However, they are not supposed to sign into this paper for obvious reason. In short,there is no any legal impediment for the transfer of the title to any third party. These government agenciesrecognize the fact that the property is private from the very start.The private owners before the BCDA proclamation seeded the property to the current title holders througha deed of assignment and the ownership is doubly valid because the Department of Agrarian Reformcovered the property and thereafter granted to farmers-beneficiaries.
