You may refer to below table for the turnaround time for CTC delivery:

Delivery Address Turnaround Time for Delivery
Metro Manila 3-5 working days after payment
Other cities/ provinces outside of Metro Manila but within the Philippines 5-7 working days after payment

*Note: Additional 5-7 working days shall be required for manually-issued titles as this will require validation of the physical Government copy in the concerned Registry of Deeds. You may check the status of your request through the “My Request” page.
You may get instant, up-to-date status of your request by logging in to your account in the eSerbisyo Portal and viewing the “Transaction Status” in the “My Request” Tab.

You may also send an email to
The User Account will be locked once you fail to input the correct password after 5 failed attempts. A link will be automatically sent to your email which will lead you to the Account Recovery Page of the Portal.

For more details, access the User Guide for Account Registration.
You may check if the payment was successfully completed by checking the transaction status in the “My Request” tab. If the status is “Paid”, then this confirms that the payment was successfully transmitted.
A few Registry of Deeds previously issued manual titles that have identical title numbers called Repeating Title Number (“RTN”). If your Title is tagged as RTN, the eSerbisyo Portal requires the Plan, Block and Lot Number to ensure that we will be sending you the correct CTC of Title you are requesting.
All unpaid CTC requests can still be viewed in your “My Request” tab. Just choose the transaction that you wish to continue, and click the “Make Payment” button. You may also visit the previous payment link provided to you for redirection to the transaction summary page.

Likewise, a notification will be sent to your email and mobile number to remind you that your unpaid transaction will soon expire. Once your transaction expires, you will have to fill out a new request.
There are instances when the page count of the title is not yet updated in the database at the time the request was made. After payment, a reassessment is done on the subject title to confirm the actual page count. Only the difference between the initial page assessment and actual page count will be charged to you.

If this happens, you will receive an email notification which contains the instructions on how to settle the additional fees to proceed with your transaction. Note that this fee needs to be settled before LRA can process your CTC request.
The answer is NO. After payment is made, requests for correction, replacement, and cancellation can no longer be accepted. Please make sure that the correct details are provided before you proceed with the payment.

You may request for your manually-issued title to be upgraded to a cTitle (formerly called eTitle) through the LRA’s Title Upgrade Program (TUP). You may proceed to the Registry of Deeds where your manually-issued title is located, submit the necessary requirements and pay the assessed fee.

The system will allow you to make payments within 30 minutes, otherwise, your session may expire. In the event that this happens, immediately inform the eSerbisyo Helpdesk by sending an email to with your transaction information such as your transaction reference number and the details of the requested CTC of Title (e.g. Title number, Plan number, Lot number, Block number). Our Helpdesk Team will check the status of your payment.

There are three (3) scenarios which may have happened to your transaction:
  1. Payment was successful. Should this be the case, the status of your request in the eSerbisyo Portal will be updated accordingly.
  2. Payment failed. Should this happen, the eSerbisyo Helpdesk will send a link to your registered email address to proceed with the payment process.
  3. Double payment was recorded. Should this happen, the eSerbisyo Helpdesk will reach out to you through your registered email to provide you with the LRA refund process.
