The Statute of Frauds embodied in Article 1403, paragraph (2), of the Civil Code 22 requires certain contracts enumerated therein to be evidenced by some note or memorandum in order to be enforceable. If substantiated, this cause of action would entitle respondents to the recovery of damages against the officers of the corporation responsible for the acts complained of. B.

Egerton, 288 Fed. 62. 2, and 1405; 67 of the Puerto Princesa Cadastre at P4.00 a square meter; that the deal had been "closed by letter and telegram" but the actual execution of the deed of sale and payment of the price were deferred to the arrival of defendant at Puerto Princesa; that defendant upon arrival had refused to execute the deed of sale altho plaintiff was able and willing to pay the price, and continued to refuse despite written demands of plaintiff; that as a result, plaintiff had lost expected profits from a resale of the property, and caused plaintiff mental anguish and suffering, for which reason the complaint prayed for specific performance and damages. promised to reimburse respondents’ cost to the extent of US$20,000.00.           Defendant filed a motion to dismiss upon the ground that the complaint stated no cause of action, and that the plaintiff's claim upon which the action was founded was unenforceable under the Statute of Frauds. Article 13 has been superseded by Executive Order No. By the contract of agency a person binds himself to render some service or to do something in representation or on behalf of another, with the consent or authority of the latter.

Quite the contrary, they indicated that the sale was far from concluded. The plaintiff having alleged that the contract is backed by letter and telegram, and the same being a sufficient memorandum, his cause of action is thereby established, especially since the defendant has not denied the letters in question.           The sole issue here is whether enforcement of the contract pleaded in the complaint is barred by the Statute of Frauds; and the Court a quo plainly erred in holding that it was unenforceable. No. Respondents’ attempt to prove the alleged verbal acceptance of their US$36 million bid becomes futile in the face of the overwhelming evidence on record that there was in the first place no meeting of the minds with respect to the price. As it is now, there is no schedule yet of the boats plying between Manila and Pto. Due to its wide coverage and impact, the Civil Code is the subject of much study and extensive commentary.

Petitioners stress that respondent Litonjua made it clear in his letters that the quoted prices were merely tentative and still subject to further negotiations between him and the seller. He indicated that SMAB would be prepared to negotiate with ALS on an exclusive basis for a period of fifteen (15) days from 26 September 1990 subject to the terms contained in the letter. 2. The Civil Code took effect in 1950. 434 (2001). 3. A qualified acceptance constitutes a counter-offer.41, Quite obviously, Litonjua’s letter dated 21 May 1990, proposing the acquisition of the Phimco shares for US$36 million was merely an offer. The Statute does not deprive the parties of the right to contract with respect to the matters therein involved, but merely regulates the formalities. No. 601(1936).

The Statute of Frauds is applicable only to contracts which are executory and not to those which have been consummated either totally or partially.51 If a contract has been totally or partially performed, the exclusion of parol evidence would promote fraud or bad faith, for it would enable the defendant to keep the benefits already derived by him from the transaction in litigation, and at the same time, evade the obligations, responsibilities or liabilities assumed or contracted by him thereby.52 This rule, however, is predicated on the fact of ratification of the contract within the meaning of Article 1405 of the Civil Code either (1) by failure to object to the presentation of oral evidence to prove the same, or (2) by the acceptance of benefits under them. 1405. Swedish Match AB (hereinafter SMAB) is a corporation organized under the laws of Sweden not doing business in the Philippines. Unenforceable Contracts; Articles 1403 – 1408 of the New Civil Code.

The appellate court opined that any document or writing, whether formal or informal, written either for the purpose of furnishing evidence of the contract or for another purpose which satisfies all the Statute’s requirements as to contents and signature would be. Petitioners argue that the Court of Appeals erred in failing to consider that the Statute of Frauds requires not just the existence of any note or memorandum but that such note or memorandum should evidence an agreement to sell; and, that in this case, there was no word, phrase, or statement in the letters exchanged between the two parties to show or even imply that an agreement had been reached for the sale of the shares to respondent. Additionally, Enriquez clarified that if the sale would not be completed at the end of the fifteen (15)-day period, SMAB would enter into negotiations with other buyers.14, Shortly thereafter, Litonjua sent a letter expressing his objections to the totally new set of terms and conditions for the sale of the Phimco shares. — The following contracts are unenforceable, unless they are ratified: (2) Those that do not comply with the Statute of Frauds as set forth in this number. Article 42. 17 See Respondents’ Comment, pp. The effect of death upon the rights and obligations of the deceased is determined by law, by contract and by will.

Both parties agreed to adopt as their evidence in support of or against the motion to dismiss, as the case may be, the evidence which they adduced in support of their respective positions on the writ of preliminary injunction incident. This offer, however, in Litonjua’s own words, "is understood to be subject to adjustment on the basis of an audit of the assets, liabilities and net worth of Phimco and its subsidiaries and on the final negotiation between ourselves."42. He emphasized that the new offer constituted an attempt to reopen the already perfected contract of sale of the shares in his favor. Enriquez then invited Litonjua to resume negotiations with SMAB for the sale of Phimco shares. The same piece of land purchased by Cecilio would, however, become the subject of protracted litigation thirty-nine years after his death.

Rossi added that in case the "global deal" presently under negotiation for the Swedish Match Lights Group would materialize, SMAB would reimburse up to US$20,000.00 of ALS’ costs related to the due diligence process.8, Litonjua in a letter dated 18 June 1990, expressed disappointment at the apparent change in SMAB’s approach to the bidding process. 39 Ang Yu v.

Princess for next week. ... (Article 1403, paragraph 2) requires that certain contracts be in writing, and that they be signed by all parties to be bound by the contract. Article 1. He stressed that they were firmly committed to their bid of US$36 million and if ever there would be adjustments in the bid amount, the adjustments were brought about by SMAB’s subsequent disclosures and validated accounts, such as the aspect that only ninety-six percent (96%) of Phimco shares was actually being sold and not one-hundred percent (100%).13, More than two months from receipt of Litonjua’s last letter, Enriquez sent a fax communication to the former, advising him that the proposed sale of SMAB’s shares in Phimco with local buyers did not materialize. All these incidents, according to respondents, overwhelmingly prove that the contract of sale of the Phimco shares was perfected. THE TRIAL COURT EXCEEDED ITS AUTHORITY AND JURISDICTION WHEN IT ERRED PROCEDURALLY IN MOTU PROPIO (sic) DISMISSING THE COMPLAINT IN ITS ENTIRETY FOR "LACK OF A VALID CAUSE OF ACTION" WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF A FULL-BLOWN TRIAL AND ON THE MERE MOTION TO DISMISS. The price must be certain, otherwise there is no true consent between the parties.44 There can be no sale without a price.45 Quite recently, this Court reiterated the long-standing doctrine that the manner of payment of the purchase price is an essential element before a valid and binding contract of sale can exist since the agreement on the manner of payment goes into the price such that a, disagreement on the manner of payment is tantamount to a failure to agree on the price.46, Granting arguendo, that the amount of US$36 million was a definite offer, it would remain as a mere offer in the absence of evidence of its acceptance. He told Litonjua that his bid would no longer be considered unless the local group would fail to consummate the transaction on or before 15 September1990.12, Apparently irked by SMAB’s decision to junk his bid, Litonjua promptly responded by letter dated 4 July 1990. Respondents also asked that petitioners be ordered to execute all documents or instruments and perform all acts necessary to consummate the sales agreement in their favor. However, when the law requires that a contract be in some form in order that it may be valid or enforceable, or that a contract be proved in a certain way, that requirement is absolute and indispensable.24 Consequently, the effect of non-compliance with the requirement of the Statute is simply that no action can be enforced unless the requirement is complied with.25 Clearly, the form required is for evidentiary purposes only. 27 Asia Productions Co., Inc. v. Pano, et. Puno, Austria-Martinez, Callejo, Sr., and Chico-Nazario, JJ., concur. The court a quo said that the letter dated 11 June 1990, relied upon by respondents, showed that petitioners did not accept the bid offer of respondents as the letter was a mere invitation for respondents to conduct a due diligence process or pre-acquisition audit of Phimco’s match and forestry operations to enable them to submit their final offer on 30 June 1990. They point out that there was no meeting of the minds on the essential terms and conditions of the sale because SMAB did not accept respondents’ offer that consideration would be paid in Philippine pesos. Perfection or birth of the contract takes place when the parties agree upon the essential elements of the contract. A contract is defined as a juridical convention manifested in legal form, by virtue of which one or more persons bind themselves in favor of another, or others, or reciprocally, to the fulfillment of a prestation to give, to do, or not to do.32 There can be no contract unless the following requisites concur: (a) consent of the contracting parties; (b) object certain which is the subject matter of the contract; (c) cause of the obligation which is established.33 Contracts are perfected by mere consent, which is manifested by the meeting of the offer and the acceptance upon the thing and the cause which are to constitute the contract.34, Specifically, in the case of a contract of sale, required is the concurrence of three elements, to wit: (a) consent or meeting of the minds, that is, consent to transfer ownership in exchange for the price; (b) determinate subject matter, and (c) price certain in money or its equivalent.35 Such contract is born from the moment there is a meeting of minds upon the thing which is the object of the contract and upon the price.36, In general, contracts undergo three distinct stages, to wit: negotiation; perfection or birth; and consummation. Laws shall take effect after fifteen days following the completion of their publication in the Official Gazette, unless it is otherwise provided. Unauthorized contracts are governed by Article 1317 and the principles of agency in Title X of this Book.

Rossi informed respondents that their price offer was below their expectations but urged them to undertake a comprehensive review and analysis of the value and profit potentials of the Phimco shares, with the assurance that respondents would enjoy a certain priority although several parties had indicated their interest to buy the shares.6.           WHEREFORE, the appealed order is hereby set aside, and the case remanded to the Court of origin for trial and decision.
