Supreme Transliner, Inc. vs BPI Family Savings Bank, Inc.

FACTS: Supreme Transliner took out a loan from respondent but was unable to pay the same. The respondent bank extrajudicially foreclosed the collateral and, before the expiration of the one (1) year redemption period, the mortgagors notified the bank of its intention to redeem the property.

ISSUE: Whether or not the mortgagee-bank is liable to pay the capital gains tax upon the execution of the certificate of sale and before the expiry of the redemption period

RULING: No. It is clear that in foreclosure sale there is no actual transfer of the mortgaged real property until after the expiration of the one-year redemption period and title is consolidated in the name of the mortgagee in case of non-redemption. This is because before the period expires, there is yet no transfer of title and no profit or gain is realized by the mortgagor.
