In a statement, PDIC said that the assets included three residential properties located in the cities of Antipolo, Bacolod and Tacloban; and a commercial property measuring 2,011 square meters situated along Taft Avenue in Pasay City.
“Three of the sold properties were owned by closed banks under PDIC liquidation. The Pasay City property is a PDIC-owned asset,” the agency said.
PDIC added that its Real and Other Properties Acquired (ROPA) Disposal Committee approved the offers to buy on October 29 on installment basis up to seven years, at 6-percent interest rate.
