One need only look to the first line of the document, “Declaration of Deed Restriction”; the declaration itself does not profess to be a grant deed, quitclaim deed, warranty deed or other similar deed document, which conveys in whole the property to a grantee.ARCHDIOCESE OF AGANA IS THE OWNER OF THE SEMINARY PROPERTY DESPITE NAYSAYERS. Jaqueline Terlaje, November 17, 2015
(Quoting a precedent): As so used ‘deed’ is synonymous with ‘conveyance’ but narrower in meaning than “transfer” or “grant.” A Deed has been described as an executed conveyance. It is not merely evidence of a grant of the property designated therein, but is the grant itself.
In the instant case, the Deed executed by Grantor, provides in its granting clause that “…Owner hereby covenants and declares that the Property is and shall be held, used, transferred, sold and conveyed, subject to the covenant and restrictions set forth herein…”
By examining the four corners of the subject Deed and applying the aforementioned rules of interpretation, the only conclusion that can be interpreted is that the Grantor (Apuron) intended to transfer a present interest in the subject property.
“…in the current Articles and By-laws of the RMS, the Archbishop is a member of the Board, but does not have the same ultimate powers (as Archbishop of Agana). He is just one of six votes. This situation, should the Archdiocese transfer the property and building and facilities in Yona to RMS, could appear to make the transfer an alienation of property because the Archbishop relinquishes ultimate control of the asset. In order to keep it an Archdiocesan asset, Ed (Terlaje, Legal Counsel) has recommended that the RMS Articles and By-laws would need to be amended to allow the Archbishop ultimate control of RMS and its assets. However, after several meetings, the RMS incorporators are hesitant to do so, but have asked that the assets be deeded to RMS without modification.
