Hi Dior_2005, i received this message from a concerned buyer at one of their projects.
"I just stumbled into your account while researching New San Jose Builders Inc. I bought a pre-selling unit from them at their Victoria de Makati project last July 2009, with a promised turnover date of 2011. Well it's now 2012, and their buildings are no where near finished. I got a copy of their license to sell, dated July 2010, which says turnover will be December 2013. But looking at the current status of the construction, it is unrealistic to believe that they can finish the project by that time."
I know that there is no perfect company, they all have problems one way or another. But the situation that we have with VS2 is different. They have not started construction at all.
With a well established developer who have finished 2 projects VIctoria Station 1 and Victoria De Manila, they should know better not to deceive their clients into purchasing something that they cannot deliver on time. Heck, all their competitors are promoting EARLY turnover dates. Is SMDC a seasoned developer? I dont think so, but look at their SMDC Lights, construction is well on its way.
If you want to confirm that they are telling the truth, go to HLURB and find out if they indeed changed their planned layouts. Why change it? of course their office would tell u stories so that u will continue paying them.
Just my opinion.
