I am the owner of a condo unit and I rented it out to an Austrian national with Filipina girlfriend. I have a notarized rental contract signed by the Austrian dated Dec 31, 2010. After 3 months of stay, the leasee failed to pay and eviction from the premises followed. A total of P47,000 was left unpaid for Meralco, rental and damages to furniture and fixtures. As collateral security supported with promissory note, the leasee left behind hi original passport. As such, I trusted in his promise that he will return and pay within 10 days. However, I did not receive any payments and the Leasee never communicated.
I called and wrote to the Austrian embassy in Makati to inform them of the estafa case I filed against the Austrian and his filipina girlfriend. In the 2 court hearings for estafa, the respondents never showed up.
I am praying for the case resolution so I can proceed to file a hold departure order. Please advise the merits of my case and my request for HDO against both respondents.
