Vda. De Sta. Romana vs.

PCIB
118 SCRA 330

FACTS:

PCIB, administrator of the estate of the deceased C.N. Hodges filed for the recovery of a parcel of land
(Lot 1258-G) purchased by Ramon Sta. Romana from C.N. Hodges. Sheriff levied on the rights and
interests of Ramon over Lot 1258-F and improvements, also purchased from C.N. Hodges. Third party
claim was filed by Emilio Sta. Romana who claimed that Lot 1258-F and its improvements had been sold
to him.

RTC: annulled Contract and ordered return of possession of Lot 1258-G

CA affirmed decision and issued writ of execution to a sale and public auction of the said lot thru its
sheriff.

Ramon died intestate. Petitioner Socorro L. Vda. De Sta. Romana, surviving spouse, filed a motion to
quest the writ of execution and that the Sheriffs action be annulled. Respondent moved to dismiss on
ground of res judicata. CFI: granted motion to dismiss.

ISSUE: WON wife should get of property of husband who died when the land in question is used to
pay off debt

HELD: NO
-
As long as conjugal partnership subsists, there can be no share of husband or wife. Only when
conjugal partnership is dissolved between husband and wife can they claim it. Any levy on conjugal
partnership property to satisty money judgment against husband is null and void. The auction was made
before the conjugal property was dissolved thus wife cant claim it.
