condo repair, sagot ko ba. covered ba ito ng assoc or insurance?

Hi,

My unit po ako pina pa rent for 1.5 yrs contract. Yung tenant ko ayaw na tapusin kc di na daw nila kaya bayaran, lilipat sila sa mas mura. So in short, breach of contract. 6 months pa bago mg end dapat. Nsa contract namin pag breached ng contract, forfeited na ang deposit(20k). So payag naman sila no problem. Eto ngayon ang prob, next week aalis na sila pero biglang may nangyari sa unit just days ago. Nabasag nila ang glass door sa unit. Mahal po ang glass door, nag pa quote ako 7k daw plus 2k installation.

Eto ngayon ang question ko, masisingil ko pa ba sila or tama sila na hindi na daw nila need magbayad since covered na ng deposit (na forfeited na in the first place). Tama bang idededuct nila yun dun kasi nasa contract daw na deductible ang repair sa deposit. Kaso sabi ko parang lugi ako kasi nabasag o hindi yung glass door, sakin na talaga dapat yun since i-end nila ang contract na hindi pa tapos. forfeited na nga di ba? Base sa contract below sino po tama samin? thanks

If hindi ko masingil, sagot ba ito ng insurance or ng assoc dues namin? sayang naman kasi ang mahal pa naman ng mga binabayad ko jan.

    just take it from the 20k deposit. is it really worth your while to fight tooth and nail for 9k worth of damages?

    in the scheme of all things, the 18 months worth of rent, 9k is just a small amount to lose sleep over.

    alright?

    hindi sya kasama sa association due or sa insurance.

    ^^Hindi po ba nakalagay sa contract na in case may damages sa unit ay sila ang magparepair?

    Before niyo po iconsider as payment ng broken glass iyong forfeited deposit, check niyo rin po, baka may mga unpaid telephone, electricity and water bills sila, baka kulang pa iyong forfeited deposit to pay for these unpaid bills
  • I agree with you on this, B&B, from someone who also owns both condos and townhouses, 18 months worth of rent and you are *****ing about 9K??? give or take?

    Seriously, some people the more money they get the more they take advantage of other people.

  • In real life, even the mall owners do not sue the retailers who sign up for what, 5 year, 10 year leases and give up a year or so down the road because of poor sales.

    Mall owners na yun and the rent per square metre in their centres are pretty heavy on the pocket -- but do they make such a fuss over a "breach" or "repudiation" of a lease agreement? nope, coz you'll only rack up more fees in mainly in legal costs because of that and business owners know even the smallest consideration can mean a lot when a business is going through some tough times.

    Bottomline: Give it up, take the 9k off the deposit and move on. 9k isn't going to kill you - but a reputation as a "difficult" landlord is going to give you more problems later on.

    yep. pero again, in the scheme of all things, 9k is pretty petty.

    20k/ month for 18 months is 360k.

    9k is spare change in comparison.
