• Sergs Products and PCI entered into a chattel mortgage that involves machineries for a chocolate-making business.
  • When Sergs defaulted, PCI filed a writ of replevin.
  • Sergs questioned that a writ of replevin is not applicable as a remedy since the machineries are real property.
  • PCI contended that machineries and equipment are personal properties.


  • Whether or not the machinery and equipment became real properties by virtue of immobilization.


  • Under normal circumstances, machinery and equipment can be considered real property through immobilization. But in this case, the presence of a chattel mortgage presupposes that both parties agreed to consider it as personal property.
