The real properties consist of two former bank premises, one condominium unit and 88 residential lots, some of which have improvements.

The properties shall be sold on an “as-is, where-is” basis. Hence, before submitting their bids, prospective buyers are advised to physically inspect the properties they are interested to buy; assess and verify the land titles and other documents; and determine unpaid taxes, fees or expenses. All bids must be accompanied by a bond or deposit equivalent to at least 10% of the submitted bid either in Cash or Manager’s or Cashier’s Check issued by a universal or reputable commercial bank. The winning bidder is required to pay the balance of the bid price not later than October 8, 2013.

For property details, vicinity maps, lot plans and other information, interested bidders may contact Mr. Polo L. Pantaleon, Jr. or Ms. Ma. Jozzenne Claire B. Carandang (Asset Management and Disposal Department III) at telephone numbers 841-4665 or 841-4671.
The regular conduct of public biddings of corporate and closed banks’ assets is in line with the PDIC’s strategic direction of expeditious disposal of non-financial assets as outlined in PDIC’s medium-term Roadmap to 2016. This is also in support of PDIC’s mandate as Liquidator of closed banks. The PDIC converts the closed banks’ assets into cash either through public biddings or negotiated sale to maximize recovery and facilitate distribution of assets to closed banks’ uninsured depositors and creditors.
