A. Definition of sale
Art. 1458
. By the contract of sale one of thecontracting parties obligates himself to transfer theownership and to deliver a determinate thing, and theother to pay therefor a price certain in money or itsequivalent.A contract of sale may be absolute or conditional.(1445a)The definition in Art 1458 brings about the creation of two sets of obligations: for the seller, (1) to transferownership and (2) deliver possession of the subjectmatter; for the buyer: to pay the price. Obligations,as referred to in the Article, are obligations to give;thus it may be the subject of actions for specificperformance.
B. Characteristics of a contract of sale1.
– it has a peculiar name and form asprescribed in the law2.
– it is founded upon and completedby mere consent of the contracting parties
(See Article 1475)
Art. 1475.
The contract of sale is perfected at themoment there is a meeting of minds upon the thingwhich is the object of the contract and upon the price.From that moment, the parties may reciprocallydemand performance, subject to the provisions of thelaw governing the form of contracts. (1450a)3.
– it is a contract in which each of the contracting parties gives a thing of value andreceives an equivalent4.
it is a contract in which both thecontracting parties are bound to fulfill the obligationsreciprocally towards each other (i.e. the vendorbecomes bound to deliver the thing sold and thevendee to pay the price for it)
: Sale being a consensual contract, isperfected by mere consent, which is manifested the momentthere is a meeting of the minds as to the offer and acceptancethereof on 3 elements: price, subject matter and terms of payment. Ownership by the seller on the thing sold at the time of perfection of the contract of sale is not an element for itsperfection. What the law requires is that the seller has the right totransfer ownership at the time the thing sold is delivered.
– as opposed to gratuitous, becausethe thing is sold in consideration of a price andvice versa6.
– it can stand on its own; unlike anaccessory contractC. Kinds of a contract of sale1.
– where the sale is not subject toany condition whatsoever and where title passesto the buyer upon the delivery of the thing sold.2.
– where the sale contemplates acontingency and in general, where the contract issubject to certain conditions (usually the fullpayment of the purchase price). Conditions areattached to the contract; the title will only passonce the conditions have been fulfilled.D. Sale as distinguished from other contracts
