First, it does not indicate at what price the shares were being sold. 1987 CONSTITUTION OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES.           So far I received two letters from you, one dated April 17 and the other April 29, both 1964. TITLE V PRESCRIPTION. Art. Unenforceable Contracts; Articles 1403 – 1408 of the New Civil Code. The price must be certain, otherwise there is no true consent between the parties.44 There can be no sale without a price.45 Quite recently, this Court reiterated the long-standing doctrine that the manner of payment of the purchase price is an essential element before a valid and binding contract of sale can exist since the agreement on the manner of payment goes into the price such that a, disagreement on the manner of payment is tantamount to a failure to agree on the price.46, Granting arguendo, that the amount of US$36 million was a definite offer, it would remain as a mere offer in the absence of evidence of its acceptance. Traversing the complaint, petitioners alleged that respondents have no cause of action, contending that no perfected contract, whether verbal or written, existed between them.

This Act shall be known as the "Civil Code of the Philippines." 51058, January 27, 1992, 205 SCRA 458. THE TRIAL COURT EXCEEDED ITS AUTHORITY AND JURISDICTION WHEN IT ERRED PROCEDURALLY IN MOTU PROPIO (sic) DISMISSING THE COMPLAINT IN ITS ENTIRETY FOR "LACK OF A VALID CAUSE OF ACTION" WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF A FULL-BLOWN TRIAL AND ON THE MERE MOTION TO DISMISS. Assuming that respondents bid was favored by an oral acceptance made in private by officers of SMAB, the trial court noted, such acceptance was merely preparatory to a formal acceptance by the SMABthe acceptance that would eventually lead to the execution and signing of the contract of sale. The following must appear in a public document: (1) Acts and contracts which have for their object the creation, transmission, modification or extinguishment of real rights over immovable property; sales of real property or of an interest therein a governed by Articles 1403, No. However, respondents second cause of action due to the alleged malicious and deliberate delay of the Phimco management in the delivery of documents necessary for the completion of the audit on time, not being based on the existence of the contract of sale, could stand independently of the action for specific performance and should not be deemed barred by the dismissal of the cause of action predicated on the failed contract. Petitioners stress that respondent Litonjua made it clear in his letters that the quoted prices were merely tentative and still subject to further negotiations between him and the seller. Petitioners argue that the Court of Appeals erred in failing to consider that the Statute of Frauds requires not just the existence of any note or memorandum but that such note or memorandum should evidence an agreement to sell; and, that in this case, there was no word, phrase, or statement in the letters exchanged between the two parties to show or even imply that an agreement had been reached for the sale of the shares to respondent. This case is ordered DISMISSED for lack of a valid cause of action with costs against plaintiffs. The plain text of Article 1403, paragraph (2) is clear that a written note or memorandum, embodying the essentials of the contract and signed by the party charged, or his agent, suffices to make the verbal agreement enforceable, taking it out of the operation of the statute. 1405.           Appeal from an order of the Court of First Instance of Palawan in its Civil Case No. In its Order dated 17 April 1991, the RTC dismissed respondents complaint.19 It ruled that there was no perfected contract of sale between petitioners and respondents. Respondents plea of partial performance should likewise fail. promised to reimburse respondents cost to the extent of US$20,000.00. This Act shall be known as the "Civil Code of the Philippines." (n) Article 2. The Statute of Frauds, embodied in Article 1403 of the Civil Code of the Philippines, does not require that the contract itself be in writing. (2) Consent freely given in the presence of the solemnizing officer. The appellate court overturned the trial courts Order4 dismissing the respondents complaint for specific performance and remanded the case to the trial court for further proceedings. Read Title XII. A contract is defined as a juridical convention manifested in legal form, by virtue of which one or more persons bind themselves in favor of another, or others, or reciprocally, to the fulfillment of a prestation to give, to do, or not to do.32 There can be no contract unless the following requisites concur: (a) consent of the contracting parties; (b) object certain which is the subject matter of the contract; (c) cause of the obligation which is established.33 Contracts are perfected by mere consent, which is manifested by the meeting of the offer and the acceptance upon the thing and the cause which are to constitute the contract.34, Specifically, in the case of a contract of sale, required is the concurrence of three elements, to wit: (a) consent or meeting of the minds, that is, consent to transfer ownership in exchange for the price; (b) determinate subject matter, and (c) price certain in money or its equivalent.35 Such contract is born from the moment there is a meeting of minds upon the thing which is the object of the contract and upon the price.36, In general, contracts undergo three distinct stages, to wit: negotiation; perfection or birth; and consummation. 3. These special agreements require specific enumerated transactions to be evidenced by a writing signed by the party to be charged. Enriquez came to the Philippines in November 1989 and informed the Philippine financial and business circles that the Phimco shares were for sale. He dutifully paid the real estate taxes thereon until his death in 1937. In paragraph (5) of the letter, respondents were supposed to submit their final offer in U.S. dollar terms, at that after the completion of the due diligence process. 601(1936). The Statute does not deprive the parties of the right to contract with respect to the matters therein involved, but merely regulates the formalities.

It was not perfected due to the absence of one essential element which was the price certain in money or its equivalent. Rossis letter dated 11 June 1990, heavily relied upon by respondents, is not complete in itself. A close examination of the complaint reveals that it alleges two distinct causes of action, the first is for specific performance53 premised on the existence of the contract of sale, while the other is solely for damages, predicated on the purported dilatory maneuvers executed by the Phimco management.54, With respect to the first cause of action for specific performance, apart from petitioners alleged refusal to honor the contract of salewhich has never been perfected in the first placerespondents made a number of averments in their complaint all in support of said cause of action. Title XII. An accion reinvindicatoria is an action to recover ownership over real property. 2, and 1405; 18 CONSTITUTION, Article X, Section 3 provides: Section 3. The plaintiff having alleged that the contract is backed by letter and telegram, and the same being a sufficient memorandum, his cause of action is thereby established, especially since the defendant has not denied the letters in question. They comprise: 1. 3. PRELIMINARY TITLE CHAPTER I EFFECT AND APPLICATION OF LAWS . Respondents attempt to prove the alleged verbal acceptance of their US$36 million bid becomes futile in the face of the overwhelming evidence on record that there was in the first place no meeting of the minds with respect to the price. 434 (2001). - AGENCY CHAPTER 1 NATURE, FORM AND KINDS OF AGENCY Article 1868. 16 Republic Act No.           Defendant filed a motion to dismiss upon the ground that the complaint stated no cause of action, and that the plaintiff's claim upon which the action was founded was unenforceable under the Statute of Frauds. 67 of the Puerto Princesa Cadastre at P4.00 a square meter; that the deal had been "closed by letter and telegram" but the actual execution of the deed of sale and payment of the price were deferred to the arrival of defendant at Puerto Princesa; that defendant upon arrival had refused to execute the deed of sale altho plaintiff was able and willing to pay the price, and continued to refuse despite written demands of plaintiff; that as a result, plaintiff had lost expected profits from a resale of the property, and caused plaintiff mental anguish and suffering, for which reason the complaint prayed for specific performance and damages. Petitioners filed a motion for a preliminary hearing of their defense of bar by the Statute of Frauds, which the trial court granted. 120747, September 21, 2000, 340 SCRA 720. It is dramatically clear that the US$36 million was not the actual price agreed upon but merely a preliminary offer which was subject to adjustment after the conclusion of the audit of the company finances. The appellate court concluded that the letters exchanged by and between the parties, taken together, were sufficient to establish that an agreement to sell the disputed shares to respondents was reached. 39 Ang Yu v. Asuncion, G.R. Even if we were to consider the letters between the parties as a sufficient memorandum for purposes of taking the case out of the operation of the Statute the action for specific performance would still fail. 29. Mutuality- the bind must involve both of the parties,so that the validity or compliance of a contract cannot be left t… He indicated that SMAB would be prepared to negotiate with ALS on an exclusive basis for a period of fifteen (15) days from 26 September 1990 subject to the terms contained in the letter.

Rossi added that in case the "global deal" presently under negotiation for the Swedish Match Lights Group would materialize, SMAB would reimburse up to US$20,000.00 of ALS costs related to the due diligence process.8, Litonjua in a letter dated 18 June 1990, expressed disappointment at the apparent change in SMABs approach to the bidding process. If substantiated, this cause of action would entitle respondents to the recovery of damages against the officers of the corporation responsible for the acts complained of. No. Princess for next week.           The sole issue here is whether enforcement of the contract pleaded in the complaint is barred by the Statute of Frauds; and the Court a quo plainly erred in holding that it was unenforceable. All these incidents, according to respondents, overwhelmingly prove that the contract of sale of the Phimco shares was perfected. Title X. Obligatory - the force of lawbetween the contracting parties compel them to perform under the threat of civil action or lawsuit. Article 1403 March 25, 2016 The following contracts are unenforceable, unless they are ratified: Those entered into in the name of another person by one who has been given no authority or legal representation, or who has acted beyond his powers; Several interested parties tendered offers to acquire the Phimco shares, among whom were the AFP Retirement and Separation Benefits System, herein respondent ALS Management & Development Corporation and respondent Antonio Litonjua (Litonjua), the president and general manager of ALS.

The term "Statute of Frauds" is descriptive of statutes which require certain classes of contracts to be in writing. – “Year” shall be understood to be twelve calendar months; “month” of thirty days, unless it refers to a specific calendar month in which case it shall be 128120             October 20, 2004. The note or memorandum must contain the names of the parties, the terms and conditions of the contract, and a description of the property sufficient to render it capable of identification.28 Such note or memorandum must contain the essential elements of the contract expressed with certainty that may be ascertained from the note or memorandum itself, or some other writing to which it refers or within which it is connected, without resorting to parol evidence.29, Contrary to the Court of Appeals conclusion, the exchange of correspondence between the parties hardly constitutes the note or memorandum within the context of Article 1403 of the Civil Code. He informed Rossi that it may not be possible for them to submit their final bid on 30 June 1990, citing the advice to him of the auditing firm that the financial statements would not be completed until the end of July. They contended that the Phimco management took an interest in acquiring for itself the Phimco shares and that petitioners conspired to thwart the closing of such sale by interposing various obstacles to the completion of the acquisition audit.16 Respondents claimed that the Phimco management maliciously and deliberately delayed the delivery of documents to Laya Manabat Salgado & Co. which prevented them from completing the acquisition audit in time for the deadline on 30 June 1990 set by petitioners.17 Respondents added that SMABs refusal to consummate the perfected sale of the Phimco shares amounted to an abuse of right and constituted conduct which is contrary to law, morals, good customs and public policy.18.           Art. The Statute of Frauds, embodied in Article 1403 of the Civil Code of the Philippines, does not require that the contract itself be in writing. This Code shall take effect one year after such publication. At any rate, from the procedural stand point, the continuing objections raised by petitioners to the admission of parol evidence50 on the alleged verbal acceptance of the offer rendered any evidence of acceptance inadmissible.           Plaintiff duly appealed to this Court. The following contracts are unenforceable, unless they are ratified: (2) Those that do not comply with the Statute of Frauds as set forth in this number.           Plaintiff also appended as Annex "A-1", a telegram apparently from defendant advising plaintiff of his arrival by boat about the last week of May 1964 (Annex "A-1" Record on Appeal, p. 21), as well as a previous letter of defendant (Appendix B, Record on Appeal, p. 35) referring to the lot as the one covered by Certificate of Title No. The plain text of Article 1403, paragraph (2) is clear that a written note or memorandum, embodying the essentials of the contract and signed by the party charged, or his agent, suffices to make the verbal agreement enforceable, taking it out of the operation of the statute. I will send you a telegram, as per your request, when I will reach Manila before taking the boat for Pto. Laws shall take effect after fifteen days following the completion of their publication in the Official Gazette, unless it is otherwise provided. Moreover, Litonjua signified their inability to submit their final bid on 30 June 1990, at the same time stating that the broad terms and conditions described in their meeting were inadequate for them to make a response at that time so much so that he would have to await the corresponding specifics. Additionally, Enriquez clarified that if the sale would not be completed at the end of the fifteen (15)-day period, SMAB would enter into negotiations with other buyers.14, Shortly thereafter, Litonjua sent a letter expressing his objections to the totally new set of terms and conditions for the sale of the Phimco shares. 2. The offer must be certain and the acceptance absolute. At any rate, if the Court below entertained any doubts about the existence of the written memorandum, it should have called for a preliminary hearing on that point, and not dismissed the complaint. 268-270 cited in Jurado, Comments and Jurisprudence on Obligations and Contracts, 1993 Ed., p. 354. Art. 3. Dizon, Makalintal, Bengzon, J.P., Zaldivar, Sanchez, Castro, Angeles and Fernando, JJ., concur. When a person, claiming to be injured by a criminal offense, charges another with the same, for which no independent civil action is granted in this Code or any special law, but the justice of the peace finds no reasonable grounds to believe that a crime has been committed, or the prosecuting attorney refuses or fails to institute criminal proceedings, the complainant may bring a civil action for damages against … The court a quo said that the letter dated 11 June 1990, relied upon by respondents, showed that petitioners did not accept the bid offer of respondents as the letter was a mere invitation for respondents to conduct a due diligence process or pre-acquisition audit of Phimcos match and forestry operations to enable them to submit their final offer on 30 June 1990. However, Rossi made it clear that at the completion of the due diligence process, ALS should submit its final offer in US dollar terms not later than 30 June 1990, for the shares of SMAB corresponding to ninety-six percent (96%) of the Match and Forestry activities of Phimco. 109125, December 2, 1994, 238 SCRA 1994. On the other hand, the submission of the comfort letter was merely a guarantee that respondents had the financial capacity to pay the price in the event that their bid was accepted by petitioners. These contracts are enumerated under Chapter 8, Articles 1403 paragraph (2) of the Civil Code of the Philippines. 2. Rossi informed respondents that their price offer was below their expectations but urged them to undertake a comprehensive review and analysis of the value and profit potentials of the Phimco shares, with the assurance that respondents would enjoy a certain priority although several parties had indicated their interest to buy the shares.6.           Appellant Cirilo Parades had filed an action to compel defendant-appellee Jose L. Espino to execute a deed of sale and to pay damages. No marriage shall be valid, unless these essential requisites are present: (1) Legal capacity of the contracting parties who must be a male and a female; and.

No. This offer, however, in Litonjuas own words, "is understood to be subject to adjustment on the basis of an audit of the assets, liabilities and net worth of Phimco and its subsidiaries and on the final negotiation between ourselves."42. SMNV initiated steps to sell the worldwide match and lighter businesses while retaining for itself the shaving business.

He stressed that they were firmly committed to their bid of US$36 million and if ever there would be adjustments in the bid amount, the adjustments were brought about by SMABs subsequent disclosures and validated accounts, such as the aspect that only ninety-six percent (96%) of Phimco shares was actually being sold and not one-hundred percent (100%).13, More than two months from receipt of Litonjuas last letter, Enriquez sent a fax communication to the former, advising him that the proposed sale of SMABs shares in Phimco with local buyers did not materialize.
