BPI vs CONCEPCION the creditor may demand of the third person in possession of the property mortgaged payment of such

part of the debt, as is secured by the property in his possession, in the manner and form established by law. As will be seen, the mortgagee has the election of one out of three courses in case of the death of the debtor (1) He may abandon his security and share in the general distribution of the assets of the estate, or (2) he may foreclose, secure a deficiency judgment and prove his deficiency judgment before the committee, or (3) he may rely upon his security alone, in which case he can receive no share in the distribution of the assets of the estate.

CALTEX vs IAC where a debt is secured by a mortgage and there is a default in payment on the part of the mortgagor, the mortgagee has a choice of one (1) of two (2) remedies, but he cannot have both. The mortgagee may: 1) foreclosure the mortgage; or 2) file an ordinary action to collect the debt. DEFICIENCY JUDGMENT one for the balance of the indebtedness after applying the proceeds of the sale When the mortgagee chooses the foreclosure of the mortgage as a remedy, he enforces his lien by the sale on foreclosure of the mortgaged property. The proceeds of the sale will be applied to the satisfaction of the debt. With this remedy, he has a prior lien on the property. In case of a deficiency, the mortgagee has the right to claim for the deficiency resulting from the price obtained in the sale of the real property at public auction and the outstanding obligation at the time of the foreclosure proceedings (Soriano v. Enriquez, 24 Phil. 584; Banco de Islas Filipinas v. Concepcion Hijos, 53 Phil. 86; Banco Nacional v. Barreto, 53 Phil. 101).lwph1.t The collection suit filed before the trial court cannot be considered as a deficiency judgment because a deficiency judgment has been defined as one for the balance of the indebtedness after applying the proceeds of the sale of the mortgaged property to such indebtedness and is necessarily filed after the foreclosure proceedings. It is significant to note that the judgment rendered by the trial court was for the full amount of the indebtedness and the case was filed prior to the foreclosure proceedings.

In general, a deficiency judgment is in the nature of an ordinary money judgment, may constitute a cause of action and is barred by the statute of limitations applicable to ordinary judgment (59 C.J.S. 1497). The ten (10) year period provided in Articles 1142 and 1144 of the Civil Code applies to a suit for deficiency judgment, to wit: Art. 1142. A mortgage action prescribes after ten years. (1964a) Art. 1144. The following actions must be brought with ten years from the time the right of action accrues: (1) Upon a written contract; (2) Upon an obligation created by law; (3) Upon a judgment. (n) For non-payment of a note secured by mortgage, the creditor has a single cause of action against the debtor. This single cause of action consists in the recovery of the credit with execution of the security. In other words, the creditor in his action may make two demands, the payment of the debt and the foreclosure of his mortgage DE CASTRO vs. IAC Ang maka redeem: debtor, successors in interest, judicial creditor of the debtor having a lien on the property mortgaged one who has interest in the property and a loser if forclosed one with deed of sale with assumption of mortgage The sale of a mortgaged property at public auction by reason of an extrajudicial foreclosure of mortgage is governed by Act No. 3135, as amended by Act No. 4118. Under the cited law, a right of redemption is granted to the debtor, his successor-ininterest or any judicial creditor of said debtor or any person having a lien on the property subsequent to the mortgage or deed of trust under which the property is sold, within a period of one (1) year from the date of the sale: and such redemption is governed by Sections 29, 30 and 31. Rule 39 of the Revised Rules of Court. 7 The matter of redemption is wholly statutory. Only such persons can redeem from an execution sale as are authorized to do so by statute. 8 In determining whether a person is included within the terms of a redemption statute, the principle is stated to be that, if one is in privity in title with the mortgagor, and he has such an interest that he would be a loser by the foreclosure, he may redeem. 9 Redemption is proper where made by debtors, grantee, or assignee for the benefit of creditors, or assignee or trustee in insolvency proceedings. 10 In Gorospe vs. Santos 11 the Court, citing Magno vs. Viola and Sotto, 12 said: we held in Magno v. Viola that the successor-in-interest includes one to whom the debtor has transferred his statutory right of redemption

the one with deed of sale with assumption of mortgage, may validly exercise the right of redemption as successors in interest successors in interest: successors in interest by operation of law whom the debtor has conveyed his interest in the property for the purpose of redemption; one or more joint debtors who were joint owners of the property sold actual notice by the contracting parties is equivalent to registration here is no question, in our mind, that the right of redemption of petitioners exists and jurisprudence has established that transfer of said right from the original debtor-mortgagor need not be registered with the Register of Deeds to enable the transferee or assignee to exercise the same. DULAY vs. CARRIAGA the redemption of properties sold at an execution sale, the amount payable is no longer the judgment debt, but the purchase price shall, within one year from the date of the auction sale, have the right to redeem the real property by paying to the Bank an the amount he owed the latter on the date of the sale, with interest on the total indebtedness at the rate agreed upon in the obligation from said date,

LIMPIN vs IAC will an equity of redemption be recognized more than a year after the judgment has become final and executory? This is the mortgagor's equity (not right) of redemption which, as above stated, may be exercised by him even beyond the 90day period "from the date of service of the order,' and even after the foreclosure sale itself, provided it be before the order of confirmation of the sale. 25 After such order of confirmation, no redemption can be effected any longer. Equity of redemption can be exercised before the judicial sale is confirmed by the court


Unrecorded Sale is superior to a subsequent registered mortgage an unrecorded sale of a prior date and a recorded mortgage of a later date the former is preferred to the latter for the reason that if the original owner had parted with his ownership of the thing sold then he no longer had the ownership and free disposal of that thing so as to be able to mortgage it again Registration of the mortgage under Act No. 3344 would, in such case, be of no moment since it is understood to be without prejudice to the better right of third parties The sale w/ the stipulation pacto de retro is actually an equitable mortgage. Since the mortgage to de Leon was recorded first in the registry of properties then he has a better right than the previous transaction PNB vs. CA fraudulent or forged document of sale may become the ROOT of a valid title if the certificate of title has already been transferred from the name of the true owner to the name of the forger or the name indicated by the forger. , although an original owner of a registered land may seek the Annulment of a transfer thereof on the ground of fraud, such a remedy, however, is 'without prejudice to the rights of any innocent holder for value of the certificate of title. The right or lien of an innocent mortgagee for value upon the land mortgaged must be respected and protected, even if the mortgagor obtained his title through fraud. The remedy of the persons prejudiced is to bring an action for damages against those who caused the fraud, and if the latter are insolvent, an action against the Treasurer of the Philippines may be filed for recovery of damages against the Assurance Fund.

RAMIREZ vs CA , that the assignment vested in petitioner the right to redeem the property, did she exercise such right? . . . petitioner (assuming her right to redeem) failed to exercise that right within the period granted by law when she redeemed the property only on August 19, 1980. 5 petitioner after the one (1) year period had expired. By accepting the redemption price after the statutory period for redemption had expired, PNB is considered to have waived the one (1) year period within which Ramirez could redeem the property. There is nothing in the law which prevents such a waiver. The rights of a second mortgagee are strictly subordinate to the superior lien of the first mortgagee

SAMANILLA vs. CAJUCOM Once a mortgage has been signed in due form, the mortgagee is entitled to its registration as a matter of right. Consideration is presumed sufficient By executing the mortgage the mortgagor is understood to have given his consent to its registration, and he cannot be permitted to revoke it unilaterally. The validity and fulfillment of contracts cannot be left to the will of one of the contracting parties To overcome the presumption of consideration, appellants must show the alleged lack of consideration of the mortgage by preponderance of evidence in a proper action. SANTIAGO vs. PIONEER foreclosure is but a necessary consequence of non-payment of a mortgage indebtedness A mortgage directly and immediately subjects the property upon which it is imposed to the fulfillment of the obligation for whose security it was constituted. 6 Kinds of foreclosure Judicial bring an action for that purpose in a proper court or extrajudicial express authority to sell given to mortgagee Ordinary action by the mortgagee Foreclosure by mortgage under power of sale by the mortgagee Mortgage is a mere security not a satisfaction for an obligation- mortgagee can still recover the deficiency Stipulation of upset price in mortgages are void: it must be sold to the highest bidder Requisites of Redemption: Within one year from the registration of the certificate of sale Payment of purchase price, 1 % interest, taxes *****payment must be made in the prescribed period
