Foreigner inherit condo owned by Filipino wife after she die

Answer

Yes. The foreigner can inherit the condo. That's one of the exemption under the Constitution. It's called "hereditary succession".

Just an advice. Those foreigners out there who have Filipino wife who owns a condo, please don't kill your wife to get their property, ok?
