Beware of real estate broker licensure seminars scam

Republic Act 9646 SECTION 14. Qualifications for Applicants for Examination (B) A holder of relevant bachelor’s degree from a state university or college, or other educational institution duly recognized by CHED: Provided, that AS SOON AS a course leading to Bachelor’s Degree in Real Estate Service is implemented by the CHED, the Board shall make this course a requirement for taking the licensure examination;

Please be informed that there is already a CHED MEMO CIRCULAR dated October 25, 2011 that IMPLEMENTS CURRICULUM of the 4-Yr BS Real Estate Management Course last October 2011. Hence, all examinees after starting November 2011 are already required to have graduated the 4-Yr BS REM as a condition to qualify for the licensure examination.

A case is already filed in Ombudsman on NEGLIGENCE RESULTING TO WASTE OF GOVERNMENT RESOURCES last 31 May 2012 against the PRB-RES on negligence of duty, irregularity of conducting examination with Reference No. C-2012-06-0160. Over and above the Ombudsman case, we will also file a Petition Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) to the Supreme Court, with the PRC Commissioner as respondent, to discontinue the issuance of licenses to those who took the exam after October 2011 who have not completed 4-Year BS Real Estate Management course. Though this TRO, the number of victims of the irregularity will stop accumulating.

RA 9646, by itself, stands alone as an IMPLEMENTED LAW. May mga tao talaga na LAW BREAKERS! Palusot nila habang wala pa raw malaking signeage na naka-paskil na BAWAL, ehh tuloy-tuloy lang ang gawaing ILLEGAL kahit sinabi na ng RA 9646 na ILLEGAL. Don't put the Consumers in PERILOUS situation! If you insist that NO ROAD WARNING SIGN means a GO, you should at least put a FULL-DISCLOSURE clause in your ads about the RA 9646 Sec 14B an CHED Memo 25 Oct 2012, and put a MONEY-BACK-GUARANTEE clause!

Nakaka-inis etong mga seminar providers, mentalidad COLORUM! Hanggat hindi hinuhuli, hanggat merong palusot, tuloy ang pag lampastangan sa RA 9646! Mga PASAWAY!


IMPORTANTE PRC to issue ADVISORY that completion of BS Real Estate Management in Philippines is required in all future licensure exams, with reference to RA 9646 Sec 14B in correspondence with CHED Memo Order dated 25 Oct 2011 implementing the BS Real Estate Management curriculum starting school year June 2012.

Everyone, take note ha, this is very important information. It is PRC's mandate to conduct exams once every year (see Sec 12 of RA 9646), so, the PRC may schedule a Broker's Exam in 2013, 2014, 2015 just for mere compliance purpose only. However, RA 9646 and CHED already mandated that starting School Year 2011-2012, the completion of 4-Yr BS Real Estate Management is already a REQUIREMENT for an exam applicant to qualify to take the licensure exam. In short, magkakaroon ng exam every year for mere compliance purpose lang, pero bakante ang exam room kasi walang mag qualify na mag take ng exam until the future will come that the first graduate of 4-Yr Course BS REM will take the exam (perhaps 2016).

Meron nang explicit provision ang RA 9646 Sec 14B, so hindi na kailangan ng PRC Resolution. Ang ilalabas lang ng PRC ay ADVISORY. IPORESP will provide advocacy support to the Advisory.

Pag binasa mo ang Sec 14B, hagip lahat na types of licensure exams (broker, appraiser, consultant) sa requirement na kailangan na ng completion ng 4-yr BS REM para mag qualify mag exam. Hindi lang Brokers Exam ang apektado ng Sec 14 B. Pati ako, apektado ako sa Sec 14B na yan kasi kahit 14 years na ako Broker, hindi na ako maka-exam ng Appraiser, nor Consultant hanggang hindi ako makatapos ng 4-yr course BS REM.

Lahat na PRC Resolution, hindi pwede salungatin ang RA 9646. Kung ako tatanungin, maraming parts ang RESA na kailangan URGENTLY i-revise, repeal, redefine, etc, pero DAPAT idaan sa Legislative Amendment, hindi pwede short-cut. Nakita ko na lahat na loopholes ng RA 9646, that is why I have my own Legislative Agenda. Kung meron sana tayong Party List, mai-susulong natin etong Legislative Agenda ng mabilisan.

For information.

The mainstream economic view is that economic bubbles bring about a temporary boost in wealth and a redistribution of wealth. When prices increase, there is a positive wealth effect (property owners feel richer and spend more), and when they decline, there is a negative wealth effect (property owners feel poorer and spend less). These effects, it is argued, can be smoothed by counter-cyclical monetary and fiscal policies.
