Lands Acquired by NHA Exempt from Land Reform

Posted by lexforiphilippines on July 16, 2010

Lands acquired by the National Housing Authority (NHA) for its housing and resettlements projects are exempt from the land reform program, whether they were acquired by the NHA before Presidential Decree No. 1472* took effect or afterwards.  The exemption applies even if the lands so acquired by the NHA are tenanted.  This was the Supreme Court’s holding in the recent case of National Housing Authority vs. The Department of Agrarian Reform Adjudication Board, et al. (G.R. No. 175200; 4 May 2010).
