STATEMENT OF THE CASE

Art. 1159 of the Civil Code provides that; Obligations arising from contracts have the force of law between the contracting parties and should be complied with in good faith. On January 10, 2012, Defendant contracted the services of Plaintiff for the supply and installation of aluminum and tinted glass windows for a total consideration of ONE MILLION PESOS (P1,000,000.00). Defendant, upon signing of the contract, paid the amount of SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND PESOS (P600,000.00) which is the agreed partial payment, the balance to be paid upon full delivery of the supplies and complete installation of the window glasses; Plaintiff completely delivered and completed the installation of the aluminum and tinted glass windows within the stipulated time frame Due to insufficiency of funds, the defendant executed a Promissory Note dated March 10, 2012.

Defendant however defaulted to pay on the date the defendant promised to pay which is within 5 days from the execution of the promissory note; Plaintiff, upon default of payment, sent a demand letter asking the Defendant to make good his promise to pay the balance amounting to FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND PESOS (P400,000.00). Despite such written demand, Defendant still failed to pay thereby prompting the Plaintiff to bring the matter before the Lupong Tagapamayapa; Before the Lupong Tagapamayapa, both parties executed an agreement to the effect that the Defendant again promised to pay the obligation; Despite such agreement, Defendant still failed to make good his promise to pay, thus prompting Plaintiff to secure a Certificate to File Action.
