Classification of conditions

According to Manresa, a condition is any uncertain event which wields an influence on a legal relation.[1] It is also defined by De Leon as "a future and uncertain event, upon the happening of which, the effectivity or extinguishment of an obligation (or rights) subject to it depends."[2] The following are the various classifications of conditions:

(1) Suspensive and resolutory;

(2) Potestative, casual and mixed;

(3) Impossible and possible;

(4) Positive and negative;

(5) Divisible and indivisible;

(6) Conjunctive and alternative; and

(7) Express and implied.
