Dreaming of Home
You’ve made your decision to buy your DMCI Home. Now, allow us to guide you through the process and requirements to make your choice become truly yours.
- The first step is to ensure that your home of choice will be reserved for you. This can be done by accomplishing the Client Registration Form provided by your Property Consultant. Once this has been accomplished, the PC will prepare a Computation Sheet that details the payment scheme that will be applied for your home purchase. This process usually takes 3 working days from date of receipt. Lastly, you will be requested to sign the Reservation Agreement, and to make a payment for your Reservation Fee.
- The next step is to accomplish the payment scheme that you will be availing of for your home purchase. There are three available modes of payment: cash, in-house financing, and external financing.
- The final step is to prepare your documentary requirements.

Ownership of a Corporation
- What are your requirements if I choose to put the name of the unit under a corporation? The standard requirements are secretary’s certificate, articles of incorporation, board resolution, and the valid IDs of the corporate secretary.
Release of Land Title
- After full payment of the unit, how long is the processing time for the title to be released? The title is released at least one (1) year from full payment.
Standard Distances and Elevation
- What are the standard distances per building in a mid-rise and high-rise development? The standard distance is 8 meters on the average.
- How many meters is the set-back of our developments from the main road? How about the elevation of the development from road level? The standard set-back and elevation of developments from road level is 3 meters on the average.
- Can I purchase 2 parking slots if my unit is a 2-bedroom? Some projects allow purchase of more than one (1) parking slots, but majority will only permit one (1) slot per unit.
Single-loaded corridor and Lumiventt technology
- What is a single-loaded corridor? What is the Lumiventt technology? A single-loaded corridor is the standard floor layout of DMCI Homes’ developments, where the unit is facing an open area and not another unit, unlike other building developments.
- Meanwhile, the Lumiventt building design is a combination of several building design features that aims to maximize the natural benefits of light (lumen) and air (ventus).
This building design, first introduced by DMCI Homes, allows light to enter and fresh air to freely circulate among common areas and even in the residents’ individual units. First introduced in DMCI Homes’ flagship high-rise project, Tivoli Garden Residences near the Makati CBD, it is now present in other DMCI Homes developments like La Verti Residences in Pasay City and Royal Palm Residences high-rise condos–Kawai and Kamala–in Taguig City.
Employing single-loaded corridors, three-storey-high sky patios at the front and back of each building, breezeways at the end of each floor, and central atriums every five floors, Lumiventt basically allows the high-rise projects to “breathe.”
- Compared to the usual cramped and claustrophobic feeling that is predominant in today’s condominiums, the Lumiventt Advantage promotes healthy breathing and healthy living through wide open spaces, abundant greenery, and the country’s predominant weather conditions.
Water heater and Washing machine
- Is there a provision for water heater and washing machine in all unit types? Some projects offer these provisions, but because of the existence of the service area at the rooftop, the provisions for washer and dryer are already available there and will therefore no longer be available within the unit. See the specifications per project.
