This is about the 4 hects farm land bought by my father in 1982 (now deceased) from his cousin (already deceased also) with both surviving spouses left. The problem is the Deed of sale was not annotated in the RD because at that time the mother title was mortgaged in a bank. Now, the children has already redeemed the title from the bank and in fact they are demanding us to return their land because they thought it was just a mortgaged. We showed them the notarized Deed of sale and in fact we were able to get a copy of the file in court in the Hall of Justice.
They alleged that their is a falsification of documents in the deed of sale since the spouse vendor (still alive) used her maiden name in the marital consent without affixing her husband's surname. Atty, is it invalid or could it be ground for any case to be filed against us and the notary public? There was 2 witnesses who signed also but only a specimen signature and no names printed , but witnesses are still visible.
When signing as witness is it necessary to put on the printed names ?
Thank you atty and Mabuhay kayo..
