The reasons they stated were:
1. That they THOUGHT we availed of the 15 months extended payment which we were never offered in the first place.
2. They declared FORCE MAJEURE due to lack of equiptment which as far as we know, there hasn't been any shortage in the Philippines the past year.
We have also encountered several problems with them such as:
1. They processed all our documents for bank financing too late resulting to our application being only partly approved so we had to pay the loan difference of 700+K which they rushed us into paying (we paid it on our 13th month of equity) when instead it could have earned interest in time deposit.
2. Since we thought we would be moving in by January (giving us enough time to renovate the unit) we supposedly ended our contract in the house we are renting until December, but bcos of their delay we had to extend our rent when we could have saved on that.
3. We made a simple request of having one partition of the house removed even before it was constructed which they declined stating the bank does not approve but we contacted the bank and they said they approved it. So, it would mean we would have to have it removed, thus additional expense.
4. No one communicated with us properly. We were transferred from one dept to another and they would take days or even weeks to respond to us.
Could we be eligible to demand the following:
1. To claim for whatever interest the 700K could have earned at the bank in interest if we hadn't removed it from time deposit?
2. The money that we had been paying in rent due to their delay?
3. For our request (wall partition) to be granted?
4. Other damages such as: emotional damages it has brought upon us, fees for lawyers etc.?
If so, what process do we go about?
Thank you for your help.
