Registration of land titles and deeds It is not the land which is registered under any system of registration in the philippines and elsewhere, but it is the title to or any deed affecting land which is actually registered. Title - lawful cause or ground of possessing that which is ours. It is that which is the foundation of ownership of property, real or personal - Signifies or is taken to mean as (1) ownership or, when used with appropriate limiting words, a claim of ownership; or (2) the totality of evidence, i.e., the operative facts which result in such ownership or on which the claim of ownership is based. - One’s title to land is the evidence of his right or of the extent of his interest; the means whereby the owner is enabled to assert or maintain his possession; the right of the owner, considered with reference either to the manner in which it has been acquired or its capacity of being effectively transferred - Constitutes a just cause of exclusive possession, or which is the foundation of ownership of property Equitable ownership - present title in land which will ripen into “legal ownership’’ upon the performance of conditions subsequent Title to land - mean legal title and is allowed to be used in relation to the title to certain land Titulo – spanish; cause in virtue of which anything is possessed and the instrument by which the right is accredited Title implies possession, either actual or constructive, but possession does not necessarily imply title. Possession means actual control of property by physical occupation, while title is the means whereby one holds possession of his land. Title signifies the right of possession or of property in land as distinguished from actual possession; and the legal title to real property carries with it the right to possession which is sufficient to authorize an action to recover the same from one in possession without right or title. Title to real property is a conglomerate of jurisdiction and substantive legal rights fused with the residuals of equitable remedies all developed historically out of feudal notions and medieval conditions Fee simple title - title to the whole of the thing absolutely - Full and absolute state beyond which and outside of which there is no other interest or right - Involves the exercise of the maximum rights of dominion over the property without limitations except those which may be established by law

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
