We sell on cash or installment basis. Our installment plans have terms from 1 to 5 years for easy payments to suit your budget.
Can we use the plot if it is not yet fully paid?
A plot can be used only when it is fully paid. If you need to use the plot while still paying instalments, then the balance has to be paid in full before the plot can be used.
Are there property taxes to pay?
Property taxes are imposed by the local government and collected by the Office of the Municipal Assessor. Should any taxes be imposed then it will be shared pro rata depending on the number and size of your plot.
What is the interment fee for?
The interment fee is paid when burial services are required. The interment fee includes digging services, cement vault and cover, granite marker and use of tents and chairs.

The cost is for the lot only. The building is charged separately. The building is guaranteed for one year for structural defects.

A mausoleum on a typical 4 x 5 sqm lot can accommodate up to eight (8) full remains (6 below ground and 2 above ground niches) and four (4) bone crypts.
Is it true you have to return the plot after 10 years?
No, that is a complete lie. The plot you buy is yours. We started selling plots in April 2007 and no one has involuntarily returned any plot that was bought.
Is it true that the plot owners have to pay P1,000 “buwis” yearly?
No, that is another lie. Under current government regulations, we do not collect any other payments once the plot is transferred to new owners, except for interment purposes.
