If the apportionment of costs has not yet been decreed, the same section 18, paragraph bprovides that the registrar shall endorse on the certificate of transfer issued by him the incumbrance or lien appearing on the former certificate as guarantee of the payment of the costs above referred to.

A copy of the notice shall also be sent to the president of such municipality, township, or settlement, and to the provincial board.

This is borne out by the provisions of sections 6 of Act No. Pampanga Sugar Mills has refused and still refuses to make said payment.

The municipal treasurer of Angeles, Pampanga, by instructions of the provincial treasurer, also required Martina Martin to pay the said fees and costs. As amended by SectionAct No. Said official shall also cause a duly, attested copy of the notice to be posted, in a conspicuous place on the lands included in the petition and also in a conspicuous place upon the chief municipal building of the city, municipality, township, or settlement in which the lands or a portion thereof are situated, by the sheriff of the province, or by his deputy, or by such other person as may be designated by the Chief of the General Land Registration Office, fourteen days at least before the return day thereof.

Without paying the corresponding fees for expenses of survey and costs of said lot noted as a lien according to the preceding paragraph, without any court order declaring that said costs of cadastral survey are already paid, and without presentation by Martina Martin in the office of the registrar of deeds of the corresponding receipt of payment of said fees, the registrar of deeds of the Province of Pampanga erroneously issued transfer certificate of title No.
