287 SCRA 18


Catalina was the grantee of the Monserrat estate. She had to leave for Canada to become a permanent resident therein and she appointed Espanol to be her attorney-in-fact to fix the requirements needed. Failing to accomplish what he ought to do, Catalina appointed Lagazo as her new attorney-in-fact. The grant was subsequently given and later, the land was donated to Lagazo. Lagazo then sought to remove Cabanlit from the property. The latter claims ownership over the land by virtue of a deed of sale executed in favor of him by Espanol.


The donation is simple and pure. There is no showing of any acceptance from Lagazo and thus, there has been no perfected donation.
