TOPIC: Property Transfer of Ownership

Property Transfer of Ownership 1 year 1 month ago #17887

Greetings,

Hope everything is well. My wife and I are dual citizenship with the US and Philippines passports. Currently, we live here in California. My wife and I own a rental apartment and some piece of lands there in the Philippines. Can we transfer the title of these properties as heritance to our only seventeen-year old daughter who is a US citizen? I found this section 7 of an Article XII of the Philippines Constitution as noted “Section 7. Save in cases of hereditary succession, no private lands shall be transferred or conveyed except to individuals, corporations, or associations qualified to acquire or hold lands of the public domain.” Is this article above will suffice my US citizen daughter to own these properties? Also, what are the requirements and what we need to do to transfer the tittle to her?

I look forward to hearing from you. Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Yes, but only through inheritance. Meaning after the death of you and your wife. That is the only condition.
