1 House Rent Issue on Tue Mar 12, 2013 5:12 pm

Mrs. A.


Arresto Menor
Good Day! Last November 2012, my husband and I rented a 2 bedroom house at Cubao area. Since wala naman kaming balak magtagal, kinausap namin ang may-ari na kung pwede ay wala ng contract of lease dahil 6-8 months lang naman kami mag stay. Nung una ay nag offer sya ng 21,000 per month na rent, kaso sinabi namin na di namin iyon kaya at kung titignan noon ang bahay ay maraming kailangan i-repair. So nagkasundo kami na ipapaayos namin ang dapat ipaayos at magiging 16,000 per month ang rent. Nagbigay kami ng 1 month deposit at advance ang payment namin.

Just lastweek, kinausap nya kami at sinabi saming mag increase sya ng rent, from 16,000 to 18,500 effectively immediately.. Hindi kami pumayag at kinausap sya na kung hindi nya babawiin ay aalis na lamang kami. So, in short, naghanap na kami ng ibang mauupahan. Yesterday, kinausap namin sya na hanggang March 30,2013 nlng kami, bilang nakabayad na kami hanggang March 15. at ang 1 month deposit namin ang i-aaply sa half-month stay namin, kung ano man ang matira, yun nlng ang pang settle sa meralco at water bills. ngunit, di sya pumayag, ang gusto nya ay mag stay pa kami ng one month dahil short notice daw plus magbayad uli kami ng 1 month rent of 18,000 [discounted of 500] para until April 15, 2013 kami.

ang tanong ko lamang po ay, 1) tama po ba na mag increase sya ng rent samin within 4 months of stay palang. 2) may right po ba syang i-require kami mag stay for another month at magbayad ng P18,000? 3) ayaw po nya ipagamit ang one month deposit namin dahil sabi nya, pang settle daw po iyon ng meralco ant water bill na maiiwan namin [which i doubt na hindi naman aabot ng 4k].

sana po matulungan nyo ako. salamat

Mrs. A
