I am a resident in Muntinlupa City. I went to our barangay (putatan) to secure a barangay clearance for local employment. They didn't want to give me the clearance because I need to secure a homeowners clearance first from our subdivision. The homeowners don't want to give me a clearance because they said that we have not paid the balance of our monthly dues. The said balance of almost 8,000 pesos is from the previous resident of our current house. Do i get the burden of not having a barangay clearance because of unpaid debt of the previous resident of our house? Not to mention that I am not the owner but just a relative of the owner. They said that all household members from our address cannot get a clearance because of the said unpaid dues. Does the barangay have the right not to give clearance? How can we complete the requirements in securing a job?
Thank you for reading my queries and hoping for a quick response.
Again, thank you!
