Of landlord/s and landlady from hell
« on: February 14, 2012, 04:20:13 PM »
Hi Mga GT Peeps,

I don't know if may topic ng ganito dito. Pakidelete na lang po gt mods.

Would like to ask sana kung naka-experience sa inyo ng may pagka-weirdo, martial-law ruling mga landlord/landlady nyo? In short, landlady from hell.

Ganito kasi iyun, kami ng family ko kakamove-in lang namin at ika-9th day pa lang namin sa bagong apartment. 6 of us (5 adults and 1 kid na 4 year old) ang tenant ng house. Nung una, super accommodating pa itong si Madam. A 76yr old former HR Manager (daw) na landlady.

Nakapag-move in na kami in two weeks na nakapagseal na kami ng landlady.  Kinabukasan nagdown na kami ng 1 month advance and 2 months deposit. Resibo lang binigay  nya at walang contract.

Me and my Dad asked  her the rules, like visitors ganyan. Sabi nya ok lang naman as long as hindi maingay. The apartment is a 2 bedroom old townhouse type na 1 lang ang gate. Within the compound din ang bahay ng landlady. Secured with cctv, barb wires and high fences iyung compound (akalain mo factory iyung bahay).
Kinuha na namin iyung house kasi we need to move out na din sa nirerent na bahay at maagnas na sa kaanayan. Malaki siya at Php 10k lang. Very nice location actually.
Ngayong nakalipat na kami, nagsulputan mga  hinaing nya sa buhay.
Dami siyang rules, like iyung pamangkin ko disiplinahin daw. Maingay daw. To think nasa bahay lang naman most of the time iyung bata pagkagaling school.
Binigyan ko pa siya ng listahan ng pangalan namin. Family + frequent visitors lang ng bahay.
Nagalit nung lumabas brother ko sa pintuan lang naman namin na nagyoyosi at naka-half dressed. Super in-istress ako sa text.
Major pumunta sa bahay last night at kinausap kami, mega english english pa si madam. Ang tatay ko cool lang naman, pero sinagot din siya in ENGLISH.
Nakakatawa pa hindi daw niya kilala Tatay ko eh kami ang nagbigay ng P30K na down sa kanya.
Grabe itong landlady na ito.
We  plan to use up the 1 month advance. So dapat ibalik niya sa amin ang 2months deposit. Since 8days pa lang kami pina-pa-evict na niya kami sa bahay. Kesyo daw nagkamali siya sa pagpili sa amin blah blah. Nakakaloka.
Have you had same experience like this sissies?

First time namin mag-rent ng apartment ng husband ko (no kids). Mag-two years na kami rito, and so far, we've been very lucky with our landlord. Super bait. Lahat ng binago namin sa loob ng bahay, like re-paint & installation of certain things pinayagan niya. Wala rin kaming contract. We pay him thru post-dated cheques, although hindi naman niya ni-require 'yun. Decision lang namin 'yun for convenience on our part. Tapos well-maintained nila ang buong apartment compound.

Kaso ang problema naman namin 'yung ibang tenants. May mga pakialamera, maiingay, at minsan may mga nakikihiram pa ng gamit ng walang paalam. Syempre, in 2 years namin dito, kung sino-sino na rin tumira sa ibang units. Pag maingay (lalo na 'yung mga mahilig mag-inuman mag-damag) at marami nang complaints, eventually pinapaalis na ng landlord.

I think naman ang problema sa landlady niyo eh mukhang nag-uulyanin na. Mura na nga 'yung PHP 10,000 townhouse, lalo kung well-maintained naman. Kaso kung sakit naman ng ulo ang may-ari, hindi na rin worth it.

tita ko may paupahan dati. Actually strict din tita ko pero hindi naman tulad ng landlady mo.

Nasaan ang contract? Basahin maigi. Hindi pwedeng paalisin niya kayo. Or invite her over dinner para mapagusapan talaga ang rules. Baka kulang lang sa lambing si landlady. Or stress lang siya. 76 na siya at talaga naman ulyanin, kulang sa pansin/lambing na ang mga ganyang edad.

As long as wala naman kayong vinaviolate na rules like nakakaistorbo na sa iba, okey lang 'yan sis.

Kami naman ni hubby 2k lang ang rent, 2rooms na sa antipolo bayan. 3years na si hubby doon at kami naman as mag-asawa ay 1year na magkasama doon.
Hindi pa nagincrease ng rent at super bait. Pero siyempre, hindi naman kami pumapalya sa bayad.
Blah blah blah!

sis walang contract, kasi sabi ni landlady bibigay daw niya to think 8th day pa lang namin last feb 13 (kasi we moved in feb 5). na-sstress daw siya sa amin. ano naman ang iningay namin doon eh 7pm nagkakaroon ng tao sa bahay. iyung pamangkin ko naman madaldal lang.siyempre bata iyun. mga tao doon anemic na, may mga bata ayaw payagan na lumalabas.

kaya eto maghahanap ulit ng apartment. dapat ibalik niya deposit namin. gagamitin lang namin [textspeak!] 1 month advance.  dapat nga pati pag-upa sa lipat bahay truck bayaran niya eh.

we have our own apartment, 3 door.

Kung hindi ninyo sila kayang pakisamahan, then umalis na kayo kesa magkaroon pa kayo ng malalang misunderstandings.

just a fair advice. =)

Kung papayag yung landlady na ibalik yung deposit ninyo mas ok siguro na lumipat na lang kayo. Siya naman unang nagsabi na umalis na kayo diba?  Nagpaparent din kami pero before may lumipat pinakikita ko sa kanila yung copy ng contract at naka specify dun yung mga rules (re ingay, garbage disposal, max # occupants etc). Mahirap kasi kapag ganyang walang contract. Hindi malinaw kung ano ang mga pinagbabawal niya.

Did you get a receipt or any written acknowledgment from her for all your payments?

There is, technically, no such thing as a non-refundable deposit here in the Phils.   So dapat makua mo your 2mo. deposit back.
