PDIC to sell bank acquired properties of closed banks through sealed bidding

Last Updated on November 10, 2015 by Jay Castillo | Filed under: - 19 Comments

I recently came across an invitation to bid from the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC). This invitation to bid is quite interesting because the properties that are for sale through sealed bidding are actually the Real and Other Properties Acquired (ROPA) of closed banks. I guess this helps confirm my answer to a recent comment by Jun where he had a concern with regard to a property he got through a tax foreclosure auction whose title had an inscription of mortgage with a bank that was already closed. It appears that properties of closed banks really do end up with PDIC.

Up for sale through sealed bidding are properties from the Visayas and Metro Manila areas. Submission of sealed bids for Visayas properties will be on December 8, 2009, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. For Metro Manila and other areas, the submission of sealed bids will be December 15, 2009, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.

*Update – I forgot to mention that the list also contained a number of bank repossessed cars.

Please refer to the invitation to bid below for more details.
