Good day,

This may be a very long message but I beg you to take a look on this. I've been living in Sitio Rio Lahug Cebu City for 9 years already together with my parents. I am now planning to renovate our house but before spending money, I want to make sure I'm not gonna waste it after few years. My neighbors said this area is an Urban Poor which we are not really sure about it. By the way we paid 5,000 for having the right to stay in this place (where our house is built)- we give the money to the one who lived here before.

So my question is, is this area an Urban Poor? Our exact location is near Hacienda Sallenas - 20-houses away from the river going up in the mountain/hilltop (well its not really a river. I would say big drainage perhaps, since the water will only flow during heavy rain). You can actually see a lot of big houses here but I don't really know if they own the lot.

If this is an Urban poor, what will be the process in having this lot be under my name (maybe), who will be the right person to talk to or at least we can make sure that nobody will easily threaten us to be driven away. We actually dreamt to have one of those "Affordable Housing Program" but sad to say, we can't really afford it. I wonder why they call it "Affordable" (well, maybe for the rich people).

I hope you can make these things clear. I've been searching this kind of website that could answer my concern and I was happy I was able to find it. I just want to make sure that everything's good before spending another money. Looking forward to your response.

Thank you so much.
