Marikina now informal settler-free

account_balanceMarikina chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

Marikina became the first city in Metro Manila to become informal settler-free, according to Mayor Marcelino “Marcy” Teodoro.

Some 1,500 informal settler families (ISFs) in Marikina City have received land titles since Teodoro took office in 2016.

Nena V. Tiglao, Marikina City Land Management and Community Relations Division chief, said land distribution in the city was intensified following Teodoro’s order that all city residents should live on their own land.

“Mayor Teodoro ordered to intensify the land distribution in Marikina City. He wants all ISFs here to have dignity by owning their own lands,” Tiglao said in a statement.

Teodoro said the city is now “illegal settler-free” because of the city government’s “effective” programs.

Instead of a housing program, Teodoro said that in Marikina, the city government gives informal settlers the opportunity to purchase their own piece of land.

“Wala kaming housing program sa Marikina dahil financially it will constrain, burden the government funds kaya ang ginawa namin dito ay tenureship sa lupa. Titulo at hindi rights ang wino-workout namin. Mas sigurado,’’ Teodoro said.

“Iyong ibang private properties binibili ng city, iyon iba naman kino-community mortgage namin kaya mayroon kaming land management office dito,” he said.

Teodoro said the city government has 248 settlement areas spread across the city with around 20,000 residents.

To date, the local government, through the Titulo Para sa Bawat Tahanan Program, has given financial subsidy for survey and titling to around 2,500 families.

Tiglao said that beneficiaries of the city government’s Community Mortgage Program could purchase their land at about P200 to P680 per month at 6 percent interest for 25 years, depending on the land area.

They would have to loan from the Social Housing Finance Corporation where the local government will be their guarantor, she added.

On the other hand, beneficiaries who availed of the lands owned by the local government pay about P200 to P800 per month for 10 to 15 years at 3 percent interest, Tiglao said.
