Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following terms would include the interests, benefits, and rights inherent in the Ownership of Real Estate?

    • A.

      Chattel

    • B.

      Real Property

    • C.

      Personal Property

    • D.

      Trade Fixtures

    Correct Answer
    B. Real Property
    Explanation
    Real Property refers to land and any structures or improvements attached to it. It includes the interests, benefits, and rights that come with owning real estate, such as the right to possess, use, and transfer the property. Chattel refers to personal property that is movable, while Personal Property refers to any property that is not real property. Trade Fixtures are items that are attached to a property for business purposes but can be removed by the tenant. Therefore, Real Property is the correct term that encompasses the interests, benefits, and rights inherent in the ownership of real estate.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which of the following would be considered to be real property?

    • A.

      A leasehold estate

    • B.

      Fixtures

    • C.

      Chattels

    • D.

      Trade Fixtures

    Correct Answer
    B. Fixtures
    Explanation
    Fixtures would be considered to be real property because they are items that are permanently attached to the land or property and cannot be easily removed without causing damage. They become part of the property and are therefore considered real property. Leasehold estate, chattels, and trade fixtures are not considered real property as they are either temporary rights to use the property, personal property, or items that can be easily removed without causing damage to the property.

  • 3. 

    The Servient estate in an easement appurtenant is the property

    • A.

      Owned by the landlord

    • B.

      On which the easement is placed

    • C.

      That benefits from the easement

    • D.

      Owned by the tenant

    Correct Answer
    B. On which the easement is placed
    Explanation
    In an easement appurtenant, the servient estate refers to the property on which the easement is placed. The easement is a right or privilege granted to the owner of another property, known as the dominant estate, to use a portion of the servient estate for a specific purpose. Therefore, the servient estate is the property that is burdened by the easement and allows the owner of the dominant estate to benefit from it.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Your uncle died without a will, and you inherited his real estate. The way in which you would acquire his estate is by:

    • A.

      Accession

    • B.

      Succession

    • C.

      Escheat

    • D.

      Avulsion

    Correct Answer
    B. Succession
    Explanation
    Succession is the correct answer because when someone dies without a will, their property is distributed to their heirs according to the laws of intestate succession. As the nephew/niece of the deceased, you would be considered an heir and would therefore inherit the real estate. Accession refers to the acquisition of property through the addition of improvements or natural growth, which is not applicable in this scenario. Escheat occurs when a person dies without any known heirs and their property reverts to the state, which is also not applicable here. Avulsion refers to the sudden removal of land by natural forces, which is unrelated to inheriting property.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    An earthquake tore away some of the land on your farm recently. This is an example of

    • A.

      Accession

    • B.

      Avulsion

    • C.

      Accretion

    • D.

      Erosion

    Correct Answer
    B. Avulsion
    Explanation
    Avulsion refers to the sudden and rapid removal of land by natural forces such as earthquakes, floods, or landslides. In this scenario, the earthquake caused a portion of the land on the farm to be torn away, which aligns with the definition of avulsion. This term is used specifically when there is a sudden and noticeable change in the boundaries of a property due to the forceful action of nature.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is physical characteristic of land?

    • A.

      Scarcity

    • B.

      Situs

    • C.

      Permanence of Investment

    • D.

      Immobility

    Correct Answer
    D. Immobility
    Explanation
    Immobility is a physical characteristic of land because it refers to the fact that land cannot be moved from one location to another. Unlike other assets or goods, land is fixed in its location and cannot be transported or relocated. This immobility is a fundamental feature of land that affects its value and use. It is an important consideration in real estate and urban planning, as the location of land plays a crucial role in its desirability and potential for development.

      Police Power

    • B.

      Escheat

    • C.

      Taxation

    • D.

      Eminent Domain

    Correct Answer
    D. Eminent Domain
    Explanation
    Eminent Domain is the correct answer because it refers to the government's power to take private property for public use, as long as just compensation is provided to the owner. In this scenario, Joy's land is being taken by the estate for the development of a new Highway, and she will be compensated for her land. This demonstrates the process of eminent domain, where the government exercises its authority to acquire private property for public purposes.

    Correct Answer
    B. Laches
    Explanation
    Laches refers to the unreasonable delay or negligence in asserting one's legal rights, which can result in the loss of those rights. In this case, Maria objected to the violation of a deed of restriction in her subdivision but waited one year before requesting a court injunction to enforce the restriction. The judge ruled that Maria had waited too long to request court action, indicating that she had been negligent in asserting her rights in a timely manner. As a result, the judge refused to issue the injunction, and Maria suffered a loss due to her delay in taking legal action.

    • B.

      Littoral Rights

    • C.

      Riparian Rights

    • D.

      Appropriation Rights

    Correct Answer

These rights allow the landowner to use the water for reasonable and beneficial purposes, such as irrigation or drinking water, as long as it does not interfere with the rights of other riparian owners. Riparian rights are based on the concept of natural flow and are common in common law jurisdictions. They are different from appropriation rights, which involve obtaining water rights through a permit or legal process. Equitable rights and littoral rights are not applicable in this context.

    • C.

      Apartment for rent

    Explanation
    Commercial Real Estate refers to properties that are used for business purposes, such as office buildings, retail spaces, and fast-food restaurants. These properties are typically bought, sold, or leased for commercial activities. However, apartments for rent are considered residential properties, as they are used for residential purposes rather than commercial activities.

    • B.

      150 liters/person/day

    • C.

      200 liters/person/day

    • D.

      250 liters/person/day

    • E.

      300 liters/person/day

    Correct Answer
    B. 150 liters/person/day
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 150 liters/person/day. This is the minimum water supply requirement needed to provide the average daily demand to all homeowners. It ensures that each person has enough water for their daily needs, including drinking, cooking, cleaning, and sanitation. Providing less than 150 liters/person/day may lead to water shortages and inadequate access to clean water for basic needs. On the other hand, supplying more than 150 liters/person/day may result in wastage of water resources. Therefore, 150 liters/person/day strikes a balance between meeting the demand and conserving water.

    Correct Answer
    D. Convince the buyer to buy from the project he is handling by giving all the advantages and selling points of the project.
    Explanation
    The salesperson should convince the buyer to buy from the project he is handling by highlighting all the advantages and selling points of the project. This is the best approach because the salesperson is employed by the Real Estate Broker who is accredited with John Doe Development Corporation. It would be unethical for the salesperson to affiliate with another broker or try to close the sale without obtaining proper authorization from the competitor Developer. Therefore, the salesperson should focus on promoting the project they are involved with and provide compelling reasons for the buyer to choose that particular project.

    • D.

      To arbitrate and resolve the dispute in the proper and ethical manner.

    Explanation
    The broker should not terminate salesperson B to avoid an argument. Instead, they should investigate who showed and presented the project to the buyer to determine the official agent. Terminating salesperson B without proper investigation would not be a fair resolution to the dispute and could potentially lead to further conflict.

It is called a balloon payment because it "inflates" the total amount due, effectively "liquidating" or paying off the entire obligation. This type of payment structure is often used in loans or mortgages where the borrower makes smaller regular payments throughout the term and then a larger lump sum payment at the end to fully satisfy the debt.

This means that the 20% requirement for socialized housing compliance will be calculated based on the total area of the main subdivision project, regardless of whether the area is saleable or not. This ensures that a fair and balanced approach is taken in providing socialized housing within the development, as it takes into account the overall size of the project rather than just the saleable area.

    • B.

      48 sq. m

    • C.

      36 sq. m

    • D.

      28 sq. m.

    Correct Answer
    A. 54 sq.m.
    Explanation
    Under the minimum design standards of BP 220, the minimum lot area for a Duplex/Single attached for economic housing is 54 sq.m. This means that any duplex or single attached unit intended for economic housing must have a minimum lot area of 54 sq.m.

A smaller lot area may not meet the minimum standards for economic housing, hence the correct answer is 54 sq.m.

This makes it a superior choice for lenders as it provides them with greater security and reduces the risk of not being fully repaid.

In a judicial foreclosure, the mortgagee must file a lawsuit and go through the court system to obtain a foreclosure order. This process allows for the property to be sold at a public auction to satisfy the outstanding debt.
