Hey Balikbayan,

First this is not your land and never will be. No foreigner can own land there. Your wife can own it. What is wrong with your brother in law cutting down some trees? Are they rare ones? I be scared to marry a filipino and then build a house on her land right away.

Just my feelings.

Hey Greenstreak
First of all, I know a foreigner can not own land here, and the issues with trees are not that they are rare, it's the shade they provide during hot season, and one if the trees is near our house providing shade to our bedroom, and to the bedroom of Lola. Also the trees are not anywhere near the location of the site where he wants to build, he just wants a driveway that's a straight shot to, and I quote " to my house", instead of using the natural path we've been using for years.

If your Father In-law's land was "titled" and subsequently legally partitioned and surveyed, the survey drawings "should" indicate the easements (right of way) for each of the 3 portioned lots.

Read:
The Boundary Agreement Process (BAP) and the Parcel Information Sheet (PIS)
Section 85.
b. Sketching Instructions
3. All easements must be shown, including dimensions;
https://server2.denr.gov.ph/uploads/...010-13_111.pdf

I'm assuming the land is other than titled and was divided 3 ways. (This rock to that tree).

Read:

Title III. - CO-OWNERSHIP
Articles. 484 and onwards.
BOOK II (FULL TEXT) : CIVIL CODE OF THE PHILIPPINES : CHAN ROBLES VIRTUAL LAW LIBRARY

Your easement issue with your future brother in-law is likely the least of your issues you may face.

I'm aware of situations where 1 co-owner pawned their portion, lost it and it the new owners created chaos as a new co-owner.

To many "what if's" in this scenario. Particularly "what if" the 3rd sister marries a local, he uses their 3rd of co-ownership as collateral for a loan for a trike, gambling debt, etc. then loses it.

Very sad Balikbayan that you have to battle another expat and it sounds like he's either off his rocker or his wife is part of the problem I can't see how his wife would allow him to run his mouth like that and to run a road to your house.

I wish you well and I know what you deal with I've had my own issues so many I can't list except for one and that is the woman seems to enjoy the fighting and they only add fuel to the fire so to speak without making sense of nonsense "Kids". Oh wait.... I'll list one my Internet or DSL line was sliced to ribbons and I just got it repaired today and all because they got angry with my wife for getting after them on a property issue and other things.

For sure the shade is needed here unless the brother-in-law is blessed with money and is willing to run AC 24/7, out of curiosity how old is he? I've saved so much money by planting trees before that the in-laws would cut them down.
