By With No comments:
Facts:
  • On June 23, 1971, Isabel, Consuelo and Serapia Tesalona filed an application for registration of five (5) parcels of land with the CFI of Quezon, Gumaca Branch. 
  • They alleged that they acquired the lands through succession from their mother Magdalena. 
  • They said that their great grand mother Maria Rosita Lorenzo acquired 7.4343 hectares of land located in Quezon under a possessory information title dated May 20, 1896 under the Royal Decree of February 13, 1894.
  • The Director of Lands through the Assistant Provincial Fiscal of Quezon filed his opposition to the application alleging that neither the applicants nor their predecessors-in-interest had sufficient title of the land applied for nor had they been in possession thereof for a period of at least thirty (30) years immediately preceding the filing of the application and that the same is public land.
  • Constancio dela Pena Tan likewise filed an opposition even as he supported the government's contention that the lands applied for are part of the public domain. Tan averred that he had possessed the land as lessee for a period of more than thirty five (35) years. She said that the lands were converted into fishponds and had been subject of a sales application sometime in 1963. 11 The application to purchase filed by Constancio is still pending before the Bureau of Lands.

  • The CA ruled that lots 1-5 should be registered under the names of Tesalona’s siblings.
  • The Director of lands filed the instant petition.
