Agrarian Reform Legal Fees to Be Strictly Collected


Byline: JOEL C. ATENCIO

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Region 8 has found a way to help raise revenues for the cash-strapped Arroyo Administration in the wake of the nations financial crisis.

Agrarian Reform Secretary Rene C. Villa said that instead of donating part of the employees salary, DAR Adjudication Board (DARAB) Adjudicator Felixberto Diloy mandated the different provincial adjudicators in Region 8 to strictly implement the collection of prescribed fees, charges, and costs as stated in Rule 28 of the DARAB 2003 Rules of Procedure.

During a conference with the provincial adjudicators, clerks of board and accountants in the region, it was found that not all provinces collect the prescribed fees.

Diloy disclosed that under the said DARAB rules, the Board of Adjudicator may refuse to take action until payment of prescribed fees has been made. Pauper-litigants are exempted from paying the fees, he emphasized.

A clarification was made that a landowner does not qualify as pauper - litigant. No matter how low his income is, he should pay the prescribed fees due to the fact that he owns a property.

Under the DARAB rules, the following legal fees shall be charged and collected: Filing fee - R750; research fee - R20; transcript of records, additional copy of any record, decision, ruling or entry (per page) - R7; certificate not on process (per page) - R10;

Search of any record of more than one year outstanding and reading the same - R15; service of temporary restraining order or writ of injunction, preliminary or final -R60; filing bonds or other instruments of indemnity or security in provisional remedies per bond or instrument - R24; execution of writ or process to place a party in possession of real estate - R120;

Advertising sale, excluding cost of publication - R60; inventory of goods levied upon when the inventory is ordered by board or its adjudicator per day of actual inventory work - R120; stenographic notes - R7; and witness fee - R35. …
