It's hard to get demands from them, because they are in Canada,
BUT the property is in Philippines
I don't know if it's possible in Philippines, but at least it's possible to question in court who the property belong to, Try to BLOCK their possibility to sell the property by get a NOTE in the register that YOU claim the property. Perhaps someone here know better how. If not, then you can ask the property register, and the baranggay Captain.

Please read and understand carefully an article copy/pasted from The Manila Times dated June 17, 2014 by Atty Persida Acosta of the Public Attornney's Office.
Your case is similar in nature to this one and Atty Acosta expounded the subject of contract/s.
I suggest consult a lawyer regarding your case to be further enlightened.
Contracts that need notarization
June 17, 2014 9:16 pm
by Persida Acosta
I entered into an agreement with a friend regarding the sale of his Nike shoe collection. He sold it for a considerable amount of money, but seeing that it was a good deal, we shook hands on it and put it in writing. I signed the piece of paper, and he gave me a photocopy. We did not notarize the paper. A few days later, I found out that he sold his shoe collection to another buyer. When I confronted him about this, he said that I can’t sue him over our contract, because we did not notarize it, therefore it was not a contract. Is it true that a contract has to be notarized for it to be valid and binding?
A contract is defined by Article 1305 of the Civil Code as “a meeting of minds between two persons whereby one binds himself, with respect to the other, to give something or to render some service.” As long as there is an agreement or a meeting of minds regarding the obligation to give something or to render service, the law considers it as a contract. In order for the contract to be valid, it must be made with the consent of the contracting parties, there must be an object that is the subject of the contract, and a cause of the obligation (Article 1318, Civil Code). As long as the elements of consent, subject and cause are present, contracts are valid in whatever form they take. This means that contracts may either be verbal or written.
However, our law provides that, “[w]hen the law requires that a contract be in some form in order that it may be valid or enforceable, or that a contract be proved in a certain way, that requirement is absolute and indispensable” (Article 1356, Civil Code). Article 1358 enumerates the contracts that have to be set down in a public document. It states:
“Article 1358. The following must appear in a public document:
(1) Acts and contracts which have for their object the creation, transmission, modification or extinguishment of real rights over immovable property; sales of real property or of an interest therein are governed by Articles 1403, No. 2, and 1405;
(2) The cession, repudiation or renunciation of hereditary rights or of those of the conjugal partnership of gains;
(3) The power to administer property, or any other power which has for its object an act appearing or which should appear in a public document, or should prejudice a third person;
(4) The cession of actions or rights proceeding from an act appearing in a public document.
All other contracts where the amount involved exceeds Five hundred pesos must appear in writing, even a private one. But sales of goods, chattels or things in action are governed by Articles 1403, No. 2 and 1405. (128a)”
Notarization converts a private document into a public document (Vda. de Rosales vs. Ramos, A.C. No. 5645, July 2, 2002). Thus, in order for contracts enumerated in Article 1358 to be valid, they may be notarized. However, since the contract with your friend is merely a sale of shoes, which are movable property, then you do not need to have your contract notarized.
We hope that we were able to answer your query. Please be reminded that this advice is based solely on the facts that you have narrated and our appreciation of the same. Our opinion may vary when other facts are changed or elaborated.

and make it easier to prove if it become a vourt case.
1. Try to BLOCK in the register so they can't firstname.lastname@example.org wrote:Ano ang the best na gagawin namin laban sa kanila?
2. Prepare to file an estafa. I don't know if your type of case have to go to the baranggay captain before it can go to court, but I suggest you go there anyway, because perhaps he give you useable advice (and perhaps even judge in the case, but I don't believe so.)
Then file an estafa. (Tell the other part FIRST. Perhaps they give up then.)
If they try to sell anyway, it can become a FRAUD case. Then they risk to be taken by police when they go home to visit the Philippines...
You better HURRY make precoursions so they CAN'T SELL. (=Third party can see in the register it's claimed by you. Then third party can't claim they didn't know.)
When their sell possibility is blocked, then you aren't in a hurry, because you have to access to the property allready anyway And property tax demands will go to THEM But you will probably end up needing to pay the property tax anyway, because such depts need to be settled before transfer of owner document are approved by the government.
Have you paid WHOLE and can prove it?
If you can prove you have told them to transfer the documents, I would stop paying them any rent. Then you can live there for free (But as I wrote, you will probably end up paying the property taxes anyway WITH their punishment fee, so you can think of if you want to REGISTER you are the propert tax payer and start paying the property tax. I don't know what type of ownership your property have, but for SOME property types paying tax for the property long time can become enough to get the owner documents transfered to you later. (But then we are talking about at least 10 years.)

I don't understand Tagalog godd, so I'm not sure I understood what you email@example.com wrote:Wala pa din sila sagot, kailangan pa ba namin antayin ang sagot nila sa email namin?( nainform namin sila na di kami papayag sa gusto nilang mangyari sa pagsuli ng pera at babawasan pa ng 3,000.00 as rent). Do we need to follow up them?
/You need to hurry make so they can't sell to anyone else. =Try to get note in the register you claim it isn't theirs.
/You don't need to wait for their email answer. Best AFTER you have blocked in the register, but BEFORE you file an estafa, you can mail them you will file an estafa against them if they don't transfer the property to you. Then you can wait a SHORT while - 1 - 2 weeks - to give them chance to answer, because it's much harder to solve things through court, so better for them too, if they solve it to avoid they will risk jail... So it can be worth waiting a short time to give them chance to answer THAT mail. DON'T tell them what you have done to block, just tell them you have blocked so they can't sell, and will file an estafa against them, if they don't give you the needed documents soon.

Make sure the attorney HURRY to make the BLOCK, so the property can't be sold to anyone else without they know it's yours.
Still try the email telling you will file an estafa, if they don't transfer the documents soon. It's risk an attorney want to jump direct to file the estafa, because the attorney earn more by that while it's better for YOU if it can be solved WITHOUT going to court Court cases takes years normaly...
