my lola executed a deed of donation in favor of my mom when she (mom) was 12 years old, although she has 2 older sisters and a younger brother. first question: is the deed of donation valid?
a couple of years ago, the parish church which was beside us, encroached into the same property. we approached the parish priest and the diocese regarding the encroachment but they are insisting that they have the masterplan of the lots. unfortunately, we do not hold any title for it, only the deed of donation and tax declaration and a map. i believe it is an untitled property up to now. second question: how can we resolve this matter? do we have a right to run after the "stolen" parcel of land (approximately 150sqm).
lastly, would it be possible for us to have the land titled, having only the deed of donation and tax declaration? unfortunately, my lola passed away when my mom was 38.
thank you so much.
