Hi,

I just want to verify under Section 4... is it true that you cannot get a refund if less than 2 years of installments were paid?

Thanks.

The follow on:
This is my situation; i was a buyer of a property of a developer, the last payment i made was in Feb.24,2011 (this is for the full payment of the 20% DP) and the remaining 80% of the TCP is being processed for a Bank Loan Approval. Since awaiting for the approval from the bank, i wasn’t able to pay the supposed monthly Amortization under In House Financing daw (as it takes effect soon as the DP is fully paid pala) the problem is, i was not notified thru letter and or was sent any written computation of the said payment scheme. Then goes the notice from one of their agent that my request from the bank for a housing loan was not approved. So, I signify my intention thru the agent that i am selling the property to ease a possible burden upon me since knowing that In House Financing is killing those poor buyers/dreamers. But, 2nd buyers don’t come easily. I was just being promised by their agent/broker that they are looking for possible buyer. And i’m being referred to their other agent who say’s nothing but how much would be my take home percentage even demanded certain amount i should give. Time had pass and nothing i clear except the amount of penalty multiplying on my account. so i went to their office to beg that my case should be considered. And i was told verbally only that, if there is a potential buyer and if the requirements are of substance according to their guidelines or policy to accept, the accrued arrears and penalty would be waived. And so, i went for hunt on my own and approach a possible one since i heard he invests on properties. I showed him the property and adviced me to talk to his agent/processor who’s also connected to the same developer. So, we talk and told her my asking price. And so, she went to tell that buyer and he agreed. Provided, i will be the one to pay for the transfer fee. Then, since this buyer has bought properties from the developer already, he has all the credentials/documents submitted already in short they have his records. But, for so many reasons from the developer’s staff that he has a lot of properties with us.. we cannot process his papers or most likely will not be approved blah blah blah.. but, i insist that this is the buyer i am selling my property since he is willing to buy and we already have agreed on the price. And i was only told that, they are going to process for approval of their Heads. Countless days passed and i heard nothing until i went their to talk to their department head and i was told.. it really takes time and she promised a Nov. 15 2011 date. This was Oct. 28,2011 when she said. And Finally! Two Options was offered for the 2nd buyer. OPTION 1- the 80% remaining loanable amount be paid in 12 months @ Zero% interest, provided, an amount for the penalty must be paid. Otion 2 – arrears and penalty must be paid and the remaining loanable amount be paid in 24 months. So, I presented this to the new buyer. I, reiterated to him that Option 2 has the arrears to pay together with the penalty and i would still be asking the same price we had previously agreed. To his agent and my surprise, he opted for it. And again I reiterated that a big amount is added to that computation. But, he said it’s ok as long as it is 24 months to pay. Our agreement then was, i will be the one to pay for the transfer and the penalty. And so, i paid for the penalty and transfer fee and he paid for the arrears and his first monthly amortization. Then came the documents that it was already transferred to his name. But, maybe upon realization that one hundred thousand is quite a big amount as interest, he is now opting to pay it in 1 year (so he won’t have to pay that amount of interest) which is the Option 1 given and approved then by the developer’s staff. My question is; can R.A. 6552 Section 6 be applied for this case? Can the new buyers appeal for the reversal of that payment scheme from Option 2 to Option 1? I am and would be the most affected loser here since, if the payment scheme (Option 2) will continue its course the new buyer impose on me to either give back his money (which i do not have.. the very reason why i am selling the property) and/or take the remaining amount from the asking price minus that interest he is to pay. But this buyer is willing to pay the loanable amount in one year @ Zero % interest. Provided, the amount he has already paid will be deducted from the 80% loanable amount and the remaining be paid in eleven months. (which is the same as Option 1 then)
I hope that this would be understandable to you as this is quite lengthy and maybe in fractions of posts. Thank you very much and i hope to hear from you soon regarding this. God Bless You and this site.

i believe it can be applied. if the developer refuses, the remedy is to file a complaint at hlurb to compel them to accept the payment.

HLURB - Home Land Use and Regulatory Board. They are the governing body that issues a license to sell to developers. Without that license to sell, developers are not allowed to sell more than 9 pieces of land, each with their own TCT.

HLURB also regulates developers and they may revoke or suspend a developer's license to sell should the developer commit any violation with regards to their selling of property.

We acquired a lot on Feb 20, 2010. We started paying the 6monthly installment on downpayment on March 20, 2010 and started paying the monthly amortization on Sept. 20, 2010. However, we defaulted on our monthly amortization last Feb. 20, 2012. My question is, how many months do we still have to pay in order for us to qualify for a refund of 50% according to the Maceda Law - RA6552?

Nakapaghulog na po kasi kami ng 62,100 na downpayment sa loob ng anim ng buwan and 151,911.15 na monthly amortization for 17 months. We have been paying an amount of 8,935.95 on our monthly amortization. Ang basis po ba ng monthly installment sa binigay ninyong formula ay yong monthly amortization? As per my computation po kasi, we already paid a total amount of 214,011.15/8.935.95 = 23.95 months pa lang po kami. Tama po ba ang computation ko? Please help po para alam po namin kung ano ang dapat naming gawin para hindi ma-forfeit lahat ng binayad namin kasi malapit na pong mag due yong 60 days na grace period according to Maceda Law. Maraming salamat po.

Follow up question po ulit. Does 23.95 months means 23 months or round off na po ba yon sa 24 months?

that will be less than what is required. if down payment was in installment, that might be used as the divisor

14 50% refund under Maceda law on Sat Sep 29, 2012 12:20 pm

tindahanni_kulot


Arresto Menor
We already paid 20 months of equity amounting to total of P280K.
After watching Imbestigador about the issues of the houses built on the same village, we are thinking of cancelling due to lack of confidence to our developer.

We went to our developer's office and inquired about their refund policy. Unfortunately, they told us that they do not issue a refund.

We are thinking to pay pa din the remaining 4 months to make it 24 months and probably be entitled to maceda law. ? Pls note this is 24 months equity and not monthly amortization? Is the refund automatically given by the developer or we need to undergo litigation process or file a case first under HLURB?

Appreciate your advise.

What about my situation- the developer reopened my reserved property because my bank loan was denied. They sold the property without notifying me while continued to deposit my post dated checks until fully paid the downpayment for 24 mos. I have fully paid P595,000.00. They were very were very manipulative in their dealings with me. Firstly, Developer stated that my payments will be forfeited because the bank loan was denied. When I applied a loan direct to my bank (Phil. National Bank ) where I have pre -approval , developer did not cooperate with the bank’s requirements because PNB is not accredited bank of VV SOLIVEN REALTY CORP. When I secured a buyer in Canada, developer tried to convinced the buyer to get another area and pay additional THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND PESOS (P35,000.00) for the property has increased. I paid the amount in an attempt to expedite the transfer. Up until after 6mos, developer failed to give any transfer documents, instead attempted to receive more money from the new buyer. They stated that only 50% of my payment could be transfer as the buyer is not a my relative. My buyer was discouraged did not pursue to buy. I emailed HLURB and they summoned the developer twice but they tried to ignore it. Last month HLURB, advise me to submit verified complaint. I need help how to do it- I am willing to pay for the services. Anyone pls help me!

I think you should be pursuing the CTS before you decide to suspend payments. In case of delay of issuance there are still other documents to show that a contract exists. you run the risk of losing your payments by unilaterally suspending additional payments.

Thank You for the quick response.

Regarding sa CTS as per my knowledge after 3 months bnibgay ung CTS almost five months wala silang bnigay or any information na mddelay.

- Incident happen dun sa condo unit na some part is nasunog, hindi nila kmi inimformed na my ngyaring gnun. Ok lng b yon na hindi ipaalam smen as a buyer???
-Their providing wrong information sinasabi nila na nrrecived nila ung payment ko pero nkkareceived nmn aq ng incorrect invoice and after that Notice of collection.

Nagdiscontinue na ako sa pagbbayad and ngsend nrin aq ng cancellation and refund request kasi nwalan na ako ng gana at natakot na mas lumaki pa ung problema at hindi prin nila nggwan ng solusyon lagi kasi aqng ngeemail sknila for follow up kung anu ng ngyri sa complaint ko about sa mga hinuhulog ko. And walang kasiguradong sagot ang nakukuha q sknila.

Anu po sa tingin nyo ang iba png option pra sa concern ko? My rights pa po ba ako na na marefund q ung na invest qng pera.

if they do not agree to refund your payments, then you will have to file a complaint at HLURB to try to justify a refund.
