Stages in the Expropriation Process

1. The first stage is the determination of the authority of the plaintiff to expropriate. This determination includes an inquiry into the property of the expropriation - its necessity and the public purpose.

The first stage will end in the issuance of an order of expropriation if the court finds for the plaintiff or in the dismissal of the complaint if it finds otherwise.

2. The second stage is the determination of just compensation through the court-appointed commissioners. (National Power Corporation vs. Joson, 206 SCRA 520; MERALCO vs. Pineda, 206 SCRA 196; Municipality of Binan vs. Garcia, 180 SCRA 576)
