I wish to seek some legal advise regarding my problem with our Home Owner's association officials and their methods of harrasment and forcing people to pay.
First, I would like to ask if there is a law that says we are obliged to pay Association Monthly Dues? And if yes, what would be the consequences of not paying it.
Second question. Who's responsibility is it to collect garbage and is it mandatory for us to pay our association dues before our Garbage can be collected?
What if we, by common sense, think that the Association Dues that are being paid are not and somehow being used in ways other than what is due the home owners and tenants like me.
What cases can we file against these officers who resort to harassment to force home owners /tenants to pay. Example if they shout at you and embarass you in front of everyone. and attempt to make physical threats.
And what if our Barangay officials are tolerating this even if it's unjust and irrational bec. these association officers are their "kakilala's" that when you try to complain you will be the one to get scolded?
Hoping you could find the time to respond to these questions.
Thanking you in advance.
