SIBAL V. VALDEZ
50 PHIL 512
The Deputy Sheriff, through a writ of execution, attached the personal properties of Sibal, including the sugar cane in question in the 7 parcels of land described in a complaint. The personal properties were then sold in public auction, including the sugar canes. Included also in those attached were real properties wherein 8 out of the 11 parcels of land, house and camarin were bought by Valdez through the public auction. He also bought the sugar cane in question.
Generally, sugar cane comes under the classification of “ungathered products” under real properties in the CC. However, under certain conditions, it may be considered as personal property. For purposes of attachment and execution, as well as for the purposes of the Chattel Mortgage Law, ungathered products have the nature of personal property.
