Bidders are advised to physically inspect the properties they are interested to buy, examine and verify the titles and other evidence of ownership, and determine any unpaid taxes, fees, charges and/or expenses before submitting their bids. Bidders are likewise required to bring proper identification document (ID) with photo and to register at least one hour prior to the deadline for submission of bids. Bid documents such as Bid Forms, Conditions of Bid, and the required format of the Special Power of Attorney and Secretary's Certificate may be downloaded free of charge from the PDIC website, www.pdic.gov.ph. PDIC reserves the right to withdraw without prior notice any or all of the properties offered for sale any time before the deadline for submission of bids.
The expeditious conversion and resolution of assets are among the strategic directions outlined in PDIC’s Roadmap. PDIC, as liquidator of closed banks, holds various asset disposal initiatives such as biddings, auctions and negotiated sale. Proceeds from the sale of closed banks’ properties are added to the pool of liquid assets of these banks for distribution to uninsured depositors and other creditors in accordance with the rules on concurrence and preference of credits. The disposal of these assets increases the chances of recovery of uninsured depositors and creditors of their trapped funds. Meanwhile, proceeds from the sale of corporate assets are added to the Deposit Insurance Fund, PDIC's main fund source for payment of valid deposit insurance claims.
