only, NOT all caps
Jose Curminas filed a petition praying that Francisco Jarque be declared insolvent; this was granted.
Commented [FIR2]: 3 single spaces before facts
Jarque’s properties were then assigned to Curminas. The problem arose when Judge Hontiveros declined to
foreclose the mortgage and instead ruled that they were defective, because they did not have Affidavits of
Good Faith.

Issue: Whether or not the Chattel Mortgage Law governs vessels.

Ruling: Yes. Personal property includes vessels, thus, they are subject to the provisions of the Chattel
Mortgage Law. The Chattel Mortgage Law provides that absence of an Affidavit of Good Faith makes the
mortgage unenforceable against the creditors and subsequent encumbrance.

The Court also noted that although vessels are personal property, they partake to a certain extent of
the nature and conditions of Real property because of their value and importance in the world of commerce. Commented [FIR3]: Facts = bold letters, NOT all caps.
