1 withdrawn purchase of condo unit on Tue Jun 12, 2012 10:14 am


Arresto Menor
Hi good morning! Less than a year ago i was convinced to get a condo unit. After several months of paying the DP, I found out that you need to pay 30% of the total selling price before you can move in. I was misinformed, the agent said you only need to pay 12% before you can move in. It would take another 2 years for me to complete the move-in fee. Then I decided to withdraw my purchase. I didn't sign any documents except for the reservation fee which is not refundable. I asked them to cancel my purchase and they said I would get a refund. I already paid P75,000 and after the computation it turns out that I wouldn't get any money back and I still owe them. They deducted the reservation fee (10,000), cancellation fee of 15% ( 11,160), handling fee of 20,000, and broker's fee of 36,625. But what if you didn't cancel it, instead you were not approved by the bank or pag-ibig? Is it legal for them to take your money?

thanks, hope you can answer my question

your remedy is to file a complaint in hlurb or to continue with the purchase.
