My grandmother died on the year 1988. She has a parcel of agricultural land located in San Fabian, Pangasinan under her name, approximately 4,287 Sq.m and she did not leave any will. For the longest time, her 9 children did not in anyway transfer nor partitioned this land and titled individually. As of this moment only one (1) child is alive and the rest died including my father.
Since this is the situation. My uncle who is the direct and only living heir of my grandmother decided that the land will be partitioned accordingly in equal share to the family of his siblings in way of Donation.
Me as my father's representative, my cousins who represented their sides including my uncle had the lot re-surveyed and partitioned it in 9 equal shares. Eventually the subdivision plan was approved by the LRA-Manila.
My question now is this, as I needed your recommendation or suggestion as to what step to do next. As my uncle and the rest asked me to handle everything. Since the mother title is still under the name of my grandmother, what is best suitable for the situation? An extra judicial settlement estate with simultaneous deed of donation be made? if this would be, considering that we are not the direct heir of my grandmother but my uncle.
Or an Affidavit of Self-adjudication with simultaneous Deed of Donation would be made since my uncle is the sole and only living child of my grandmother?
In addition, one part of the share was already sold to one of us and been waived by the family.
Thank you sir, your suggestion will be a big help.
