I would like to seek legal advise on my present problem:
We have lived for almost 13 years in a Community called AXXX Heights Settlers Association in KM 10 SXXX Davao City. Our location is at Lot 5 Block 5 AXXXX Heights Village KM. 10 XXXX Davao City.
AXXXX Heights is first a considered illegal squatters but later formed an association named "AXXXXXX Heights Settlers Association Inc.
The property occupied by AXXXXX Heights is formerly own by DUXXXXXN Family but the said property was mortgaged in a bank and foreclosed. Sometime in 2004, The association entered into an agreement with the local City Planning and Development Office to finance the transaction of distributing the title payable for 10 years (until 2014).
We occupied a lot for almost 13 years but the Association refuses to enlist as a member because they are interested on the property we occupied. Most of the officers owned more than 5 to 6 lots of which we know that it is a violation of the implementing rules and guidelines of the Housing Authority. My question is, why cant they just make us a member.? We are having a hard time paying for our property because we have not been listed as member and the City Planning cannot accommodate us because we are not in the list of members? and the end of the term is year 2014 is fast approaching.
Last September 8, 2010, the Association send us a letter offering to us the property for about P350,000.00..., we are shocked! and couldn't accept this price because we all know that our property is only priced at P55,000.00 at the City Planning office. Why is this so high price. Is this a sign of corruption in the Association? Our property is finance by government so it is expected to be in low price that can be afford by the local people or the masses but here they are..
Please give us legal advise to this matter. Please tell us what do to..
Your advise is highly and deeply appreciated.. God Bless and More Power...
