would like to seek your advise and at the same time help me in the request for waiver of transfer fees on our client.
THE PROJECT : Condominium in Q.C.
Expected delivery date 2016
STATUS : PRE-SELLING STAGE
NOT SURE IF WITH PERMIT OR
License to Sell
(we started selling 4 months ago)
scenario 1: mr. B reserved a unit at Pre-selling Condominium...last week of november promise to reserved another unit plus parking slot the following week.
december 02, returned and made another reservation plus parking slot.
and referred his mother-in-law (Mrs. C) and another relative (Mrs. D),
which both reserved each plus parking slots.
december 13, the daughter of Mrs. C (Mrs. M) with his daughter (Ms. F)
reserved another unit under the name of Ms. F (student)
the following week, they came to our showroom and requested through our Sales Director that the
following be transferred:
unit of Mrs. C unit 415 plus 2nd level parking slot 24 be transferred to Ms. F
Unit 414 of Mrs. D change to 836
unit 2103 reserved by Ms. be refunded.
formal letter of transfer of unit of the three were filed and received by Administration Dept January 09,
staff who received the letter told us, for approval.
the following week, the staff informed us transferred will be approved upon paying the transfer fees, which
is P10,000.00 (2 units plus parking; 10,000 x 3 = 30,000).
upon informing the buyers, they threatened to back-out and have full refund of their reservation fees.
us, being the sellers, would like to save the account, since this will give us income (commission) after
9 months of downpayment.
so, is there any Real Estate Law that will compel the developer to waive the transfer fees on our buyer?
since the project is still on a pre-selling stage (no excavation of whatsover) and the government permits--
HLURB, DENR, LLDA, Municipal Hall, Barangay etc.etc.etc., still is question mark if na-issued na.
can we sight that since they are related with each other, or this permits as the basis of our waiver of transfer fees?
