I rented an apartment last Oct 6,2016. term for 1 yr. the provision say ,The monthly rent shall be 8500 Php to be paid by the Lessee on or before the 8th day of each and every month plus a surcharge of Ten Pesos per day for payment of rentals made after 5thday of the month due. it is expressly agreed that the payment of the rental herein stipulated shall be made without the necessity of express demand and without delay on any ground what so ever. no. 3 provision say: the lessee agrees to pay the amount of 25,500 as deposit which shall answer for any rental in arrear, water bill,electric bill annd/or damages (hole in wall, broken glass window and broken door)which the Lessee shalll settle at the termination of this contract. my question is Kailangan ko pa po ba mag pay ng surcharge even mayroon po akong deposit until on the 8 of this month?

Yes. The rentals in arrears (if any) refers to any unpaid rentals at the time of the termination of the contract.
