BUSINESSMAN Joe E. Ayuyu has sued Edward M. Cepeda in Superior Court over the ownership of a 24,766-square-meter land in San Vicente.

Ayuyu, who is represented by attorney Michael W. Dotts, wants the court to issue an order declaring him the owner in fee simple absolute of the property.

An heir of Luis Manibusan Cepeda, Edward Cepeda has also claimed an interest in the property.

On Oct. 18, 1983, the Marianas Public Land Corporation deeded the property to Luis M. Cepeda and Guadalupe M. Cepeda. The couple had occupied the property since July 1975 and made improvements to it.

In 2000, Luis M. Cepeda passed away.

“By operation of law,” Dotts said, Luis Cepeda’s wife, Guadalupe Cepeda, “became the sole owner of the property.”

Dotts said, on Nov. 4, 2001, Guadalupe Cepeda gave the property to her son, Benjamin Cepeda, along with other properties through a deed of gift.

On. Feb. 9, 2006, Benjamin Cepeda conveyed the property to Jose C. Ayuyu by warranty deed.

The warranty deed was recorded with the Commonwealth Recorder’s Office on Feb. 17, 2006.

On Dec. 6, 2008, Jose C. Ayuyu and Marcia E. Ayuyu conveyed the property to their son, Jose E. Ayuyu Jr. by deed of gift.

But Edward Cepeda, the son of Luis and Guadalupe, on multiple occasions had come to the San Vicente property and claimed that it was his.

According to the lawsuit, Edward Cepeda and any other heirs of Luis M. Cepeda have no right or title or interest in the property.

Dotts asked the court to declare his client the owner and that the defendant has no claim on the property.
