I had an encounter with a lessor demanding a 3 month deposit for their unit and had a bit of an argument with her. I said that is illegal, the maximum deposit allowable deposit is 2 months. Only to find out that the act expired 3 months ago. She said they had this policy for years now, but now that the act is expired I can't even complain.
I read an article on GMA news that the updated law would be implemented retroactively effective January 1, 2009 but I can't confirm if this is true. If this is true where should I file a complaint? I hate it when Filipinos take advantage of other Filipinos. I wan't to do something to get them to straighten up their act.
