Mandatory registration of transient residents mulled
by PIO release

House owners, lessors, and operators of accommodation facilities will soon be asked to register their tenants, lessees, boarders, bed spacers, or transients who will stay in the barangays for more than one week.

Councilor Leandro B. Yangot, Jr. proposed an ordinance that intends to deter criminal elements from perpetuating crimes inside rented properties or to elude arrest by moving from one place to another. The move aims to  facilitate tracking of suspects or convicted criminals.

Under the proposed ordinance, all owners of townhouses, apartments, condotels, condominiums, and boarding houses who lease their properties should oversee the registration of their prospective tenants, lessees, boarders, migrants, or transients by requiring them to present a valid identification card with photo and National Bureau of Investigation or police clearance.

Owners, lessors, and operators will also be required to pay P50 to the barangay for the registration of their supposed tenants.

Within five days from commencement of the stay of the tenants, lessees, boarders, migrants, or transients, the ordinance stipulated that the owners and operators shall submit to the barangay the registration form accomplished by their tenants.

A house owner, lessor, or operator found violating the measure shall be penalized with a fine of P1,000 on first offense; P3,000 on second offense; and P5,000 on third offense.

Barangay officials, with the help of the local police, were tasked to enforce the measure and record their findings in their house renter registry book.

Yangot said it has become the modus of most criminal elements to spend some nights and transfer from one house to another to facilitate the commission of crimes and to avoid or elude arrest.

He said the registry of tenants, renters, boarders, migrants or transients within the territorial jurisdiction of the barangay is lacking. A barangay registry is essential to aid in the apprehension of lawless elements.
