  2. Hi,

    Do you have a sample waiver of rights? My mom is married to a foreigner and she has properties before their marriage. Me and my siblings want to transfer the properties to me. Can we do that by letting my mom sign a waiver of rights? or Can we just have something like a Deed of Donation or Deed of Sale?

    Thanks and hoping for your immediate response.

  3. My spouse’s family wants me to sign such a document. I am refusing because as a foreigner I am not subject to the laws of the Philippines nor am I a party to the property sale. Why should I sign away my rights or the rights of our children under the inheritance laws of the Philippines or the country we live in? I assume I have the right to refuse to sign such a document, have I not?

  6. Hi, do you have a sample for a waiver of share capital for the corporation? the situation is, the other corporates have not existed after 2 months the corporation established last 2010 and now they’re back and want to get their share capital. We have agreed that we make a waiver that they will just wait until such the corporation will generate income, and waive their rights and responsibility in our corporation since they were replaced and their rights and responsibility were assumed by other investors.

  7. Hi,
    My Boss w/c is 71 year old transferred real properties to his 4 kids through Deed of Sale. Spouses of his 4 kids execute an affidavit of waiver that the funds used to bought properties was personal fund of the 4kids and waived their rights from it. My question was, is the waiver valid? please elaborate to further understanding. thanks
