Star foreclosed property auctions (GMA and North Luzon) slated on May 17, 2011

Star Properties will be having two simultaneous public auctions of foreclosed properties on May 17, 2011. Metro Manila foreclosed properties will be up for grabs at Max’s Jupiter in Makati City, while North Luzon foreclosed properties will be available at the Kulinarya Ng Tisa At The Cabanas in Bulacan. Registration for both auctions start at 9:00am and the auction proper starts at 10:00am.

Now with improved auction terms

According to the auction announcement below, these auctions are “NOW WITH IMPROVED AUCTION TERMS”.

In addition, it also states that “SELLER TO SETTLE OUTSTANDING PROPERTY EXPENSES OWING ON THE PROPERTY UP TO AUCTION DATE”. This can be referring to any arrears for property taxes, utilities, homeowner association dues, etc. Sounds good right?!

But does this mean you can already ignore question no. 13 and also questions 15 to 21 in the 31 questions you need to ask when inquiring about foreclosed properties? Of course not! You still need to double check these as part of your due diligence.

Although only 10% down-payment is needed, they only offer two (2) years of in-house financing. If you believe this is too short for you and may cause a cash-flow problem, you need to check if bank financing can be arranged.

As usual, all the foreclosed properties for sale in these public auctions are to be sold on an “AS-IS, WHERE-IS” basis.

  1. Sir Jay,

    Can I ask a question? I bought a condo unit during pre-selling. The unit is fully paid and is ready for turn-over, but the title is not yet transfered. Now I have a buyer who wants to buy the unit. The question: Can I sell the unit with only the deed of assignment and ask the developer to transfer the title to the name of the new owner? Do I have pay capital gain tax or any other taxes?


    • Hi RC,

      Based on our experience where we ALMOST bought a condo(not foreclosed) from a motivated seller, no, you don’t have to pay CGT and other real estate related taxes(DST, transfer tax), if you will use a deed of assignment. In our case, the developer allowed their buyers (lets call him Mr. A) to use a deed of assignment so a buyer like Mr. A can sell their unit to a third party(that was us in this case). Mr. A would only need to pay the assignment fee to the developer. If the deal had pushed through, I would have been the one to pay CGT and DST, etc. and the developer will transfer the title to me directly when I am fully paid, Mr. A would be out of the picture.

      The only caveat here is you need to check with the developer if they allow a deed of assignment and how much assignment fee would they charge, if any.

      One last thing, it would be best to visit the local BIR office and consult with the officer of the day at the ONETT(One Time transaction) queue to confirm you don’t need to pay CGT and other taxes as the one who doing the assignment, which means your buyer will be the one to do so.

        • You’re welcome RC. I almost forgot, you will have to pay income tax for the difference between how much you bought the unit and how much you are going to assign it for. For example, if you bought the condo unit for Php 1 million, and you are going to assign it for Php1.2 million, you will have to pay income tax for the Php200k markup. You will have to declare this when you file your income tax return.
