Chapter VIII – Cadastral Survey

Article 27 – Numerical Cadastre

Section 193. The LMS shall verify the correctness and technical accuracy of the survey returns of the Numerical Cadastre. The following shall serve as guide in the inspection, verification and approval of a project covered by a numerical cadastral survey:

a. The Project Control shall be verified following in accordance with Sections 189 to 191 of this Manual. The approval of the Main Project Control and Subsidiary Control is a prerequisite in the conduct of Political Boundary and Lot Survey, respectively.

b. The Political Boundary Survey shall be verified as follows:

1. The survey returns submitted shall be checked against the list in the transmittal letter as provided for in Section 181 of this Manual;

2. The technical verification of Political Boundary Controls shall be conducted in accordance with Sections 189 to 191 of this Manual, with the accuracy of Primary Control (3rd Order) for the Municipal/City Boundary Survey and Secondary Control (4th Order) for the Barangay Boundary Survey.

3. The Political Boundary Maps shall be evaluated if prepared in accordance with Section 173.c.3.(d) of this Manual.

4. Monument Description Book for Political Boundary should be prepared in accordance with Section 166.d.2 of this Manual.

c. The Lot Survey shall be verified as follows:

1. The survey returns submitted shall be checked against the list in the transmittal letter as per relevant provisions in Sections 173 to 174 of this Manual.

2. Verify if all the Lots have corresponding PIS. Examine if the figure of the Lots plotted in the CM conform to that of the PIS.

3. Check completeness of the field notes and field notes cover. Verify if the reference point stated therein are found in the PCM and with the corresponding coordinates. Field notes cover should be properly filled-out;

4. Check the completeness of the computation sheets (area sheet and traverse). Check Lot Description against Lot Data Computation Sheet.

Verify if all the lots are included in the Lot Description Book;

5. Verify if the following are within the standard accuracy of Tertiary Survey as provided for in Section 30, DAO 2007-29:

a) Solar/stellar computation b) Traverse computation c) Lot data computation

8. Check the reference monument used and the tie line of the lots.

9. Determine the lots with the old approved surveys and check if they conform. If not, find out the justification and the corresponding technical documents to support the same.

10. CM evaluation :

a) Check the completeness of the CM. Examine if prepared in accordance with Section 173.c.3.(c) of this Manual. All the cadastral lots and other details should be plotted;

b) Compare the field notes, computation sheets, and CM. All lots and corners observed in the field notes and computed in the area sheets should correspond to the lots reflected in the CM;

d. The Verifiers shall stamp or write their names and affix signature on all pages of the field notes, computation sheets, and monument description book, etc.

during the process of verification. If defective, prepare Pending Letter to the contractor informing him/her of the defects, to be signed by the RTD for Lands concerned. If found in order, the Chief of Regional Surveys Division shall sign the Project Control, Political Boundary, and Cadastral (MBIM,BBIM, and CM) Maps and other necessary documents and prepare endorsement letter to the RTD for Lands for approval in accordance with Section 63, DAO 2007-29.

Article 28 – Graphical Cadastre and Public Land Subdivision Survey

Section 194. Previously Approved Graphical Cadastre - The LMS shall verify the correctness and technical accuracy of the survey returns of the survey covering the whole or a large part of the previously approved graphical cadastre. The following shall serve as guide in the inspection, verification and approval thereof:

a. Check the submitted documents against the Transmittal which should be in accordance with the requirements stated in Section 176 of this Manual.

b. Check if the provisions of Section 102 of this Manual were complied with.

c. The relative position of the lots should be determined by closed circuit traverse connecting at least three (3) well-defined and undisturbed corners of the previously approved survey in numerical system.

d. Upon verification-computation, the survey should have a tertiary precision in accordance with Section 29, DAO 2007-29.

e. Compare the coordinates of the corners of the lot in graphical system with their corresponding coordinates in the converted numerical system. A list of the lots affected by deviation in coordinates should be prepared and an investigation on the documents and on the ground shall be conducted.

f. The Cadastral Survey and number of the graphical cadastre shall be retained minus the letter m, e.g. Cadm-472 will become Cad-472, PCadm-534 will become Cad-534, etc.

g. The Verifiers shall stamp or write their names and affix their signatures on all pages of the field notes, computation sheets, and monument description book, etc. during the process of verification. If defective, prepare Pending Letter to the contractor informing him/her of the defects, to be signed by the RTD for Lands. If found in order, the Chief of Regional Surveys Division shall sign the Project Control, Political Boundary, and Cadastral (MBIM,BBIM, and CM) Maps and other necessary documents and prepare endorsement letter to the RTD for Lands for approval in accordance with Section 63, DAO 2007-29.

Section 195. Public Land Subdivision Survey - The LMS shall verify the correctness and technical accuracy of the survey returns of the survey covering a Public land Subdivision Survey. The following shall serve as guide in the inspection, verification and approval thereof:

d. The Verifiers shall stamp or write their names and affix their signatures on all pages of the field notes, computation sheets, and monument description book, etc. during the process of verification.
