My family and i have been renting an apartment in Sampaloc for more than 40 years now. Our neighborhood which consist of more or less 20 families made an appeal that the property be awarded or sold to us since we have tenants for a long time. Unfortunately we never got any answer until a new owner proclaimed that he brought the property and been collecting rents from us. Majority of the people didnt believe he's the new owner but some of us check if this is true. We found out he is the owner but the property is now mortgaged and might be foreclose. We have not been paying our rent but the owner is harassing us to pay him. What should we do? Do we have to pay him rent? Should we move to a different place? Or should we wait until our pledge be heard?
