Allegations regarding the collection of rentals without proper accounting, sale of common properties without the husbands consent and misappropriation of the proceeds thereof, are factual issues which have to be addressed in order to determine with certainty the fair and reasonable division and distribution of properties due to each party. 2) The extent of properties due to respondent is not yet discernible without further presentation of evidence on the incidental matters he had previously raised before the RTC. Since the RTC resolved these matters in its Orders dated November 28, 2003 and April 12, 2004, disregarding its previous order calling for the reception of evidence, said orders became final orders as it finally disposes of the issues concerning the partition of the parties common properties. As such, it may be appealed by the aggrieved party to the Court of Appeals via ordinary appeal. DISPOSITION CA decision AFFIRMED Remanded to RTC for reception of evidence
