be made on his/her father and/or mother.    aSHAIC

12.3    Service upon entity without juridical personality — When the LOs who are persons associated through an entity without juridical personality are issued a NOC under the name by which they are generally or commonly known, service may be effected upon all the LOs by serving upon any one of them, or upon the person in charge of the office or place of business maintained in such name. Such service shall not individually bind any person whose connection with the entity has, upon due notice, been severed before the proceeding was brought.

12.4    Service upon domestic private juridical entity — When the LO is a corporation, partnership or association organized under the laws of the Philippines with a juridical personality, service may be made on the president, managing partner, general manager, corporate secretary, treasurer, in-house counsel or administrator.

13.       Within thirty (30) calendar days from receipt of NOC or from its date of publication, the LO has:

13.1    The right to choose a retention area not exceeding five (5) hectares pursuant to Section 6 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended; and

13.2    The privilege to nominate child/ren who may qualify as preferred beneficiary/ies.    SaETCI

            The landowner is likewise given the same thirty (30)-day prescribed period from receipt or date of publication of NOC, whichever is applicable, within which to protest coverage. Upon receipt of the protest of coverage by DAR, the LO is given another thirty (30) days to substantiate his/her protest and/or application for exemption or exclusion from CARP coverage. Failure to comply within the aforementioned 30-day reglementary periods shall be construed as a waiver or abandonment of the right to protest and/or to file for an application for exemption or exclusion from CARP coverage.

14.       Notwithstanding a protest of coverage or an application for exemption or exclusion by a landowner, the processing of the claim folder, including valuation and the issuance of Certification of Deposit (COD) by the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) and the transfer of title to the Republic of the Philippines, shall continue unless the Regional Director or the DAR Secretary, as the case may be, suspends the processing based on preliminary findings on grounds for exemption or exclusion or the Supreme Court issues a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) on the processing of the claim folder.

B.     Retention

1.         All landholdings five (5) hectares and below shall not be subject to CARP coverage except for landholdings submitted for voluntary offer to sell (VOS) before July 1, 2009 wherein the retention right has been waived. The PAROs shall issue Certification of Retention to landowners who have already availed of the same and cover all areas in excess thereof.    TCacIA

2.         For VOS lands submitted prior to July 1, 2009 where the master list of ARBs has been finalized, the retention areas of landowners covered under said VOS shall be processed under the existing guidelines of R.A. No. 6657, as amended, before July 1, 2009.

3.         Landowners who own lands five (5) hectares or less may file a request for the issuance of Certification of Retention.

4.         Landholdings covered by homestead grants and Free Patents issued pursuant to Commonwealth Act (C.A.) No. 141 still owned by the original grantees or their direct compulsory heirs shall be retained by them as long as they were cultivating the said landholdings at the time of the approval of R.A. No. 9700 and continue to cultivate the same.

5.         Heirs of deceased landowners who died after June 15, 1988 and whose lands are covered under CARP are only entitled to the five (5) hectare retention area of the deceased landowner.

6.         For landholdings under compulsory acquisition (CA), the landowner shall choose his retained area within thirty (30) days from receipt of Notice of Coverage (NOC) or date of publication of NOC.    TEaADS

            Failure to exercise the right to choose within the prescribed period shall constitute a waiver thereof. In which case the DAR, through the MARO, shall automatically choose for the landowner his/her retention area.

            For landholdings under voluntary offer to sell (VOS), the landowner shall exercise his right of retention simultaneously at the time of the offer for sale of the subject landholding.

7.         When landowners waive their right of choice, the following factors shall be considered in choosing their retention area:

6.1   commodity produced;

6.2   terrain;

6.3   infrastructure available; and

6.4  soil fertility.

8.         For marriages covered by the New Civil Code, in the absence of an agreement for the judicial separation of property, spouses whose agricultural land properties are all conjugal may retain a total of not more than five (5) hectares of such properties. However, if either or both of them are landowners in their respective rights (capital and/or paraphernal), they may each retain not more than five (5) hectares of their respective landholdings. In no case shall the total retention of such couple exceed ten (10) hectares.    DACTSH

9.         For marriages covered by the Family Code, which took effect on August 03, 1988, a husband owning capital property and/or a wife owning paraphernal property may retain not more than five (5) hectares each, provided they executed a judicial separation of properties prior to entering into such marriage. In the absence of such an agreement, all properties (capital, paraphernal and conjugal) shall be considered to be held in absolute community, i.e., the ownership relationship is one, and, therefore, only a total of five (5) hectares may be retained by each couple.

10.       The DAR shall notify the LO, through personal service with proof of receipt or by registered mail with return card, the portion selected as his/her retention area if the LO fails to exercise such right within the prescribed period.

11.       In case a tenant chooses to remain in the LO's retained area, he/she shall be a leaseholder in the said land and shall not qualify to be a beneficiary under CARP. Conversely, if the tenant chooses to be a beneficiary in another agricultural land, he/she cannot be a leaseholder in the land retained by the LO. The tenant must exercise this option within a period of one (1) year from the time the LO manifests his/her choice of the area for retention.

12.       Tenants/lessees in the retained areas who do not wish to become leaseholders in the retained lands shall be given preference in other landholdings whether or not these lands belong to the same landowner, without prejudice to the farmers who are already in place and subject to the priorities under Section 22 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended.    IcESDA

13.       In all cases, the security of tenure of the farmers or farmworkers on the LO's retained land prior to the approval of R.A. No. 6657, as amended, shall be respected. Further, actual tenant-farmers in the landholdings shall not be ejected or removed therefrom.

14.       Land transactions executed prior to R.A. No. 6657, as amended, shall be valid only when registered with the Registry of Deeds within a period of three (3) months after June 15, 1988 in accordance with Section 6 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended.

            Where the transfer/sale of a landholding involves a total of five (5) hectares and below and such landholding is the retention area of the transferor or subject of retention by the transferor, and the transferee will not own an aggregate of more than five (5) hectares as a result of the sale, the transfer is legal and proper. However, a DAR clearance is needed for the purpose of monitoring and as requisite for the registration of the title in the name of the transferee with the Registry of Deeds (ROD).

            In the case of multiple or a series of transfers/sales, only the first five (5) hectares sold/conveyed and the corresponding titles issued by the ROD in the name of the transferee shall be considered valid and be treated as the transferor's retained area, but in no case shall the transferee exceed the five (5)-hectare landholding ceiling pursuant to Sections 6, 70 and 73 (a) of R.A. No. 6657, as amended. In so far as the excess area beyond five (5) hectares sold and conveyed is concerned, the same shall be covered under CARP, regardless of whoever is the current title-holder to the land, considering that the transferor has no right of disposition of these lands since CARP coverage of these lands is mandated by law as of June 15, 1988. Any landholding still registered in the name of the landowner after earlier dispositions up to an aggregate of five (5) hectares are no longer part of his retention area and therefore shall be covered under CARP.    acCETD

15.       CARP covered agricultural lands which are to be expropriated or acquired by the local government units (LGUs) and to be used for actual, direct and exclusive public purposes, such as roads and bridges, public markets, school sites, resettlement sites, local government facilities, public parks and barangay plazas or squares, consistent with the approved local government land use plan, shall not be subject to the five-hectare retention limit. However, prior to the expropriation/acquisition by the LGU, the subject land shall first undergo the land acquisition and distribution process of the CARP, and the ARBs therein shall be paid just compensation without prejudice to their qualifying as ARBs in other landholdings under the CARP.

16.       The title of the land awarded under the agrarian reform program must indicate that it is an Emancipation Patent (EP) or Certificate of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) and any subsequent transfer of title must also indicate that it is an EP or a CLOA.

17.       Pursuant to Section 4 of R.A. No. 9700, an LGU may, through its Chief Executive and/or an ordinance, exercise the power of eminent domain on agricultural lands for public use, purpose, or welfare of the poor and the landless, upon payment of just compensation to agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) on these lands, pursuant to the provisions of the Constitution and pertinent laws. The power of eminent domain may not be exercised unless a valid and definite offer has been previously made to the ARBs, and such offer was not accepted. In cases where the land sought to be acquired has been issued with a Notice of Coverage or is already subject to voluntary offer to sell (with letter-offer submitted to DAR) the concerned LGU shall suspend the exercise of its power of eminent domain until after the LAD process has been completed and the title to the property has been transferred to the ARBs.    cDACST

            Where agricultural lands have been subjected to expropriation, the ARBs therein shall be paid just compensation. For this purpose, lands "subjected to expropriation" includes all agricultural lands which have been reviewed and approved by the DAR to be actually, directly and exclusively used by the LGU for public purpose with a case for expropriation already filed by the LGU before a judicial court. ARBs are those who have been certified by the Barangay Agrarian Reform Council (BARC) and DAR as beneficiaries of the subject landholdings.

18.       The expropriation/conversion of agricultural lands shall be subject to the existing guidelines of DAR on land conversion. Irrigable and irrigated lands where (1) there is agricultural activity, (2) land is suitable for agriculture, or (3) the land is presently occupied and tilled by farmers shall not be subject of expropriation by the LGUs.

C.     Land Acquisition

1.         Pursuant to Section 3 of R.A. No. 9700, the landholdings of LOs owning a total of five (5) hectares or less shall not be subject of acquisition and distribution under CARP.

2.         Landholdings above five (5) hectares which were offered under voluntary land transfer (VLT) and not approved by the DAR shall be covered under compulsory acquisition (CA).    IHEAcC

            All VLT applications submitted to DAR after June 30, 2009 shall no longer be processed.

3.         Landowners (LOs) may voluntarily offer their private agricultural lands for coverage under R.A. No. 6657, as amended or under R.A. No. 9700. Upon its acceptance by the DAR, the Letter-Offer for coverage under Voluntary Offer to Sell (VOS) can no longer be withdrawn. In any case, the DAR can immediately subject such landholding to coverage under compulsory acquisition and distribution under CARP notwithstanding the schedule of prioritized phasing under R.A. No. 9700.

            The acceptance letter for VOS shall stipulate that upon offer under VOS, the schedule of coverage under R.A. No. 9700 is deemed waived.

            Landowners who received NOCs for their landholdings under Compulsory Acquisition (CA) may be allowed to shift to Voluntary Offer to Sell (VOS), provided, that the claim folder (CF) for the subject landholding has not yet been received by the Claims Processing, Valuation and Payment Division (CPVPD) of the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) for valuation.

4.         Landowners who have voluntarily offered their landholdings for coverage under CARP and those who have previously waived their rights to retain are disqualified from becoming ARBs of other landholding/s being covered or to be covered under CARP. The LO's voluntary offer or his previous waiver is construed to be his inability and/or unwillingness to cultivate the land and make it productive.    EcIDaA

            Likewise, children of the same landowners who were not nominated as preferred beneficiaries are disqualified from becoming an ARB in another landholding following the qualification criteria pursuant to Section 22 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended.

5.         For tenanted lands or lands under leasehold, the Agrarian Reform Beneficiary/ies (ARB/s) shall continue to pay their lease rentals as tenants/lessees based on their leasehold contracts until such time that the LBP issues a Certification of Deposit (COD).

6.         As a general rule, untitled public alienable and disposable (A & D) lands are within the jurisdiction of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) pursuant to Commonwealth Act (C.A.) No. 141 (Public Land Act). However, subject lands are deemed "private" and for coverage by the DAR, if all the requisites specified in R.A. No. 6940, as amended by R.A. No. 9176 for the determination whether or not private rights over a landholding have already been acquired based on the following:

a.         Continuous occupancy and cultivation by oneself or through one's predecessors-in-interest for at least thirty (30) years prior to the effectivity of R.A. No. 9176 on December 4, 2002 (i.e., December 1972);    TDcEaH

b.         The land must have been classified as alienable and disposable for at least thirty (30) years prior to the effectivity of R.A. No. 9176;

c.         One must have paid the real estate tax thereon; and

d.         There are no adverse claims on the land.

            In cases where the DAR and DENR have jointly identified specific untitled properties that may be covered under the LAD component of CARP, the DENR-Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO)/Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) or Regional Technical Director (RTD) — Land Management Service (LMS) shall issue the certification that the subject tract of land is within an area classified as alienable and disposable.

7.         The current list of all lands covered by NOCs and all remaining unacquired and undistributed landholdings covered under CARP that are in the process of acquisition and distribution or will be acquired based on the schedule of priorities under Section 5 of R.A. No. 9700 shall be submitted by the DARPO to the ROD concerned for segregation of the corresponding original copy of the Certificates of Title of all these lands from the regular volume or files of the Registry, and the compilation of the same in a new separate volume (CARP Volume) until the customary number of titles constituting a regular volume is reached. This CARP Volume shall be treated as a restricted volume and any voluntary transaction on any of the titles included in this restricted file shall be subject to clearance in writing from the PARO. The maintenance of the CARP Volume shall be undertaken by the LRA-CARP personnel under the supervision of the ROD.    AHaDSI

8.         Any title contained in the CARP Volume shall only be returned to the general/regular file upon proof that the property covered by said title is exempted, excluded or ascertained to be outside CARP coverage. Such proof may be in the form of a Court Order or DAR Order which has become final and executory.

9.         The ROD shall issue a Transfer Certificate of Title (for titled properties) and an Original Certificate of Title (for untitled properties) in the name of the Republic of the Philippines (RP title) upon receipt of a copy of the LBP's Certification of Deposit (COD) from the DARPO.

10.       Landholdings distributed by the DENR under R.A. No. 6657, as amended shall no longer be acquired and distributed by the DAR.

11.       Landholdings subject of acquisition shall be validated based on ownership documents and on the projection by the DAR on DENR land classification maps to determine whether or not the areas are alienable and disposable.

12.       All projections undertaken by the DARPO on land titles, whether administratively or judicially (survey was based on the cadastral map of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources {DENR}) issued, shall be confirmed or validated by the DENR-Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) or Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) as to the land classification status of said lands.    ISCTcH

            All projections undertaken by the DARPO on lands covered by judicially issued titles and whose survey was based on the Private Survey (Psu) Plan of the Land Registration Authority (LRA) shall be confirmed or validated by the LRA on whether these lands do not overlap with other titled or decreed property.

13.       Titles judicially issued prior to 1921 based on Act No. 2874 need not be validated or confirmed by the DENR-CENRO/PENRO as to their land classification status as such lands are classified as alienable and disposable. However, the DARPO shall:

13.1    Undertake the projection as to land classification status; and

13.2    Obtain a certification from the Land Registration Authority (LRA) that the property does not overlap with a titled or decreed property. Such certification shall include, among others, the Judicial Decree number, date of issuance of Decree, name of adjudicatee, location and area.

            Such properties that partially overlap with other titled or decreed properties shall be segregated accordingly during the conduct of survey by the landholdings subject of acquisition. The acquisition and distribution of such landholdings that either partially or fully overlap with decreed properties shall continue regardless in whose name the decree is.    TCaEIc

14.       As a general rule, the conduct of survey to determine land use, segregation of coverable and not coverable area, and subdivision survey shall be undertaken prior to field investigation (FI). The PARO shall ensure that all field survey activities shall be completed before the conduct of field investigation (FI).

            However, in the event that the finalization of the master list of ARBs will necessitate resolution of petitions for inclusion and exclusion of ARBs in the master list, the PARO shall inform the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) regarding the matter, in which case, the conduct of subdivision survey will come after the field investigation (FI) or upon the finalization of the master list of ARBs so as not to delay the land acquisition process.

15.       The Land Use Management and Development (LUMD) fund shall be released and utilized only for CARP covered lands with Requisition Survey Services (RSS) approved by the DAR's Bureau of Land Development (BLD), pursuant to existing guidelines on requisition, approval and monitoring of survey services.

16.       A landowner-mortgagor of a foreclosed agricultural land where the two-year right of redemption period has already expired and is subsequently to be covered under CARP, cannot qualify as an ARB on the foreclosed land notwithstanding his/her being in actual possession and cultivation thereof. The DAR shall be responsible for taking possession of the land by negotiating or filing of the appropriate case, if necessary, and to successfully install the qualified ARB/s.    HSaEAD

D.     Land Valuation and Landowner Compensation

1.         The compensation for lands covered under R.A. No. 9700 shall be: a) the amount determined in accordance with the criteria provided for in Section 7 of the said law and existing guidelines on land valuation; or b) the value based on the order of the DAR Adjudication Board (DARAB) or the regular court, which has become final and executory.

            The basic formula for the valuation of lands covered by VOS or CA shall be:

            LV = (CNI x 0.60) + (CS x 0.30) + (MV x 0.10)

Where:  LV =         Land Value

                  CNI =         Capitalized Net Income (based on land use and productivity)

                    CS =         Comparable Sales (based on fair market value equivalent to 70% of BIR Zonal Value)

                    MV =         Market Value per Tax Declaration (based on Government assessment)

1.1       If three factors are present    ATcEDS

            When the CNI, CS and MV are present, the formula shall be:

            LV = (CNI x 0.60) + (CS x 0.30) + (MV x 0.10)

1.2       If two factors are present

1.2.1   When the CS factor is not present and CNI and MV are applicable, the formula shall be:

            LV = (CNI x 0.90) + (MV x 0.10)

1.2.2   When the CNI factor is not present, and CS and MV are applicable, the formula shall be:

            LV = (CS x 0.90) + (MV x 0.10)

1.3       If only one factor is present

            When both the CS and CNI are not present and only MV is applicable, the formula shall be:

            LV = MV x 2

            In no case shall the value of idle land using the formula (MV x 2) exceed the lowest value of land within the same estate under consideration or within the same barangay, municipality or province (in that order) approved by LBP within one (1) year from receipt of Claim Folder (CF.)    IaEHSD

            The specific guidelines governing the valuation of lands under voluntary offer to sell (VOS) or compulsory acquisition (CA) pursuant to R.A. No. 6657, as amended by R.A. No. 9700 are provided in CARP-LAD Annex A of this Order.

2.         All previously acquired lands wherein valuation is subject to challenge by landowners shall be completed and finally resolved pursuant to Section 17 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended.

            In like manner, claims over tenanted rice and corn lands under P.D. No. 27 and Executive Order (E.O.) No. 228 whether submitted or not to the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) and not yet approved for payment shall be valued under R.A. No. 6657, as amended.

            Landholdings covered by P.D. No. 27 and falling under Phase I of R.A. No. 9700 shall be valued under R.A. No. 9700.

3.         In cases of rejection, landowners may withdraw the original value of the landholding as determined by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) per Memorandum of Valuation (MOV) and subsequently deposited in their names, subject to their submission of the requirements for payment.    ATESCc

            When the LO later accepts the original value or as recomputed by the LBP based on existing valuation guidelines, mere filing of a manifestation by the LO as regards the acceptance of the original value or a joint manifestation by the LO and the LBP on the recomputed value with the DAR Adjudication Board (DARAB) shall automatically terminate the just compensation case pending thereat.

4.         Landowners, other than banks and financial institutions, who voluntarily offer their lands for sale, shall be entitled to an additional five percent (5%) cash payment.

5.         For landholdings which were conveyed after the effectivity of R.A. No. 6657, the LBP shall consider the transferor as the payee.

            However, payment must be released to the LO-transferee if the LO-transferor issues a Special Power of Attorney (SPA) or Deed of Assignment in favor of the former.

6.         In the determination of the Annual Gross Production (AGP), Selling Price (SP) and Cost of Operation (CO) to be used in the land valuation, the audited financial statement filed with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) shall be obtained by the DARMO from the LO fifteen (15) days prior to the date of field investigation. If the landowner fails to submit the same, the DAR and LBP may adopt applicable industry data or, in the absence thereof, conduct an industry study on the specific crop.    DAEICc

7.         Small portions or patches within the covered landholdings which are determined to be less productive than the bigger portion during the conduct of joint field investigation shall be valued based on the current use of the adjacent portions, provided that said small portions or patches shall not exceed 10% of the productive area.    aAcHCT

            Likewise, small portions or patches of landholdings above 18 percent slope, undeveloped and of no use to the landowner shall be valued as idle provided it shall not exceed 10% of the covered landholding.

E.      Farmer Beneficiary Identification, Screening and Selection

1.         Farmers/Tillers and farmworkers who meet the following qualifications shall be eligible as beneficiaries under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program:

2.         Qualified beneficiaries shall be prioritized as follows:

2.1       agricultural lessees, share tenants and regular farmworkers;

2.2       seasonal farmworkers;

2.3       other farmworkers;

2.4       actual tillers or occupants of public lands;

2.5       collectives or cooperatives of the above beneficiaries; and

2.6       others directly working on the land.

3.         The following are grounds for disqualification in the identification of ARBs of the CARP:

3.1       Failure to meet the qualifications as provided for under Section 22 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended;

3.2       Execution of a waiver of right to become an ARB in exchange for due compensation and such waiver has not been questioned in the proper government entity as of the approval of this Order;

4.         Only after the agricultural lessees and share tenants, and regular farmworkers have each been awarded three (3) hectares pursuant to Section 8 of R.A. No. 9700, shall other qualified beneficiaries such as seasonal farmworkers, other farmworkers, actual tillers/occupants of public lands, collectives or cooperatives of the above beneficiaries, and others directly working on the land, be accommodated.

5.         The child of an LO shall be given preference in the distribution of his/her parent's land pursuant to existing rules and regulations on award to children of LOs provided he/she meets all of the following criteria:

5.1       Filipino citizen;

5.2       At least fifteen (15) years of age; and

5.3       Actual tiller or directly managing the farm as of the time of the conduct of field investigation of the landholding under CARP.

            However, only untenanted portions of the landholding may be subject to award to qualified children of the LO and actual tenant-tillers in the landholding shall not be ejected or removed therefrom. An LO's child cannot claim that he/she is directly managing the farm or a specific area of tillage, if the same has tenants or lessees, considering that the tenants on the land have the right to directly manage the land or area of tillage with the obligation to pay the LO lease rental therefor.    TaHDAS

6.         In the event that the agricultural land for distribution in commercial farms or plantations is sufficient following the order of priority under Section 22 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended, the farmworker-beneficiaries therein on or prior to 15 June 1988, shall enjoy priority of award of a maximum of three (3) hectares.

            On the other hand, farmworkers who were hired after the effectivity of R.A. No. 6657 shall be accommodated based on their length of service, reckoned from 15 June 1988, and subject to Item IV (F) (1.2) of this Order.

7.         All potential ARBs of a landholding who have been included in the preliminary list, including those who have signified their intent or interest with the DARMO to be included in the preliminary list of potential ARBs thereof, must submit the essential documents to prove their qualifications as ARBs as provided under Item V (D.1.d) of this Order within fifteen (15) days from posting of the said list.

            Potential ARBs who fail to comply with the submission of the required documents to prove their qualifications fifteen (15) days from the last day of posting of the preliminary list of ARBs shall not be delisted from the preliminary list of ARBs. The DARMO shall use available documentary evidence at hand, if any, or exhaust all efforts to gather the necessary information/evidence as bases in the evaluation of the potential ARB's qualifications and inclusion in the said list.

8.         For the purpose of screening and selection of qualified ARBs in commercial farms, plantations and other landholdings that qualify for collective distribution under Item IV (F) (4) of this Order, all concerned PAROs shall create a Beneficiary Screening Committee (BSC) whose members shall be composed of the PARO as the Ex-Officio Chairperson, the MARO, the DARPO Legal Offer, the Provincial Agrarian Reform Coordinating Committee (PARCCOM) Chairman or his representative and the BARC Chairman of the area where the landholding is located or his representative, pursuant to DAR A.O. No. 7, Series of 2003.

            The BSC may invite the landowner/s and/or civil society organization (CSO) representatives in the area to serve as resource persons in the ARB selection and screening process, as may be necessary.

            The BSC shall exercise exclusive jurisdiction in the screening and selection of ARBs in commercial farms, plantations and other landholdings for collective distribution to ARBs.

9.         Qualified beneficiaries in a particular landholding shall include those determined/identified by the DAR during the actual investigation and documentation process. The master list of ARBs selected by the MAROs or the Beneficiaries Screening Committee (BSC) in the case of commercial farms or plantations, shall be certified under oath by the BARC and further attested to under oath by the LO in so far as his tenants, lessees and regular farmworkers in the landholding are concerned, pursuant to Item IV (E) (10) of this Order.    TacADE

10.       The right of the LO to attest to the master list of ARBs in so far as the tenants, lessees and regular farmworkers in his/her landholdings are concerned, is deemed waived after the lapse of fifteen (15) days from his/her receipt of the said master list of ARBs, if he fails to act on it within the said period. Thereafter, the master list of ARBs shall become final and executory. Landowners who fail, refuse or delay the issuance of the attestation despite proof of qualification of the beneficiaries, shall be liable under Sections 24 and 25 of R.A. No. 9700.

            In case of partial or full non-attestation or repudiation by the LO of the ARBs in the master list, the LO shall be required to submit evidence to sustain his partial or full non-attestation, repudiation of ARBs, and/or substitution or addition to the master list of ARBs.

            The landowner's refusal to attest to all or specific ARB/s in the master list despite the presentation of proof of their being either tenants or lessees or regular farmworkers shall not in any way delay the LAD process. The MARO shall submit a report on this to the PARO.

11.       The DARPO shall, within fifteen (15) days from receipt of the DARMO's report, conduct a revalidation of the qualifications of the ARBs' being tenants or lessees or regular farmworkers in cases where the landowner refuses to attest to:

11.1    Specific ARBs in the master list of ARBs (partial attestation);

11.2    Specific ARBs in the master list of ARBs (partial attestation) and identifies other ARBs either by substitution or addition whom the LO claims are his tenants, lessees or regular farmworkers; or

11.3    All ARBs in the master list of ARBs (full non-attestation) and identifies other ARBs either by substitution or addition whom the LO claims are his tenants, lessees or regular farmworkers.    aEDCAH

            Should the PARO find that there is possible merit to the LO's partial or full non-attestation of the master list of ARBs, he shall order the BARC to conduct compulsory arbitration within thirty (30) days to pass upon the issue.

            The BARC shall submit a report of its findings within five (5) days after arbitration to the PARO who shall then evaluate and finally determine the qualifications of the ARBs in the master list. The PARO's decision shall be final in so far as the master list is concerned.

12.       Protests for inclusion/exclusion from the master list of qualified ARBs may be filed in writing at the DARPO by an interested party not later than fifteen (15) days from the last day of posting of the master list, for resolution within thirty (30) days from receipt of the same.

13.       The master list of qualified ARBs becomes final after the lapse of fifteen (15) days from issuance of the PARO's decision on the protest and receipt of the same by the parties.

14.       The authority of the PARO to determine ARBs' qualifications is specifically limited in the context of partial attestation or full non-attestation by the LO and to resolve protests and petitions on the ARBs' qualifications to be included in the master list. After this phase, the other processes and the authority to decide on the determination of ARBs' qualifications under specific issuances (e.g., inclusion/exclusion of ARBs issued with CLOA from the master list of ARBs under agrarian law implementation cases) shall remain.

15.       In case an appeal/motion for reconsideration is filed on the PARO's decision/s or order/s for inclusion/exclusion of potential ARBs in/from the master list, the rules and procedures provided under the existing agrarian law implementation (ALI) rules shall be followed.

16.       The ARBs who qualify under the screening process shall state under oath before the judge of the city or municipal court that he/she is willing to work on the land to make it productive and to assume the obligation of paying the amortization for the compensation of the land and the land taxes thereon as stipulated in the Application to Purchase and Farmer's Undertaking (APFU).

            ARBs in the master list who fail or refuse to execute and sign the APFU shall be given thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of the APFU to sign it. Failure to sign the APFU within the reglementary period of thirty (30) days shall be considered as a waiver of right to become an ARB. Due notice shall be given to the concerned parties stating the consequence of such failure to sign and execute the APFU within the prescribed period.

F.      Land Distribution

1.         Equitable distribution of the land shall be observed subject to the following considerations:

1.1       Landholdings covered by CARP shall be distributed first to agricultural lessees and share tenants and regular farmworkers of the same landholding up to a maximum of three (3) hectares each. Only when the qualified agricultural lessees and tenants and regular farmworkers by order of priority under Section 22 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended, shall have received three (3) hectares each, shall the remaining portion of the subject landholding, if any, be distributed to seasonal and other farmworkers, actual tillers or occupants of public lands, collectives or cooperatives of the beneficiaries and others directly working on the land, pursuant to R.A. No. 9700.

1.2       Excess areas subsequent to the three-hectare award to entitled beneficiaries pursuant to R.A. No. 9700, shall be distributed to other qualified beneficiaries without prejudice to the consideration of immediate family members of agricultural lessees/tenants/farmworkers who are actually tilling/cultivating such lands as ARBs, subject to the procedures on screening and selection of ARBs. However, the tenants/lessees in such excess areas shall be given reasonable time to harvest the produce of his/her crop, subject to the rules on standing crops.

            In cases where the land area is not enough to meet the three-hectare award ceiling for each agricultural lessee and tenant in a particular landholding, the area to be distributed to them shall be based on the actual size of tillage by each tenant/lessee.

            Other qualified beneficiaries under Section 22 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended, who are displaced after the distribution of all available land to tenants/lessees, may still qualify as ARBs in other lands covered under the CARP.

            In cases where the three-hectare award limit is satisfied for tenants, lessees and regular farmworkers, the remaining lands shall be distributed to agrarian reform beneficiaries following the order of priority under Section 22, Items c to f of R.A. No. 6657, as amended, at an award limit of three (3) hectares each, using the following as the criteria for prioritization in case the land is not economically feasible and sound to distribute among all the remaining ARBs:    ISTHED

a.         willingness, aptitude and ability to cultivate and make the land as productive as possible;

b.         physical capacity; and

c.         length of service.

            If there are ARBs who equally meet the foregoing criteria, priority shall be given to ARBs who have continuously worked on the subject landholding.

            The other farmworkers on the land who cannot be accommodated shall be put in a wait list of potential ARBs who will be awarded in other landholdings covered by the CARP.

1.3       For untenanted land, all the farmers/tillers/farmworkers therein who qualify under the existing guidelines on the identification, screening and selection of Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs), shall be considered as potential beneficiaries in the estate, provided that the proportional share of each will not exceed three (3) hectares, otherwise, additional farmworkers shall be considered.

1.4       For unoccupied lands, each qualified landless farmer shall be allowed the award ceiling of three (3) hectares.

2.         In general, the land awarded to an ARB should be under an individual CLOA-title covering one (1) contiguous tract or several parcels of land cumulated up to a maximum of three (3) hectares.

3.         Qualified beneficiaries may opt for collective ownership, through a co-workers or farmers' cooperative/association or some other form of collective organization and for the issuance of collective ownership titles: Provided, That the total area to be awarded shall not exceed the total number of co-owners or members of the cooperative or collective organization multiplied by the award limit of three (3) hectares, except in meritorious cases as may be determined by the Presidential Agrarian Reform Council (PARC) and that the conditions for the grant of collective CLOAs under Item IV (F) (4.1 to 4.4) of this Order are met.

            Under collective ownership, a collective CLOA to the property shall be issued in the name of the co-owners or the farmers' cooperative/association or collective organization, as the case may be. If the CLOAs are issued to co-owners or to a farmers' cooperatives/association, the names of the beneficiaries must be listed in the CLOA.

4.         Collective CLOAs may be issued to farmers' cooperatives/associations under the following instances:

4.1       The current farm management system of the land covered by CARP is not appropriate for either individual farming or division of the landholding into farm parcels;

4.2       The farm labor system is specialized, where the farmworkers are organized by functions such as spraying, weeding, packing and other similar activities and not by specific parcels;

4.3       The potential beneficiaries are currently not farming individual parcels but collectively working on large contiguous areas; and

4.4       The farm consists of multiple crops being farmed in an integrated manner or includes non-crop production areas that are necessary for the viability of farm operations, such as packing plants, storage areas, dikes, and other similar facilities that cannot be subdivided or assigned to individual farmers.

5.         If the conditions for the issuance of collective CLOAs no longer exist, the landholding shall be parcelized/subdivided and the ARBs subsequently issued individual CLOA-titles.    EDSHcT

6.         For idle and abandoned lands or undeveloped agricultural lands to be covered by CARP, collective ownership shall be allowed only if the beneficiaries opt for it and there is a clear development plan that would require collective farming or integrated farm operations exhibiting the conditions described in Item IV (F) (4.1-4.4) of this Order. Otherwise, such lands awarded to ARBs should be under individual CLOAs/titles, covering one (1) contiguous tract or several parcels of land cumulated up to a maximum of three (3) hectares.

7.         As a general rule, the DAR shall take immediate possession of a landholding upon the issuance of Transfer Certificate of Title (TCT) or Original Certificate of Title (OCT) in the name of the Republic of the Philippines (RP) by the concerned Registry of Deeds (ROD), and shall thereafter immediately proceed with the distribution process to the qualified agrarian reform beneficiaries of the landholding pursuant to Section 16 of R.A. No. 6657, as amended.

8.         The ARBs have the right of usufruct over the land from the time the DAR takes constructive and actual possession of the same until the award of a CLOA.

            Pending the award of the CLOA and for the purpose of establishing usufructuary rights, the DAR, upon transfer of the title in the name of the Republic of the Philippines and it takes actual possession of the land, shall immediately inform the ARBs that they have been identified and qualified to receive the land.

9.         The existence of labor-related problems between the landowner and the farmworkers, including questions on ownership of the subject landholding and payment of just compensation shall in no case deter or delay the process of land acquisition and distribution.

10.       The rights and responsibilities of the ARB shall commence from their receipt of a duly registered Certificate of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) and their actual physical possession of the awarded land.

10.1    All ARBs shall exercise diligence in the use, cultivation and maintenance of the land including the improvements thereon. Negligence, misuse, or unauthorized sale of the land or misuse of any support extended to an ARB shall be a ground for the forfeiture of one's right as an ARB.

10.2    Lands awarded to ARBs under this Act may not be sold, transferred or conveyed except through hereditary succession or to the Government, or to the LBP, or to other qualified beneficiaries within a period of ten (10) years; Provided, however, that the children or the spouse of the transferor shall have a right to repurchase the land from the government or the LBP within a period of two (2) years from the date of transfer.

10.3    ARBs have the obligation to pay the LBP in thirty (30) annual amortizations with interest at six percent (6%) per annum unless the ARB opts to accelerate payment.

10.4    Amortization payments shall commence one (1) year from the date of the CLOA registration. However, if the actual occupancy of the ARB takes place after the CLOA registration, the amortization shall start one (1) year after the constructive and physical occupation of the land by the ARB.

11.       The ARB Cooperative/Association shall assume the responsibility of paying the local government unit (LGU) the real property tax (RPT) of collectively awarded land subject to the provisions of the Cooperative Code of the Philippines.

12.       Land improvements and facilities such as roads, bridges, warehouses, irrigation systems and the like, for common use and benefit as may be defined by DAR, may be transferred through a Farmers' Association or Cooperative, or in the absence thereof, through co-ownership, and equally shared payments covered under either individual or collective land amortizations, as the case may be.

13.       Agricultural lessees and tenants, regular farmworkers and other qualified beneficiaries such as seasonal farmworkers, other farmworkers, actual tillers/occupants of public lands, members of collectives or cooperatives of the above beneficiaries, and others directly working on the land who are husband and wife may be entitled to three (3) hectares each provided that they qualify as ARBs in their own individual rights and that their respective vested rights to the land have been duly established. A separate CLOA shall be issued to each spouse in such cases.    ATCaDE

14.       For legally married spouses, the names of both husband and wife shall appear in the CLOA and shall be preceded by the word "spouses". Should the couple qualify as individual ARBs, their names shall be registered in the title, to wit: Juan married to Maria or Maria married to Juan to indicate that the first name is the awardee. In the case of common-law relationship, the names of both parties shall likewise appear in the CLOA with the conjunctive word "and" between their names. Should they likewise qualify as individual ARBs, their names shall be registered without the other. The same provisions shall apply in cases where the married ARBs or ARBs in a common-law relationship are covered by a collective/co-ownership CLOA and their names annotated at the back of the said CLOA.

            For purposes of ARB inventory and reporting, spouses or parties whose names appear in a single CLOA shall be counted as one ARB.

15.       It is the ministerial duty of the ROD to:

15.1    Issue the title of the land in the name of the Republic of the Philippines, after the LBP has certified that the claim proceeds have been deposited in the name of the landowner constituting full payment in cash and bonds, with due notice to the landowner;

15.2    Register the CLOA generated by DAR;

15.3    Cancel previous titles pertaining thereto; and

15.4    Issue title to the LO's retained area.

16.       All registered CLOAs shall be released by the Registry of Deeds (ROD) to LBP as the mortgagee financing institution. The LBP shall be the responsible repository of the encumbered CLOAs until the time of their release to the concerned ARBs upon full payment of the land amortization, and the cancellation of the encumbrance.

G.     Installation of Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries on Awarded Lands

1.         As owners of awarded lands under CARP, the ARB/s shall take possession of the land covered by his/her/their titles from the time the same is awarded to them through a registered CLOA.

            In case taking possession of the awarded land by the ARBs would imperil or endanger their lives, the DAR shall assume responsibility for the installation of the ARB/s on the subject land with the assistance of the police or military until they are settled and in constructive and physical control of the property.

2.         As a general rule, there shall only be a one time installation of ARBs on their specific area of tillage as indicated in their CLOAs, rendering them in constructive and physical possession of the same.

            The DAR shall assist the ARBs in reporting cases of threat/harassment or ejection attempts by the former landowner or other parties to the police or military, and the filing of appropriate legal action against those responsible, if warranted.

3.         In case the installation activities would necessitate the provision of police and/or military forces to assist the DARMO personnel, the Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer (PARO) shall coordinate the said activities with the Department of National Defense-Armed Forces of the Philippines (DND-AFP) and the Department of Interior and Local Government-Philippine National Police (DILG-PNP), pursuant to the existing guidelines per Memorandum of Agreement executed by the DAR, Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), and Department of National Defense (DND).

4.         In the event that the former landowner harasses or threatens the ARB/s installed by the DAR, the affected ARB/s shall immediately report the matter to the concerned PNP and the DAR. The ARBs should be assisted by the DAR Regional/Provincial Legal Division, Public Attorney's Office (PAO) and the Office of the City/Provincial Prosecutors.    EIAScH

5.         If upon the effectivity of this Order, the former landowner deliberately acts to delay, stall or obstruct the installation of the ARBs, a criminal case shall be filed against him/her for violation of Sec. 73 (d) of R.A. No. 6657, as amended. Moreover, the DAR shall ask that the landowner be held liable by the Court for actual, compensatory and moral damages suffered by the ARB/s.

                                             of Environment and Natural
                                             Resources (DENR) Land
                                             Classification Maps to determine
                                             whether or not the areas are
                                             alienable and disposable, and do
                                             not overlap with any decreed
                                             property.
  CSaIAc

                                                  If the land is found to be
                                                   adjacent to forest or timber
                                                   land, determine the date of
                                                   issuance of the title. In case
                                                   the title was issued prior to
                                                   1921 based on Act No. 2874,
                                                   the subject land is definitively
                                                   considered as alienable and
                                                   disposable, and the procedure
                                                   in Item V(A)(2) of this Order
                                                   shall be undertaken.
  ECcTaH

                                                  If the title was issued on or
                                                   after 1921 based on Act No.
                                                   2874, determine whether
                                                   these were issued
                                                   administratively or judicially.

                                                  For landholdings covered by
                                                   judicial titles and the
                                                   survey was based on the
                                                   Land Registration Authority
                                                   (LRA)-Private Survey (PSu)

                                                   or not the said landholdings
                                                   are alienable and disposable,
                                                   and for subsequent issuance
                                                   of a certification on the matter.
                                                   Likewise, submit the same
                                                   list to the Bureau of Land

                                                         overlaps with a decreed
                                                         property, or it is partially
                                                         alienable and disposable,
                                                         ensure that the portions
                                                         of the said lands that are
                                                         within the decreed property

CARP-LAD ANNEX A

Specific Guidelines Governing the Valuation of Lands Voluntarily Offered or Compulsory Acquired Pursuant to Republic Act No. 6657, as Amended by R.A. No. 9700

Pursuant to Section 7 of Republic Act (R.A.) No. 9700, the following are the guidelines governing the valuation of lands subject of acquisition under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

A.     The basic formula for the valuation of lands covered by VOS or CA shall be:

LV = (CNI x 0.60) + (CS x 0.30) + (MV x 0.10)

Where:

LV =    Land Value

CNI =  Capitalized Net Income (based on land use and productivity)

CS =    Comparable Sales (based on fair market value equivalent to 70% of BIR Zonal Value)

MV =   Market Value per Tax Declaration (based on Government assessment)

A.1   Three Factors are Present

            When the CNI, CS and MV are present, the formula shall be:

            LV = (CNI x 0.60) + (CS x 0.30) + (MV x 0.10)

A.2   Two Factors are Present

A.2.1   When the CS factor is not present and CNI and MV are applicable, the formula shall be:

            LV = (CNI x 0.90) + (MV x 0.10)

A.2.2   When the CNI factor is not present, and CS and MV are applicable, the formula shall be:

            LV = (CS x 0.90) + (MV x 0.10)

A.3   Only One Factor is Present

When both the CS and CNI are not present and only MV is applicable, the formula shall be:

LV = MV x 2

In no case shall the value of idle land using the formula (MV x 2) exceed the lowest value of land within the same estate under consideration or within the same barangay, municipality or province (in that order) approved by LBP within one (1) year from receipt of Claim Folder (CF.)

A.4   Permanent Crops Not Yet Productive or Not Yet Fruit Bearing

When the land planted to permanent crops is not yet productive or not yet fruit-bearing at the time of Field Investigation (FI), the land value shall be equivalent to the value of the land plus the Cumulative Development Cost (CDC) of the crop from land preparation up to the time of FI. In equation form:    cHSIDa

LV = (MV x 2) + CDC

Where:

1.         MV to be used shall be the applicable UMV classification of idle land.

2.         CDC shall be grossed-up from the date of FI up to the date of LBP CF receipt for processing but in no case shall the grossed-up CDC exceed the current CDC industry based data.

In case the CDC data provided by the landowner could not be verified, DAR and LBP shall secure the said data from concerned agency/ies or, in the absence thereof, shall establish the same through industry studies.

In no case, however, shall the resulting land value exceed the value of productive land similar in terms of crop and plant density within the estate under consideration or within the same barangay, municipality or province (in that order) approved by LBP within one (1) year from receipt of CF.

In case where CS is relevant or applicable, the land value shall be computed in accordance with Item A.2.2 where MV shall be based on the lowest productivity classification of the particular land use.

A.5   Permanent Crops Not Yet Productive or Not Yet Fruit Bearing Introduced by FBs Under Tenancy Arrangement

When the land is planted to permanent crops introduced by the farmer-beneficiaries (FBs) under tenancy arrangement, as determined by DAR, which are not yet productive or not yet fruit-bearing, the land value shall be computed by using the applicable UMV classification of idle land. In equation form:

LV = (MV x 2)

In no case, however, shall the resulting land value exceed the value of productive land similar in terms of crop and plant density within the estate under consideration or within the same barangay, municipality or province (in that order) approved by LBP within one (1) year from receipt of CF.

A.6   Permanent Crops No Longer Productive or Ready for Cutting

The value of lands planted to permanent crops which are no longer productive or ready for cutting shall be determined by using the applicable UMV classification of idle land plus the salvage value of the standing trees at the time of the FI. In equation form:

LV = (MV x 2) + Salvage Value

In no case, however, shall the resulting land value exceed the value of productive land similar in terms of crop and plant density within the estate under consideration or within the same barangay, municipality or province (in that order) approved by LBP within one (1) year from receipt of CF.

In case where CS is relevant or applicable, the land value shall be computed in accordance with Item A.2.2 where MV shall be based on the lowest productivity classification of the particular land use.

A.7   Lands Planted to Seasonal Crops Without Record of Production

A.7.1   For lands with no historical record of production but planted to seasonal crops at the time of FI or whose annual production cannot be established since the land has not completed at least one normal crop cycle for crops whose cycle is more than one year, and at least two normal crop cycles for crops whose cycle is less than one year immediately preceding the date of FI, the land shall be valued based on the lowest productivity classification of the particular land use per FI. In equation form:

            LV = MV x 2

            In no case, however, shall the resulting land value exceed the value of productive land planted to the same crop with history of production within the estate under consideration or within the same barangay, municipality or province (in that order) approved by LBP within one (1) year from receipt of CF.

            In case where the CS is relevant or applicable, the land value shall be computed in accordance with Item A.2.2 where MV shall be based on the applicable classification of idle land.    HESCcA

A.7.2   For lands planted to seasonal crops which are not yet productive at the time of FI but were previously planted to another seasonal crop for at least two (2) years immediately preceding the date of FI, the land value shall be determined as follows:

            LV = (CNI x 0.90) + (MV x 0.10)

Where:

1.         The CNI of the property shall be based on the annual gross production of the previous crop.

2.         The MV of the land shall be based on the applicable UMV classification of the previous crop.

            In cases where CS is relevant or applicable, the land value shall be computed in accordance with Item A.2.2 where MV shall be based on the lowest productivity classification of the previous land use.

            If the previous crop failed to satisfy the two (2) year minimum period of planting, the land shall be valued in accordance with Item A.7.1.

            In cases where CS is relevant or applicable, the land value shall be computed in accordance with Item A.2.2 where MV shall be based on the lowest productivity classification of the present land use.

A.7.3   For lands planted to seasonal crops intercropped with other seasonal crop/s, none of which have record of production, the land shall be valued in accordance with Item A.7.1 where the MV of the land shall be based on the lowest productivity classification of the crop with the higher or highest UMV.

A.8   The valuation of lands utilized as homelot/s which is/are situated in an idle land or productive land, shall be the same as said idle or productive land.

If the homelot/s is/are situated in or adjacent to lands with different land uses, the value of the homelot shall follow the lowest land value of the land where it is situated in or adjacent to.

A.9   In all of the above, the computed value using the applicable formula shall in no case exceed the landowner's (LO) offer in case of VOS. The LO's offer shall be grossed up from the date of the offer up to the date of receipt of CF by LBP from DAR for processing.

A.10 The date of receipt of CF by LBP from DAR shall mean the date when the CF is determined by the LBP-Agrarian Operations Centers' Claims Valuation, Processing and Payment Division to be complete with all the required documents and valuation inputs duly verified and validated, and ready for final computation/processing.

A.11 The basic formula in the grossing up of valuation inputs such as LO's Offer, BIR Zonal Value and Market Value per Tax Declaration (MV) shall be:

Grossed-Up Valuation      = Valuation             x Regional Consumer
             Input                            Input                       Price Index (RCPI)
                                                                                Adjustment Factor

The RCPI Adjustment Factor shall refer to the ratio of the most recent available RCPI for the month issued by the National Statistics Office (NSO) as of the date when the CF was received by LBP from DAR for processing and the RCPI for the month as of the date/effectivity/registration of the valuation input. Expressed in equation form:

                                             Most Recent RCPI for the Month as of
                                             the Date of Receipt of CF by LBP from
                                             DAR
RCPI Adjustment          =      ————————————————
           Factor                        RCPI for the Month Issued as of
                                             Date/Effectivity/Registration of the
                                             Valuation Input

B.      Capitalized Net Income (CNI) — This shall refer to the difference between the gross sales (AGP x SP) and total cost of operations (CO) capitalized at 12%.

Expressed in equation form:

            (AGP x SP) – CO
CNI   = ————————
                       0.12

Where:

CNI =  Capitalized Net Income

AGP = Annual Gross Production corresponding to the latest available 12-months' gross production immediately preceding the date of FI.

SP =    The average of the latest available 12-months' selling prices prior to the date of receipt of the CF by LBP for processing.    DcITHE

CO =   Cost of Operations corresponding to the latest available 12-months' immediately preceding the date of FI.

            The CO shall include the direct and indirect cost related to production.

0.12 =  Capitalization Rate

Whenever the cost of operations could not be obtained or verified, the CNI shall be computed based on the Net Income Rate (NIR). Expressed in equation form:

            (AGP x SP x NIR)
CNI   = ————————
                    0.12

Where:

a.         For productive coconut lands, the applicable NIR is 70%;

b.         For sugar lands and rubber, refer to pertinent existing guidelines;

c.         For other crops, the assumed NIR is 20%.

DAR and LBP shall continue to conduct joint industry studies to establish the applicable NIR for each crop covered under CARP.

B.1       The landowner shall be required to submit BIR-filed audited financial statement of the land subject of acquisition for the purpose of determining the annual gross production, selling price (farm gate) and cost of operation and such other data as may be required. These data shall be validated/verified by the DAR and LBP field personnel against LO's accounting records, industry data and field interview.

            In case of failure by the landowner to submit the statement fifteen (15) days prior to the date of field investigation of the landholding per request of the Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer (MARO) or the data stated therein cannot be verified/validated, DAR and LBP may adopt any applicable industry data or, in the absence thereof, conduct an industry study on the specific crop which will be used in determining the production, cost and net income of the subject landholding.

D.     In the computation of Market Value per Tax Declaration (MV), the most recent Tax Declaration (TD) and Schedule of Unit Market Value (SUMV) issued prior to receipt of CF by LBP shall be considered. The Unit Market Value (UMV) shall be grossed up from the date of its effectivity up to date of receipt of CF by LBP from DAR for processing, in accordance with Item A.11.

D.1   In case the area as appearing in the TD differs from the area per approved survey plan, the latter shall prevail.

D.2   In case the land classification/land use per FI differs from that reflected in the TD, the former shall prevail and the UMV of the land classification per FI shall be obtained from the provincial assessor's office concerned.

D.3   In case the UMV for a certain land classification in the municipality where the property is located is not available, the UMV of the same land classification in an adjacent municipality may be used.

D.4   In cases where the trees are not yet productive/fruit-bearing or not longer productive/ready for cutting, MV shall only include the value of the land.    ITDHcA

D.5   In cases where the trees are already productive or fruit-bearing, the land productivity classification of the property whenever possible shall be established in accordance with the assessment regulations issued by the appropriate agency.

D.6   The value of the trees introduced by the farmer-beneficiaries under tenancy arrangement, as determined by DAR, lessees or third parties shall not be considered in the MVTD computation.

D.7   For purposes of establishing the land use per MV, at least fifty percent (50%) of the standard density per hectare based on industry, shall be required. If no permanent crop meets the minimum fifty percent (50%) standard density requirement, the UMV for the land shall be based on the applicable classification of idle land.
