Property acquired after making last will

As a general rule, all property rights which have accrued to the hereditary estate since the opening of succession are transmitted to the heirs. In other words, from the moment of death of the decedent or testator, to the estate shall pertain all of his property rights.

As an exception, property acquired after the making of a will shall not pass to the heirs unless it should expressly appear in the will that such was the intention of the testator. Otherwise put, the testator is presumed to have no intention of including after-acquired (after making the will) property in those he chooses to dispose of by will.

Article 793. Property acquired after the making of a will shall only pass thereby, as if the testator had possessed it at the time of making the will, should it expressly appear by the will that such was his intention. (Civil Code of the Philippines)
