I really need your advice. My father bought this piece of land 4 hec in 1982 from his cousin with the title being mortgaged in a bank at that time . In short my father (now deceased ) bought this land without a title, holding the promise of his cousin that as soon as he received the payment he will redeem it from a bank and process the transfer or deed of partition since only 4 hectares was being sold form the original 8 hec. containing in the title. His cousin, the vendor has already passed away few years ago, and now his surviving spouse and children summoned my mother in the barangay for the purpose of reclaiming the land which we positioned since it was bought. The Deed of sale is notarized and was verified true from the hall of justice of South Cotabato. No annotation was being made because the title was not in our position. Was the transaction legal and still in effect? Is true that they can still reclaim or reowned it at the same price? Thank you and looking forward for your reply.
