The Land Title Transfer in Real Estate Transactions means when property buyers and sellers transfer ownership of land, houses & lots, condo units, and other properties from a sale upon signing and notarizing a Deed of Absolute Sale.
Buying a property does not end in just paying to have a land or property but it is a process of acquiring that full ownership by way of transfer of Land Title Certificate. It is a complicated process for anyone who does not understand the jargon of the real estate business, especially for busy property buyers. At MC dela Fuente, we offer convenience by doing the complex for you.

We have assisted several buyers in acquiring full ownership of the property they have purchased by processing the transfer of their land title and tax declaration to their name.
