Rental Law in the Philippines 2020

Hi, I need your advice regarding our rental status. We have been renting the house for almost two years now. We discovered that the house is not the marital property of the couple renting the house – it was the woman who inherited it from her parents. We were a good payer, but we found that whenever there is a problem with the property or something needs to be repaired/repaired, the husband does nothing unless his wife tells him. Just recently, the man and I had a verbal argument. It was after 9am when I knocked on their door to report that the sink was broken (the same one they fixed a few months ago). I asked if there was anyone who could fix it (since I don`t know anyone in the village either). He said, “THE OWNER IS STILL SLEEPING. I told him we didn`t need to wake his wife, but I just needed someone to help us with the sink (my husband was at work). He did not give in to my request.

I told her that since she`s sleeping and he can`t make a decision as a husband, I`m just going to find my way to ask someone to fix the sink and deduct it from the rent. With this, he got angry and said that we could not decide for ourselves because THE OWNER is asleep. I stopped there. A month later, it`s time to collect the rent. He (the husband) sent someone to collect the rent. I asked for a receipt; the husband made a letter with his signature on it, in which he collected the rent. I got angry and said I thought he kept telling me in front of me that HE WAS NOT THE OWNER when we had problems with the sink. Now that it`s time to collect the rent, he suddenly becomes the landlord. Is it legal? Can the husband really collect for his wife`s rental property? If so, what if the husband originally claims that he is not the owner? Please advise, I really need help! Thank you very much and more power! Hello, I just want to know what the legal action is on my issue right now. The apartment I wanted to rent has a 1 month prepayment and a 2 month deposit rule before moving in.

Since I don`t really have any cash at the moment, I only gave 2 months of deposit and promised that I would send the money after 2 days. But after 1 day, I decided not to rent the house because it was really small. We haven`t really signed the contract yet because we haven`t moved yet. Our relocation schedule is after 2 days. The secretary never told me that the deposit was non-refundable. When I asked for the money, the secretary told me that the money was non-refundable and that we could no longer get it. Please advise on the law under Philippine laws for rental? The money is 15,000 php. Pls.

Pls. Thank you for your time @ Elaine, here is the answer / section 3. Monthly rent and maximum increase. – As of January 1, 2002 and for a period of three (3) years thereafter, ending on December 31, 2004, the monthly rents of all dwellings in the National Capital Region and other highly urbanized cities do not exceed seven thousand five hundred pesos (7,500.00 pesos) and the monthly rents of all dwellings do not exceed four thousand pesos (P4, 000.00) may not be increased annually by the owner by more than ten percent (10%) without prejudice to existing contracts. What is the allowed increase in the rent of the house of Php 7,500.00 after one year? The house is in the NCR. If I want to use the house for personal use after the one-year contract expires, how will I notify the owner? Does it have to be written and the document notarized? How long can I ask them to leave their premises? Thank you Answer: P990.00, because the rent can be increased by a maximum of 11% (it is P9,000 x 11% = P990.00). This means that the new rental price for next year can be increased to a maximum of P9,990 per month (i.e. P9,000 initial rent + increase P990). In light of the growing number of confirmed cases posing serious threats and long-term negative effects on the economy and security, Presidential Proclamation No. 922, p. 2020, which declared a nationwide public health emergency, was issued. Republic Act (RA) No.

11469, or the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, was later signed into law to give the president additional powers to take temporary emergency measures to respond to the crisis. Considering that many tenants live from paycheck to paycheck and that jobs and businesses are disrupted due to community quarantine, one of the economic facilitations is the granting of residential and commercial rental fees. Polite formulas! I am in the situation like, our contract was 2 years from June 1, 2009, 15k monthly specified in the contract 1mo deposit, 1 month rent and 12 months after checks dated as one year of rent. Suddenly, the new owner arrived at our home on June 28, 2010 and said orally that we had to leave the premises on June 30, 2010 because they owned it now. We have no idea that the previous owner we signed sold the property to our neighbor. Can the new owner immediately chase us away like this? what action can we do with the former owners. Mc 20-12 contains guidelines for the granting of commercial rents which, like residential buildings, prescribe a minimum grace period of 30 days without incurring penalties. This would include the leasing of land, offices, buildings, centres, shops, facilities and other immovable property mainly used for commercial purposes, which means that the main purpose of the activities held in that property is to make a profit. Originally, this concession only applied to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), but MC 20-31 extended it to sectors that are not allowed to operate during the ECQ, MECQ and GCQ. AR 9653 was approved in 2009 and was implemented on September 31, 2009. December 2013. Since then, HUDCC has expanded the provisions of the law – and its latest extension is from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2020.

I`m not going to be here, I`m going to have to live here, but I`m going to have some repairs here, but I`m sure we`ll have to do a good job. .
