Transcript of Pure and Conditional Obligation

Art. 1179. Every obligation whose performance does not depend upon a future or uncertain event, or upon a past event unknown to the parties, is demandable at once.
Art. 1180. When the debtor binds himself to pay when his means permit him to do so, the obligation shall be deemed to be one with a period, subject to the provisions of Article 1197.
Conditional Obligation
Pure and Conditional Obligation
Art.1181. In conditional obligations, the acquisition of rights, as well as extinguishment or loss of those already acquired, shall depend upon the happening of the event which constitutes the condition.
Every obligation which contain a resolutory condition shall also be demandable, without prejudice to the effects of the happening of the event. (1113)
Pure Obligation
• A obliges himself to pay B ₱1,000.00
• C binds himself to pay D ₱500 upon demand of D.

X binds herself to give Y a gold wrist watch if Y will get married on December 31, 2014.
Gabriel binds himself to deliver a determinate car to Ben if the latter will marry Coleen.
Gabriel binds himself to lend his only car to Ben until the latter passes the CPA examinations.
• Obligations are immediately demandable in the following instances:
1.) When it is pure

2.) When the obligation is subject to a resolutory condition and period.
• When duration of period depends upon the will of debtor:
“little by little”, “as soon as possible” , “at anytime I have the money” , “in partial payments”
• If the debtor and creditor cannot agree as to specific time for payment, the Court shall fix the same on the application of either party.
Illustrative Problem:
Toni secured a loan from Alex in the amount of ₱5000. Alex promised that she would pay the loan “as soon as possible.” Three years had lapsed and yet Toni was not able to collect from Alex. What is the remedy available for Toni?
1. Acquisition of rights:
 In suspensive condition, the acquisition of rights by creditor depends upon the happening of the condition.
 If suspensive condition does not take place (certain that it will not be fulfilled), the parties would stand as if the conditional obligation had never existed.
2. Loss of rights already acquired:
Mr. Santos, in his last will and testament gave some property to his daughter provided that he will die within 2 years. If Mr. Santos died after 2 years, the situation would be the same as if no provision was made by Mr. Santos in his will.
 In resolutory condition, the happening of condition extinguishes the rights already acquired.
X binds himself to support Y until Y graduates from college. The right already acquired by Y (right to receive support) shall be extinguished once he graduated from college.
Art.1182. When the fulfillment of the condition depends upon the sole will of the debtor, the conditional obligation shall be void. If it depends upon chance or upon will of a third person, the obligation shall take effect in conformity with the provisions of this Code. (1115)
