The police very well knows our landlord's "Ugali" of having previous complaints from his tenants. It turns out some tenants have complained of "pananakot" although there was no actual proof found.
The police advised us to just leave the place, good thing we didn't sing a contract. The problem now is that when we got to the point of talking about the deposit, the landlord initially refused and later on agreed to return 1 month deposit (which was actually 2-month) provided that a new tenant occupies the unit. We did not agree and a written document was made (by them)stating that the 1-month deposit will be paid on AUG 15. 2 months have passed and no feedback from them yet. We tried calling them but the number isn't working.
What can we do about thiS? It seems malakas po ang landlord sa pulis at sa barangay, all of them hesitant to help us.
