19 Free Legal Forms And Contracts From Philippine Legal Forms

ADVERTISEMENT

Update: This list already contains 20 contracts. The latest to be added is a rent-to-own contract

I just want to share this link to a very cool site which offers free legal forms & contracts which are mostly real estate related. Credit goes to Jomar Hilario who discovered the site and shared it through the Think Rich Pinoy! Google Group last October 2008, just before I created this blog. I just remembered about it which is why I am sharing this to all of you only now.

I would like to believe that most of you out there are future real estate investors that are about to venture into real estate investing very soon, so most of you will eventually need these forms & contracts. The available free samples of legal forms & contracts are listed below:

  1. Deed of Absolute Sale

  2. Contract to Sell
  3. Chattel Mortgage
  4. Contract of Lease / Rent
  5. Rent-to-own contract
  6. Deed of Sale
  7. General Form of Affidavit
  8. Affidavit of Loss
  9. Earnest Money Receipt Agreement
  10. Affidavit of Desistance
  11. Acknowledgement Receipt for Payments
  12. Acknowledgement of Debt
  13. General Power of Attorney
  14. Special Power of Attorney
  15. Deed of Assignment & Transfer of Rights
  16. Deed of Donation
  17. Contract of Renovation/Construction of a House or Building
  18. Authority to Sell / Lease
  19. Offer to Purchase
  20. Last Will and Testament

Since the Philippine Legal Forms website states that all the Philippine legal forms and contracts they have are free to copy and revise for single use but not for re-publication in print or reproduction on other websites, I cannot reprint them here. You will have to get them yourselves at http://legal-forms.philsite.net

I would also like to reiterate what was stated on the website which says “It is strongly recommended that you consult a lawyer and have a customized document drawn to suit your requirements. All legal forms in this site are meant for reference only. Always seek legal advice before entering into any contract, agreement or executing any legal document”. Very sound advice if you ask me.

By the way, you will notice that there wasn’t any sample rent-to-own contract on the list. Don’t worry, I shall be sharing a sample in one of my next posts and I may also incorporate the suggestions I made on my recent post on Rent-To-Own Contract Tips: For The Protection Of The Buyer.

    I was contracted to do a construction on an extension of a 2 story wharehouse. I wasn’t able to notarized the contract that we signed. I finish the contract in time. Now I am having a hard time to contact the owner. She is not answering my call, her people in the office says she seldom pass by the office, its been 3 months now and I’m still not being paid by the owner. My question is can I use in court the contract which we signed even if its not notarized?

    Hi Jay,

    I tried to ask this question but got no satisfactory answer from PAG-IBIG. So I would like to request for your advice:

    My son who is working in Dubai wanted to buy a condo unit owned by a private person. The owner wanted cash payment for the condo unit. I am trying to negotiate with the owner if my son can pay 20% of the contract price and 80% to be financed thru PAG-IBIG housing loan.

    The owner is willing to sign a contract to sell but insisted that the 80% balance shall be paid in cash within six (6) months. If my son will apply for a PAG-IBIG housing loan, how long is the processing approval of the loan? Moreover, one of the documents required for the release of the loan is “TCT/CCT in the name of the borrower with proper mortgage annotation in favor of Pag-IBIG Fund” which means that the title has to be transferred to my son. But the owner is hesitant and asked what is the assurance that the 80% will be paid once the title has already been transferred? Is there any legal document for this? Or will the PAG-IBIG issue a guarantee that payment will be made to ownder as soon as all the requirements have been submitted?

    I would really appreciate your opinion on this? Thanks a lot and more power!!!

    Tony Avila Jr.

    @Paul, thanks for visiting! I see we share the same passion. Keep it up! I also visited your blogs, great information as well!

    @Anonymous, having a lease contract notarized would usually cost anywhere from Php100 to php300 pesos, depending on where or with whom you will have it notarized. Thanks for visiting.

    Jhay, for the lease contract, magkano ang pa-notarize nun? Duration of the lease is one year.

    Jay, thank you for sharing what you know through this blog. The information is priceless! I am a student of real estate investing and since I am based in the province (Zamboanga City), this site helps me be abreast in the current real estate offerings that you publish.
