Foreigners Restrictions in Leasing a Land in the Philippines

Foreigners cannot buy or own a land in the Philippines but they can lease the land. They can get into long-term leases if they want. But what are the restrictions to the foreigners leasing a land in the Philippines?
The Philippine law has a Lease Investment Act. Foreigners can lease the land for a period of 50 years provided that those land or property will be used for investment purposes. And this is subject to extension by mutual agreement of the parties for another 5 years. The lease contract is renewable every 25 years.

The foreigner can rent a lot in the Philippines and at the same time legally own the house on the rented land.
