How about reservation fees?


Reservation is from Php 7,500 to Php 30,000 depending on the house model.  It is non-refundable and will form part of your downpayment.  It can be transferred to another unit or person provided it is from the same agent and developer.  A transfer fee of Php 3,000 will be charged to the buyer.  1 – 2 weeks approval.

When will the first equity/downpayment be made?

How about monthly amortization?

Monthly Amortization

First monthly amortization will start after finishing payments of monthly equity or downpayment.  It will not coincide with the downpayment.  Amount and duration will depend on the loan and term applied for.
