I'm an expat who just finished an assignment in Makati.
I scheduled all my belongings (furniture, household goods in general) to be picked up by the movers on a certain date but the building won't allow the movers to do so as they don't have a pass or permit. The landlord wants to hold my belongings until such time that we have settled our final payment.
The payment will come from our company. We have to wait for a few more days before the payment will be released. I'm offering a guarantee letter but landlord won't accept.
Is what he's doing even legal? The dispute is between the payment and not the furniture.
