Revocation of donation
Did you know that you may revoke the donation that you made to a person when that person failed to fulfill the conditions you set in the Deed of Donation?
This is in accordance with Article 764 of the New Civil Code of the Philippines, which states that:
"Article 764. The donation shall be revoked at the instance of the donor, when the donee fails to comply with any of the conditions which the former imposed upon the latter.
"In this case, the property donated shall be returned to the donor, the alienations made by the donee and the mortgages imposed thereon by him being void, with the limitations established, with regard to third persons, by the Mortgage Law and the Land Registration laws.
"This action shall prescribe after four years from the noncompliance with the condition, may be transmitted to the heirs of the donor, and may be exercised against the donee's heirs."
Based on the above-stated law, the donor may revoke the donation that he made if the donee fails to comply or fulfill the condition set or imposed upon the donee in the Deed of Donation.
