My daughter rents an apartment for 1 to 3 months only somewhere in Angeles City. It was a 2 bedrooms apartment. The agreement is 1 month advance payment and two months deposits. The owner issue a receipt with a note at the back, 1 month advance of 8 thousand pesos plus 2 month security deposits of 16 thousand pesos with total of 24 thousand pesos. Due to the nature of my daughter employment as a waiter on a cruise ship, The agency requires her that she has to be in closed contact with them to be able to render training/seminars from time to time. And that makes her decide to advise the apartment owner that she will finish the rental after 1 month and 15 days and withdraw the deposits of 16 thousand pesos. However the owner refused to give back the unconsumed 2 months deposits.
Thank you for any advice you can extend to us.
