I own a house and lot in Quezon city which I leased to a friend for Php 10,000/month. Contract of lease was put to writing for 5 years starting January 1, 2010 up to December 31, 2015. Rentals has not been paid since January 1, 2011. Last demand was made April 29, 2012. Since he is a friend, i let him stay. Worst, he has not paid the water bills, telephone and electricity bills, so i have to pay for it to prevent cutting-off of services. I paid the bills amounting to Php 500,000.00. Now he is saying my title is void. What are the possible remedy?
I am hoping that you could also extend your professional help even to a student like me. Although i have my own thoughts about the assignment, I would be more comfortable if I could get an opinion from a practitioner. Your help will be very much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance!
