Residents of four DMCI condominiums in Davao City have blasted the Consunji family for neglecting them and causing them stress and sorrow.
In an open letter to the Consunji family,
homeowners of Ecoland 4000, Magallanes Residences,Palmetto Place and Verdon Parc assailed the settlement offer which failed to take into consideration the damages and the increase in the value of the land.
“It is not enough that your buildings are weak, your after sales service is even weaker. You left all your condounit owners homeless, lost, neglected and unattended. If not with PRRD’s [President Rodrigo Duterte’s] rants on national TV, you wouldn’t even care to give your unit owners monthly assistance for their rentals. Two months too late,” the unit owners of the damaged buildings said.
“Everyone wants out from your building now, but you want them to return. You did not realize how much trauma, stress, anxiety and depression your substandard buildings caused. You offered to buy back their units, but you are only willing to pay acquisition cost.
You did not even consider paying for damages, not even the substantialincrease in the value of the land. You failed to consider that your clients have spent a lot on improvements on your property, thinking they will have a lifetime to enjoy their investment,” they said.
“Did you ever think thatyour settlement offer will cover the comfort, convenience, security and serenity which we have now lost because we are forced to evacuate? We demand more,” the home owners added.
The four buildings collapsed during the earthquake last October.
