Dear Atty. AGA,
Good day sir. I am an avid reader of your column. I got married last November 2006. We have no marriage settlement during our marriage. I am a little bit puzzled attorney with the properties I inherited from my deceased parents.
My husband keeps on telling me that I can not sell the said inherited properties since they belong to our community property and I need to secure his consent first.
Is this true attorney? Thank you and more power.
We thank you also for the support. In connection with your query, you can legally sell your inherited properties even without the consent of your husband.
Since your marriage is governed by the Family Code which took effect on August 3, 1988 and you have no marriage settlement, the regime of absolute community of property shall commence at the precise moment the marriage is celebrated. Under the Family Code, the community property shall consist of all the property owned by the spouses at the time of the celebration of the marriage or acquired thereafter except those excluded by Article 92 of the Family Code.
Sa Article 92 kasi nakasaad ang mga exclusions o ang mga properties na itinuturing na hindi kabilang sa community property.
Isa sa mga exclusions ang property acquired during the marriage by gratuitous title by either spouse, and the fruits as well as the income thereof, unless expressly provided by the donor, testator, or grantor that they shall form part of the community property. Ang “gratuitous title” ay nangangahulugan na nakuha by donation, testate or intestate succession. The fruits and income of the property acquired by donation or succession are also excluded.
Dahil dito, excluded sa community regime ninyo ang mga properties na namana mo sa iyong mga magulang. Samakatuwid, maaari mo itong ibenta kahit na walang consent ng iyong asawa.
