TCT was not provided to the Seller, only Contract to Sell (Please help.)

Good day! I plan to buy a 200 sq.m lot here in Batangas City. I would like to know the legality of acquiring this property given the following scenario:
1. The seller told me that she was given a contract to sell by the previous owner but the seller opted not to transfer the title to her name so TCT is not available.
2. Since the title is under the name of the original OWNER, if there is an agreement between the OWNER and the SELLER, is the Special Power of Attorney sufficient to process the legal documents associated to the buying of the 200 sq.m lot?
3. What are the documents that we need to ensure that the title will be transferred to my name from the OWNER?
4. What is my legal right if I have already given a downpayment for this property?

Appreciate if you can provide a response the soonest possible.

1. So they're basically saying that they are cancelling the original contract to sell so the original owner could directly sell to you?

2. The SPA should authorize the one selling to you to sign the necessary ABSOLUTE DEED OF SALE in your favor. I'm sorry, in instances like these I advice my clients to at least meet the original owner once and confirm from them that they are really authorizing the one in the SPA to sell. I have encountered so many spurious SPAs before.

3. Absolute deed of sale, acknowledgment receipt, owner's copy of the Title (original). And the SPA.
