About the surety bond
In an update posted at the PRC website, the PRBRES has announced that a surety bond in the amount of Php20,000.00 in favor of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) and the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (HLURB) with a validity of three (3) years, is required for the registration of the new real estate brokers as provided for by Section 26, Rule 4 of the RA 9646 IRR.
Since the information above was only posted today, April 7, 2011 (as indicated in the PRC website), it would come as no surprise that a number of new real estate board exam passers already went to the PRC to register, without the surety bond.
Unconfirmed reports from reliable sources told me My wife and I visited the PRC and confirmed that those who registered but did not have surety bonds yet can just bring it during the oath taking on April 26, 2011 on or before April 14, 2011.
Where to get a surety bond
A lot of people have been asking me where they can get their surety bonds and I said I can just refer them to where I got mine, which I submitted as part of the requirements for my registration w/o examination.
