Camella Homes vs Home Owners

Camella Homes,owned by Manny Villar and managed by his daughter, has the worst service. They don’t act on the complaints of the home owners, which are 90% OFWs, who paid millions of pesos for a 40 sq.m. house.

The complaints were never acted on. In fact, they do not even act on the fact that part of their contract states that the house will be built within 6 months and unfortunately, other houses were built for almost a year. OFWs who already believed that when they get back here they already have a house to stay, went somewhere else because, there is no house yet!!!

Bago siya magpa-uwi ng OFWs, ayusin niya muna ang problema ng mga OFWs na kumuha ng bahay at lupa sa kanyang subdivisions.

Huwag magpaloko!

  1. sir dens, it would be nice if we publish the complaint letter and the response of the management to give more credence to the claim.
    Pakigbisogan! Barugan! ehehehhe :))

  2. I also had my share of frustrations with camella. I entered into a sales contract with last them Dec. 6, 2007 to give my 2 mos. old baby boy a better place to live. I have already paid 80% of the total contract price since August 2008 and up until now, my house is under construction. My baby is turning 2 this October and he still lives in a bulilit house. Several times i have met with people in Camella but all i get back are false promises and commitment dates.

    To all other OFW and interested buyers, Camella has the worst customer service ever. All they are after is your money. That’s it. So think twice, think 100 x before giving away your hard earned money to them.

    • I am calling the goverment inspecters in to look at our property.
      We bought from Asian Land, Malolos, Bulacan.
      There is a lack of a foundation to the house with cracks everywhere, now the waste pipes are breaking due to ground movement.
      Will take them to court if I have to, lets all fight back.

    • can i have ur complete name para malaman ko po kung talagang naka 80% kana na payment sa camella and ur house is still under construction parin…wawa naman si villar dami naiinggit binabanatan ng binabanatan tlaga.Bakit pa kaya lumalaki ng lumalaki ang camella kung puro lang naman pala kapalpakan ang nandito.dami tlaga naiinggit kay villar.isa din akong homeowner sa camella iloilo bakit satisfied naman ako sa tinitirhan kong bahay.kung may problema naman siguro kayo yon di nyo inaayos requirements nyo kaya tagal maconstruct bahay nyo kasi bago naman itatayo ng developer mga bahay nyo dapat muna approval ng bank or letter of guarantee ya minsan nadedelay pagconstruct ng bahay kasi diba inuutang nyo?at yung inuutangan nyo humihingi ng collateral at di nyo rin binabantayan ang construction ng bahay nyo taz puro pa kayo reklamo bakit bago naman maturn over sa inyo at iaccept nyo ang bahay pinapacheck naman kung ok na sa inyo diba???? kapalpakan din sa mga agent na pinili nyo dapat kasi in house agent kunin nyo full time kasi salary based sila at palagi nasa ofis ng camella at para maasikaso at mabantayan bahay nyo kung tamad kayo imonitor construction ng bahay nyo!!!! mahirap hagilapin ang mga agent na di full time kasi dami silang hinahawakan subdivision nagbibase lang sila sa commission kasi walang sahod kaya pag matapos na nilang maenjoy commission nila sa inyo ay pabayaan na kayo…at sana gumawa nlang kayo ng sarili nyong bahay para mamonitor nyo construction at magawa nyo lahat2 ng gusto nyo wag na kayong umutang ng bahay para perpekto lahat pagkagawa…ipunin nyo nalang pera nyo bunili kayo ng lupa at magconstruct kayo ng sarili nyong bahay para wala na kayo reklamo…nakakainis na basahin mga comment nyo puro na kasinungaling…di naman nagbibigay ng mga totoong pangalan para malaman at matulungan…

      • Sana maclarify ang mga issue na ‘to kasi I have been subscribed to this blog one year ago pa and halos every week may bagong complain. Kami ni mister ay nagbabalak dati na kumuha sa Camella ng Santiago,Isabela. Wala pa akong nakitang complain regarding sa area na ‘yun kaya lang nakakaapekto nga naman ang mga nakasulat dito sa site na ‘to. In a way nakatulong ‘din para mag-isip ng mabuti at maki-deal sa mga taong nararapat. ‘Yung iba kasing ahente iniisip kung papano lang kumita.

      • I am now facing some problem in camella homes and i dont want to share all of this sentiment I just want to ask if i could terminate my contract and ask my money back even though they could charge me for that. currently i am paying my 24 months of equity and running now for 16 months … seek your advise.. thx. exerion

      • My nerves are wrecking now as I am reading all these comments. Jane are you connected with Camella Homes? We bought a house here in Camella, Laoag, it is now under construction. We are now in our 3rd month amortization. Sana naman hindi mangyayari sa amin yan. Sa totoo lang nanginginig na ako sa kababasa ng comments. Pls if you are connected with Camella, don’t let yourself na mapasama ka sa kasakiman nila if the allegations are true. Am really worried kasi dugo at pawis puhunan ng asawa sa monthly payment na lang. Camella huwag naman kayong magsamantala.

      • pcenxa na ha but our sentiments here is all about the low quality substandard materials na ginamit s bahay and not on villar..base on my experience ito na ang pinakaworst na decision na nagawa namin mag asawa ang kumuha ng unit s camella ang daming sira ng bahay namin grabeh naka ilang taon pa lng kami butas na ang ding2x mga leaks etc…..di ko na mamention lahat at isa pa ang mga homeowners dito ang daming reklamo pro aksyon wala! just stating my opinion swerte mo lng one in a million ka na hindi ngkaproblema s bahay..

      • Camella doesn’t care if the subdivision they are building ay malapit sa mga hog raising or with any other environmental issues as long as maituloy nila ang project. We as OFW don’t have time to check what’s going on in the vicinity kaya bili na lang tayo. Kaya the main point is we have to be smart with a company like Camella to ask questions since they are not going to disclose everything. Where can you find a subdivision supposedly with amenities like clubhouse or playground, all around fences pero may mga moved in na ay wala pa rin itong mga included amenities during the SALE?? It should be done at least the same time the first house was done or right after the sales office was done!!!

        There should have an anti-Camella video done posted in FB, Youtube or even Yahoo! Please make one who have the ability and time to gather pictures and videos para makita ng buong mundo ang mga kapalpakan nila. It’s not fair if they keep doing business like this and robbing your hard earned money!!!

      • jane whoever, you have no right to dictate us how we will invest our money,, mangutang man kami for our house, wala kang pakialam dahil hindi ikaw magbabayad,, masyado kang arogante and anti-poor,, we are concerned with our hard earned money and it is not your business na pakiaalan ito,, watch your words, insensitive ka,, magpakilala ka dito para malaman namin kung sino at ano ka,,

    • I agree with you they have also hidden charges ….
      Tpus mga materials nila mumurahin….
      Pinapalabas lng nila sa kabilang tenga needs at complaints ng home owners ni
      Punta k sa kanila sarap nila mag accomodiate pro puro salita wala nman immediate action…basurahan nga lng dpa nila mgawa e provide khit ilan ulit cla sinsbihan oo lng cla ng oo how much more kya major complaints….

  3. Beware also for false measurement. Based on my own experience, you cannot trust camella’s contractors to build the right space according to plan. My garage was rebuilt after I measured it myself and found out that it is smaller than what is written in the plan. I could just imagine the units sold to OFW’s that is only supervised by the housewives. They could simply just cover up for all safety and design rule deviations without the unit owner knowing

    • Roms, tama ka..victim din ako ng ganyang gawain ng camella sa malolos bulacan..ofw ako..akala ko pag camella no need na bantayan dahil sa sobrang mahal eh hindi na nila dadayain..ng umuwi ako..kala ko titirahan ko na ang bahay,,yun pala magpapasakit lang sa loob ko..napaka pangit ng bahay..puro sub standard ang nkalagay..sobrang tinipid ang bahay..
      at masakit pa balewala sa kanila pag nagreklamo ka..lalo sa opisina nila sa malolos bulacan..magaling lang maningil pero pag complaints na eh wala cla gnagawang action..kailangan pa kulitin at magalit ka sa kanila..

      • we started this so called movement last september 2009 but it failed due to lack of

        cooperation from our homeowners…. most of us homeowners have lots to say and

        complaints but most of us fails to participate… most of us are only good on talking about our

        sentiments…. but most of us are scared or for whatsoever reasons to make our move to

        take back what is rightfully ours! niloko na tayu eh, hahayaan lang ba natin na ganun

        nalang? magseself pitty ka nalang ba dyan?

        wake up guys!!!!!!!!

        our movement already had reached the attention of the city mayor’s office… and we are

        hoping that it could mean a thing or even do something about it….
        and we have lots of things in line to back our first move……..

        im calling upon all camella home owners who are fed up with camella management, stop

        na tayu sa kakadakdak sa mga hinanakit natin ….. ITS TIME FOR US TO ORGANIZE AT

        FIGHT BACK! puro nalang ba tayu dakdak….. lagi nalang natin kinukwento sa kung

        kanikanino yung mga concerns natin eh… stop na tayu sa self pitty… lets unite and make

        them pay for what they have done to us…….

        WE HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS TO CLAIM WHAT WE HAD PAID FOR….. AND WE HAVE

        ALL THE RIGHT TO PUSH OUR SENTIMENTS IN THE RIGHTFUL ORDER PARA

        MALAGOT YUNG MGA DAPAT MALAGOT….

        ITS TIME FOR US TO MAKE OUR MOVE….

        JOIN US!! our claims may take some time or maybe a very long time to be acted upon but

        atleast lets give them something to be busy with aside from hustling money from us……

        besides we are on the good side here…. wag sana nating hayaan at ganun ganun nalang

        nila tayo niloko…. lets make them pay for what they have done….

        For those homeowners who are willing to help themselves please feel freestand out and

        fight for your right……. or join existing movements as well

        For the Others, stop waiting for others to make their move for you………. its never too late act

        now )

  4. I’m also a victim of how poor Camella is in dealing with the needs of their clients. I was just wondering on how they were able to maintain their image despite the fact that there have been many complaints against them. I only wished we have known how they were before we bought a house.

    • Kat.. pareho lang tayo ng nararamdaman..sinusumpa ko ang pagkakabili ko ng bahay sa camella..mga walanghiya sila..kung alam ko lang na titipirin nila ang bahay..at wala sila kwenta kausap..hinding hindi ako bibili sa kanila.. mga magnanakaw..kapareho ng amo nila..kaya hindi dapat manalo sa eleksyon..

      • Hi Sir Always,

        If you would like to buy / built a new home… please contact me (mobile no. 09178089883)… For sure hindi ko po dadayain materyales ng house nyo… We’re a start up construction company… Thank you…

      • My mom is working as a care giver in Canada and I am a student/single mother. Because my family want to give my child a better place to live, we opt Camella, General Santos CIty. Now, before we are able to pay our 1st monthly amortization my mother decided to back-out (I guess a very good idea). This decision is because of the inconsistency and the irresponsibility of the manager Mrs. Anna Marie Guatlo and our agent and honestly they care less about the papers. Our story runs this way. I’ve been contacting them through facebook for how many time because my mom already sent her papers which are the requirements, but in return I received no reply. When in fact when they are about to get our reservation fee they call me almost everyday! Which is really a bullshit! Before I was about to give the reservation payment I really get mad with Maam Anna and frankly told her to WAIT! She told my mom that she was shocked because it was the 1st time a client treated her like that. But I guessed she deserves it. So back to my story when we are about to give our 1st payment I told my mom that they have no reply on the emails I have sent them (attached are soft copy of my mom’s req. papers). So she chat Maam Anna and told her that she was pissed of her inconsistency and responsibilities. Another issue arose when she told my mom that our 1st payment that will be moved on June instead this May so my mom felt relieve because they haven’t check if the papers she sent is already okay or what. In addition Mama also scolded and reminded her that to process papers in Canada is not as easy as the way here in Philippines. By the next day she chat mama and told her that she made a mistakes and that day is the deadline for our payment. Mama get really mad of her inconsistency and told her that she will send a lawyer to find out the truth. With that, she replied that she already made adjustment with the management (She’s the manager duh!) and we will pay on June instead.
        See how irresponsible and money-faced they are! They give us so much bullshit and keep our cellphone beeping when we are about to make a reservation and now that they have it they won’t even follow-up anything or even do their part! Damn them! anyway my mom is firm on her decision to back out. We are now planning to buy a lot and build our house instead!

  5. Our recently-purchased unit in Sienna Villas, Caloocan City is a mess… looks like constructed from rejected materials. I will be posting the pictures in the internet soon and I will publish the links to messages boards and blogs. Election is coming so I hope, we (OFWs and netizens) can use that to put pressure on Villar family. If Manny Villar cannot even deliver a good product and service to his clientele, what more can we expect from him if will be running for a public office?

    Nakikinabang na nga siya sa mga bumibili ng unit sa Camella, di pa niya mabigyan ng magandang serbisyo… anong klaseng serbisyo kaya ang puwede niyang gawin sa taong-bayan na wala naman siyang direktang pakinabang?

    • Reyes, tama ka..walang ginawang tama yang camella na yan..titipirin ang bahay at puro sub standards ang ilalagay hanggat kaya nila..puro pagnanakaw at panglalamang ang alam..kapareho ng amo nila..kaya hindi dapat manalo sa eleksyon..walang gagawin yan kung hindi magnakaw sa kaban ng bayan..

    • Did you ever post those pictures? Where if you did? Did you accept it or is it being turnover? We are buying in Bataan and stil preselling pa lang at sana ay maging maayos na sila at salamat sa nag-umpisa nitong blog for all the info. Sana ay maayos ninyong lahat ang mga naging problema ninyo sa Camella..

      • ask ko lang if ever natuloy ba ang pagbili nio ng unit sa camella bataan? nag pplan plang kame pero nag search muna ako sa net ng mga complaints if ever sa camella and so far madaming complaint. sa camella bataan ba may ganitong issue din ba? sabi ng agents nila eh 95% na sa mga unit ang nabili na so sa camella balanga na lang ang may available na unit na gusto namin pero gate pa lang ang natatayo dun. tnx in advance

      • Chel Torres, make sure you really want to get a home in Camella dahil mahigpit sila o very controlling sa mga lahat ng gusto mong gawin sa sarili mong bahay. Kahit pa bahay mo na ay you have to deal with them and HOA. We have to pay a lot of extra costs just like AC outlet and most other outlets that are needed are extra. Konting pagawa ay kailangan mong mag-bond and it’s not 100% refundable. May kupit sila!

        Be careful and think at least 10 times before you put a down or deposit.

        Madaling ka-deal ang Manager nila pero ang mga Eng’r. ay they don’t care about you. They must be trained that way by this company. You can email me directly (danny at olrs.org) if you have any questions dahil iniiwasan kong manira ng tao.

  6. my husband and i are also going through the same situations as the rest of you are. we have purchased a property last june 2007 and shelled out almost 60% for the downpayment. based on the contract, the house construction would be finished in 6month time provided that at least 20% of the total contract price has been paid. unfortunately, our house was delivered almost a year later. we moved in oct 2008. but again, moved out last march 2009.

    cracks were all over the house and the roof was leaking profusely, and it was a three month old brand new house. we moved out since the house became inhabitable because of the repair. not a part of the house wasnt repaired and to think that you paid millions for this cheaply constructed unit.

    i really hope that all homeowners will gather and finally have some voice and put an end on this. the people in this company is messing up with our lives. they really provoke aggressiveness and siphon dry emotions of the people who mistakenly bought their properties.

    it is scary to know if Villar gets to seat as the president. he might be able to monopolize everything. its about time that we do something and prevent this person from assuming the position.

    • I do have the same sentiments as you. Nakakainis ang CAMELLA, WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE TALAGA!!!! Biktima din ako. Bumili din kami ng unit, 50% of Total contract price ang Spot Down Payment namin kasi sabi ang rules nila eh 50% of TCP ang dapat nabayaran na para umpisahang iconstruct ang bahay at pag 70% na ang nahulog mo eh pwede ng mag move in. So in short, nakapag hulog na kami ng 85% ng total contract price pero hindi pa din ma i turn over ang bahay samin, Ilang beses na silang nag re-schedule ng turn over.. puro broken promises.Nag commit sila na matatapos ang construction ng unit namin at maturnover by MAY 2009 na namove ng JUNE 2009, di pa din nila natapos so na move ulit ng OCT 2009 tapos sabi by JAN 2010 sure na, tapos ngayon sabi na move ulit ng March 2010 pero walang guarantee na final na yon!!! So until now nag rirent pa din kami. Yung mga officers at staff nila eh walang paki alam sa clients nila..Hindi nila nagagawa ng maayos ang trabaho nila, walang matinong makausap sa office nila… parang mga dummies sila doon na nakadisplay lang..! Pag papasapasahan ka lang. Malalakas ata loob kasi nasa posisyon ang Big BOSS nila!!! I used to be Pro Manny Villar pero ngayon narealize ko na kung etong sariling business at organization nya eh di nya nakikita ang problema at ang kabulukan ng sistema eh what more ang buong pilipinas. Diba dapat pag bumili ka ng bahay at lupa eh it should be a happy feeling pero sa CAMELLA puro stress ang mararanasan mo.Naisip ko tuloy, ang theme ni Manny Villar eh tulungan ang mahihirap at mabigyan ang mga pinoy ng sariling bahay pero papaano mangyayari yon kung eto ngang binibili mo na ng milyon milyong piso eh hirap na hirap na silang magawa at maibigay. CAMELLA is a big company with many employees not doing their jobs. WHAT IS MORE FRUSTRATING is that they do not value erring customers!!!! I’M WONDERING HOW CAMELLA GOT THIS BIG. Mr. Manny Villar really needs to re- evaluate his organization.

      • hi i think your not a true buyer of camella homes..becuase you dont know the policies. upon 15% of payment of the total contract prize the construction will start. Kung di pa maumpisahan yung house that is maybe nasa pre selling stage palang ang buong subdivision. The move in turn over is upon loan release. Na dede lay lang naman ang move in turn over kapag di pa complete ang documents ng buyer. Standard operating procedure po is 15% down payment start ng construction ng house its not 50%.

        Camella homes start as a very small company but how come its become bigger and wider across the nation…come to think of it….

      • Sa tingin ko po miss pie hindi ka talagang true buyer sa camella kasi yung mga payment scheme at turnover na sinasabi mo ay di totoo yan. Kung talagang buyer ka can i have your full name at kung saang projects ka ng camella kumuha para macheck ko account mo at matulungan pa kita sa mga kasinungaling sinasabi mo. this is my real name kaya nga nilalagay ko name ko dito para mahanap nyo ako at matanong sa office…

    • kumuha kami ng bahay sa camella bataan at buo na namin ang DP at sobra pa nga sa kabutihang palad puro high blood ang inaabot namin sa poor service nila. sabi within 6 months matatapos ang bahay hanggang ngayon 8 months na ala pang sinisimulan at sabi july 2013 matatapos at august 2013 daw ang hand over ng unit. isang taon mahigit bago makumpleto ang 3 bedrooms na bahay c’mon camella bataan you can do better than that! at ang malupit pa nito ung agent di ka man lang makumusta at di magparamdam kasi kuha na nya ang commission nya. nakakadismaya 1st and last transaction na namin to sa camella nakakadala!

      • hi, kindly check on the unit well kc ung mga contractor sa camella bataan eh mga contractor din dito sa camella tarlac..madaming palpak na ginawa dito..

        hindi naman sa paninira pero napaka inconsistent ng camella, dito sa amin sabi my perimeter fence between phase 2 and 3 pero ndi pala, un ang promise nila ndi natupad. up to date wala pa kaming clubhouse..

        im also one of the victims na pinasok ang bahay ko ng magnanakaw dahil tulog mga guard..

    • walanghiya talaga yang camella..mga mukhang pera..puro pagnanakaw sa mga tao ang alam.. cguro miss macryll mabibilang ka sa daliri sa hindi nagrereklamo sa camella..kaya sila lumaki ng ganyan kasi nga nasa posisyon ang may ari.. puro sub standard ang mga materyales..sana lang sa mahal ng bahay at lupa nila eh provide nila ang best service sa homeowners..dapat evaluate nila ang mga bahay na ginagawa nila..dapat quality check nila ang bahay bago nila turn over sa mayari.. PURO PAGNANAKAW LANG ANG ALAM NG CAMELLA PARANG ANG AMO NILA…KAYA DAPAT HUWAG MANALO SA PAGKA PRESIDENTE..MAGNANAKAW LANG SA PINAS AT TAONG BAYAN YAN..

    • Good business practice from any reputable company would by no means require that ALL BUYERS be dissatisfied with their homes. If Camella homes was a reputable company – or cared one bit for their customer base – they would be concerned if ONE customer had such complaints – - very concerned if 3 customers had similar complaints – and extremely concerned if half a dozen or more had such complaints.

      You guys need to go to the ombudsman, or pool your resources and hire a lawyer – AND you need to go to the TV news stations and “investigador” with PICTURES and with documentation of your collective situation.

      Camella homes is doing this BECAUSE THEY CAN – because they are COUNTING ON YOU, AND YOU AND YOU NOT TO DO ANYTHING THAT CAN HURT THEIR BUSINESS OR THEIR POCKETBOOK.

      Believe me, some pix and interviews on ABS-CBN or GMA news would open their eyes – - and a CRIMINAL PROCEEDING (NOT A CIVIL LAWSUIT – BUT A CRIMINAL) FOR FRAUD AND DISHONEST BUSINESS PRACTICE – followed by a civil lawsuit for damages would probably put them out of business – but they would still be required to fix and/or compensate for the damages.

      YOU SHOULD BE POSTING THIS STUFF ON EVERY BLOG YOU CAN FIND! POST PICTURES – GET A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE! (THEY CAN’T STOP THAT) – AND ON VIMEO AND EVERYWHERE ELSE – LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

      CAMELLA HOMES IS COUNTING ON YOU TO DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING – EXCEPT COMPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHO CAN’T DO ANYTHNG ABOUT IT! LIKE US – OR YOUR MOM – OR YOUR NEPHEW’S UNCLE – -

      good luck! and you can be sure I’ll never buy one those dumps!

      • I took photos…. I am looking to meet with the city Engineer of Taguig for the problems created by them. There is no drainage… toilet and bath is of a deplorable condition. I thank you for telling me about the measurements, I will ask a 3rd party engineer to do the measuring of the property as well as the parts of the house.

  7. my mother bought a house and lot in Teresa, rizal- Carissa Homes East 1 last 1999, paid under house financing, finished paying in 2005. The house was in complete mess when we moved in. Now, the big problem is , the title is not yet transferred to my mother’s name. Since then, they keep on promising that the title is under reconstruction. But how long will it take to do the reconstruction?

  8. We purchased a unit at Lessandra Cavite.
    Numerous advise to them was given that we’ll be moving on a given date.
    It was a nightmare when we arrived with our belonging because the unit was a mess. Well have to wait under the rain for 3 hours waiting for the key to the unit. No electricity. No water. Sewage half done. Doors not fitting on the frame. The house was dirty and dusty. To think they were the one who gave the date when we can move in.

    Currently, the community has no fence with outsiders going in and out freely. Cows and dogs are roaming and dumping their waste all around.

    They had the worst customer service. Its almost impossible to call their office and their CS personnel don’t seem to their know work.

    • Hi,im very much concern sa comment mo.because im planning to buy 2wks from now dyn mismo sa lessandra imus.mgnda b ung pgkkgawa sa haus?at gaano katotoo n after we fully paid the 82,500 down pyment is pwede n mag move in?pls reply!ayaw ko msayang ung ibbyd namin n pera.thanks.

  9. Hi, i came across this site..our house is under construction by camella now..we bought a 2.4M Carmela house model in Cerrittos trails..and i am really really worried about the things you said. How can I prevent this from happenning to us? is it better if we hire an engineer to look-out for the house while it’s under construction? gusto nga sana namin magtipid kaya kame bumili ng house, it will be devastating to my family if palpak ang bahay.

    • you can monitor the construction of the house…your SPA or the buyer it self has authority to check the on going construction…. you can check even the materials.

      • its true, you can monitor the materials & progress of the construction but you can not interfere to what the contractors are doing…you can have all your observations/comments to be acted only when the property is completed / being handed over for your acceptance….so during the joint inspection and before you sign for acceptance, ask for the lay out of the property (lot area, floor area, house materials) for your reference and ..better bring your engineer to assist you in the inspection… you have 3 months as warranty time for the workmanship quality…..you will be lucky if your broker/agent will be there to assist you….

  10. hi, does anybody can help me?…we bought a house and lot at camella malolos bulacan (provence)…the construction of the house was done, but we have noticed the floor was constructed below the ground level…i filed a complaint about this to their office but they cant give us a permanent solution and it seems that they dont even act…now, every time it rains, our house was like a catch basin of water from our neighbors….we cant put fence yet because we dont have enough money for that yet…please us help on what we can do for them to act immediately on this matter…thanks

    • Warlock..isa din pala kayo sa biktima ng camella(provence) sa malolos..ako rin biktima ng pangwawalanghiya ng camella..puro pagtitipid at sub standards na gamit..mga walanghiya yan..marami pang katulad natin na nagrereklamo sa kanila..

      • hi always, ako din may problema din kami sa provence. Bummili kami last oct 2009 tapos na ang downpayment namin pero ang masma ung nov hangang jan2011 hindi daw nila makita ung bayad, hanggang ngaun d pa nila ginagawa ang bahay. super stressed out na kami ng asawa ko and d2 pa ako sa Canada kaya wala ako magawa.

    • Hoy camella..kayo ang umayos sa sarili nyo..puro pangwawalanghiya sa tao ang alam nyo..sa dami ng nagrerekalmo sa inyo dapat may ginagawa na kayo..halimbawa..bago nyo turn over sa may ari ang unit dapat na quality check nyo na muna..hindi yung may ari pa ang hahayaan nyo magcheck..dapat may mga standards kayo na sinusunod..ang alam nyo lang eh puro kawalanghiyaan at pahirapan ang mga buyer nyo eh.. puro kayo pagnanakaw eh..magtrabaho kaya kayo..ayusin nyo trabaho nyo..

  11. In June 1, 2009, I purchased a home in Sorrento through Camella Properties, (a.k.a. Crown Communities, Pampanga, Philippines. I paid P2,400,200 cash upfront for the Elaisa model blocl 20, lot 4.

    I visited my new home several times, with my Philippine fiance, from June through October., and watched as my house was being built. Camella Properties Business Director, Mr.Joseph Mahusay upon my request, walked the property boundaries in my presence.

    In mid September, I learned that the house I had been monitoring was not actually my house. Something had gone very wrong. It sounded very fishy. I asked the help of Brygy. Capt. Rafael Yabut and Gerry Santos to be present at a meeting with the general manager of Camella Homes Pampanga. Much thanks to those brgy. Capt. by the way…

    At a meeting on 9/23/09 at the company’s satelite office in Mc. Arthur highway San Fernando, we were officially informed by Ms. Ma. Graciela Lopena and Mr. Joseph Mahusay that they personally made a ”mistake on the lot number.” Through a supposed error on the part of Camella, “my lot is apparently somewhere else.” They claimed they just recently discovered the error. Really!! Hard to believe that professionals don’t know their own business and they would make a egregious mistake like that. As a businessman, this sounds like pure fiction. Doesn’t add up. If you believe taht, you believe anything.

    Imagine my dismay., when I learned this. I believe that Camella flat out lied to me. The tactic they used seems like a classic “bait and switch,” strategy. They “bait” you with the promise of a nice location, then later they “switch” you later (like four months later) to another location. There is a more expensive house 20% constructed on the new site. It’s a different style than the one on our original property Somebody obviously backed out and they are trying to push this property on me. That’s my conclusion. Bottom line – no honesty, no ethics, no decency, just lies, deception, wasted time, and total lack of caring.

    In effect, Camella has unilaterally invalidated the contract, and are now holding my money illegally. I have retained the services of an attorney to get my money back. Has anyone had a similar experience with this company? We would have loved to have given praise to Camella for a job well done, but unfortunately cannot. The message – caveat emptor! So I ask all y fellow ex-pats to be cautious with Camella and definitely with other companies. Particularly read the contract. They are 99% against you and some of the language even sounds illegal. It is that bad.

    I have read all your comments here. Let’s start a Camella Complaints User Group to pool ideas and take action. I have started a law suit against them. I can leverage our voice as my former job in USA was media relations ans public relations expert. I have already utilized 14 expat web sites to place infomration and am being interviewed on the topic for Philippine television –peadar333@comcast. net. Let’s go guys!!

    • Peter,

      count me in..and all the home owners in camella in bulacan (provence) that has complaints.. the worst service.. and a good liars..put it in media..please!!!

      • Peter,

        3. Mess in Electrical cables

        One more thing I send then official complaint to their GM in Bulacan but they didn’t even bother to reply…..

        Regards,

        Great_Supremo

  12. Hi, me and my wife bought a unit in Cerrittos trails… The place looks good but I hope that it will be ok for a long time. The building of our unit start last sep 25, 2009. Any suggestions or advice for the like of us?

    @ Icar, sa cerritos trails ka rin? ung sa daang hari? sana ok lugar natin.

    • The research I have done and the people I have talked to suggest that Camella are thieves and just want your money. This bears up with my own experience. Read what people are saying on this site.

    • my advice to you guys, wag nyo nang alamin kung papano ginawa, the moment na makalipat kayo ipa inspect nyo lahat sa mga engr. and make the proper modifications.

    • Hi me and my wife also have unit in cerritos trail phase 2 carmella model 104 sq.mtr. ang lot area 2.6m tapos n yung sa dp. payment.I hope n sana ok yung place natin hindi biro magbayad ng malaki at pano kitaain ang pero im also ofw .na gagawin ang lahat n trabaho para lng mabigyan ng magandang bahay at buhay ang pamilya.Camella pls do yur best sa lahat ng customers hindi namin pinupulot ang pera.I hope help all the the complainatnts all in this site.thank you…

  13. May houses naman kaming binili through Camella properties, wala naman kaming naging problema whatsoever. Wag naman sigurong akusahan agad na thieves sila. Siguro kailangan niyo lang lapitan ng maayos yung mga tamang tao. Hindi yung agitated lahat kasi walang mapupuntuhan kung papangunahan lang kayo lagi ng galit. Opinion ko lang naman. Thanks. :)

    • thats easy for you to say, kami mag 2 years nang nag hihintay and we have invested an ample amount of time energy and emotion over this. Ang hirap kaya na makita mong yung bahay na pinag hirapan nyo eh isang bagyo lang tanggal lahat ng bubong at ito pa swerte na at hindi pa kami nakakalipat sa ngayon. Now we will take legal actions regarding this becasue its the only way to get their attention.

    • kahit sinong santa eh papasukan ng matinding galit when ur dealing w/ CAMELLA kasi kahit anung magandang usap ang gawin ng client nila at ilang beses sila puntahan eh deadma lang sila sa mga hinaing ng mga clients nila. Wala silang mabibigay na acceptable na explanation at solution sa mga lapses nila. Nakakaawa ang mga Pilipinong nagsusumikap na magkaron ng sariling bahay. No wonder kaya pala maraming mas gusto nalang tumira sa squatter kasi kahit pala may pambili ka eh papahirapan ka pa.!!!!

  14. Me and my girlfriend are also suffering from camella’s/carissa’s negligence in doing their end of the bargain. we bought a property as early as last year but until now the house is not finished we have been going back and forth to their office to follow up and ask for updates and we visit the unit itself just to find out that after a year and a half, the house it still not finished. Also I advise everyone planning to buy a property from camella Do not transact with the contractor who is building your house. Contractors? Yes Camella does not build the houses they hire independent small time contractor to build the houses and they just get an architect to inspect the output, Just imagine the quality of the houses they are building. We got into an agreement with the contractor to add some improvement into the interior and fence at the back. But after a while we found out that the contractor was fired by carissa and did not finish the agreed improvments. After all of these problems that villars housing companies are giving, we are now thingking if we still want the house.

  15. I had the same worst experiences with camella.We got only countless promises.They didn’t listen to your plea.But very active when it comes to money matters-collecting on what you owe from them…But if its your own’s sake deadma ka na!mabagal pa sa pagong ang service na ibibigay sa iyo.Nakakadismaya talaga!!!!!!!!

  16. huhuhu… ganun ba?… tatlo pa namin ang kinuha naming elaisa unit sa Camella Isabela… Dapat pala bantayan ng mabuti ang mga gumagawa since independent pala sila sa mg nagcoconstruct… Buti nalang marami kaming kakilala sa mga gumagawa….

    Ipapakita ko tong blog na to sa mga namumuno sa Camella Isabela para hindi nila kami basta bastahin, buti nalang kilala namin sila!…

    Mahal din ang isang unit dyan ha, kung gaganunin nila, patay sila!

    Kaya pala sinasabi samin nung ibang worker sa field na kunin namin sila pag sisimulan na yung units dahil baka nga tipirin yung materials… Papano kaya makasisiguro sa materials na di siya substandard?…

    I will raise all these concerns next time na puntahan ko sila!… ahah akala nila?… buti nagaral ako ng batas!!!!..

    anyways, I will still give them the benefit of the doubt, hindi naman kasi lahat ng buyers, dissatisfied, siguro dahil talagang monitored nila ang construction….

  17. I am so sick of Camella. I am making a presentation to 46 Industrial Engineering students at a local University and the topic of Camella poor quality, lack of responsibility, and gross ineffectiveness is a topic on my Agenda.

    I am also thinking of making a large professional sign to hang from my balcony outlining my grievances. That shoudl get their attention.

  18. One thing we all have an obligation to do is spread the word about Camella lack of ethics, responsibility, and quality. Don’t forget to talk to friends, acquaintances, and even strangers.

    • to

      Talk to everyone you can – - GET THE WORD OUT ON TWITTER, FACEBOOK, MY SPACE – EVERYTHING!

      THEY WILL “NICKLE AND DIME” YOU TO DEATH INDIVIDUALLY – BUT IF YOU UNITE AGAINST THEM – WITH A PLAN – THEY WON’T STAND A CHANCE!

      You guys need to go to the ombudsman, AND/or pool your resources and hire a lawyer – AND you need to go to the TV news stations and “investigador” with PICTURES and with documentation of your collective situation.

      Camella homes is doing this BECAUSE THEY CAN – because they are COUNTING ON YOU, AND YOU, AND YOU, NOT TO DO ANYTHING THAT CAN HURT THEIR BUSINESS OR THEIR POCKETBOOK.

      Believe me, some pix and interviews on ABS-CBN, RPN NEWS or GMA news would open their eyes – – and a CRIMINAL PROCEEDING (NOT A CIVIL LAWSUIT – BUT CRIMINAL CHARGES) FOR FRAUD AND DISHONEST BUSINESS PRACTICE, FALSE ADVERTISING, NEGLIGENCE AND GRAND LARCENY (THEFT) – followed by a civil lawsuit (MAKE IT A CLASS ACTION SUIT – NOT ONLY AGAINST CAMELLA HOMES, BUT ALSO AGAINST MANNY VILLAR AND HIS FAMILY) for damages would probably put them out of business – but they would still be required to fix and/or compensate for the damages.

      YOU SHOULD BE POSTING THIS STUFF ON EVERY BLOG YOU CAN FIND! POST PICTURES – PUT UP A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE! (THEY CAN’T STOP THAT) – AND ON VIMEO AND EVERYWHERE ELSE – LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

      CAMELLA HOMES IS COUNTING ON YOU TO DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING – EXCEPT COMPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHO CAN’T DO ANYTHNG ABOUT IT! LIKE US – OR YOUR MOM – OR YOUR NEPHEW’S UNCLE – -

      I can see most of you reading this and thinking to yourself – “gosh that would be so impolite – I couldn’t do that . . . ” – WAKE UP AND SMELL YOUR LOSSES!

      NOBODY deserves to suffer like so many of you have — now quit being “victims” and go out there and DO something!

  19. Camella is a shameful outfit with no conscience. If I wasn’t convinced before, I am now. They prove themselves by their actions.

  20. i am very happy with my house in Camela. its just a matter of how we transact to the right people. If pangungunahan natin ng galit and frustrations agad… wala talaga masesettle..I suggest you also validate your concens if valid o ndi….

  21. Has there been any updates on this site? any actions submitted to Camella/Crown/Vista land? I got a house from Camella in Cebu (Montserrat) and seems that “everyone” is having the same issues
    1. Delayed turn over
    2. No Water
    3. No permanent electricity.

    I just submitted my letter to Manny Villar’s office and i hope people will mo ve by doing such.

    to mcrylL – I have been very patient and given nice words and thought everything will be fine… but seems it’s all the same thing …

  23. To camella,

    it was pain in the ass buying a house with you..you all go to hell with your evil master! sana lang masaya kayo sa ginagawa nyo! sa panloloko at pangwawalanghiya nyo sa mga tao.. makunsensya naman kayo..sabagay wala nga palang kunsensya ang mga demonyo..mana sa amo..

    • Sa lahat po ng may reklamo:

      Una – dalhin po natin ito sa Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (HLURB). lalo na po duon sa mga matagal ng nakapagbayad ng buo (total contract payment) o ng buong unang kabayaran (downpayment) at ang unit nilang binibili ay hindi pa matapos-tapos at maibigay. Kung kaya nyo pong magbayad ng abogado, mas makakabuti.

      Ikalawa – Bumoto kayo sa isang kandidatong presidente na iniisip nyong pwede ninyong pagkatiwalaan at hindi manloloko.

  24. Dear Esteemed Camella Home Owners:

    Thank-you for signing on the dotted line. We don’t know when we can supply you with full electrical service. As you know nothing happens fast in the Philippines, except taking your money (HeHe -joke).

    Sorry for not being able to use your microwave, aircon, fan, stereo, etc. Have faith in us. After all thats what our politicians say. And of course you believe them! Right!

    Well have to go now. My wife and kids are here at our favorite restaurant and we are enjoying ourselves on your hard earned money. I will be in touch.

  25. Very true, pero ang ginawa ko kasi ay gumagawa ako ng mga letters para ireklamo ang tungkol sa pagkakagawa sa bahay, tapos pinafollow-up ko pa. hmmm…. nagsawa na rin ako kaka follow-up kami nalang ang gumawa ng paraan para sa mga minor issues, maswerte lang kasi ako kasi tatay ko ay nasa construction industry kaya napatibay namin ang mga extension ng bahay. Pero actually mura lang ang bahay ng Camella dapat ang lupa ang mahal dito kasi medyo malapit na kami sa alabang. I moved-in last 2007. Tama ang sinabi ni anonymous 15% ang kailangan ang maibayad bago simulan ang construction ng bahay. for my case nagstart sila mga 2006 na ang construction. may mga issues kasi sa construction kaya napatagal ang move-in date ko. Oo hanggat may matitipid sa materyales ay tinitipid nila. Pero I think hindi Camella ang gumagawa noon kundi contractors. Ang kasalanan lang ng Camella bakit tinanggap nila ang mga contractors na ganito dapat iband nila ang mga ganitong contractors. tsk tsk tsk…

  26. Kaya nagkakacrack ang mga bahay ay hindi kasi napoison ang mga pinagtayuan nito. Lately nagtanong ako sa camella tungkol dito ang systema pala ay ikaw ang magbibigay ng pang poison ng lupa. tsk tsk tsk… hindi nila ako inabisuhan na kailangan ganun ang processo akala ko kasi kasama ang poisoning sa house building contract nila. Ok naman ang nabili ko naka register naman sa registry of deeds. Alam ko kasi iyong iba may problema ata sa registry of deeds. So check din ninyo mabuti kung may titulo na ang lupang bibilhin ninyo bago kayo magbayad. k.

  27. Guys,
    all comments stated above are very TRUE!! OWNing camella property was really a frustrating decision and a bad nightmare. From the broker sales agent,going to camella engineers,up to construction workers..they all have one thing in common–STUPID, ROOKIES & LIARS!!!

    I bought at Lessandra Executive-Daang hari , while complains are not their priorities,they don’t care about the welfare of the homeowners/buyers at all. Provably camella awaits same tragic incident happened at Cherryhills subd.Antipolo before camella make ACTIONS on complains..

    Camella customer service at household development alabang along with MGS rookies engineers are so called” INUTILS” due to incompetent , slow moving personels and incapable of TRUST..
    NEVER trust this people!! They have SHOWbiz and Politician in their BLOOD.
    “KAWAY-KAWAY at fashionate saiyo,,’PAG TALIKOD BAHALA KA SA BUHAY MO!!!”pakialam ko” thats their main objective”

  28. Am with United Nation Mission and i never recomend neither suggest to any of my colleages working abroad to invest their hard earned money in any camella properties. Its a big disappointment!!!

    Anyway,we all learned from mistakes and never do it again…

    Godbless Camella personels.

  29. I think camella did an immediate expansion even they dont have enough capabilities ..all was rush but they do have a good intention for that expansion all over the our country.. I hope that camella will have a uniform and excellent contractors so that they will go through any little single contrator that will not assure u..

    guys, Always think positive for the best ..

  30. Hmm..

  32. we started this so called movement last september 2009 but it failed due to lack of

    cooperation from our homeowners…. most of us homeowners have lots to say and

    complaints but most of us fails to participate… most of us are only good on talking about our

    sentiments…. but most of us are scared or for whatsoever reasons to make our move to

    take back what is rightfully ours! niloko na tayu eh, hahayaan lang ba natin na ganun

    nalang? magseself pitty ka nalang ba dyan?

    wake up guys!!!!!!!!

    our movement already had reached the attention of the city mayor’s office… and we are

    hoping that it could mean a thing or even do something about it….
    and we have lots of things in line to back our first move……..

    im calling upon all camella home owners who are fed up with camella management, stop

    na tayu sa kakadakdak sa mga hinanakit natin ….. ITS TIME FOR US TO ORGANIZE AT

    FIGHT BACK! puro nalang ba tayu dakdak….. lagi nalang natin kinukwento sa kung

    kanikanino yung mga concerns natin eh… stop na tayu sa self pitty… lets unite and make

    them pay for what they have done to us…….

    WE HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS TO CLAIM WHAT WE HAD PAID FOR….. AND WE HAVE

    ALL THE RIGHT TO PUSH OUR SENTIMENTS IN THE RIGHTFUL ORDER PARA

    MALAGOT YUNG MGA DAPAT MALAGOT….

    ITS TIME FOR US TO MAKE OUR MOVE….

    JOIN US!! our claims may take some time or maybe a very long time to be acted upon but

    atleast lets give them something to be busy with aside from hustling money from us……

    besides we are on the good side here…. wag sana nating hayaan at ganun ganun nalang

    nila tayo niloko…. lets make them pay for what they have done….

    For those homeowners who are willing to help themselves please feel freestand out and

    fight for your right……. or join existing movements as well

    For the Others, stop waiting for others to make their move for you………. its never too late act now )

  33. Same thing also here…I bought a house in Camella Baliuag. I was promised a Single Detached unit (Carmela Unit) and when I first came to see the house I was suprised to see the unit itself na nakadikit sa katabing bahay!…This is not the house that I’m paying for! Hindi man lang ako naiformed sa alterations whatsoever! OFW po ako and meron naman akong designated na SPA pero maski yun SPA ko hindi man lng naiformed!…I’ve talked to the person in charge sa account namin & pati na rin sa on-site engineer, hindi naging maliwanag ang reasons nila…I’ve demanded na irefund or i-reconstruct yun contract dahil iba yun unit na binabayaran ko….They’ve said na bigyan ko sila ng two weeks para ma-sort out yun problema pero ang naging solution nila is ilipat na lang ako ng ibang unit na single detached…Knowing na walang patutunguhan yun hinihingi ko i gave in na rin pero ang nakakasama ng loob sa ginawa ng Baliuag office nila is pinababayaran sa akin yun transfer fee sa akin na 10,000 pesos!…What kind of a sick joke is that?!!…Sila na yun clearly ang nagkamali pero kami pa ang nag-susuffer sa kalokohan nila….

    • hi, I have the same issue on our house. can you please tell me more about what happened to your house and what did those incompetent people told you. THANKS

      • Hi ms. Marisse…same pa din. Wala pa rin nangyayari. Ang kawawang juan dela cruz ang nagkakaproblema… iikot ng 3kilometer per trip one way. At kung minamalas pa delikado at walang ilaw sa daan. Kaya yang camella its a big bull. Same sa global land. Magaling lang.sila.magbenta. kaya mga kapwa ko ofw before kayo invest… pag-isipan.nyo mabuti.

      • Sa global land at sa may-ari ng camella… wag.sana kayo nangangako para lang makabenta kasi hindi ninyo alam ang hirap ng isang OFW tapos lolokohin nyo lang para lang makabenta kayo. Wag na sana.madagdagan pa ang.mga taong aasa sa pangakong napapako.

    • Hi Dennis,

      Anong nangyari sa case mo? Ganyan kasi ang nangyari sa akin at sobrang nagalit ako. Kahit na mag long distance pa ako araw-araw sa office nila para lang mabigyan ng action. Sabi sa akin ililipat daw kami sa ibang lot and sisimulan ulit ang construction pero kelangan pa ng approval from their North Luzon office. Sa ngayon nag-aantay ako ng sagot ni North Luzon office. I have consulted an attorney about this ang sinabi sa akin na kelangan daw gumawa ng demand letter and huwag tanggapin ang turn over ng bahay.

  34. Hi, naka kuha rin ako sa Camella sa Tierra Nevada Subd. Isa rin po akong OFW at nakuha kong lote ay corner, at napili ko na house model ay yon ang pinakopyahan mo syempre. During construciton, wala ang SPA ko dahil nasa probinsya, at pinaubaya ko nalang sa Agent dahil nabaitan naman ako sa kanya. Nagawa na ang house, at ang gusto ko tulad ng model at ang palatandaan ko at ang terrace na car port sa ibaba ay nasa kanan. At ito na ang house nakatayo at ang terrace ay nasa kaliwa!!! nakaka dismaya. At di ko alam kong tinitipid din ang mga materyales nito.

    Ano ang gagawin ko? tila papa uwi pa naman ako para sa bank financing at handovering sa house. Ano ang dapat kong e check sa house bago ko tanggapin?

    Maraming salamat sa mga naka tanggap na ng hadnover house sa camella at paki share naman yong pros and cons para maiwasan ang di dapat.

    • Hi, this seems to be an old post already but I’m planning to get a house in Tierra Nevada. I assume na nakatira kna dyan ngayon? Pwede mo po ba ako mabigyan ng feedback? I will appreciate your help.

      Thanks in advance!

    • hi po kamusta napo ang house ninyo?nakakuha po ako nitong november , kaso wala pa po akong balita sa bank financing kung ano na po ang nangyare. Rfo po un sken …at halos lahat ng katabi ko nakuha nila ang bahay na fully furnished sken lang hindi bakit po kaya? kamusta npo ang house niyo?

  35. I am starting to look for some houses for sale and considering to get one from Camella until I’ve read lots of stories and complaints against them. I’m just wondering if anybody brought their grievances to any agencies or even court justices that will help them settle the problem and make the realtor pay and maybe ceased his business? Is it really hard for each and every filipino to get justice from those who taking advantage from us? Does anyone could imagine how hard to leave your family abroad just to earn and save money to fulfill your dreams? I’m a fellow overseas worker and I know perfectly how it feels. If most of the filipino people now who seems to be trusted to engage business with including the government will just betray and screw us everytime, I’m not gonna be surprised if we’ll gonna hate each other then and cursed our own country.

  36. kukuha din po kami sana ng house sa may bagumbong… any comments kung maganda ba dun… medyo nakakadismaya ksi ang mga nabasa namin dito konti ang positive… thanks.
    mura sana at maganda ang model houses kaso nakakatakot na…

  37. Glad I saw this site … we were already interested on Daang Hari but will now think 10X to be able to take a decision. Such a shame … the vision was excellent but, as expected in the Philippines, only nice and doable in the beginning. Once the vision is translated into reality (and mass-produced a la McDonalds’ Happy Meal) within the perspective of land use and planning (for example, converting farm lands to residential use), finance (and profits and profit margins), operations (logistics, construction materials to use and quality control/maintenance), and management and organizational challenges, it stumbles and will eventually backfire … like the poor quality hollow blocks used to build the houses (read this also somewhere!) I can sympathize with the complaints and frustrations I have read above and it is good that this site seems to serve as a platform. But much that our countrymen are expressive and vigilant, there should really be a more effective way to bring this up to the attention of the developer and authorities (contractor licenses, building permits, etc.) … before poorly constructed houses (and frustrated hard-working Filipinos) mushroom throughout the country. Use the social media network! Publish and share incidents and complaints on the Facebook. Tweet it! Blog it! When information becomes transparent and shared, strong pressure is applied … hopefully, they will deliver (and build and manage) much better, or as is expected.

  38. I have bought a house in Camella Cerritos Daang Hari. Ive heard a lot of things about Camella.i wanted to pull out my money..Do you think guys that I can still get my money???Or do I need Lawyer for this?

    GREEN

    • doon rin kami, ok nman ung mga bahay dun, ung house naman namin almost 4 yrs ng nakatayo ok p rin kahit wlang nkatira, lagi lang binibisita ng parents ko. ok rin nman ung property manager maayos kausap, isa lng ang d ko dun gus2 ung assistant nung property manager, kala ko nung una manager kung umasta kz tsaka gulo kausap, un pla assistant lng dun.

    • tito

      You need more than a lawyer! YOU ALL NEED TO UNITE!

      THEY WILL “NICKLE AND DIME” YOU TO DEATH INDIVIDUALLY – BUT IF YOU UNITE AGAINST THEM – WITH A PLAN – THEY WON’T STAND A CHANCE!

      You guys need to go to the ombudsman, AND/or pool your resources and hire a lawyer – AND you need to go to the TV news stations and “investigador” with PICTURES and with documentation of your collective situation.

      Camella homes is doing this BECAUSE THEY CAN – because they are COUNTING ON YOU, AND YOU, AND YOU, NOT TO DO ANYTHING THAT CAN HURT THEIR BUSINESS OR THEIR POCKETBOOK.

      Believe me, some pix and interviews on ABS-CBN, RPN NEWS or GMA news would open their eyes – – and a CRIMINAL PROCEEDING (NOT A CIVIL LAWSUIT – BUT CRIMINAL CHARGES) FOR FRAUD AND DISHONEST BUSINESS PRACTICE, FALSE ADVERTISING, NEGLIGENCE AND GRAND LARCENY (THEFT) – followed by a civil lawsuit (MAKE IT A CLASS ACTION SUIT – NOT ONLY AGAINST CAMELLA HOMES, BUT ALSO AGAINST MANNY VILLAR AND HIS FAMILY) for damages would probably put them out of business – but they would still be required to fix and/or compensate for the damages.

      YOU SHOULD BE POSTING THIS STUFF ON EVERY BLOG YOU CAN FIND! POST PICTURES – GET A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE! (THEY CAN’T STOP THAT) – AND ON VIMEO AND EVERYWHERE ELSE – LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

      CAMELLA HOMES IS COUNTING ON YOU TO DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING – EXCEPT COMPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHO CAN’T DO ANYTHNG ABOUT IT! LIKE US – OR YOUR MOM – OR YOUR NEPHEW’S UNCLE – -

      I can see most of you reading this and thinking to yourself – “gosh that would be so impolite – I couldn’t do that . . . ” – WAKE UP AND SMELL YOUR LOSSES!

      good luck! and you can be sure I’ll never buy one those dumps!

    • You will need a machine gun to get money out of Camella! Manny Villar would rather spend thousands of pesos to defend his poor business methods than pay ONE peso back.

  39. Having read these blogs really made me sick and so dismayed of buying a camella house. I just started my first monthly amortization on camella cerritos daang hari, and it seem that it’be better to just give up a thousand than loosing a million which is a hard earned money. Now I do not know who to believe, I am confused and so worried of my decision of getting our own place in camella cerritos heights. I can only pray for the best and trust the Lord on this. I cannot bear to see my husband who is working so hard dismayed and not satisfied of the house, and even more i cannot bear to him stresses and brokenhearted of the situation that may happen.

    • you are always better off getting a piece of land, and getting someone you know to build the house. This way you are not putting inflated profits into the greedy hands of a developer like Camella

    • I agree with your sentiments. As a new homeowner at Camella Montserrat, Cebu I can confirm that it is a disappointing and painful experience. Residents here still have no proper water supply, even though they moved in eighteen months ago. The houses are built by a motley crew of contractors who work to very low margins to maximise the profits for the Villar family. Hence, the enormous amount of sub-standard building all over the country by Crown Properties. The builders get just over 50% of the recommended minimum wage. If you have a chance, cut your losses and get out but do not hope to get one peso returned; that is not part of their policy……it would be easier to pull out Manny’s teeth. If you stay with the property try to visit it as often as you can to ‘monitor’ the work. If you can, take a knowledgeable friend with you. Good luck and try to be positive.

    • I felt sad when I read your post. Its March 2012 now. How did things turn out? Did you buy one of the house or withdraw?

  40. Hi to all may kababayans.. wanna ask anyboby here who has bought a house in camella bulakan in bulacan bulacan? Is it true that we as homebuyers are not allowed to inspect the house during construction? I am an ofw and had bad experience with the camella personell in malolos bulacan because of their lack of professionalism & competence when it comes to addressing their clients need..

    • They target OFWs and foriegners for just that reason. They don’t really want you poking your nose into the sub-standard building and making a fuss. They prefer to devote all their energy to aggresive marketing.

      • to

        You need more than a lawyer! YOU ALL NEED TO UNITE!

        THEY WILL “NICKLE AND DIME” YOU TO DEATH INDIVIDUALLY – BUT IF YOU UNITE AGAINST THEM – WITH A PLAN – THEY WON’T STAND A CHANCE!

        You guys need to go to the ombudsman, AND/or pool your resources and hire a lawyer – AND you need to go to the TV news stations and “investigador” with PICTURES and with documentation of your collective situation.

        Camella homes is doing this BECAUSE THEY CAN – because they are COUNTING ON YOU, AND YOU, AND YOU, NOT TO DO ANYTHING THAT CAN HURT THEIR BUSINESS OR THEIR POCKETBOOK.

        Believe me, some pix and interviews on ABS-CBN, RPN NEWS or GMA news would open their eyes – – and a CRIMINAL PROCEEDING (NOT A CIVIL LAWSUIT – BUT CRIMINAL CHARGES) FOR FRAUD AND DISHONEST BUSINESS PRACTICE, FALSE ADVERTISING, NEGLIGENCE AND GRAND LARCENY (THEFT) – followed by a civil lawsuit (MAKE IT A CLASS ACTION SUIT – NOT ONLY AGAINST CAMELLA HOMES, BUT ALSO AGAINST MANNY VILLAR AND HIS FAMILY) for damages would probably put them out of business – but they would still be required to fix and/or compensate for the damages.

        YOU SHOULD BE POSTING THIS STUFF ON EVERY BLOG YOU CAN FIND! POST PICTURES – GET A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE! (THEY CAN’T STOP THAT) – AND ON VIMEO AND EVERYWHERE ELSE – LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

        CAMELLA HOMES IS COUNTING ON YOU TO DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING – EXCEPT COMPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHO CAN’T DO ANYTHNG ABOUT IT! LIKE US – OR YOUR MOM – OR YOUR NEPHEW’S UNCLE – -

        I can see most of you reading this and thinking to yourself – “gosh that would be so impolite – I couldn’t do that . . . ” – WAKE UP AND SMELL YOUR LOSSES!

        good luck! and you can be sure I’ll never buy one those dumps!

      • Ron Nolan, how about asian land? may problema rin b dun..? my plan kc kmi kumuha ng house dun…

  41. Sana matagal ko na nakita ang site na ito. Sobra kasi akong nagtiwala sa Camela. Ngayon isa narin ako sa mga buyers na dismayado sa camella. This December 2010 huling bayad ko na para sa downpayment. Ang usapan after 30 days ng huling bayad okay na to move in. Hay ayon nalaman ko na nihindi pa sinisimulan ang pagconstruct ng house ko, at June pa raw ang turnover at after 40 days pa to move in! Nakakaloka. At eto pa, nung una usapan namin sila ang mag aasikaso ng pagtransfer ng house ko to pag ibig financing, ayun wala ring nangyari at ako ang nag aasikaso ngayon ang masama pa kinuha nila sa pagibig ang msvs ko ng hindi ko alam, september pa pala nasa kanila di man lang ako sinabihan. 4months ko na rin nirerequest yung mga requirements ang tagal bago binigay. Too late na for pag-ibig application ko. Hay iniipit nila ako ngayon pra mag in-house. No way! Ang laki kaya interest nila sa inhouse! I’m willing to sign-in to any petition against camella just let me know kung kanino coordinate.

  42. ANy comment po sa Lessandra Bacoor. Nag start na kaming mag hulog and as promise itatayo daw yung house kapag naka 15% na kami na hulog. under land development na po ngayon yung phase 5 kung saan kami kumuha kasi medyo mura pa at pre selling.
    may katotohanan po kaya yung sinasabi nila na itatayo yung house after out 15% down payment?

  43. hi, hindi ako ang nakabili ng house and lot kundi yung sister in law ko.. awa ng dyos.. sankaterbang problema ang kinakaharap nila ngyn. OFW silang magasawa and kami yung nagiinspect ng house nila ngayon.. buti nalang nakakuha kami ng architect para magbantay.. ang problem ngayon nawala ng contractor ang susi ng bahay nila.. tapos yung dalawang CR sa 2nd floor twice na ni FLOOD TEST pero nagleleak padin.. anung klaseng water proofing ba nilagay nila.. super sub standard ng mga materials.. punta kami sa camella malolos tomorrow to talk to the engr in charge.. sana umayos sila kung ayaw nila magkagulo..

  44. at least kto may nkuhang bahay, ako wala !pra kong tanga na bayad ng byad. after all these years nalaman ko na yun 1st whole year lang ang pumasok sa camella. eh san napunta yun bayad na pinadadala ko sa kanila tru money exchange? nagpakahirap ka sa abroad dhil tpos lolokohin ka lang nila! im not done, i need to know wher my money go!!!!

  45. i have a similar situation, kami naman ay nasa CAMELLA HOMES LESSANDRA sa BACOLOD CITY.

    eto ilan sa mga promises nila:

    1. after mabayaran mo na a certain percentage of the downpayment start na construction.
    -BAYAD NA FULLY PAID ANG DP WALA PA RING CONSTRUCTION na NANGYARI

    2. after about 2-3 payments of amortization ready to move in na.
    -NAKA-6 months na nagbabayad ng AMORTIZATION wala pa ring construction so paano kami mag move in????

    3. Matttansfer din daw sa PAG-IBIG financing
    -HANGGANG NGAYON WALA PA RIN SILA APPROVAL FROM PAG-IBIG, could this be that the company is ILLIQUID???

    kung nagpatayo na lang sana tayo ng raw house ngayon, malamang tapos na in 2-3months time. WALANG KWENTA ANG CAMELLA!! MANLOLOKONG KUMPANYA!! IPAPAKALAT PO NATIN ITO SA KAHIT NA ANONG WEBSITES AT MEDIA MAKAKAASA PO KAYO!!

    4.

      • toy natindog na ang balay mo!!nugay na angal!!hindi ka gna intu sg camella,Its only 3 yrs but look at the development,,,its ,,very fast,,because camella wants to answer the demands of the buyers,im also an homeowner,and i really like camella bacolod,,very nice,,,

  46. disgrasya na…bkt now ko lang to nabasa mga comments nila? kumuha ako ng unit somewhere in Valenzuela for 1.4m, naka 11 months hulog na ako for a 20%dp payable for 12 months. kung nabasa ko lang to noon pa..tsk.tsk.tsk..

    • ako din now ko lng nabasa laht ng comment na to,,thnx sa nag inform skin..act hold plng n 10k nagagawa ko s property s malolos..kaso syang din db.. kapag RFO units mas lalong tinipid cguro materials nun db??

  47. I just wonder if the honorable owner of Vista Land is aware of these complaints..it appears not..Whew..im also a buyer of a soon to be constructed house of camella ( Grande Vita2). Dear lord..pls help me not to suffer the same fate as the complaints above. I’ve been eating 1.5 times a day to save for this project..

  48. Nabasa ko na itong site dati pero kinailangan kong kumuha ng bahay ng mabilisan nung nagbaksyun ako last year kasi one month lang. Ngayon, naka 9 months na ako sa 20% DP but all this time, hind namin malaman kung ano status ng loan namin sa bangko na sila ang nag-aayus. Basta’t binigay namin lahat ng requirements at yung kausap namin na Sales Admin ay hindi naman ng-uupdate sa amin. Nagsesend ako ng email pero di sumasagot and if ever sumagot, dinidisregard yung tanong ko at focus lang sa kung ano ang kelangan nila.

    Naghinala na ako so pinapuntahan ko yung lugar sa mother-in-law ko and much to our dismay, ibang model ng bahay ang nakatayo dun sa lote na tinuro samin. Instead of Drina, Carmela which is smaller, has lesser rooms and fewer bathrooms. We have in our position the docs and quotation that we are buying the Drina Model and we are religiously following the payment scheme for it. But how we end up getting the Carmela Model, no one has provided us an explanation yet.

    Pabalikbalik na yung mother-in-law ko sa Camella Office sa Novaliches, Bayan kaso wala kaming makuhang impormasyun. Kung kanikanino kami pinapasa kesyo yun daw ang incharge pero lagi naman wala at di sumasagot sa cellphone.

    This could be just the tip of the iceberg. I don’t even know now if the smaller house belongs to us kasi under investigation pa rin daw hanggang ngayon.

    We are really worried, confused, dismayed and angry at how we are being treated by the Staff and Camella in general. A short message telling us that we were not approved for Drina and thus we are getting the Carmela would have been acceptable but it seems now that not only will they take your joy of finally owning a home, they will also take the decision themselves as to what house model they will erect on your lot and not inform you about it!!!

    I hope these are not the signs of more things to come….Gracious God please help us.

    • Dear Ram,

      I’ve read you’re post (please have a look at my post “Dennis” date is Sept. 20, 2010)…you will see that we have the similar situation…I’m an OFW here in UAE…honestly I have given up my case with them…natalo ako ng 400k…pero if there is a way para mabawi yun naihulog namin gagawin ko yun…any ideas?

      Thanks & regards,

      Dennis

      • Dennis,

        I read your post and yes we have similar problems. It’s been a year since I posted my issue with Camella and a lot has happened. In the end I just settled with what was offered to me because there are not much options to choose from, and I really like the location.

        Camella admitted that the contractor made the mistake of erecting the wrong house on our lot after I threaten them with a lawsuit. I was offered to be transferred to the only available lot in the community which has a bigger lot size – 50 sqm bigger.They sales talked me to believing that they gave give me 50% discount off the lot value, the other 50% was borne by the contractor for their mistake. In the end, I ended up getting a bigger lot size. I did the math and I just asked for a longer term and lesser monthly compared to the original term which would be difficult for us to pay.

        My house is in the finishing stages now and will be ready before end of the month. The downpayment, plus the additional difference due to the increased lot size, I already completely paid last September but Camella has since stopped depositing our checks. Our bank loan is still not approved, not because we are not qualified but because Camella is still in the process of correcting the paperwork. Apparently, their records still reflects my old lot. Presently, I and the bank are waiting for Camella to provide us the final paperwork so our loan will be processed by the bank. I hope that everything will turn out fine and we can move-in asap, before my vacation this coming May.

        I think it’s not worth it to fight with Camella. They will just ignore you and if you opt to fight for your right as a customer, it will only be a nightmare. I was researching about my chances of winning if I sue them back when I was, like you, thinking of getting a refund. They will not handover the money to you, of course, as they have an army of lawyers. One guy who was successful enough to get his refund from Camella took all the way to the Supreme Court to get it, after years of hearing the case. Us OFWs don’t need it as we already are stressed with our work and think about the expenses and chaos this will create in our lives.

        Wish all will be well with you and and the many others who have the same problems as ours.

        Helpful tips to Camella customers: keep your expectations low!

  49. I will be doing a trip this weekend in lessandra heights. OMG so hindi pala matatapos agad yung bahay within a year? My god buti nakita ko website na to. Maghahanap na lang ako ng ibang provide.

    Guys, ishare naten to. My thoughts dahil naubos pera nya kakampanya eto kinakahoy nya sa mga nagbabayad.Ano ba yan!

  50. OMG, I have the same problem, I’m soo soo stressed out over Camella.
    kaka purchase lang namin ng asawa ko ng bahay from Camella last oct2009, we have been paying our down payment kase nga monthly ang ginawa namin, the house is about 4.5mil sa Provence Malolos, Bulacan, hayy and guess what hindi daw nila makita ung payments namin mula Nov. can you imagine mag Feb na and we’re still getting the same response. I don’t know what to do, kung alam ko lang na ganito sana hindi na ako bumili ng bahay sa Pilipinas.
    Binigay ko naman lahat ng request nila- transaction receipt evrymonth, deposit slip lahat pinadala ko, lahat ng proof na nag bayad kami pero hindi parin nila makita.
    pumunta dun ang asawa ko today to ask if meron ng update sa account namin , alam nio kung ano binigay nila.. a bill, bill daw ng babayran namin sa interes kase hindi raw kami nakapag bayad since October. I can’t blame my husband if that time talagang nag wala xia sa office nila kase naman buh naman naawa na ang asawa ko sa akin kase kayod kalabaw ako dito sa Canada tapos parang ganun ganun lang sila mag sabe na hindi nila makita ang pera. Until now wala pang results kung ano na ang ngyayari sa account namin. I emailed main office pero walang reply.

    • naayos nyo ba yung problem nyo sa payment nyo? nakita daw ba yung mga binayad nyo? medyo worried lang din kami ng husband ko kasi we are planning to get one unit sa malolos provence. May I know kung ano name ng agent nyo dito?

  51. hi me, I will ask my husband if he can go to Mike Enriquez sa Imbestigador hahaha, hayy tinatawanan ko na lang ang problema. I feel bad for my husband kase xia ung kailngan na humarap sa mga alang kwentang employee ng Provence Malolos nakikipag away, debate etc. etc..
    Hindi pwedeng mawala ang pera lalo na at may proof of deposit ako mismo galing BDO. I hope everthing will be OK., kase its my dream house I always wanted a house, my home sooo I’m hoping for the best.. I’m only 26 years old bata ko pa dami ko na problema, hahaha

    • aww. opo ang bata niyo pa po, pero meron po talaga kayo point para maghabol kasi you have all the proof, buti nga natatawanan niyo pa yan, I live in the same subdivision, actually nandito po ako ngayon, madami po talaga mga reklamo dito, kami din may problems sa haus namin

    • yup po maganda naman talaga, wala ka naman talaga ma say sa surroundings kasi very presentable talaga, yun nga lang substandard talaga ung mga gamit nila sa pagco construct ng houses, safe naman for now, although Ive heard of rumors na may nanakawan na, I’m not sure if it’s true. most of the houses here e walang tao kasi halos OFW may ari,

  52. For D… Ganyan dn cnabi sa kin 1 yr lang daw pumasok na bayad ko sa knila kya knansel na yun account ko. Sinungaling ang mga yan! May mga resibo ako! Eh san napunta pera ko?

  53. Omg I can’t believe what Im reading here but Im thankful na nakita ko itong site.All this time Ive been really wanting to own a camella house in Palo Leyte. I hope meron taga dun na mag post dito kung ok ba ang construction dun sa Camella Leyte kasi from what Ive read sa website almost sold out na nga.Im based abroad so limited lang din alam ko. now Im thinking wether to construct a house in my parents’ land. My mom is currently on the process of transferring the title to me. Yeah it seems cheaper if i will ask ppl to construct nalang.Ang gusto ko lang is to live in a nice community at syempre mag solo naman sana.

    • Ate chloe wag mo munang ituloy balak mo.
      kasi walang tubig (at ang dami pang mga reklamo, try mong magtanong sa mga homeowner na nakatira na). alam mo: ang daming nainganyo sa camella leyte, kasi ang ganda ng location (mountain view) tapos ang lawak ng mga daan. ang ganda din ng landscaping sa harap with matching guard house. Pero camella, bakit naman yong pinaka basic pa ang inyong nakaligtaan (tubig). sayang.

      • Hello there! thanks for replying to my post. Much to my dismay. Talagang gusto kong makakuha ng opinyon from a Camella Palo homeowner. Kumusta naman kaya ang response ng contructor nila sa mga complain. Normal nalang siguro if may mga problema but I hope na maayos naman na pinakikinggan ng Management nila.I hate it if pinagpapabalik balik kayo dun lalo na katulad ko na based abroad, kapamilya ko lang ang mag aasikaso in case. Anyway Pls tell me more about the situation in Camella Palo.

  54. Imbyerna, sad to say sa akin hindi ko na xia pwede e pull out dahil naka pirma na kami, kung sana pwede ko lang cancel lahat matagal ko na ginawa kaya lang wala na ako magagawa kung sakali man na e cancel ko ang bahay mapupunta lang sa kanila ang lahat ng pinang down ko, kaya i decided na ituloy na alng…

    • Hi paano po if di ko itutuloy, tapos ko na po mabayaran ang DP at nka6mos a sa amortization kasi di pa approved ang bank loan. pwde po kaya maghanap ng buyer tapos pabayaran nlang ang nagastos ko pwde po ba ganun pa assume nlang sa iba? thanks

  55. Holy Cow!!!di pala ako nag iisa sa mala impyernong situation sa camella…last oct.2010 pa ng matapos DP ko sa kanila pero hanggang ngayon 30% pa lang completion ng unit…ang dami pa nilang dahilan…kahit kunting ulan sinama pati sa dahilan ng delay…susubukan ko na ngayon magpadala ng letter at e-hold yong payment hanggat walang formal confirmation sa turn-over ng unit…sa tingin nyo mag work kaya eto?

  56. Tama ka me, to donix wag mo e hold ang payments mo dahil gahaman ang management ng camella, maki pag argue kaman, lumuha ng dugo, tumawag ng bathala wa epek sa kanila un hehe. Ang pinaka magandang paraan is sundin lahat ng sinasabe nila para lagi kang may papamuka sa kanila na sila ang hindi sumusunod sa kontratang sila mismo ang gumawa. For sure ang sasabihin nila sayo pag pina hold mo ang payments ” Sir eto po ang kulang ninyo( sabay abot ng papel )kulang mo mortgage ng bahay add na namin pati ang interes ng hindi po pag bayad sa nakaarang bwan” tas pag nag amok ka sasabihin sayo ” Sir punta na alng po kayo sa accounting” pag punta mo ng accounting sasabihin naman sayo ” sa admin ka pumunta” hanggang lumubog na araw ang ending still the same you have to pay kung mag kano man ang na kwenta nila, Very sad.. :-(

  57. Naku manuel villar, ayusin mo itong kumpanya mo. Hindi magiging maganda kahinatnan ng political career mo kapag ganito. Isipin mo, sangkatutak na masa na ang mga nagrereklamo dito.

    Piece of advice lang, gawan mo na ng paraan ito sa lalong madaling panahon kung gusto mong maging Presidente balang araw.

  58. hello sorry sa mga nangyari senyo sa pagbili nyo sa camella. i am a satisfied owner of martina H&L at Tierra Del Fuego, Gen. Trias Cavite.
    wala akong naging problema sa bahay or sa pagkayari. ang problema lang eh yung amoy ng babuyan sa katabing lugar.

  59. Recently moved into home in Montserrat Cebu. Shocked by the quality of work , best way to describe is Poor at best. Too many complaints to list, the materials used in house are very poor. Paint is faded and cracked. Fixtures and paint work inside very poor. Every step on stairs damaged and need to be painted. Camella make promises but never deliver. Always a excuse. When contractors come to fix they have no materials to fix because camella will not supply. They charge you but cannot supply a quality home, not just mine several throughout the sub-division. Try calling to get fixed and they dont answer or return your calls. VERY DISSAPOINTED AND WILL NEVER BUY A CAMELLA HOME AGAIN. Better off trying to build one yourself because it will be better than the one they build you.

  60. ofw homeowner po ako sa camella leyte.
    DEC. 15, 2010 first batch na nag move-in about 20 home owners ang nag move-in na sa ngayon.
    ito ang major problem sa ngayon:
    1. walang tubig- dahilan nila kasi daw ni require sila ng lmwd(water district) na mag construct ng Tanke. (sabi mag construct sila by March 15-ewan kun kilan matapos). Pero, dapat sana inuna nila tubig. Ang dami na naman nilang natanggap na pera, almost sold out na mga units (more than a hundred units).
    2. yong drainage system hindi pa fully operational. kaya ang tubig na stagnant sa canal, kaya ang daming lamok (pwede kaya itong ireklamo sa DEPT. of health?). Malamang din ang mga siptic tank puno na ng tubig kasi meron siyang overflow connection sa drainage canal).
    3. at ang dami dami pa kapalpakan sa constructiob ng bahay (tumutulo sa loob ng bahay, pinapasok ng daga sa my pinto kasi ang laki ng clearance sa baba).

    At ang mga hi_ _yopak my plano pang gumawa ng extension.

    • update on camella palo leyte:
      as of March 04, 2012:
      1. Still no water suppy.
      2. street is flooding during heavy rain. Drainage system still incomplete

      requested general manager to meet with home owners today. General manager were no show during home owners meeting last sunday 26Feb12.

      any advise on what to do….. pls. help….

  61. Hi, Im a new buyer of Camella house at Lessandra Heights via Daang Hari.
    Meron po ba sa inyo na kumuha din ng bahay dun and meron po ba kayo naging problem? Hindi po ako OFW so I’ll definite monitor yung mga updates sa bahay ko. 4 months pa lang yung nababayaran ko sa DP.

  62. guys, know your rights. under maceda law, correct me if im wrong, if you are continuously paying your amortization for 2years and the project is still not delivered, you can get a FULL REFUND of your money. OR if you are already paying amortization continuously for 2years and you decide to cancel, you are subject to 50% REFUND, and 5% for each year after 2years. Kindly consult HLURB or any legal persons regarding this matter.

    Dapat maturuan ng leksyon itong CAMELLA homes na ito under VISTALAND of Manny Villar! grrrr….

    • Kung alam niyo lang kung ano ang values jan sa camella.
      “Magtipid, magtipid, magtipid.” Kawawa din mga sales admin at accounting jan. Ang konti nila compare sa dami ng customers. Kaya di makakapagkaila na poor quality ang units na binibenta nila. Kasi nga ang motto ay MAGTIPID.
      COST CONSCIOUSNESS.

    • thank you for your post as i am stress with cammella homes bacolod lagi almost 3 years na kami nagbabayad hindi pa natuturnover ang bahay namin at pangit ang bahay kaya di pa namin accept maraming repairs tsaka wala kaming car port nilagyan tapos ipapabayad sa amin. Sa mga magbabalak na kukuha ng bahay di ko nirerecommend ang camella. Ksi kumuha kami sa Camella Mandalagan but very disappointed.

  63. ^correction po- if you are continuously paying for your amortization for 1 year and project is not delivered, you can demand for FULL REFUND. fyi

    For direct consultation please contact the HLURB Legal Services Group at 920-8749 / 927-3061 or via e-mail at lsg@hlurb.gov.ph

    Dont keep quiet. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

  64. kailan ba mabigay ang contract sa camella kung nakjabyad na ba buo or 70 percent down. kakalito kasi. like for example balak ko bili model house 4 million downpayment ko 3 milllion tapos remaining balance na 1 million bayaran ko for 7 months too pay. in this case pano ba yung contract ibigay ba agad.

  65. totoo ba lhat ang mga nabasa ko d2?
    my gosh! kakakausap lng nmin s isang ahente pra kumuha ng bhay at lupa! Buti nlng nabasa ko ito.
    Mas maigi pa nga siguro kumuha nlng ng lote at kmi na mismo ang magpagawa ng bhay. At least alam nmin ung mga ginamit na materials at ang pagkakagawa.
    Salamat sa site na ito at naliwanagan ako.

    Makikipag arrange nlng kmi sa agent ng Sta. Lucia Realty to get the lot.

    Thanks s lhat! Save by the bell kami.

    Good luck sa inyong lhat! at sana maayos nila ang problema nila sa inyo!

    • Naku mam, mas sasakit ang ulo mo sa sta.lucia,, hindi p[a maibigay title,, kasi walang bumubili sa knila gaaano.. at take note, hindi elavated ang lugar,, kay mag isip isip kayo muna..

    Sana mabasa nyo to Camella Bacolod!

    • tinkerbel, sa CAmella Meridian din ang bahay ko at sangkatutak din ng sama ng loob ang ibinigay nila sakin. Kilala ko yang bobong farah na sinasabi mo last ng umuwi ako last year dala dala ko ung ledger na inimail sakin ni farah sa computation nya ang magiging amortization ko after kung mag down ulit P450,000 eh magiging P32,000 nlang from 2nd year to 10 year.
      So ng umuwi ako pumunta ako sa opisina nila at dala ko un ledger na inimail nya sakindahil mag da down sana ako ng mas malaki para ipa recompute ko un amortization ko dahil naka in house financing nga ako. Sabi ko pwede bigyan mo ulit ako ng bagong copy ng ledger. nag print sya when she hand me a copy nagulat ako at ang computation mali sa bagong print out nya P42,000 hindi P32,000 sabi ko farah hindi yata match itong ledger mo sa ledger na inimail mo sakin almost8 months ago. Aba sabi ba naman sorry mam nagkamali ako ng computation dyan sa una kung inimail ko sayo. Sabi ko farah 8 months ako mo pa itong inimail sakin hindi ka man lang nag email ulit for correction kundi pa ako umuwi sa pilipinas at pumunta sa opisina ninyo hindi ko pa malalaman na mali pala itong computations na pinanghahawakan ko. You have to be sentitive sa mga pinadalala mong email e review mong mabuti bago mo ipadala farah were talking about millions here tapos ma sorry ka lang sakon. I thought na ang amortization ko for 2nd year to 1oth year eh P32,000 na lang yun pala P42,000 something kung di ka mabwisit. I talk to their GM na si Mike. Ang sagot lang sakin okey I will have a sit with farah regarding this matter.

      • shet! camella bacolod din ako. fully paid last april 2011 lot only. they promised within 6 months me titulo na ko. march 28, 2012 na ngayon wala pa ring deed of absolute sale and title. pabalik-balik na ko dun, ang lagi lang sinasabi “on process” my gawd! i need the title para maka-loan ako ng pang construction. malapit na ko masiraan ng bait. baka sa susunod na punta ko doon, hindi ko na alam ang magagawa ko.

    • Yes Mam totoo ka po.. Si Ms. Farah aguy po ganyan din po ang situation inuuwian po namin from Cambodia ang dahil lang dito. Saan po kayo mam kasi sa Camella Mandalagan worst service of all. Gusto ko pong iimpose ang Maceda Law Real Estate pagbalik ko next month kasi 2 taon na kami nagbabayad ganun pa din kaya kung di pa turn over at di gawan ng aksyon

  71. tinkerbel and frey pariha tayo ng hinaing..pwdi bang mabalik ang money nmin kc worried na tlaga ako sa mga nangyayari..hndi nla ginagawa ang trabaho nila..ang house nmin skeleton pa tlga!!

  72. Well, kami ng mr. ko nakakuha ng hous sa CHN2A sa SanJose Delmonte, Bulacan…grabe dina ng pgod at stres ibinigay ng Camell sa amin ng Mr. ko. We finished paying the full d/p April 2010, as per their contract contsruction will start as soon as d/p is pd…kung hindi ko pa sila inaway at kinulit..contruction will not start on our house. However, it toll a year for the house to be built dahil phinto-hinto sila gumawa…they will continue constructing the house kapag inawway ko na naman sila..we wanted sa pag-ibig financing but camella told us thier slot for 2010 with pag-ibig is used up and we have to wait indefinitley as to when a new slot willl be opened foor them..we opted for in-house financing..so far..natapos an ang construction at we are scheduled to move in this mid-May 2011. … It’s really stressful to get a H/L with CAmella..poor customer service..

    • Hi MBC, me and my husband also bought a house sa SJDM, Bulacan. Sa Carissa Northridge kami bumili sa Tungko. Bria homes ung name ng developer. Kamusta yung house and nakuwa mo na ba title mo? I hope you can enlighten me. I’m so worried after everything I’ve read. Dugout pawis ang I invest namin sa house medyo malaki ndin yung nailalabas namin.

  73. Mga Kabayan,

    Paadvise naman tungkol sa Camella Homes Santiago,Isabela.So far wala pa akong nakikitang comment galing sa lugar na yun.Balak kse namin bumili dun ng H+L tapos bigla ko nabasa tong blog na to.OFW rin kaming mag-asawa at balak ng umuwi for good kaya okay sana magkabahay na.Kaso kabado na ako dahil natatakot mangyari rin samin mga naranasan nio.Situation is ready for occupancy na ung bahay.Pay nalang kulang.Kaso with all the problems ive read here so far,ayoko naman ng substandard ang ginamit at tinipid lang ang bahay.Kindly advise.Salamat po.

  74. Im a homeowners nang Camella here in Bulacan, payong kaibigan lang mga tol, alam kong di biro ang magpundar nang bahay at lupa sa ngayon dahil hindi biru ang babayaran mo, sa Pag kuha at pag iinvest nag bahay at lupa, maraming factor ang dapat isa alang alang,,

    1. Kapag hahanap ka nang house and lot,, dapat alam mo yung mga term na ito,,.. Pre-selling.. Ready to Occupancy.. at Build to sell.. minsan kasi dito nag kaka lituhan tayong mga OFW sa ganitong mga term,, kapag pre-selling,. alam dapat at open ang mind natin na sa possibilities na hindi agad ma construct ang bahay mo kasi nga lote pa lang yan at hindi pa well develop,.natural,, karamihan pa halos nang Subdivsions nanag Camella ay tlagang tinatambakan para siguradong Storm Ready sila, it takes time.. mag hihintay ka talaga.. at dapat aware ka doon,, Hindi kasi tulad nang ibang developer,, yung palayan o bakanteng lote.. lalagyan na nang kalsada, yun pwde nang tayuan kaya mura,, madaling gawin ang bahay.. kasi nga nag mamadali sila.. after a years,, kawawang mga nilalang,, ayun hanggang dibdib ang baha.. kasi yun ang kabayaran nang pagmamadali. Sa Camella kasi noong i-diniscuss sa akin yung gnung plano,, naunawaan ko na di ko dapat madaliin ang pagpapatyo nang bahay ko, kaya heto, kahit ilang bagyo dumaan sa amin,, di naman kami binabaha.. yung katabing subdivsions namin ang binabaha,, dahil doon kasi hindi man lang sila nagtambak..

    2. Ready for Occupancy,. ito yung pwede nang lipatan,, as in mag bibilang ka lang nang ilang araw, maayos mo lang mga required mo na documents, at approved ka,, makakalipat kana.. siyempre,, huwag naman po tayong tanga sa sobrang excited eh.. di mo man lang papa inspect sa mrunong yung bahay.. tapos bago mag turn over dapat alam mo mga warranty mo at karapatan mo kapag may nakita kang problema.. ang hirap din nang naging experience nang kaibigan ko noong nagpatayo siya nang bahay sa kanila, gumastos siya nang malaki para bahay niya,, dahil ayaw niya sa subdivisions, ayun di nga siya nilulubog, yung paligid naman niya ang baha.. letcheng buhay din diba.. after a year, ayun.. pasira na rin ang bahay niya dail.. niloko siya ng contractor niya, kaya lang wala na yun,, sino hahabulin niya,, Dito sa Camella, kahit paano may habol kami legally kapag may naging problem under sa contract.. yun ang wise thinking..

    3. Build to sell.. ito naman yung kapag ang unit na kukunin mo ay nag start na siyang i-construct, (madalang din yan sa Camella..) lagi silang nauubusan nang ganyan kasi nga marami pa rin ang nag papa reserve,,)pero kapag may nakuha kang ganitong package, alam mo rin dapat na hindi porket tapos na bahay mo.. keso hodang 80% na nahuhulog mo, mag kukumayog ka na lumipat, dapat alam mo rin ang ang tentative date nang Turn over, at liveable na siya that time, may kuryente at tubig,, yun ang dapat alam mo rin.. siyempre ikaw itong si kaykay,, kasi gusto mo agad mag kabahay.. dapat alam mo ang salitang malinaw na pag uusap,. binigyan ka nang Diyos nang freewill dapat gamitin mo yun..

    PAYO MGA TSONG,, marami naman talagang Problema sa Pilipinas,, kahit hindi sa Camella, meron nga dyan Hallelujah,, yung mismong buong block nila, hindi nakapangalan sa kanila,.nakakatakot yun.. at aminin na natin, na sa pagkuha nang bahay, dapat alam mong obligasyon mo rin na subaybayan ang mga ginagawa nila sa bahay mo, kasi ikaw ang titra doon, hindi sila.. kaya dapat alam mo ang development nila. Yun ang trabaho mo kasi pera mo nakataya dyan..

    Huwag lang kayo kukuha nang ahente dyan sa Kalsada, or sa mall, or saan mang lupalop,, ingat din tayo sa ibat ibang broker group na napakaraming binebenta na subdivisions, mahirap silang hanapin para ma assist ka nila sa mga tanong mo kasi nga karamihan sa knila, nasa ibat ibang site,, sa experience ko,, mas ok makipag ugnayan sa mga In-House Direct na Sales Group., it means wala silang binebentang iba kundi isang Developer lang,, mas updated sila, at focus doon sa lugar,, Mas ok kung makakuha ka nang Agent na doon mismo nakatira sa Camella or isa siyang Homeowners,. kasi alam na nila ang rules at paano ka matutulungan kasi taga doon sila mismo..

    Nabalitaan ko na rin ang tungkol doon sa isyu nang mga HOA doon sa Camella Malolos, sila mismo, hindi na sila inintidi nang Mayor noong nag rereklamo sila kasi wala naman silang proper ground para i-demanda nila ang Camella, yung Reklamo nga nila,,. hindi man lang umabot sa usaping legal kasi, wala silang maipakitang niloko sila nang Camella, Hanggang sa nabalitaan ko, na yung mismong mga pasimuno nang group nila, nag aaway sila mismo, kasi hindi naman sila nag kakaintindihan sa nirereklamo nila,. Pinapaalis na nga mismo yung promotor nang reklamo doon,, full refund, pero bakit ayaw pa nila umalis kung may problema talaga sa Camella? kasi nga wala silang choice kundi OK TALAGA SA CAMELLA.. PERIOD

  75. Minsan Cause din nang delay ang Meralco,, super bagal nila mag kabit nang kuryente, bayad na ang Camella, na popolitika pa.. Sa buiding permit, marunong sumonod ang Camella, yun ang napansin ko, kasi noong nanalo ang Mayor na bago sa Bulacan sa malolos, ayun, hold niya lahat muna.. inspect -inspect muna.. sumunod naman ang Camella ayun sa nabalitaan ko na kapitbahay ko na homeowners, after 3 weeks,, ok na lahat ang Building permit,, ganun ang proseso.. Siyempre,,MAG REREACT na naman ang iba,, delay na naman daw nang Camella,,. pero hindi nila alam na may mga third parties involed,, kaya nagkakaganun.. yun ang sistema nang politics,,. susunod naman ang camella, kasi they are following naman doon napag kasunduan.

  76. REALLY REALLY REALLY BAD SERVICE at Camella Caloocan-Novaliches NORTH branch…heartless…may mga anak ka mang affected wala silang pakialam. Nakakadulas na pavement-sidewalks may pondings kase di slant ang pagka-semento. Fench hinges, isang buwan pa lang natatangal na. Firewall hindi pala “waterproofed” as promised. WATER supply, MADUMI at MABAHO. ELECTRIC supply, temporary muna (sus! ang subdivision dapat complete amenities before pa magbenta!)

    • to juan, pareho din po kami ng sentimento ng mga nakapag purchase sa carissa homes project caloocan north….yun pong cr hindi maayos ang pag kabit ng tiles kaya nung paglipat namin merong tubig na naiipon sa isang corner na pwedeng makadulas at maka disgrasya….dysfunctional po ang ibang outlet ng kuryente and the worst may leak ang tubig almost two months bago maaksyonan … pag ka ayos naman nila nung backjob sa leak … nakatiwangwang naman ang hindi sementado at hindi pinturadong mga gawa…. matapos mong mag tiis tiis na mapulbo pulbohan nung resulta nung na grinder mong bahay na mistulang naoperahan ang mga dingding at sahig… kina kailangan mong mag ff/up nang mag ff/up minsan hindi pupunta ang contractors sa availability nyo wala man lang pasabi….kahit ikaw yung tipong tao na puno ng pasensya pagdating sa pamilyang camella/carissa eh mauubusan ka ng dugo sa kanila sa pulpol na trabaho…

  77. share nyo naman yung mga pictures nyang reklamo nyo. para po maka decide ako kung kukuha ba ako or hindi, kasi hindi naman ata lahat may problem. depende rin siguro sa constructor ng bahay yan, iba iba din kasi sila.

  78. To Judie, Frey and Tinkerbel…I have consulted the Housing & Land User Regulatory Board with branch office in Iloilo.

    If issues and concerns regarding the house construction (in Bacolod Camella) are not resolved amicably, you can file a complaint before the HLURB to settle the dispute legally.

    Para mas madami tayo, mas malakas ang impact. Just be ready with your pictures as evidences for the reconciliation.

    • Hello just read this site today. Same complaint about my mothers house in camella bacolod. She fully paid last mar2012 and the house was constructed last july and they said it will be finish nov2011 but until now the house is not finish. They got only 2 workers to work on my moms house how thats? We kept on monitoring every week the construction And if you come and visit their office they will point the contructor.they given us many false promises and dates.
      Hope i can get advices where to file this complaint.thanx for this blog

    • naka file na po ba kayo ng complain kung maari sana bigay using maceda law real estate kung ano po update niyo rin po ako para magbigyan ng lesson ng Farah na yan at iba pa

  79. hello po.

    gusto ko po sana humingi ng feedback kung meron kaung alam na on-going problems/ complaints sa Camella Santiago,Isabela branch.
    Balak po namin kumuha dun pero natatakot din kse baka pareho lang sa ibang branches ang mangyare dito. Ready for occupancy na ang ino-offer sa amin.

    Maraming salamat po.

  80. @PinoyHardworking OFW maraming salamat sa paliwanag mo tungkol sa mga termino ng pagkuha ng bahay sa Camella. Kung ganyan talaga ang kalakaran ng camella. Masyadong pabor lahat sa camella ang paraan nayan at wala nang karapatan ang mga homeowner na masunod yung orihinal na kanilang napag-kasunduan. Bago pa man nya ito mapapayag para kumuha ng bahay sa camella. Pre selling man yan or RFO ready for occupancy. Hindi balanse ang paraan at hindi makatarugan sa aming mga OFW na homeowner sa camella. Kung baga, ay kung kelan lang nila gustong simulang ang project o di naman kaya ay pag nangulit kana don lang nila ito gagawin. May record naman sila na almost 1yr yung kontrato for DP dapat na arranges na nila ang requirement para masimulan ang construction ng bahay. ang isang taon ay napaka habang panahon na yan para ayusin ang tambak ng tatayuan ng bahay ilaw tubig koryente at iba pa.
    Ang akin lang naman, kung anong napagka-sunduan ay dapat yung ang masunod, kaya tuloy kung minsan ay lumalabas na may panloloko. Dahil nga hindi tumutugon ang mga taga camella kung anong yung orihinal nilang pag uusap ng homeowner. Binabaliwala nila ang mga reklamo.

    • Ganito po kasi yon, may mga phases po talaga na pre selling na pero di pa po nacoconstruct, may date pa po na sisimulan iyon at maaring kaya di pa pwedeng iconstruct ang house and lot nyo at hindi pa ready ang phase, maaaring di nasesegregate ang mga lots at may date po talaga na nakalaan para umpisahan iyon. Sa subd. po kasi di naman po sabay sabay na gagawin ang mga phases.

      Iyon po ay dapat na inaabiso sa inyo ng inyong ahente dahil alam naman po sa office iyon. Yon ay prinipresell na po para makuha ng client yun kasalakuyang presyo ng package at di pa naman niya kailangang tirahan.

    • mawalang galang lang po, the purpose of this thread is to make other people aware of what’s happening to the developer’s works, if you have nothing to share then I suggest you make yourself busy with some other important things. ;)

  81. huwag sana pagtakpan ang napakalaking kalokohang ito. at sana mag-seminar sila ng agents na pawang katotohanan lang ang mga sinasabi at hindi panay pambobola. yung mga sinabi no pinoyHardworkingOFW eh pawang pagtatakip lang ng problema ng camella (obyus!). lalo lang naturnoff yung mga potential buyers ng Camella (including me).

    magsilbe sana itong aral sa ibang mga developers na tuparin nyo kung ano ang napagkasunduan. sana bumawi ang camella at tugunan ang mga hinaing na ito sapagkat hindi pa naman huli ang lahat. :-)

    • Sir, wag po sanang igeneralize ang lahat ng agents ng camella. Iba iba po kasi ang ugali ng tao, Madami pong ahgents not only in camella na puro false promises ang ibibigay sa inyo, makabenta lang. Ang SOP po wag po basta magtitiwala at maniniwala.

      Para po makasiguro bago magreserve, magtripping po muna, humingi ng official computation sa marketing office, may magbribrief naman po from adminitration office sa inyo kung ano ano ang coverage, inclusion, scope ng package nyo. may pinipirmahan din po na homebuyer conforme ng house specification.

      Wag din po magbibigay ng pera sa ahente para di po maloko, lahat ng payments po dapat sa office, sa cashier at siguraduhin pong may OR. Kung nasa abroad po kayo magsend po kayo ng representative na mapagkakatiwalaan nyo.

      Ahente po ako at nalulungkot po ako sa mga complains ng marami dito.

    • hindi naman pinagtatakpan ang problema sa camella. isa din mo akong buyer at mismo complete name ko nakalagay dito.

  82. my case is;

    nagpurchased ako ng isang unit which is SAPPHIRE sa malolos bulacan but since im from baliuag,bulacan pinakiusapan ko ang ahente ko na kukuha ako ng model sa malolos then lipat sa baliuag…sabi nya sagot nya na ang moving fee.. PERO KASINUNGALINGAN.. isang payment na lang mabubuo ko na ang 15% DP.. pinasa ko lahat ng requirements and docs needed dahil di daw itatayo ang unit hanggat wala ang mga ito.. so i provide.. pero nagtaka ako that time bakit walang ibinigay na OR ang ahente ko.. sabi nya “wala nang OR, naubusan saka nalang kita bgyan after 3 days” (which is nakakapagtaka para mawalan kayo ng OR isang malaking kumpanya ng pabahay?) then pinagbigyan ko.. umabot ang dalawang bwan at wala pa yung OR ko.. tinanong ko sya thru text and even she disregard my calls.. then sabi ko magbabayad na ko.. ABA!! ang bilis magreply, tinawagan pa ko.. at hinihingi pa ang mga penalties ko….pumunta ako ng main office sa malolos, dala ko na ang 2 months payment then mabubuo ko na ang 15% DP..o sobra pa.. but before that i make a sure na meron na tlga akong OR.. so wala pa din.. nagalit ako at naiyak sa gigil dahil wala silang maipakitang OR ng last payment ko.. ASAN ANG PERA KO??? ASAN ANG 54,000 PESOS KO?nakalahata ako na niloko ako ng ahente ko.. i dunno kung san nakarating ang pera ko na matagal kong pinagipunan while working sa japan then i decided to quit… and trying to pull out my money.. it was october 2009… but sad to say di ako nakakuha ng singkong duling sa pera ko… dahil sa mga pinirmahan kong papeles… even though wala pang naitatayong bahay…

    TAKE NOTE;
    dahil sa gusto ko tlaga ng dream house pangalawang quit ko na ito sa CAMELLA.. peste ang mga ahente dito sa BALIUAG..

    tanong ko;

    may paraan paba para makuha ko ang pera ko… how can i assure na close na talaga ang account ko.. i just wondering baka ipinasapo nila sa iba at di man lang ako nakakuha ng kahit anong porsyento sa pera ko..

    pls help me umaasa pa din ako na mabawi ko ang pera ko…

    • ma’am magingat po kayo sa ibang ahente, kung di man po inhouse agents yan baka po under ng mga real estate brokers na sari sari binebenta. Sila po kasi ang nagiissue ng OR nila.

      Sa Camella Malolos po lahat ng payments po may OR. Ahente po ako at di ko po ginagawa ang kukunin ang reservation fee at ako na lang ang magiissue ng OR bawala po samin yan. Lahat po ng reservations at payments sa office po ginagawa at di po totoong nauubusan ng OR. palagay ko po naloko kayo ng agent. Ibigay nyo po yun name sa Malolos office para matanggal po yang agent na yan. Bakit po kasi kayo nagbibigay ng pera sa ahente lalo pa’t walang OR.

      Bago po icancel ang account nyo makakareceive po kayo ng notification at bibigyan pa kayo ng chance isettle. Di po pwedeng biglang ipapasapo nila sa iba yun unit nyo. Cocontakin po muna kayo, papadalan ng notice. Di po kaya pekeng agent ang nakausap nyo?

  83. Early 2010 we just finished our down payment for the camella unit in bacoor, we already paid 160k for a year. Sabi kasi kahit makabayad kami ng 10% sa contract prize (and they promise na pre approve na sa bank ang loan) pwede na rfo. Which dun naattract ang hubby ko. Kaya nung natapos namin ang pagbayad we ask for rfo na, pero biglang sinabihan kami na nagbago raw ang decision ng bank that we have to pay another 10% before kami makalipat, di man lang kami sinabihan ng agent nanagkaganun. Pinapahirapan pa kaming kontakin ang agent, after kasi namin magbayad sa kanya ng reservation di na niya kami inaasikaso. Then nagdecide kami na sa may las pinas nalang na unit ang kukunin namin kasi sabi naman nila na pwede raw ilipat ang dp namin dun pero we still have to pay a diff reservation na 20k pero di pumayag ang hubby ko 10k lang ang binayad niya pumayag naman sila then after a month they told us na di raw pala pwede na mailipat ang binyad namin sa ibang unit!!!! we tried to ask for a refund kahit manlang 50% pinaghirapan kasi ng asawa ko yung pera tas gaganunin lang nila, ano sila sosyal na magnanakaw? Is it still possible refund the money? We need help on what to do.

    • ma’am baka di po inhouse agent ng camella ang agent nyo, baka po under ng broker at real estate. Standard po kasi ang price ng camella, may pricelist po sila at samin po ang pagrereserve at pagbabayad hindi po sa agent, sa accounting department po, sa cashier ginagawa ang payments.

      Non refundable po ang reservation fee. Kung ano pong unit ang naireserve e yun na po iyon, may transfer fee po kung ililipat. malamang po yun agent nyo di sinabi sa inyo kung ano ang totoo after na lang po siya sa makapagbenta.

  84. bkit ganun ang camella office s tpat star mall…..wlang considerations s mga buyer…nkikiusap s knila pro never ngbgay ng considerations…ilng years bgo k natirahan ang bhay,den pgtira nmin sobrng dami nmin pinaayos lalo n ang cr…kpg late payment k nmn ng 1mos…ganun n lng kng gipitin k nila…mkikiusap k n ung previous amount muna dhil nagigipit dn nmn kami pro ayw nila tanggapin gus2 i update hanggang s lumaki ng lumaki interes…binbyran nmn ang interes eh,bkit kailngan nla manggipit ng tao..sana mgkarun nmn cla ng m,ga considerations ang mga taga office ng camella north…hndi nmn nmin pinupulot pera,galing maningil pro ung serbisyo nila n palpak di nila pinapansin…

    • sir kaninong ahente po ba kayo bumili? mababait naman ang mga marketing staff sa iloilo isa din akong home owner dun sa glen d.ano po ba ang problema nyo?baka naman matulungan ko kayo.

  86. Thank you so much for your comments! We had a bad feeling about this property and my MIL is interested. You have saved us time and money. It makes me think either buy a lot and build yourself or buy an already built home.

  87. Hello! Isa rin ako sa may malaking problema sa pagkakakuha ng bahay sa Camella Meridian sa Bacolod City. At naniniwala akong palpak at talagang tinipid
    in house financing ako 18% ang interest 10 years to pay. Isang taon kung hinulugan ng mahigit kalahating million ang downpayment at 2 taon ko ng hinuhulugan ang amortization ko.Magtatalong taon na this Sept 2010 ang amortization ko. Andito kami sa U.S ng asawa ko nagta trabaho kung tutuusin mas mahal pa un amortization ko sa Camella kaya sa renta namin ng apartment dito kaya hindi rin namin nasusundan at nakikita kung anung klaseng trabaho ang ginagawa ng mga contractor sa pagtatayo nila ng bahay. Last year umuwi ako para makita naman un bahay. napapayag din akong kumuha ng bahay dun dahil lang sa pinsan ko na may nag alok din sa kanya. akala ko ang ganda ganda ng magiging bahay 3.4M ang TCP ng makita ko parang ang laki nag pinagkaiba sa model house na pinakita nila sakin ang model house lang ang maganda pero un pinakabahay mo hindi. Pagpasok ko sa bahay hinila ko un doorknob ng main door natanggal sumama sa kamay ko un doorknob parang nanlumo ako sabi ko sa isip ko anu ito?bakit ganun? Tapos dinalaw ko ulit un bahay ng makailang araw dahil inireklamo ko un sa Camella office nila kaya nag agree un Eng’r na makipagkita samin dun mismo sa site pagdating namin sa bahay ko may tao sa loob, magulo ang bahay, makalat, tinanong ko kung anung ginagawa nila sa bahay ko aba ang sabi ba nmn noon isang construction worker nag aassemble daw sila ng mga glass window? sabi ko para saan? para sa ibang bahay daw! haha tumaas ang dugo ko sabi eh bakit dito kayo nagkakalat sa bahay at bakit kayo may susi, may dumating ang isang truck para mag unload ng mga babasagin na bintana, pinagmumumura ko sa inis ko halos mapaiyak ako halos gusto ko sisihin pati SPA ko na bakit ganito wala kang alam sa mga nangyayari sa bahay na ito. nakipag usap ako sa GM nila aba ang una ba nmn tanong sakin eh kung na e turn over na daw ba un bahay sakin?sabi ko hindi bakit ibig ba sabihin noondahil hindi pa na e turn over sakin un bahay eh pwede nyonf babuyin at pwede kayong magkalat sa bahay ko eh milyon na ang naibayad ko dyan so ibig bahay ko na yan may karapatan ako dyan. Bakit kako may susi ang mga construction worker? sabi noon isang naabutan namin dun sa loob ng bahay ko un isang foreman daw nila may susi sa bahay ko. Ang tanging sagot lang sakin ng GM. Paiimbestigahan daw nya. Sa awa ng diyos wala nmn nakarating sakin na update kung paano at kun bakit may susi sa bahay ko at dun sila gumagawa at nag aasemble ng bintana para sa ibang bahay. Ung pintura ng bahay ko iba sa kulay na pinili ko ng tanungin nila ako kung anung gusto kung kulay. Ngayon walang gustong umamin kung sino ang nagkamali kesyo un daw talaga ang sinabi kng kulay eh sabi ko magrereklamo ba nmn ako kung yan talaga ang ni request ko. Kung gusto ko raw ipabaga un pintura ng bahay ko in my own expense.Naaawa ako sarili ko umuwi ako dun para makita un bahay na hinuhulugan o tapos ganun ang itsura. Ngayon wala akong choice kundi ipa assume un bahay o inalok ako ng isang ahente ng Camella kung gusto kung mag bank financing para mas bumaba un interest ko na binabayaran. Naguguluhan ako nagsisisi ako nasa ibinangko ko nlang ang pera naihulog ko na sa kanila.

  88. Judie, Frey, Tinkerbel, May71………we are all from bacolod camella….at sa tingin ko….marami ang katiwalian (graft & corruption) within the camella bacolod management kaya nagiging pangit ang quality ng mga bahay. …….. kindly file a complaint at HLRB in Iloilo branch…….let the buwaya and mga tuta ng buwaya be tried in court…..pag uwi ko pilipinas…..hindi ko sila titigilan, fight for what is right…….

    Mag inquire at magreklamu lang kayo dito para dumami ang mga kaso ng mga buwaya n yan….

  89. masasabi ko lng..dpende po sa lugar yan dpende sa mga nagmamanage..try nyo po sa Camella Pangasinan wala po kaming reklamo na home owners..just look for Ms. Rona Roces sya po ang Marketing Manager ng Camella Pangasinan,approachable po sila dun tapos tinutugunan talaga nila ung mga request naming mga home owners..I assure you maganda sa Camella Pangasinan..Just Look for Ms. Rona Roces

    • Tama po! dito sa Camella Malolos wala po kaming naging problema, upon turn over pinainspect po samin ang unit. Nun nagkaron ng leak tinawag namin sa Engr. at mabilis naging tugon nila. Normal naman talaga yun kahit magpacontruct pa kayo sa ibang contractor may punchlisting talaga.

      Kasi depende naman yan sa adminitration, technical department at contractor, per camella branches kasi iba iba yan.

      SOP, alamin muna ang scope at inclusion ng package na babayaran nyo pati specification. Alamin din kung ano nakasaad sa contract at bago naman magreserve very clear naman kung magkano magiging hulog kahit inhouse financing. Ano yun sinasabi ng iba dito na ninanakaw e may quotation sheet naman kung magkano babayaran at OR.

  90. pde po ba hingin ang email address ng camella caloocan north, siena villas. ofw po kasi ako at yung family ko nasa bahay ng hipat ko. e magpapagawa sana sila ng canopy dahil pumapasok ang tubig pag umuulan. yung OIC ng security guard hindi mapaki usapan na kukuha na lang ng Monday kasi nga Sunday. nagmamatigas. wala talagang mga utak. sorry pero kung nasa pinas ako ngayon sa ganong pagiisip malamang bumigay ako e. common sense lang sana. ayaw ipababa yung materyales kasi daw walang permit??? wtf…almost 3M ang bili sa bahay canopy lang ilalagay hassle pa. ganyan ang utak ng mga securtiy ng camella. hirap ng malayo sa pamilya. ito naman camella nag tetake advantage sa mga ofw. maganda daw bahay, maganda nga sa panlabas pero tignan nyo materyales, e wala pa sa 20% ng buong price yung presyo ng materyales. kung sino man po makakapagbigay ng email address nila para mareklamo ko salamat ng marami…Airline03

  91. kung kukuha po kayo ng bahay, mag bank financing po kayo instead of in house, para ang babayaran nyo ay yung bangko. sure na hindi mawawala yung bayad nyo sa mga real state na yan. kung gusto nyo mas madali ang approval, I advise na mag open kayo ng account sa bank na yun basta lagyan nyo ng maganda gandang savings yun or kung may credit card kayo sa kanila make sure na malinis and wala kayong utang, para sila mismo mag-aalok sa inyo ng home loan.
    lagi kayo manghingi ng OR kapag sa mga real state kayo magbabayad.

    MY ADVISE ONCE YOUR HOUSE IS DONE (this is all for security and safety)
    1. Replace the door knob ng lahat ng doors.
    2. Check nyo agad yung roof, kahit hindi pa umuulan, itest nyo agad by pouring water over and over, para atleast alam nyo na kung may tulo/tagas.
    3. Check the walls/stairs(if cement) kung may mga lamat or biyak.

    GOODLUCK! sa ating lahat.

    kumuha din ako sa camella ng TH, sa may lessandra heights via daaang hari.

  92. eto na po update, mabilis na ngayon gawa nila sa camella bacolod. palagay ko narindi na sila sa mga reklamo natin. ganunpaman, tuloy pa rin ang pagmomonitor natin sa mga nakakasusulasok na bagay na ito.

    Caling camella meridian! MORE ACTION PLEASE!! ITAGUYOD NYO PANGALAN NYO KUNG GUSTO NYO MAGKARON NG MAGANDANG REPUTASYON. HINDI PA HULI ANG LAHAT. WE ARE WATCHING YOUR EVERY MOVE.

  93. I never heard about Camella before and thanks to this blog that really gave me a lot of information I need regarding the credibility of this company. I am an OFW from Paris and last night (Oct 29) was the official launch of their new project in Katipunan called Ateneo Tower, the presentation was really convincing and I have no experience in buying condominiums and is interested to invest to one so i considered and paid the reservation fee worth P15,000 and filled out some personal information and signitures. The next day, i felt really bothered and wanted to cancel my reservation and called one of the agent who helped me and told me that i cannot take my money back anymore despite the fact that she has my money on hand and has not sent this to the company thru remittance because no bank is open on week ends. She told me i could change the contract by just choosing to a cheaper one from what i first wanted from 2M to 1M, if i think that it’s too much for me so told her i will think about it, i have not made a call up to this time but all your feedbacks (sub quality materials, delay, and problems after turn over) made me want to just annul my engagement completely, so i really think that the company is only after your money and getting hold of it, and you’re under its spell. I’m glad i didnt lose as much as i would if i continue the contract. I think it’s safer to deal with bank or invest in condos in cash when you can really see and check the finished product instead of installment payment especially those that are not constructed yet.

  95. Good AM! Kabibili lng nmin ng huz sa camella, nkpgbigay n kmi ng P200K for the down payment and by January or February 2012 ung estimated start ng house construction. Actually tingin ko eh medyo mabait nman ung agent nmin sa Camella. He told us kung pano ung process ng construction. Hnd ko lng alam if it is because my husband is a policeman. hehhee! Well, he told us that after we have been able to pay the 10% of the TCP eh ska lng icconstruct ung house. He gave us the name of the accredited contractor ng camella na syang ngconstruct ng model houses. Actually, they have a lot of accredited contractors but it is up to the buyer kung sino ang gusto nila gumawa ng house (of course except kung RFO ung unit.) The agent even told us to hire somebody na mgsusupervise while the construction is ongoing to make sure na everything is in place at hnd substandard yong materials kc eh my mga contractors tlg dw na minsan eh walang septic tank yong house or substandard yong materials though yong binigay nya na name ng contractor eh the most trusted among the rest. Since ayoko naman na masayang ung pnghirapan ko as an OFW eh very cautious kming mg asawa and hopefully eh mging smooth yong construction ng house though we are already expecting some hassles but I hope that it will be manageable.

    BTW, my ksamahan ako sa ofis ngayon, he was a former construction manager so I told him na may nabili me na mga faucets and fixtures na gusto nmin ipakabit in lieu with what the contractor will be providing. Sb nya eh kmi n dw mgkabit kc eh baka dw nakawin lng ng mga trabahador as they have encountered so many cases like that.

    Lastly, our agent told us na if ever may gusto kmi ipabago sa materials like tiles, paint and construction of ceiling eh kausapin dw namin ang contractor directly and ask for an estimate para hindi na kmi mgdodoble gastos. As per the electricals nga pla, make sure na masabi nyo sa contractor yong expected electricity load at yong appliances na you will be using so they can be able to accommodate it sa electrical plan at maiwasan ang overload or worst eh magpareinstall pa kayo ng bagong electrical wirings. As a piece of advise, make sure na someone will look after your house while it is under construction para if ever my problem eh maicoordinate agad. Nkakatakot ang panahon ngayon, kailangan nating pangalagaan ang pnghirapan natin! Hindi tayo basta-bsta namumulot lang ng pera sa ibang bansa..

    • Please READ the contract you signed with Camella customer service dept..pwede ka lang maki alam sa costruction pag na hand over na sa iyo ang unit, hindi ka rin pwede maki alam sa gagawin ng contractor dahil hindi naman sila naki pag contracta sa iyo kungdi sa Camella…logic kung pwede ka maki alam sa materiales na gamitin nila palagay ko maski 5 yrs di na matatapos ang construction mo sa bahay

  96. To po ang email ko sa customer service sa south sa Alabang:

    To whom it may concern:

    I already send it to you (car port design) last oct 29 and today. I also called your numbers many times today but nobody seem to be in the office. I called almost all the numbers that were given to us for more than 30 times today.
    In this regard, I am planning to file a complaint to the head office about the slow service that you have. It seems like there is no work ethics within you. You should take responsibility with your actions …I mean no action on your part.

    This will sound harsh but maybe it is better for you to not to work there. Whoever is responsible in taking the telephone/cellphone calls or the emails. You are too lazy for that job. You don’t deserve to stay there.

    It is just frustrating that we are paying to have a dream house with the poor service that you have. I might even try to report this to the Tulfo brothers. You are not fair. Just imagine that your salary is coming from our payments. To add to the pain is that our neighbors also complained that there were no perimeter fence in our area. There are also other buyers who have the same complaints…you can google this. If you will not change your working attitudes….sigurado malulugi Camella nyan sa inyo.

    Di ako magtataka nung nagpunta kami dyan ay marami nagalit kasi sa tagal nyo umaksyon. Kung kulang kayo sa tao then hire more or mag layoff kayo kasi nasisira ang company nyo dahil sa mga taong tamad.

    Pasensyahan nyo ako kung sobrang galit ko and I am not like this pero kahit kayo nasa position ko sigurado mas malala pa sasabihin nyo.

    Just to remind you yung nangyari sa akin ay nangyari din sa husband ko and many times last week na walang nasagot sa telephone/cellphone lines nyo. So di lang ito nangyari today. Just like what my husband told me. We are also accepting complaints in our school but we make sure to attend to them because customers are always right.

    I hope you learn something from this.

    Re: Poor development and poor management response at Camella Naga!!!

    I bought one Drina unit at Camella Tremezzo Naga, they have completed and turn over the unit last June 2011, also this was already been paid by my bank financing.
    There is an issue with water connections from the main water supply line as there is no water connections ready for each house being built there as this was advised by the Naga water district technician that in Camella it is very difficult find the water connections for each unit as there is no available water connection ready for each unit. Why in the whole world Camella is building a house units without even planning that your home owners will be using water right???
    Also the Camella Naga management and engineer/developer is very poor and unprofessional in dealing and responding to the home owners concern.
    I hope this would not destroy the reputations of Camella as I know Camella Naga is still building Camella Heights and it’s funny as the first Camella Tremezzo is already been poorly built in the first place and their are still planning to build another Camella site.
    Also theft is very common to Camella Naga, how come Camella have so many strict requirements but this kind of theft issue is not being address in the first place, we are paying monthly association dues and this is what we expect for the 24/7 security guards of Camella.
    Also I heard from the other home owners, once water connections is connected to the house unit, another problem would arise, like leaking of the water in the ceilings/walls as the PVC used to the water is local and not original and once the cement is hardened this PVC’s would break up, how come this is happening to the Camella units which is poorly built by your developer?
    I am very disappointed home owner on this and if from the start I will know all of these, I will not bought this unit in the first place.
    I also requested if we can advise the bank as this is already been paid to Camella already to refund all my mortgage payments to Camella as their unit is unacceptable to their homeowners, as it is poorly built and the response we get from Camella Naga management is not acceptable.
    I hope they can provide us feedback on how Camella/Communities management everywhere and especially regarding this Camella Naga poor developments and response to their home owners!!!

    • What’s gotta do whether in-house or not in-house agent we are dealing with? We are still be dealing with Camella people also, don’t we? I am lost because when I found Camella on the web was through my agent not through Camella, so I stuck with them! Does the in-house agents will get another sales commission if they are the one sold the house besides of their salary? Kaya sila masisipag kung sa kanila bumili dahil may commission pa sila? So now we can’t deal with them directly because we have an outside agent!

      Please clarify because ‘di ko makuha ang mga point ninyo sa mga buyer na may mga problema. They all deserve na tulungan, paliwanagan ng maayos (proper customer service) dahil dissapointed na sila at intindihin ang kanilang mga kahilingan bilang customers. I think there are lots of misinformation or need a better communication sa inyo mga disappointed buyers. Parepareho tayong mga Pinoy at sana ay magtulungan na lang kaysa magsisihan! Thank you!

      • Hi Jane,
        Tanung ko lang po kung sakop nyo rin ang Crown Asia (Kasi kay Villar din un parang Camella), may concern lang din po ako although pasimula pa lang un pinapatayo namin bahay sa Valenza Crown Asia eh nagkakaroon na ako ng problema sa construction.. 2 months na since nagbayad kami ng spot DP (approx 1.5M) pero hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin nasisimulan. Humihingi ako ng construction timeline or Project Gantt Chart pero hindi daw sila nag-issue nun…
        As an Engineer, alam ko na lahat ng Projects ay dapat may timeline para may guide at para malaman kung still on track ka pa o hindi
        na at para magawan ng paraan kung sakaling delay na ung project. Baka sakaling matulungan nyo po ako habang maaga pa at hindi na maghintay ng more than 1 year un construction. Salamat po ng marami…

      • sir allan amin din po yan ang crown mga high end po yan dyan pero i have no idea kung ano mga patakaran nila dyan. diba sir pinapaliwag naman yan sa mga contrata bago nyo pinirmahan nandun po yan lahat kung nabasa nyo po isa2 bago kayo nagsign at nagbayad ng reservation fee.dipiende po yan kasi kung kumuha kayo sa area na pre selling pa ganun yan matagal pa maconstruct yan.sir pakibasa nalang po ulit yung mga pinirmahan nyo na contrata kasi nandoon yan isa2 basahin nyo ulit.thanks

  110. i have also my frustration sa camella at sana may makatulong sa akin d2. my house is under construction ngayon for almost a year. a private construction. dumaan kami sa legal process para makakuha ng construction permit. nagsubmit ng propose design at aprubado nila. yong mga engineers nila naglagay ng comment sa propose plan na “Roofing Materials”. Now halos patapos na ang house ko pinahinto nila ang construction dahil pinapabago nila ang roofing base sa design nila. My point is dahil sa negligence nila ako at ang contractor ko ang nagsusuffer. Almost 3x a week pumupunta ang mga engineers nila sa construction site namin wala silang sinasabi then kung kailan tapos na ang roofing at finishing na lang ang gagawin saka nila sasabihin na di daw puede ang ganun design ng house. Gusto na rin namin ilapit sa legal counsel yong ginagawa nila sa amin.

  111. abah, tatlong oras ko binasa lahat parang gusto ko mahimatay.. isa din po kasi akong OFW na umaasang may bahay after 1-2 years. anyway reservation palang ang naibigay ko pero itutuloy ko na iyon. atleast ang Camella Tagum is malapit sa mga school at hospital un nalang consuelo ko sa sarili ko.. isa pa tama ung sinabi ng iba na di naman lalaki ung camella kapag puro lang kapalpakan. siyempre pumapalpak ung iba kasi hinahayaan nila yung contractors na gumawa at di sila nakikialam. atleast alam ko na na dapat pala bantayan ng gf ko yung construction at kung ano pa ang dapat gawin. maraming salamat sa mga nagpost dito. sana ma-solve na yung mga problems nyo. kung minor lang naman wag nyo na sana palakihin lalo nyo lang ini-stress yung mga OFW na katulad namin na walang magawa kundi umasa sa ibang tao.. agree ako dun sa nagsabi na iba iba naman kasi ang contractors at mga agents, wag nating lahatin na as if ang laki ng kasalanan ng camella. ako din po ayaw ko masayang investment ko. kaya gagawa ako ng measures para maiwasan ang anomang negative na mangyayari soon. sana ganun din po kayo, tayong lahat.. God bless us all..

    • I am an OFW rin. Based on my experience sa pgbili ng huz sa Camella ( La Montagna in Teresa, Rizal) so far eh okay nman ang transaction namin sa knila at very attentive yong in house agent namin na si Mang Arthur at pt yong misis nya as in kapag my inquiry kami eh hindi lumilipas ang isang araw at tinatawag kaagad nya sa amin yong answer sa concern namin. Actually eh ngstart kmi ng payment since February 2011, as per initial agreement sa knila eh mgsstart ang construction after payment of the 10% down payment. Supposedly eh August 2011 yon but since ngpalit kmi ng model unit so lumaki yong cost ng house at yong completion ng 10% was last January this year. I have been informed by my husband na ok na approved na yong contractor for the house and mgla-layout n sila by Monday (6th FEbruary, 2012). Hopefully eh mging smooth yong construction or kung meron mang problema eh sana eh manageable. BTW, as per advice of our agent eh mglagay dw kmi ng isang tao sa site pra mgbantay which is what we are going to do. In addition, since iba2 ang contractor ng camella, it is better to ask those homeowners kung sino yong reliable n contractor at yong maayos maggawa kc eh depende nman sa owner kung cno ang contractor na gusto nila eh. I don’t know kung gnun tlg yong case, pro in our case eh kmi pumili ng contractor nmin at based n rin yon sa recommendation nung agent at pt ng mga homeowners n nkausap nmin. Actually ngkaron dn kmi ng problem sa isang staff sa camella office as in super sungit at bnigyan kmi ng maling computation since ngbago nga kmi ng model unit so ngkaron ng recomputation. So what I have done is nggawa ng sarili kong computation including a letter at yon! They changed the computation na ginawa nung staff.

      • Hi GABJUMZ, future neighbor pala kita … kumuha din ako bahay as La Montagna … Pede mo ba ako mabigyan ng tips … like sinong contractor ang magaling gumawa at maayos? sana po matulungan nyo ako …

        Btw, anong block, lot, model po nakuha nyo?

      • Drina house model yong kinuha namin. How about yours? San yong location nyo? Sino agent nyo? REcommended sa amin na contractor eh c Mr. Garcia.

      • Carmela model po yung nakuha namin at maliit lang na lot(96 sq mtr). Sa block 7 lot 4 po kami. Kayo po anong block and lot? Bago pa lang po ako mag babayad ng downpayment so baka mga Dec 2012 pa mag simula yung construction nung sakin.

        Lagi po ako nag bibike sa La Montagna. Marami akong nakikitang under contruction na bahay ngayon. So far sabi ng mga napagtanungan ko, ok naman sa la montagna. Wala naman silang naging problem habang tinatayo yung bahay at sa developer.

        Salamat po sa information.

      • Block 7 Lot 51 kmi. Mlapit sa my round about. Hopefully eh mging smooth yong course ng construction ng huz ntin.. heheheh!

        Un nga rin gusto ko sa La Montagna kc eh mukhang tahimik ung lugar at mganda ung environment lalo na sa mga kids. Pglabas ng huz eh pwd dun kn rin mgjogging lalo na kpg weekend.

      • ahh mukang nakikita ko nga yung sinasabi nyong lot. May hukay na yun… Ganda pala ng location ng napili mo … dami pa puno dun at malaki kalsada … dun kasi sa napili ko nasa bandang likod nyo. Well ok na ren naman hehehe … btw ilang sukat ng lot area nyo? and if you don’t mind kano total contract price nung house and lot nyo?

        Sakin kasi Carmela model 127 sq mtr tapos nasa 2m yung TCP.

      • Oo my hukay n nga at mgsstart n raw mguhos 2mrw. 148 sqm un at around P2.4M TCP. Nkailamg palit dn kmi ng huz. I think sfter March 2011 eh ng increase cla price eh. Actually eh rina-sf ung una nmin kinuha, then ngpalit kmi ng carmela at finally npunta kmi sa drina. hehhehe! Ok n rin sna me sa carmela kya lng eh ayaw ko n rin mgparenovate2 pa at mdyo maliit ung mga rooms nya sa taas eh at hnd pa pwd maopen fully ung pinto sa baba kya ngdecide n kmi mgdrina.

  112. I had an experience wherein during our inspection the Engr is not taking notes on the items that we have noted. This is the initial inspection. Then the Engr left us to do the inspection ourselves and later to inform her what are the additional things to be fixed. We went to the club house where the Engr is doing her office. Funny because we were knocking but seems like she doesn’t want to talk and did not open the door. Then her service came from the head office. And that is when she opened the door and acted like that she didnt hear the knocking.

    This is the kind of people that you will transact with in the Camella. My dealings with the Customer Service is one of the worst experience. Would love to share the whole story but apparently some contributors here are really stressed and making them worry.

    Just a tip.

    If you are an OFW and buying from an agent somewhere around the globe. Make sure that the lot that you are buying have not been sold to others. (Check, Check)

    As to looking after the construction process get a friend or a relative who understand this field an Engr or Mason maybe.

    Would be good if your Agent is a licensed broker. At least you can breath that if he/she make a wrongdoing you can always go to PRC and file a complaint.

    Although it makes me sad reading the thread. We can give tips to those prospective buyers so that they will be aware on what to look into when dealing with Camella.

    No need for media on this but we can always share page in Social Networks sites. So that hopefully we will be able to get Camella’s attention and be sensitive to our complaints. The company itself I believe is not doing this purposely but those people inside the Camella premises who we expect to do the Right thing.

    (Fingers crossed) hope my issues are resolved so that I can share the good news here. Will pray for you all.

  113. Hi guys, I got a unit in Lessandra Daang Hari.. this is the wrong/worse decision in my life na kumuha ng haus to this developer. from customer service upto thier engineer wla kang makakuha good response. No choice na lang to make backout kc dami ko ng money na invest sa bahat na to.. Just to share na lang sa mga bago kukuha na mag investigate muna kau about sa developer regarding the quality of their house and the service they provided..

    Here’s are the list of all issues we have on this developer.

    1. Late turnover of unit – After I complted the DP, after 7 months bago na turnover un unit.

    2. Poor quality of materials – bako bako un wall, d pantay un floors, problem sa line ng electricity and leakage sa tubig.. lahat na experience ko and mabagal ang response nila to resolve those issues.

    3. The promise of amenities and car services.. Until now wala pa rin Feb 2012 na wla pa rin un mga pangako nila.

    4. security lapses – Madami ng issue ng nakawan sa Lessandra area dahil un barracks ng construction workers ay nasa loob ng area. Ayaw tangalin ng mga engr at ilgay sa main entrance dahil baka daw ma turn off un mga bago prospect na buyer…PANO NA UN SECURITY NG MGA UNA NAKAKUHA??

    5. Meron construction site na ayaw lagyan ng harang.. Sobra maalikabok sa area.

    We are all suffering right now and nasaan na un mga pangako na comfortability & safety nun subdivision???

    • Hi Dirt, is this the Lessandra Heights subd. beside Cerritos Heights sa daang hari?
      Yung mga Customer Care nila hindi nga ganun ka ganda ang service, tingin ko dapat i-training nila.

      Sa lahat, you need to check yung house construction, kayo na mismo ang tumingin kung may mga mali na, para maagapan, kasi cause din yan para tumagal ang construction. kung kaya nyo everyday, best yun, pero ako once a week lang. And nakatulong talaga yun, kasi merong instance pagpunta ko sa site, ginagawa na yung mga rooms sa 2nd flr. we check and mali yung partition ng rooms, and mali din yung sukat nung window sa sa harap ng 2nd flr., so we communicated it agad sa engr. ng camella to verify.

      Yung Engr. na may hawak sa pinagawa naming bahay, wala atang load or laging low bat, kasi tinetext mo na and tinatawagan ang CP, hindi nagrereply, ayoko syang pangalanan, kasi ayoko naman manira ng tao, pero sa Camella Alabang naka assign yun.

      Monday sila available sa office so nakausap ko yung engr. na yun. sabi nya nareceive nya daw yung text ko and ichecheck nya daw yun, and yung window daw, nagkaroon sila ng changes. ang tanong bakit ako pa ang naunang naka alam ng mali, hindi ba sya nag checheck, eh kung monday lang sya sa office, he had the time from tue to fri, na icheck man lang yung mga hinahawakan nyang bahay.

      I understand na sa ibang contract, like mine, may option talaga na baguhin ang design ng bahay depende sa camella, PERO SANA, PAKI INFORM YUNG BUMILI NG BAHAY SA LAHAT NG UPDATES NINYO. ano ba naman yung simpleng email notification diba. hindi yung magulat na lang kami na iba yung ibibigay nyong itsura compare sa house model.

      Ang hirap kasi sa karamihan ng filipino talaga, ang simple na nga lang ng gagawin o trabaho, hindi pa magawa ng maayos.

      Basta payo ko sa inyo, maging makulet kayo, kahit simpleng bagay na sa tingin nyo eh mali na, report nyo agad.
      Kasi nasa clause naman ng contract lahat yan and kung ano ang nandun, yun ang dapat masunod.

      Camella, Kuto Ka Ba?
      Bakit?
      Ang dami na kasing customer na nagkakamot ng ulo dahil sayo.

      BOOM

  114. Dear All,

    Im a VICTIM as well,
    alam nyo ba na nag email na ako sa ireport@abs-cbn cc ni Manny villaR office of the secretary.

    ito pa ang sagot ng secretary office Ni MV. cgi Mam follow-up namin ang complaint ninyo but God knows walang nag reply sa akin since then.

    I purchased my house was in nov. 2009 and the manager he promised to me from the day one we purchased we will handover to you the property in 6 months walang naangyari. after 1 year nag tanong ako hows my house sabi malapit na Mam matapos so last year month of May 2011 tinawagan nila ang anak ko na mag handover na daw kasi tapos na. which is timing din umuwi ako OH MY….. ginamit na materials is sub standard and very LOW cost sabi ko sana bumili nalang ako ng pabahay ni ERAP at alam ko talaga mababa ang quality noon is this a 1.7million? sagot noong mga contractor yes Mam kasi kong ano lang po yong Budget yun po ang gagawin namin.

    n ag email ako sa manager ng Camella Bacolod at accounts dept. kong hindi mo ma handover sa akin with in this year ibalik mo lahat ang nabayd ko which the Law. baguhin nyo muna lahat at bago ko tangapin.
    nag email pa ako kay Manny Villar makapal sila sumagot sa akin ang secretary ni Villar na si Dahpne, yan cgi Mam follow-up namin until now wala.
    Tama kayo kasi malaking tao sya Who cares bakit kayo bumili sa Camella yan ang usapan dito sa Abroad.
    anyway natapos din ang haws ko at handover na nila last month peru binago nila at gumada ganda din naman not really bad like before.
    kong mag complaint kayo e cc copy ninyo ang ireport@abs-cbn.com or GMA news.

    kaya binago ang house ko kasi sinulatan ng lawer dito sa Dubai ang Camella Bacolod na sila pa dapat mag bayad sa akin since the day one. natakot naman,bakit mag takutan pa ba bago nya gawin ang matino?

    to Manny Villar please paki check naman lahat na DEVELOP mo huwag kang sungab ng sungab PLEASE!!!! ang hirap hanapin ng pera ha at hindi lang peso yan eh Million yan eh.

    sana may returned sa kanya what goes around’s come around, kong ayaw nya pansinin ang mga taong bumili. may BAD LUCK sa kanya im sure. SUB STANDARD LAHAT NA GINAMIT NILA SA CAMELLA BACOLOD.

    regards,

    • @dubai94, please update me on what happen on your email with ireport? and kindly send villar’s email add. I really need to give him a piece of advice on how his personels should hire a customer service relations officer, Thanx and God Speed.

  115. C Manny Villar bigatin yan so kahit anong complaint ng mga bumili wala tayong magawa. ang pasisi ay huli……

    anyway ginawa naman sa akin medyo maganda na now so I need to sell this property.

  116. Sorri nalang kayo bakit kayo bumili sa Camella very very LOW cost and su-standard materials dahil ako real estate ako sa Dubai alam ko ang rules and regulations. peru im not happy at all sa nabili ko sa Camella bacolod. eventhough maganda na sya kasi pinadalahan ko ng sulat sila pag hindi binago ibalik nyo lahat na pera ko huwag kayong matakot dahil may Law ang real estate.
    kaya mag demand kayo karapatan nyo yan. to all OFW syempre sino pa ba ang mag kakampi lahat na OFW.

    • same lang naman yung pic na yan 64 ang floor area ng carmela…akin yata yung sulit na pic…sa general trias na pic yan….may name ko sa baba…

      • Thanks po Miss Jane sa reply. Kaso what I am asking po is yung carport/balcony nya … makikita nyo po sa 2 pictures na yun na magkaiba sila ng carport. Yung isa mahaba at mukang kasya buong kotse, yung isa maliit lang at mukang kasya lang ay motor.

      • same lang po sukat nyan sir sa pics lang po siguro floor area is 64sq mter ang camela pwede nyo pong sukatan sa actual…sa pics lang po talaga.

      • hindi ako taga camella pero bumili ako sa kanila and one of the clause sa contract is that pwedeng baguhin ng camella ang house model for the benefit of both parties if necessary. ganyan din nangyari sa house ko, although TH yung binili ko, yung kulay, windows and interior ng bahay namin eh iniba dun sa model unit that they presented. i question them for that kasi wala man lang sila sinabi na iibahin nila. paki check mo contract mo kung walang ganun sa contract mo, pwede mo ipabago yan or kunin mo na lang bayad mo, kasi magiging void ang contract kapag may mga hindi nasunod or maling ginawa na wala sa contract.

    • @duane
      pareho tayo ng concern

      @jane
      mam nakikita po yun malaki pagkakaiba nun carport/balcony.
      may extra bayad po ba pag yung mahaba ang papagawa? magkano po?

      • maam rose meron po kaming carmela walang carport and balcony…meron din kaming w/ carport and balcony so pag may carport and balcony may extra yun na bayad mga 100k…nong kumuha po ba kayo ng bahay ano po diniscuss ng agent nyo sa inyo yung price ba na binigay nya sayo w/ carport and balcony naba?at nong nagpirma kayo ng contrata pinapabasa naman lahat2 sa inyo lahat2 yung contrata at iniinterview or briefing muna kayo bago tanggapin ang reservation nyo.pinapaliwanag yan kung ang nakuha nyo ay without carport and balcony or with carport and balcony…nabasa nyo ba ng mabuti yung quotation sheet nyo at contract bago kayo pumirma?

  117. maybe much better kung mag assign din kau ng supervisor na engr sa ipapatayo nyong mga bahay pra macheck ang mga bagay bagay na dapat icheck pra makaiwas sa mga unwanted problem resulting into frustrations….nagtrabaho din ako sa construction firm and yet camella is not directly the one who construct your houses ..naghahire sila ng mga subcontructors para mapatayo ang mg bhay nyo, meaning kung subcon daily basis yan alam nyo na ang mga pilipinong pasaway kung minsan….dapat active at responsible ang engr na humahawak dito para di maisahan ng mga laborers..ang bhay dpat ultimo kaliit liitang bahagi makita ng engr….at maitama kung di talaga pwede…ksi khit kau mismo mag inspect kung di nmn natin alam mga bagay na dapat blewla rin…..

  118. hi i´m also a home owner in camella Bacolod,Tanung k lng s mga nka turn over n yung bahay.Kung my binayaran din kayong home registration at fire extinguisher worth 6000 pesos total.Just worndering ksi akala k nka address n yung house kung saan ang unit namin tapos n lahat n binabayaran esp,mga registration n it…usual ba ito or bagong rules lng nla?nkakainis n ksi everytime mag transact yung kapatid k pera yung hinihingi nla.” mag 2,2 yrs n yung bahay k dpa n turn over tapos bago nla i turn over dpat may post dated check n 12 months in advance at n bigay naman nmin yun.Tapos panibago naman 4 plus 1,600 s fire extinguisher.tanung k lng s may mga experience n kng gnito ba s inyo.thanks!

  119. im also a homeowner of camella (lessandra) in bacoor cavite. and their billing statement always comes late. so I have to go their office in shaw boulevard which is very far from our place!!! I already reported this matter to them. but still no action!!! worst customer care ever!

  120. solution cguro is expose na dapat ay maling pamamalakad ng Camella sa media… Halos lahat ng owner sa lessandra daang hari may complaints. isumbong na dapat sa T3 sa channel 5 para maging mabilis un aksyon nila!!! Mga engineer ng Camella makikitid ang utak.. palibhasa mga bagohan engineer…

    • @karyl, Yan nga sn ang dapat gawin pero ala pa gumagawa . Ako e nag iintay lang sa makakasama na magrereklamo. Mas marami mas mabuti, pero siguruhin na may ebidensya…….in particular, gusto kong ireklamo na bakitt sa mga gagawa ng improvements ng house ang bilis nilang umaksyon sa paghingi ng bond at pagharang ng deliveries ng materials. Pero ang bagal umaksyon pag sa complaints na ng home owners regarding sa defects ng mga bahay na binenta nila.

  121. update on camella palo leyte:
    as of March 04, 2012:
    1. Still no water suppy.
    2. street is flooding during heavy rain. Drainage system still incomplete

    requested general manager to meet with home owners today. General manager were no show during home owners meeting last sunday 26Feb12.

    any advise on what to do….. pls. help….

  122. HI Leyte, the best thing to do was to get the attention of the media people… panloloko na sa tao ang ginagawa nila..

    T3 sa channel 5 might can help us on resolving those cases..

  123. Hi, I am a homeowner of a unit in Camella Pristina in Buhay na Tubig, Imus, Cavite. Since 2010, we are complaining about the foul smell coming from a piggery near our subdivision. We have raised this to the Property Manager (PM) from Globalland, Pristina’s property management company, however, until today, Camella is not taking any action on our complaint. Last update that we heard from them was in January 2011, wherein, according to the PM, their legal is still reviewing the contents of the position paper about the propriety of a large-scale piggery operation near the residential area.

    Any advice for our next course of action would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

    • I think the complaint should be submitted to the city administrator. Hindi naman kasi madali ilipat ang babuyan at isa pa, hindi nyo property yun, eh. Hindi nga property ng Camella yan, eh.

      Ang tanong lang dyan, naka-zone ba strictly for residential yung area nyo? baka naman matagal na yang babuyan na yan. Hindi lang problema ng Camella yan. Halos lahat ng low-cost housing, may ganyang problema.

      Ngayon, kung hindi sinabi ng camella na may malapit na babuyan, may pagkukulang sila doon.

    • OmG… balak ko pa namang kumuha sa Pristina Expansion.. as in mabaho talaga? ngek eh sa iba nalang ako kukuha kung ganun :( dami pa namang iba sa imus at bacoor!

  124. @rachelle labriaga lie— im a home homeowner âlso sa camella homes bacolod. yes nagbayad din ako ng fire extinguisher and HOA fee which is 1600 and HOA fee advance 6 months payment.hopefully makalipat n kmi soon.

    • paki basa na lang po yung nasa contract nyo. ang alam ko pwede makuha yung DP nyo, pero mahabang process pa din ang gagawin. pero yung reservation definitely hindi mo na makukuha yun.

  129. I have same problem with camella. Really they don’t act on our request. November nag turn-over, sabi ng engineer aayusin ang mga sira. January nag bayad na kami ng Home Owners Due, nag fill-up na din kami ng Action Form para sa complaint. Supposed to be March 17 lilipat na kami, until now di pa rin na aaksyunan ang mga complaints. Grabe talaga tong camella na to. Puro crack na ang bahay ko wala pang 6 months at ang pintura, bakbak na!! Ang crack pa nya mula sa R, as in basag ang tiles hanggang second Floor. hindi pa kami nakakalipat, sira na agad ang bahay! Napaka kupad ng camella. Ilang beses na akong nag ff-up. Lagi daw wala yung engineer. Hindi sumasagot sa email ang customer service! Walang kwenta tong camella na to!!

  130. Attention VIllar…. mga tauhan mo sa Vista Land mapa engineer/customer care/ sales dept. stupid mag instruct ng mga procedure. I was wondering paano kayo nag ha hired ng staff… … (Lessandra Hts. Daang Hari)

  131. HI Leyte, the best thing to do was to get the attention of the media people… panloloko na sa tao ang ginagawa nila..

  132. Based on my own experience, you cannot trust camella’s contractors to build the right space according to plan. My garage was rebuilt after I measured it myself and found out that it is smaller than what is written in the plan. I could just imagine the units sold to OFW’s that is only supervised by the housewives. They could simply just cover up for all safety and design rule deviations without the unit owner knowing

  133. @may, ano issue sa Lessandra Hts and nakatira ka na ba dun? Kumuha din kasi ako ng TH dun and scheduled TO na ako sa end of April

  134. TRULY MADLY DEEPLY WORST SERVICE AND CAMELLA ( LESSANDRA HTS. daanh hari molino IV bacoor cavite…. substandard yung mga materials, hindi uniform yung mga townhouse now ko lang na check kugn kelan na TO na saken… huhuhuhu

      • Hi Sir! did camella sent workers to repair ur house? i believe ur house still on warranty they have to fix any problem or repair ur house for free and u dont even have to buy materials! we experienced also a lot of problems but they fixed it!

    • @jade talagang hindi po uniform ang ang mga townhses sa Less.Hts kasi po ay tatlong design po yan…mat Reana.Margarita at Sandra…sana po nakita nyo yan nun nag tripping pa lang kau

  135. sinabe mo pa buti nalng na discover ko itong blog nato. Kapal ng mukha maningil ng HOmeOwners fee P500. Pag complaints naman walang response…. at mautak ha tlagang inin-cluded sa waters bill para nga naman wala kang choice kundi settle mo or else disconnect water service mo….

    • @ May bakit 500 lang ang assoc dues nyo dito sa amin sa prominenza baliuag 650 per month. pasalamat ka na at mas affordable dyn sa inyo hahahaha

  136. I also had my share of frustrations with camella. Beware also for false measurement. Based on my own experience, you cannot trust camella’s contractors to build the right space according to plan. I measured it myself and found out that it is smaller than what is written in the plan. I could just imagine the units sold to OFW’s that is only supervised by the housewives. They could simply just cover up for all safety and design rule deviations without the unit owner knowing.

    TO ALL OTHER OFW AND INTERESTED BUYERS, CAMELLA HAS THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER. ALL THEY ARE AFTER IS YOUR MONEY. THAT’S IT. SO THINK TWICE, THINK 100 X BEFORE GIVING AWAY YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY TO THEM.

  137. some other saying kaya pala kahit ilang talo pa ni VILLAR sa ELECTION, balewala lang sa kanya because may mga tangang buyer na nagpapaloko!!!!!!

  138. NAKAKATAKOT NAMAN. 3 HOUSES PA NAMAN ANG HINUHULUGAN NAMIN SA CAMELLA. INVESTMENT SANA…. WE ALREADY PAID THE DOWNPAYMENT AND SABI 6 MONTHS DAW I CONSTRUCT NA ANG HOUSE. NA DENY SA BANK LOAN KC 2 YEARS DAW ANG SABI SA KANLA NG CAMELLA NA MAGIGING BANKABLE ANG PROPERTIES. PINALAMPAS KO NA YUN. ANG NAKAKALOKA, ANG WALANGHIYANG AGENT NA NANGAKO NG 2% DISCOUNT SABI AFTER 3 WEEKS PAGKABAYAD NAMIN NG DOWNPAYMENT MAKUKUHA, MAY NA NGAYON NDI PA BINIBIGAY. GRRRRRRRRR.

  139. Sa Camella Malolos office, irresponsible talaga mga staff diyan, magaling lang sa paniningil, pero pag nag complain ka sa kanila, walang ginagawang aksyon …. walang update na ibinibigay sa kliyente …. manghuhula ka sa progress ng project …. puro pangako …. pero walang isang salita …. mga unprofessional kung makipag deal sa mga kliyente ….. bagsak ang grado ….. income oriented kasi …. kulang sa concern sa mga customer …. nakaka bwisit …. PALPAK.

    • @ Presto, I thought Camella Baliuag is worst hahahaha. Nagtatabaan na ang mga empleyado nila sa pagtambay sa opisina kahit napakadaming nakapending na request at complaint. Kakapal kumuha ng sweldo na galing sa mga bayad natin pero wala naman nagagawa mga lintek. Mga walang silbi.

      • @Hex
        Hayaan na nating magtabaan para mamatay agad ang mga peste …. sa impiyerno na sila kakainin ng mga uod …. Huwag na sana silang pamarisan …. calling Mr. Villar ….. nagcomplain na ako sa inyo through letter … pero wala pa ring aksyon ….. buti na lang hindi kita ibinoto last election …. and I wont do that while I live …. HANEP KAYONG MAGHANAP-BUHAY. Pweh sa inyong kakapalan ng mukha. Hindi nyo madadala kayamanan nyo pag nasa ilalim na kayo ng lupa ….

    • same dito sa leyte, hindi na kami pinakikinggan ng mga empleyado regarding sa concern namin.. pag tinatawagan sila hindi na sila sumagot.

      pero kung sa paniningil at sa assurance sa bayad laging tumatawag. madali nilang ma process sa paniningil pero sa mga concern wala na.

      may management ba sa camella?????

    Camella Homes vs Home Owners

    May 2, 2009 by denciojuan

    Camella Homes,owned by Manny Villar and managed by his daughter, has the worst service. They don’t act on the complaints of the home owners, which are 90% OFWs, who paid millions of pesos for a 40 sq.m. house.

    The complaints were never acted on. In fact, they do not even act on the fact that part of their contract states that the house will be built within 6 months and unfortunately, other houses were built for almost a year. OFWs who already believed that when they get back here they already have a house to stay, went somewhere else because, there is no house yet!!!

    Bago siya magpa-uwi ng OFWs, ayusin niya muna ang problema ng mga OFWs na kumuha ng bahay at lupa sa kanyang subdivisions.

    Huwag magpaloko!

  145. La Montagna Teresa

    We purchased a Drina house model in La Montagna Estates in Teresa, Rizal. We started paying the DP last year, we finished the 10% DP January of this year. As per provision of the contract, they will start the construction upon payment of the 10%. Hindi ko pinagtatanggol ang camella but as far as our experience is concern, tumupad nman cla sa obligations nila though my problema kmi naencounter sa isa nilang incompetent staff. BTW, February 2012 ngstart ang construction ng huz nmin at ang expected time of turn over is this coming July. If you will based it sa progress ng construction, I believe they will be able to turn it over on time as of this time eh my window casing n cla and by next week cla mgkakabit ng trashes for the roofing as hindi p dw dumating ung order. Weekly ngvivisit ang husband ko sa site to see the progress. Please note, hindi nman directly ang camella ang ngcoconstruct ng houses, may mga contractor sila at kmi ang pumili ng accredited contractor para sa huz nmin and I believe it is their policy na papiliin ang buyer ng contractor of their choice. Before we choose Engr. Garcia (contractor) ngtanong tanong muna kmi sa mga homeowners at sa agent kung cno ang recommended contractor nila. Luckily, ntapat kmi sa matinong contractor at mdaling kausap. Ngrequest kmi ng change sa floor plan ng house before the construction started at tinulungan kmi ng contractor n mpaapproved un. Pinabago nmin yong location ng pinto sa side ng garage para hindi sya directly nktapat sa stairs. So if ever may mga nkabili ng unit sa nyo sa La Montagna, I will recommend Engr. Garcia. Hindi ako ng aadvertise pro hearing all the complaints from the other homeowners gusto ko lng mkatulong in my own little way pra mabawasan ang burden nyo. Sadly walang option para mgpost ng pic, I would love to share the progress of the construction.

    • mam gabjumz kmuha din po kmi jan sa camella mgkalpt lng tau kasi laha kmi,,,ask ko lng po sana kng ano name ng contractor nio pra nmn mkapili kmi ng mgnda at mbilis….nghulog pa kasi kmi sa dp at mlpt na kmi mka 10% kay gsto ko san makuha ng info po sa nio…..tnx po god bless…

  146. UNGGOY!!! HINDI LAHAT NG CAMELLA HOUSE CONCTRACTION PEDE KANG MAKAPAMILI NG CONTRACTOR CILA NAG AASIGN JAN…PATI YUNG ENGINEER…. KAHIT ANUNG SABIHIN MO OBLIGATION PAR IN NG CAMELLA YAN….DAPAT ALAM NILA OBLIGATION NILA!!! HINDI YUNG PURO PERA NASA ISIP NILA KYA HINDI NANANALO SA ELECTION EH… TNX GOD..NGAYON YUNG WIFE NAMAN BUMABALANDRA SA ELECTION.. CAN U IMAGINE MAGKANO ANG ISANG COMMERCIAL SA TELEVISION….

  147. @ANN: As I’ve said, I BASED EVERYTHING I WROTE ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IN DEALING WITH THEM. It is okay to criticize somebody when they did something wrong BUT YOU HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT AS WELL WHEN IT IS DUE. I don’t vote for Villar personally. Tungkol sa sinasabi mo na hindi lahat ng camella house CONSTRUCTION (mind you) pwede ka mamili ng CONTRACTOR, hindi kita masasagot simply because hindi yon ang experience nmin with them. I am an OFW as well, alam ko kung gano kahirap kumita ng pera sa ibang bansa. AS I’ve said, may mga di kagandahan din kming experience sa staff ng camella office in Rizal. Nagpalit kmi ng huz model at may additional sila na siningil, nanghingi kmi ng bagong computation at nakita ko na mali ang computation nila so ngreklamo kmi through an official memo addressed to the Manager at inaayos nila ang computation nila and my husband notified me that they have corrected the computation based on what I have done. Maaring mali ako pro dapat mtuto rin tayong proteksyonan ang nilalabas nating pera. Yeah, may mga taong manloloko and as a buyer, hindi ngtatapos sa pagbabayad ng pera sa camella ang responsibilidad ntin, dapat alam ntin ang karapatan ntin at katulad nga ng sabi ko, NAGPAPASALAMAT AKO AT HINDI NAMIN NARANASAN ang mga problema na sinapit ng iba.

  148. Meron po ba tayong mga kababayan dito n nagpurchase ng bahay s Lipa at Sto. Tomas Batangas? I will gladly appreciate if you could share your expeiences here. We’re also planning to buy a unit in Batangas City which is just starting this year. I’m also an OFW but upon reading your blogs, I’m having more doubts and fears of buying from Camella.

    • Hi Mam/Sir QatarOFW…

      If you would like to buy/ construct a home… You could contact me – 09178089883… my name is Marvin… we’re a start up Construction Company… We would built your home in the agreed time and days… Thank you…

      • An update with regard to purchasing a home in Camella Lipa Heights..I cancelled the purchase before everything would turn into a nightmare. I gave Camella the benefit of the doubt even I’ve read negative feedbacks about them, unfortunately everything that is written in this forum are so TRUE. I would never go into details, because I’ve encounter the same issues that you all have. Basically, I paid the reservation fee of 10k then it was followed by broken promises of these people. We made an agrrement with them that we will pay the half price of the property on Sept. 11, 2012 instead of paying it at the end of Aug. to avail the 10% discount. Guess what? I went to their office yesterday to follow up, I was informed by the RUDE ELLEN that we can only avail 8% discount upon paying the said amount on Sept. 11, I told her that, that wasn’t the agreement, but then she insisted, and kept on interrupting me while explaining my side. Then she goes “Ma’am your loan is not yet approve, it would take about a month for the result.” I said, “Yeah right, then what’s the purpose of giving you my DP if my loan is not yet approve?” It was then I realized that Camella would just take away our hard earned money and wouldn’t care about us people who are struggling to earn money.

        Worst customer service, incompetent people, unethical employees (I want to reiterate the name of ELLEN who is very rude), inefficient practices for the process, because they wont give us ample time to read through the pages of the contract before signing in if I didn’t insisted, these are some of my experiences with them. I have more but I don’t want to discuss it further.

    • Whoa! What hAppened here? Anyway, just want to say I finally got my lot title this late October, dapat sept kaya lang sinabay ko na sa vacation ko for undas. Gastos sa plane fare. I think it’s better u purchase lot only and have the house construction urself and not thru developer. But there is also a provision in ur contract that lot must be fully paid first before any construction can be done. I’ve decided to sell my prime lot 132sqm blk 1 lot 7. You can email me at hannah27_99@yahoo.com for interested buyers preferably direct.

      • dear h
        you took the right desision
        less head ache from camela
        they dont use real builder or proffesional anyway
        i also buy a lot at pacific shore will built myself if i can ever sell this house
        good luck

  149. is anyone here purchase a unit in la poblacion muzon? ok ba kumuha ng house s carissa? is there any delays sa construction ng house?

  150. wla po ba tlgang marerefund sa pera na bnyad mo, khit piso….we have been facing prob sa Camella Cagayan Valley, then we decided to cancel the purcahase,ang sbi wla daw marerefund nkalagay daw sa contrata , since nsa abroad ako father ko ang katransac nla accdg to my father wla namn daw xang contratang pinirmahan, ni wla nga kming copy sa contrata..nirefer namin sa lawyer ang sabi dpat daw may refund di pdeng wala..nkakapanghinayang..isang taon kong pinagpaguran nwala nalang na parang bula..mabuti pa sana kung sinugal ko bka nag enjoy pa ako…hinayang tlga ako, sobra..

    • may naloloko dahil my nagpapaloko. Huwag na po kayong magpaloko maam!! Sa Camella leyte, mag 2 years na wala pa ring supply nag tubig. 2M ang average nang properties sa camella leyte at walang tubig. worse is an daming nagpaloko, at on going pa ang construction sa second phase…

    • consider yourself lucky for the early warning. otherwise, luluha ka talaga ng dugo sa Camella. sinabi ko rin yan sa sarili ko noon na hindi naman siguro mangyayari ito sa akin sa Bacolod. guess what? same story and i’m not alone. think very carefully, my dear. wala ka ng ibang masisisi kundi sarili mo.

      • hay hambala pa H kmi sangkatutak ang problema simula ng pag move in nmin. As in i will get crazy mabuti at nakapag timpi pa ako hanggang naayos lahat ng dapat ayusin kung hindi magwawala talaga ako doon sa office ng camella pati sa mall kung saan sila nang convice ng mga buyer!

  151. Hi There….

    Next time that you would like to own or build a home, or know someone that would like to… You could contact me…. Marvin Drilon (Owner of Drilon & Doctor Construction – 09178089883)… We could built your homes in 3 months time…. Because we only just have few customers unlike Camella that has lot and that’s the reason why most of the time the construction is being delayed….

    We’re only just accepting specific numbers of customer per quarter so that our construction could not be delayed since we’re not yet that big as company…

    Than you…

  152. I am really worried now. I don’t know what to say with all these allegations against Camella. Sana naman hindi nightmare din sa amin. We paid all the downpayments, we are in our 3rd months amortization. The house is now under construction but if we go to the site, wala kang makausap na knowledgeable sa queries, yon palang kabado na ako. We’ve been in the site back and forth pero never pang nakita namin yong engineer. I will follow the suggestion na I will bring an engineer to the site as to the measurement.

  153. kelan ba tatanggalin yang Jaro na yan sa Buhay na Tubig ???? ang baho kasi !!!!!!!! .. nasayang lang 10K ko saka ko lang nalaman yang Jaro na yan badtrip .. hindi din naman sinabi pinagmadali pa kami mag reserve ..

  154. I’ve been living in Camella Grenville, Taguig for 2 years now. Happy kami with the location. Usual problems with the houses by Camella are waterproofing and electricals. I’m not sure about the system, but I think the houses are built by subcontractors, so the quality is dependent on the integrity of the subcontractors. Sa palagay ko, useless bantayan ang construction unless ang bantay niyo very knowledgeable on everything about building a house. A layman usually won’t know a thing about engineering design, cement mixing quality, electrical breakers, waterproofing, etc. Puwede pa rin dayain ng subcontractors by buying poor quality cement, neglecting stable foundations, flimsy locks and window handles, etc.
    Personal experience: extension was recently made on my house by M Bolanos Construction. I trusted him because he sounded knowledgeable about what he saw in our house before he started and he claimed that he built a lot of houses in Camella subdivisions (probably a subcontractor). He was also usually around at the site when a neighbor’s house was being built. We didn’t skimp on the budget because we wanted quality materialsm and Marcelino Bolanos said that there would be a breakdown of cost once everything was done. Now it’s 6 months later, practically every new wall that was added is leaking and a couple of tiles are still unfinished due to recent waterproofing that is still faulty. According to the itemized bill, P 64,000 is for doors and windows. Ha! There are only 3 windows and 1 door involved in the extension, all old windows were reused and only the door is new which costs around P4,000. And there are missing window handles that Bolanos is negligent enough to ignore replacing.
    In short, AVOID MARCELINO BOLANOS CONSTRUCTION until hell freezes over!

    • Oh by the way, once payment is completed, hindi na nagpapakita or sumasagot ng telephone si Marcelino Bolanos.
      Strictly speaking, it may not be Villar’s/Camella’s fault for defective houses but the subcontractors themselves. And based on what a 3rdparty contractor said, negligent contractors are not unique to Camella. Business is actually booming for firms specializing on repairs on foundations, waterproofing, piping, electricals, etc.

      • Hi Sir Rey M,

        Next time po sa company ko n lang po kayo magpagawa… here’s my contact no. 09178089883 (globe postpaid line)

  155. This post gives me headache!
    On my opinion,first siguro yung mga nakakuha ng unit na may mga problema, may problema talaga sa requirements or something. (like sa pag-ibig, eh hindi sila tumatanggap nun eh)

    Second, baka mumurahing unit lang ang binili nila tapos nagexpect ng todo todo, na ganun ganyan. always remember, QUALITY TAKES PRICE.

    Third, yung mga taong nagrereklamo ng todo parang nakikigulo lang by using vulgar and highly offensive words. Parang gusto lang papaniwalain yung mga tao na ganun ganyan. Why not practice diplomacy, para naman makagain ng trust and respect sa readers.

    Fourth, DARE TO POST YOUR OWN PHOTOS (mas better pag video) ! reklareklamo, wala naman patunay. Confused na ang mga buyers katulad ko! nga pala, i checked yung photo ng kaisa isang nagpost, malay ko ba kung camella talaga yan or some house somewhere lang yan.

    Fifth, kung talagang walang reputation ang Camella, walang bibili. sa pre-selling palang parang hotcake na kung maibenta. Kung ganun ganyan talaga yan.

    Sixth, Try to research more, mangaibigan ng Engineers! mangaibigan ng kapitbahay na foreman, kapitbahay ng matandang construction worker. at dalhin sa site every week, para man lang maicheck di ba.

    Sabi nung agent namin, bago daw gawin eh may sit in session daw with an Engineer or Archiect para mamodify ang kagustuhan ng customer. Yun ay kung deserve mo or single detached ang bahay na bibilhin mo.

    pag nagmove in na kami sa binili naming house, magpopost ako ng full documentation with before and after photos, videos, LAHAT!

    Think think think.

      • Camella doesn’t allow major modifcations sa kanilang design. You can only do that after turnover, at your own cost.
        Umulan ng konti kanina, grabe ang tulo from the extension balcony to the maid’s room below it. Sobra binaboy talaga ang ginawang extension ng M Bolanos Consruction. 2 by 2 meters lang ang balcony, halos kalahating timba ang tulo sa ilalim in less than 1 hour moderate rain. Sa mga kukuha ng unit sa Camella, make sure hindi sina Bolanos ang contractor ninyo.

  156. ok..I dont know what to say but im very very disappointed of what i read just now..I am also one of a buyer of Camella Homes Bacolod & i am on the 8th month of my downpayment, well this time i have no problem because im not yet finished on my down payment but they promised me one thing after i can fully paid my down payment they will start to build my house..So now if the promises will not happen MARK MY WORD I WILL DO ANYTHING THAT WILL DAMAGE THIS NAME!

    • Nakakainis talaga sila nang subra subra, mag 2 years na kmi nagbabayad but yet till now wala pa ang sinasabi nilang bahay! Kakagigil subra!

  157. Fully paid na kami sa camella baliuag 3 years ago hangang ngayon wla pa rin un Title, tapos sinabihan pa kami ililipat kami ng unit pati lot.. tapos pinalitan pa un original lot #..

      • Nakuha ko na titulo more than a year after I completed all necessary documents. Kelangan lang tawagan frequently ang staff na in charge sa account niyo. Minsan kasi nagpapalit ng tauhan, kaya kulang ang follow-up ng Camella sa involved governement agencies.

  158. Diplomatico Romano

    your post gives me headache!!!!!!!

    hello!!! ok lang??? nasa matinong pag-iisip kba? ok cge i consider it as your opnion..Palibhasa kasi hindi mo na ee encounter yung na eexperience namin.. pra namang pag uukulan pa namin na time itong blog na’to just for fun or just to ruined the images of CAMELLA / CROWN ASIA etc…..the value of each unit in camella is hundred thousand to million.. so hindi nama cguro masama kung pahalagahan or makita namin yung mga binayad namin. to be cont…

  159. meron din kaming problem regarding sa camella,
    one month ago nag turn over na din sabi nla we cud stay na after 2 weeks, pero till now andito pa kami nag rerenta ng bahay. wala naman silang commitment sa kanilang mga pangako. lagi na lang on process mga documents. nagbabayad naman kami ng on time pero sila hindi nila matapus ang trabaho sa time expected.
    ‘buti kung sila ang magbabayad sa renta namin. kahit kami matagalan dito sa inuupahan namin kung sila ang magbabayad walang problema sa amin yun.

    kung ayaw niyong masira ang pangalan ng camella o ng may ari, ayusin niyo naman trabaho niyo. cguro ung mga nasa top management paki tingnan niyo naman ang trabaho ng iyong mga employee sa bawat branch niyo, tanungin niyo kung ano ang mga pending na trabaho at kung meron bang nagrereklamo.

    kung may manager jan, do ur responsibilities as a manager. kung marami ang may reklamo then ur not a good manager.

    kung sa collection of payments lagi kayong on-time, pero kung meron ng nagrereklamo binabaliwala niyo. tawag ako ng tawag sa branch regarding may concern pero hindi na sinasagot. anu ba to, laro, taguan…

    Than you…

    • Nice. Just give quality work, keep your rates within reach, use dependable materials, answer the customer’s reasonable requests, and keep the home owners happy, definitly your business will bloom. Just don’t grow to fast or else you will end up with inexperience workers that would lead to poor results and customer satisfaction.
      Do you just do construction or do you give architectural design, local govt documents, etc.? Nakakaabot ba kayo sa Batangas? I’ve got a home already here in MetroManila, but I plan on having a house in the province where I retire to in a couple of decades. Probably start with a small room and parking lot in 5 years, then the whole 1st floor 5 years after that…

      • Hi Sir ReyMatt,

        Thank you so much for your advice and encouraging words…. We could also do architectural designs up to construction of the house (from start to finish)… We’re SEC registered and also have Business Permits… If you plan sir to have a home in the province, we could also do that… I will let my foreman to rent house or have him stayed-in just to take a look at the construction of your home from time to time….

        I could probably give you a call sir Rey if you would let me have your cellphone no., by the way, here’s mine… 09178089883… Thank you…

  161. Camella Homes,owned by Manny Villar and managed by his daughter, has the worst service. They don’t act on the complaints of the home owners, which are 90% OFWs, who paid millions of pesos for a 40 sq.m. house.

  162. ATTENTION TO ALL BUYERS…..
    all comments stated above are very TRUE!! OWNing camella property was really a frustrating decision and a bad nightmare. From the broker sales agent,going to camella engineers,up to construction workers..they all have one thing in common–STUPID, ROOKIES & LIARS!!!

    I bought at Lessandra Executive-Daang hari , while complains are not their priorities,they don’t care about the welfare of the homeowners/buyers at all. Provably camella awaits same tragic incident happened at Cherryhills subd.Antipolo before camella make ACTIONS on complains..

    Camella customer service at household development alabang along with MGS rookies engineers are so called” INUTILS” due to incompetent , slow moving personels and incapable of TRUST..
    NEVER trust this people!! They have SHOWbiz and Politician in their BLOOD.
    “KAWAY-KAWAY at fashionate saiyo,,’PAG TALIKOD BAHALA KA SA BUHAY MO!!!”pakialam ko” thats their main objective”

  163. Bangis,
    Salamat, at nabasa ko mga comment about Camella, nakapag hulog na ako ng 10k reservation last Saturday, may nakapag sabi sa akin pangit daw gawa sa Camella, kaya nag search ako about Camella comment, eto na nga lumabas na…. Ngayon back out na ako., ok na mawala un 10k kaysa ituloy ang pagbabayad.. Tnx to all ur truth comment..

    • Hi Sir Bangis,

      We could probably help you build your own home and… Here’s my cellphone no. 09178089883… Owner of a Construction Company….

  164. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your site offered us with helpful information to paintings on. You’ve performed a formidable process and our entire neighborhood will be grateful to you.

  165. I found it very exciting to be part of camella’s agent. for all the sarcastic and degrading comments, I want to be part of its sales force. one of this days makadto ko sa bacolod ma apply ko agent nila.I love people, and I love talking problematic people. type ko yon. to Camella bacolod, punta ko dyan office nyo one day. yan kung okey lang sa inyo. my e-mail add: cataguearman@yahoo.com. thnks

  166. Same here, I bought unit at Lessandra Executive-Daang hari.. Camella Engineers are beginners (mukha first job nila) and not professional when you raise your concern! wala response!! They started to build another subdivision within that area. wala man lang safety signage or wall para maprotektahan un mga residente dun sa area. Maalikabok! nagkalat ang mga construction boys!

    I dont know kung paano magiisip ang mga Engineers as they started the construction WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT SAFETY AND CONVINIENT NG MGA HOME OWNERS NA NASA PALIGID!

  167. I just like to share the pictures of the house we purchased in Camella La Montagna which is still under construction. It is a Drina House model pro if you will see pinachange nmin ang lay out ng door. Pinalagay nmin sa likod instead sa gilid and most of the materials like yong tiles sa ground floor, lighting fixtures, tiles sa 2 banyo, exhaust fans for the T&B, insulator, faucets, doors sa ground floors etc eh kmi na ang ngsupply ng materials. As I was saying in my earlier posts, ngpapasalamat ako n hindi nmin nranasan yong mga complaints ng ibang home owner pagdating sa construction ng houses nila.

    Gusto ko lng dn po kayo inform na lahat ng basic materials eh supplied ng camella, the subcontractors are hired for the labor only. Kung my delay man during the construction period mostly it is because ang mga subcontractors eh nag iintay lng dn ng materials from camella.

    Eto po yong link for the album, the password is drina1

    • Hi gabjumz, Congrats po sa bahay nyo … ang bilis nagawa and mukang pulido … Sad to say hindi ko na tinuloy yung nakuha kong house & lot dito sa La Montagna … May nadinig kasi akong bad feedback sa La Montagna. Marami daw kasi nakawan dyan lalo na pag walang tao sa bahay. E madalas kasi wala ren naman ako sa bahay. Napansin ko kasi na maluwag talaga yung security dyan at kahit sino nakakapasok. Tapos ang pinakang pangit pa hinayaan nila makidaan yung mga taga bundok at mas malala pa binigyan nila ng right of way. Pinabakbak yung bakod ng La Montaga para makadaan sila … sabi sabi dun daw nanggagaling ang mga magnanakaw … Pero sana maayos to … Ok sana yung lugar …

  168. EPA TULFO KO ATA TO PAG MAGKA PROBLEMA AKO SA UNIT KO PARA MA ALERT SILA KASI PARANG WALA LANG SAKANILA ANG COMPLAINT NANG MGA HOME OWNER! OK LET SEE!

  169. hello advice NmN kumuha diN ako sa camella peru di po ako iNissuehaN Ng coNtrata kuNg kelaN matatapos yoNg bahay..pwede ba yuN?..kasi daw ipapaayos daw sa attorNey uN..mga walaNg hiya talaga..dapat matatpos Na sa aug 25 disyr..peru kalbo pa lahat..kakastress

  170. hello gabjamz, nakakuha din ako ng unit sa la montagna, supposed to be this October na sisimulan ang construction, meron na bang PLDT line duon?

    • Hi! I’ll ask my friend kung meron ng PLDT. I am not sure kc eh wla me sa Pinas. At hnd p rin kmi ng inquire kc eh wla p kmi balak lumipat. Cno contractor nyo? c Engr. Garcia ba? Sya kung contractor nmin at mabait sya kausap at pulido cla mgwork.

      • the last time nag inquire ako sa office ng camella pinaproject na daw ung line ng PLDT, pati nga ata ung line ng Manila waters inaayos na din nila, pero so far naman daw ok ung water system ng la montagna, yup, i requested engr. Garcia to be our contractor and nakanote na ito sa papers nmin, pababakuran ko na lang agad ung property after magawa ung bahay, actually ung issue ng nakawan ndi tlaga nawawala when in comes to subdivisions, adjustment na lang tlaga sa ‘ting mga homewners sa security, maganda ung place specially sa mga bata, sariwa ang hangin, at easy to access naman ito sa mga relatives ko at sa work, my first choice is crestwood antipolo, pero ung same unit, halos double ang price compare to la montagna…at may mga lugar sa Antipolo na nasa area ng Marikina fault line. Hopefully maging ok ung developments soon.

      • Saan ang location ng nbili nyo? Anong block at lot number? Hnd b mgkatabi ng lot ntin? hehhehe! Para share n tau mgbakod ng isang side. hahahah! Actually my friend ako sa palazzo at wla nman cya nbanggit sa akin n incident ng nakawan s knila. Yong nbili namin eh dun lng sa kalapit ng model houses, malapit sa round about. Cgro ung sinasabi mo eh sa La HAcienda.

    • Alam ko walang PLDT dito sa Teresa … meron man sa bayan lang siguro … kasi yung cable nga hindi ren umabot sa La Montagna kaya mapapansin mo na puro naka Satelite Dish(Cignal?) ang gamit nila.

      • saang part ng La montagna ung inopen na bakod para maka access ung mga taga labas? i mean saang block ito malapit? i will rise this issue sa office nila pagbalik ko, atleast para malaman nila.

      • Last time na na check ko nasa may Block 6 po yan … pag tinignan mo may bukas na bakod. kasya nga 4wheel na sasakyan dun sa bukas na bakod … alam ko meron isang baranggay dun e wala sila madaanan kaya pinabuksan ng Kapitan ng baranggay yung daan at sa La mOntagna na gate sila dumadaan .. sosyal diba? . Btw, yung kapitan ng baranggay taga La Montagna ren … kaya ang labo … pulitikuhan ang ngyari at walang magawa ang Camella nung nireklamo ko yan … kaya nag back-out na lang ako …

        kaya ko po nalaman yung nakawan dahil nakausap ko yung future neighbor ko sana and sabi nga nya nung walang tao daw sa bahay nila ay lagi sila nanakawan at mga taga dun nga yung hinala nila … tapos lately lang nabalitaan ko nanakawan yung isang friend ko dyan na malapit sa likod ng bahay ni Gabjumz…

        anyway sana maayos to ang sana mag improve pa ang La Montagna

      • btw, maganda yung location ni Gabjumz … marami na ren may bahay dun so iwas din siguro sa nakawan … kung ako sayo jefie … pili ka dun malapit sa circle … yung napili ko kasi dyan malapit sa Block 6 e mejo madilim dun sa lugar at hiwa hiwalay pa ng bahay …

      • Duanne ngback out ka pla? Kht sa ibang block sa La Montagna eh hindi kn kumuha? y? Teka sa Block 6 lot 51 pla kmi pro ung huz nmin eh sa circle at balita ko eh dami n rin nktira dun at pt ung mga model houses eh nbili na. San dun ang nkawan? Wla nman nbabanggit c hubby ko. Pro ask ko rin sya. balak tlg nmin eh mgpabakod muna before mg move in. anyway thanks! Sasabihan ko sya pra pt maireklamo sa camella.

      • Oo nag backout ako … yung nakuha ko dati nasa block 7 … yung kaibigan kong nanakawan nasa may likod nyo yun … block 7 din yata dun … anyway marami namang ways para mapigilan yang nakawan … kaya good buy pa ren yang sa la montagna

  171. kaya ako nag backout ay dahil mas naisip ko na mas bagay sakin ang condo at malapit sa work … pag kasi sa la montagna ako kumuha malaki nga bahay ko pero baka bihira lang may tumira … atleast sa condo mas madali pa-rent pag wala ako. pero kung ang hanap nyo ay house and lot na tahimik yung community at malayo sa city … tamang tama ang la montagna … wag lang kayo kukuha dun sa mabahong area(amoy baboy). dun kasi sa bandang palazzo at la hacienda mabaho na at sa ibang part ng la montagna ay nangangamoy na yung babayuyan …

  172. FYI…..
    to all homeowners in Lessandra hts. DAANGHARI, beware kc sa Mendrez street hindi pa man nakaka move-in nanakawan na sila…. pano ba naman ang BOBO ng Property Manager @ mga Guard na gung gong…. kung ano -anu inintindi kesyo bawal ang ganito.. ganyan… lalo na sa tindahan e sa loob lng naman, wala silang ma provide na store na malapit san kme bibili pag mga emergency na bagagy-bagay na kelangan..mga gate pass na kahit simpleng materials lang need pang GATE PASS…. O ngaun paano nyo e so solve yang nakawan na ganyan….

  173. Same here, I bought unit at Lessandra Executive-Daang hari.. Camella Engineers are beginners (mukha first job nila) and not professional when you raise your concern! wala response!! They started to build another subdivision within that area. wala man lang safety signage or wall para maprotektahan un mga residente dun sa area. Maalikabok! nagkalat ang mga construction boys!

    I dont know kung paano magiisip ang mga Engineers as they started the construction WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT SAFETY AND CONVINIENT NG MGA HOME OWNERS NA NASA PALIGID!

  174. Camella Engineers are beginners (mukha first job nila) and not professional > mukha naman e mga bata pa… lalo na yung Eng. Boom ba yon puro porma walang concern sa homeowners…. buti nalang na assign sya sa Cerritos hts. kundi eko- Complain ko yon sa CAMELLA STAR MALL ALABANG…..

  175. currently staying n lessandra heights daang hari.

    if makakahanap kayo ibang developer and subdivision.. pls do so.

    id rather go back sa bf resort village than here.

  176. Alam nyo hindi ako magtataka kung marami ang nag rereklamo sa CAMELLA,
    hindi ba nyo napanood yung comercial ni MANNY VILLAR noong election para pangulo, diba sanay sya sa basura kaya wag na kayo magtaka kung basura din ang ginamit nya sa mga bahay nyo hehehe joke phooo ang high blood nyo……

  177. I have a sentiments as well, bumili rin me sa camella ng house dito sa baliuag bulacan, it so happens na hindi kami makalipat because of the huge amount of Home Owners that was not discussed with us during the marketing. Yes, they informed us that the monthly fee is 650 but they did not inform us that we need to pay for the membership of 3000 plus 5 mos advance payment then for the water installation of 6500 with the total of Php 12750. I plea with the Property Manager if I can just pay the 6500 for the water installation first para makalipat na po kami kasi nangungupahan lng kami para kako makatipid kami then just give us another 15 days para dun sa home owners, ayaw pumayag pati ng Manager daw nila baka di na daw kami magbayad because there was an instance same case din nakiusap pero hangang ngayon di na binayaran kasi naibenta na ung house sa iba. Sa tingin ba nila lalayo kami e nandun ung house namin n kung tutuusin ay bayad n ng banko sa kanila. They just cared about the MONEY that they can collect from us. Ang daming nagrereklamo about this pero wala silang pakialam….

    Ngayon ko lng nalaman din na Camella hired another COMPANY to handle the HomeOwner Association, kapag may reklamo daw kami tungkol sa house kay CAMELLA kami dadaan kasi sila ung developer.. Sabi ko anong ginagawa ng Homeowners na ang laki ng binabayaran or babayaran namin if you can’t coordinate with the developer…

    Marami talagang nadadaya when it comes in SALES…. Yes, Maganda ang facilities and Security ng Camella pero sana don’t treat all the people who purchase a house and lot from you na MAYAYAMAN.. all of us are trying our best to have a decent home…. Dugo at PAWIS namin ang puhunan.

    I hope all the hidden fees will be discuss to the new and possible clients that they will be having in the future para di nman kawawa sa bandang huli because of this

    Ung house din namin umabot ng 1yr and 4 mos bago nagawa :( kasi mas inuna nila ugn malalaking bahay na nasa ung phase ng subdvision….

  178. We have made our first post on this blogsite last January 2012 asking for video and photo evidences from ALL OF THE COMPLAINANTS here, especially from those who have mentioned the name of their subdivision and the name of the alledged stupid or outrageous employees or agents of Camella, but still after 10 months, NONE OF THEM dare to show even a single exhibit. How could these LIARS and HIPOCRYTES gain attention and be trusted by the readers and visitors of this site? For those who posted complaints and negative issues SHOW YOUR EVIDENCES AND DOCUMENTS? You can never MANIPULATE the mindset of all the intelligent and analytical citizens of Philippines just by creating SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE.
    If you find our words inappropriate, then before you counter attack us, SHOW FIRST YOUR GUTS! REVEAL YOUR CLIPS AND DOCUMENTS NOW!
    We, therefore, strongly demand the destruction and termination of this blogsite which only creates confusion and intimidation for the concern public.
    Lastly, we justifiably declared that some, if not all the bloggers here were just “FRAUDULENT WHISTLEBLOWERS”

  179. HOA – who are you? Each of these bloggers have left their names. . . where is yours? You say you first made an official request for specific proof in January . . . I have been following this blog for nearly two years – and have never seen such request.

    IF YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN DEALING WITH the incompetence and frustration detailed here – - why don’t you GO TO THESE DEVELOPMENTS AND KNOCK ON THE DOORS? MAKE AN EFFORT TO FIND THESE PEOPLE!

    THEY ARE frustrated and angry — and they have wasted their life savings in a “Money Pitt” that has left them without recourse.

    AND BESIDES – - WHERE DO YOU WANT THEM TO TAKE THEIR DOCUMENTS? You don’t say in your comment – - what are they supposed to do – post them here?

    IF YOU REPRESENT MANNY VILLAR OR ANY OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS – THEN LET’S HAVE SOME NAMES – PHONE NUMBERS AND CONTACT INFORMATION …. SHOW THAT YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN ADDRESSING THESE SERIOUS PROBLEMS – -

    then

    I’m sure that this blog will go away.

    Tito gray

  180. Tito gray – who are you also?…. Before you ask for our real names, ask yourself first if you are sure that the the name given by each of the complainant here was their real name?…. You were saying that you have been monitoring this site for nearly 2 years, but didn’t you come accross with a thought to balance and analyze the materials in here?

    If we will revert the question back to you, will you also spend time and show interest to deal with these problems knowing the fact that it was very easy to approach the different investigative TV programs that can probe and broadcast the anomalies and irregularities of Camella but it seems that complainants here missed such idea……

    Do you think that different broadcasting networks would hesitate to air and show to the public all issues involving Manny Villar?…… If only these complaints here were credible, some, if not all media networks definitely cover these just like what they did on the controversial C5 road extension project masterminded by Manny Villar…….

    Now ask yourself again, have you ever watched any reports on television and radio of criminal or administrative charges against Camella?

    We, the HOA were not representing anybody…to be honest with you our group composed of the joint officials of homeowner’s association from the 8 Camella Subdivisions in South and in Metro Manila….

    We were also seriosly seeking the truth behind this as we would like to extend necessary help for those who were really victimized and suffered….only if they can prove to us their claims by means of credible evidences with their REAL NAMES and CONTACT NUMBERS…

    • hello sir
      i also buy a house from camela but im a foreigner .
      my wife is pinay and stays in the house.
      we also had very bad experience with camela house and for you to come and tell us we are wrong and lies is very absurb.
      you can contact me me anytime and i will show you so many owners at camela home in bacolod are very mad and unhappy.
      before you open ur mouth maybe you should come and see owners in person.
      contact me and we can meet at camela homes and i will present you to many unhappy and stress owner .
      thank you
      alain giroux my real name

    • Hello HOA – -
      My real name is Gray Gleason and I am NOT a Camella home owner. I have been reading this blog since about the third one, and I felt so very sorry for these people, it made me cry.

      I DID write into the blog – and advised these people that they should form some kind of “association of Camella Home victims” or something – and that they should approach the TV stations – the tripple x and “Inbestigator”, etc – - that they should pool their resources and try to get a lawyer to help them, etc….

      But one of the sad things that I came to realize (after my advice was pretty much ignored) was that THIS is exactly why Camella can get away with this stuff. Because they are dealing with poor Filipinos who will cry and moan all night long – - but will NOT go to the people who can actually DO something about it.

      I lived in Asia for more than 20 years – - and generally, this is the sad truth. I saw it among Filipino OFW’s in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and in other places – FILIPINOS OFTEN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OTHER FILIPINOS – - KNOWING THAT THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT….

      Yes, there are exceptions, but they are so very few. Camelia Homes – in these cases – is working on “low income” property. The profit margin is very very low – – and no matter WHAT kind of guarantee they may offer – the sad fact is that if they made good on their guarantee, it would put them in the red – - losing money. So they choose not to.

      At least that is what it seems to me. you can reach me at 1-714 – 881 – 4470 ….

  181. hello allain giroux,

    We would like to appreciate you for providing your rela name…we will soon arrange the necessary means to locate you eventhough you are very far from us here in Metro Manila…
    Anyway, before you open your mouth also, you should learn on how to humbly convince people offering their hands to share with your problem…. now im getting the real picture why Camella is not giving even a bit of attention….for sure SOME clients show up thier stunning arrogance to gain respect from others….

    • hello where ur real name
      i am a buyer and owner and work hard to buy and pay a house that falling apart
      i been very patient with camela house and as a buyer i should get good service and not lies after lies
      seem ur a agent or broker there the one who lies first just there for money
      after i complain and went to there office and yell i finaly got some repair done
      but still camela house are very poorly built and not worth the money
      seem you like to yap ur big mouth but never give ur real name or address who you are
      i told many people who wanted to buy a house at camela not to buy and they saw how poorly house are built and poor service
      also i can see ur a pinay as i see ur written so im sure ur just a agent or broker who is there just to lies and get ur bag of rice and money
      thank you
      alain giroux

  182. Hello alain giroux,

    Im Atty. Gatmaitan Elvinda, grandaughter of the late Judge Gatmaitan Jr. of Iloilo…and currently presiding as HOA official of Camella Subdivision located in Makati City….satisfied?

    For that, we would like to appreciate you once again for making the real picture more clear and more easy for the concern public to visualize what was the real attitude and intention of SOME complainants here….

    How could you convince people that you really cries for help if at the first instance you were accusing those who wanted to help you rather than expressing your sincerity?….

    Certainly, there was no articulate law that could also gag your big mouth and could also guide you on how to properly convey your grievances…but our being civilised individual dictates us to never make wanton dispaly of arrogancy especially to those people that we seek out for attention…

    We were not engage in doing business in here…but If by spreading blatant remarks and exaggerated precautions against Camella were the things that could relieve yourself form hatred and frustrations…we do understand you…..may you find peace in your life.

    Thank you.

    • hello who really you are
      like really
      i think camela agent broker and anyone working there like urself are just scam.
      i see that you like to b.s.
      we as owner and myself buy a house from camela and are very unhappy.
      why should we beg now for repair.
      i did get my repair done after i had to yell at the main office and made complain and after i told everyone how bad camela is.
      there contractor are workers from the farm and there personelare just students.
      camela is only there for the money.
      i would really like to meet you in person and see who really you are.
      i am in makati once a month with my associate for business with canadian embassy as i am canadian.
      so before you let ur big mouth telling people we should be nice and beg for repair and help, you should know we are paying these house and we are the custumer.
      camela should kiss our ass for forgenness and you also.
      i tell everyone who visit camela homes how bad they are and now they espect owner to be nice and beg them to repair our house badly built and cheap built.
      hope we can meet soon ,me and my assosiate would be very happy to meet soon.
      thank you
      alain giroux

  183. Hello Tito Gray,

    My real name is Atty. Gaitmaitan, Elvinda…and I AM a Camella homeowner and an elected HOA official on our subdivision….

    On behalf of my colleagues we wanted to pay due respect on you and appreciate your deep concern with Filipinos…also we wanted to commend you for initially providing an unsolicited advice on how the complainants here could resolve their issues….by presenting their issues to different TV investigative programs….and on this we’ve both reach into thesame point…

    But we would like to just express what we have noticed on some of your statements…please allow us to conversate in a manner that the concern public as well as the visitors and readers on this site could gain supplemental facts……

    First, here in our subdivision alone (Camella Makati) our neighborhood includes doctors, executives, engineers, lawyers (like me) and on the other Camella subdivisions, neighborhood includes people working abroad, OFWs like nurses, teachers, salesmen and hotel workers….so apparently, Camella is dealing with diffrent people from different walks of life…they are dealing with anybody who can afford to buy their products regardless of what society class they belong…

    We observed also that in many episodes of XXX, Imbestigador, BITAG and other similar programs…most of the featured complainants were VERY POOR, uneducated and powerless people who were abused, maltreated and cheated by any means….but the fact is they are making action with their problems even they have no money…..it basically means that, if poor people are courageous indeed to seek justice what more those people who preferred to buy house and lot worth more than a million or less….?

    So how come that most of the complainants here, with the adequate financial resources to pool and sufficiently educated minds to use, are all reluctant or get intimidated to have their issues to be documented and shown on news media?…please dont use the escape lines “BEING POOR FILIPINOS” for not having favorable means to resolve your problems…..

    Me and some of my co lawyers have been living in Philippines for about 53 years…and we saw the inspiring truth that most of Filipinos WILL GET RID OF OTHER FILIPINOS, ESPECIALLY IF THEY HAVE DONE WRONG….yes some will just cry and moan…. but eventually will find some preferential way….to DO SOMETHING about the problem.

    • Dear Ms Gaitmaitan – -

      Thanks for the clarification of your position and situation. I am aware that Camilla deals with all economic strata – - and obviously doctors, lawyers, and the like are much more likely to stand up for their rights – again, generally speaking.

      I can only speak to my own experience. I am married to a Filipina, and while she won’t let ANYONE push her around – I see the same trend in the family, nonetheless. If something is wrong, they will complain to EVERYONE EXCEPT those who can actually fix the problem….

      It is a wonder . . . and one that I saw again and again (as I said) among Pinoys in other countries. There, I saw House Maids who were forced to work 18 hour days – - often without any day off – and with little food. I saw employers illegally confiscate their passports and even slap them for some imagined wrong…. and they complained bitterly to their friends – - or to just about anyone who would listen – - but did they complain to the Philippine Labor Office? To an NGO? No.

      For every one that complained to an official who could do something — there are probably between 50 and 100 who do not. So when I saw this blog, it really did not surprise me that much, that in spite of offering advice on how to solve their problems – - this advice was not acted upon.

      Of course, rich or poor, a person can only be pushed so far before they simply cannot take any more – witness the fight against the Spanish, the Americans, and more recently the Edsa Revolution . . .

      Your organization’s earlier letter pointed out a possibility that – honestly – never occurred to me …. that someone is bad-mouthing Camilla Homes just because they have a grudge – - and that they may not even have a real problem…. Maybe this is why they have never banded together – or taken their complaints to the broadcast media – I don’t know.

      If this is the case – then HOA and Camilla certainly have a reason to be angry.

      BUT if this is NOT the case – - and some, or many, or ALL of these complaints are TRUE. . . would HOA be willing to represent them in some kind of action? Will YOU GUYS champion their cause?

      I think that would be a really cool thing to do – but obviously, either way, you do need to find the truth of these complaints.

      Good luck to you

      aloha
      tito gray

  184. Hello who really you are also?

    It seems to us like you are shaking out of guilt…you better get some gallons of water to drink now before you get worst….

    By the way, have your read our last comment for Tito gray and we know for sure readers and visitors on this site could probably noticed the way we replied to each and every comment….

    We provide meaningful, significant and serious replies on comments from decent and respectful citizen like Tito Gray….but we throw trash replies on comments from animal, barbaric and arrogant “canadian wanna-be” like you…

    We are wondering how could you manage your “monkey business” if you dont even know how to manage your temper…and dont even know how to wash your trash mouth…..

    Lastly, we dont care who ever you are? kick your ass back to your planet….we dont need allien here who cannot get over with his frustration in life….

    Thank you….

    • dear big mouth
      why so upset
      seem you must be one of those lyers who work for camela
      i am canadian and proud of it
      we at least know ho wto built houses and respect buyers
      camela is a scam
      my house was repair finaly with me and my associate going to there main office daily
      also why camela denying police officer and anyone in related to police from buying a house at camela, would it be that they know there are scams.
      so maybe befor eyou open ur big trashy mouth we should meet and talk and see who really you are.
      seem you just another scam from camela.
      also my nieghbor house roof just fall last night,due to bad steel install for roof.
      was too small 8mm instead of the coded 12 cheap again and no inspection.
      many of my nieghbor know now how to get there repairs done by my recommendation.
      we also got out rep replace twice for bad custumer representive as they have big mouth like urs.
      the best way to deal with ur kind with big mouth no action is to meet in person.
      thankl you
      let me know when we can meet.

  185. Dear Mr. Gray,

    Thank you also for clearing that you are aware that Camella is dealing with different KABAYANS (other term for Pinoys) contrary to your statement on your previous post that Camella is dealing with poor Filipinos because they are not doing anything with their problems and just let destiny decides….anyway, we will not argue on that pont if you and other people really feel it that way…we need to respect your opinion as co-bloggers…

    However, Mr. Gray, our main issue here is why most of the complainants here are not presenting any kinds of evidence that we could be use for verifying the claims and implement whatever necessary legal or administrative actions which we think suitable to resolve some, if not all the issues here….definitely you know the prosecution process anywhere….it’s the evidence and witness that convicts a man…

    It is sad to know you already gave up your will to push them to show up their documents to make all these issues more justifiable and easy to believe…meaning no one really expose anything visually….

    Thank you for mentioning as your example SOME abused Pilipina maid who dont want to report their case on appropriate NGO or proper government labor office and SOME Filipinos who joined Spanish, American and EDSA revolt because they cannot take anymore oppression…..the bottomline here is NOT ALL OF THEM keep on silence….

    Definitely you know that there were numerous case of maltreated house maids which was documented and presented with videos on different TV programs and so the public gave their symphaty….and for the case of revolts the bottom line is that news programs (talking about EDSA revolt) show their grievances and reasons why they make people power and so the public understand and believe them…..

    Now going back to our main topic, the issues of the many complainants here….did anybody, since year 2009 up to now, have shown a single exhibit of picture or short film of the alledged anomalies of the Camella projects and annoying staffs….? why do they KEEP ON THE DARK..?

    We will highly appreciate anyone who could stand up and help us, as well as the concern public to see the real everything….then if we will found out that these matter is worth of serios investigation and litigation….

    HOA and CAMELLA HOMES will pave the way to get the necessary actions to be done….

    God Bless You,

    mabuhay!
    HOA

    • HOA – -

      Thanks for your respectful and well crafted response, and your obvious desire to get to the bottom of all these accusations.

      I am not really in a position to help – which is why I suggested that they band together and form some kind of group. Strength in numbers, and all that sort of thing.

      In any case, I do hope that one way or another, these issues can be resolved –

      Thank you for your time and interest. Salamat po – and God Bless you too!

      aloha

      Tito gray

  186. Dear “canadian wanna-be”

    Look who’s with a big mouth and talks too much?

    If you are really Canadian….then you must be a disgrace to your race…..understood? is that the way Canadians treat ladies huh?… i dont think so….unless your are gay….OMG! yeah, that’s why you talk too much than me….OMG!……ARE YOU GAY!?

    Enough, here is 1 peso and look for Bumbay who will waste his time for a frustrated people like you…..

    • dear big mouth camela agent
      such loser like you make canadian think all philippines are scams
      that why so many of philippines woman marry foreigner as people like you are just big mouth and no action.
      just scam and lier to steal hard earn money from foreigner even ur own race.
      go hide underneath ur rock and drink rum.
      that why my house was rebuilt and repair done as a real canadian i was not scared or shy to and force camela to do the proper repair.
      as you told mr gray your,re not in any position do to anything,so i recomment to shut ur big mouth and let the owner who spend money to keep telling everyone who are interested in buying a camela house that is a bad idea and think twice.
      thank you
      ps when can we meet big mouth scam agent

  187. I want to thank all unfortunate homeowners of this blog…until coming across this site my filipina wife who along with myself is now Canadian was seriously considering purchasing a home in Camella subdivsion for her father due to close proximity to hospital/relatives etc.

    I imagine it must be very difficult now for Camella to sell anything now with such bitter comments.

    ‘Where there’s smoke, there’s fire’

    • hello andrew
      you made the right choice
      i also am canadian who marry a filipina lady and unfortunately we buy a camela house and had problem since day one.
      we are doing the repair so we can sell it ,hopefully.
      then buy a lot and have real contractor and proffessionel building it.
      but we will still have to supervised it daily as contractors in philippines are not like in canada and no inspection is done.
      im happy this site made you do the right desision

    From all of us here in team HOA, we thank you as well for being such a nice gentleman and commentator who can handle his thoughts and opinions accordingly…you are one of a kind person worth remembering for you know how to be relax and how to respect women….

    Moreover…your Filipina wife is so lucky for having you as husband because of your attitude….we admire you for having a sense of humility and diplomacy which is HIGHLY required on a forum(or debate) whenever and wherever…

    We also recognized you for despite being on the side of those MYSTERIOUS complainants here…you remain calm and decent in dealing with us….we did not actually expect that, as one of the unhappy blogger here, you will give a humble and meaningful reaction to us…

    However…we seriously expected MUCH that as we entered this forum…many opponents will baricade our way and are determined to oppose our views…

    Like an idiot, wildbeast GAY out there who’s “PRETENDING” as canadian and businessman….but dont even know how to engage on a formal forum like this….dont even know how to organize his thoughts…dont even know how comprehend each comments….dont even know how to accept defeat….and worst,,,dont even know how to respect a woman despite being married to a Filipina as well….the readers(especially all Filipna) can see on top the comments made by this “canadian wannabe” against ALL FILIPINA….then we will now let you handle such pathetic frustrated person….

    Anyway, back to you Mr. Gray…we are commited with you on our advocacy for thruth behind this….hoping that they will now unite and altogether BRING UP THEIR EVIDENCES on news programs or different social networking sites…

    SALAMAT DIN PO SA ORAS MO…..

    God Bless You

    mabuhay!

    • hey big mouth agent who lies
      only way to make scamer like u and camela is to yell and go at there office and tell everyone how bad you are.
      did u hear from everyone who buys a house from camela they are unhappy
      i know ur just some cheap scam poor agent who try very hard to lie to everyone but we are the buyers and we are the one who have the money
      if u want to see evedence come to bacolod block 14 lot 2 and see me and our neighbor
      but just like anyone at camela your,re just a big mouth stealing from people and you have no education or respect for camela owners
      also visit me you will see im french canadian and been canadian all my life
      also you can contact my office in ottawa at alaingiroux@hotmail.com
      or visit my website you dump poor camela scam agent
      read all the complain before you open your dirty big mouth

    • hey big mouth agent
      my wife just call me that after all the complain and also reading this site camela is replace our door witch was install crooked and wall witch has weak cement cause builder put more water in the cement so they can steal the it and re sell.
      they are also repairing our neighbor window and door they also made big complain at camela head office.
      so you see this site and yelling and pushing lazy lying and scamer at camela paid off.
      there no other way
      only agent and broker and other weak staff at camela think we should shut up and not say a word thinking we will go away and accept all the bs from camela.
      owners please keep writing and calling camela and they will do the repair eventualy.
      and make sure you stay and sipervised cause we know camela dont have very good worker or smart people working for them.
      hope you have read the comment from people who now know that ur a fraud and know camela is a very bad place to buy a house.

  189. Dear bloggers and commentators,,,,,,,

    it really seems to us that SOMEONE is begging for our attention……right?

    well if this gay is true with his exagerrated accusations, then we think he really deserves all the bad things happening to him now…that is what we called consequence(KARMA) of being conceited towards other people….we are sure that you can figure out now why this gay was left behind…

    Definitely even he will buy to ayalands or any other developer he will surely experience the same because he cannot hide his barbaric, rude, arrogant manner….he makes everyone annoyed by his face!

    Reminder! you cannot always use your money and society status to have a smooth transactions….sometimes it is RESPECT and sense of HUMILITY for the people around you that makes our life easier….

    This will be our last words for you…if creating negative remarks and sharing your exagerrated bad experiences will relieve yourself from hatred, frustration and INSECURITY….we do understand you…may you find peace in your life.

    • to big mouth
      seem you are not a very smart person
      not very much education and cant understand what you read.

      it the only way anyone will get there house repair.
      i invited to meet you in person or to meet me at camela but seem you just like to open your big mouth and insult owners then help .

      so before you open your big uneducated mouth visit owners and myself and you will see.
      my house is being repair cause i never stop harrasing them until they do.
      seem like everyone at camela is like you that why it has a bad name now and people are unhappy.
      maybe your parents are brother and sister just wondering.
      must be very sad to be you.

  190. Dear HOA,

    Can you be more specific where is your location in Makati? I havent heard any Camella subdivision in Makati Area…

    If you want any proof that Camella developer ignored any complaints issues of home owners you can simply drop by on there new build subdivision in Lessandra Heights Daang Hari.. You and your so called group can have a survey.. You can contact as well there Engineers sucn as Engr Boom, Raymond & Jobel Tan.. they are all Newbies Engineer of Camella who doesnt know how to handles home owners concerns & issues..

    • dear john
      you will never get anyone from camella to visit you to show and prove how much there home they badly built.
      i invited them as i prove i was calm and waited them after 6 months had to take big measure and presure them and finaly got some repair done before warranty is over.
      many of my neighblr waited patiencetly and never complain and after one year were told warranty over so no repair was done
      this hoa i presume is just a agent and just a big mouth that cant do anything
      good luck john

  191. hoy ALAIN GIROUX, napakayabang mo magsalita sa kapwa tarantado ka! matapobre kapang lintek ka! para kang gagong putak ng putak! ibigay mo kompletong address mo dito at pupuntahan ka namin bukas na bukas! kapag hindi mo ibinigay address mo iisaisahin namin ang camella bacolod at hahanapin namin and ibinigay mong numero ng bahay mo! antayin mo kami punyeta ka!

  201. MY GOD!!!! 2 years na kami nag babayad sa LESSANDRA CAMELLA HOMES,TALAMBAN CEBU CITY!! PERO HANGGAANG NGAYON LUPA PA RIN!!! KAHIT KUNTI WALA GINAWA!! ANONG KLASE CAMELLA ITO???? ACTION NYO NAMAN BLOCK 2 LOT 96 ITO!!! WE NEED AN ATTORNEY!!! THIS NOT JOKE!!!!!!

  202. Just want to share also, naka bili rin kami sa may pit os talamban- mariana uphill. as they promise after completion of equity dapat ma i turn over na nila ang bahay til now after 2 years wala pa rin na i tayo. just wanted to get some advise how to cancel or mag backout. please share.

  203. With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate
    it.

  204. balak nmn kumuha ng bahay sa camella, actually nagpareserved n kami ng 15,000.. hindi p nmin pinapasa un ibang doc. like spa, deed of sale n may pirma nmin ksi binabasa p nmin tlga.. while i’m reading these complains ngiisip n tuloy kmi kung kukuha p b kami or hindi na.. pls help…

  205. sino dto ang kumuha na sa camella frontiera sto. thomas? ok ba un service ng camella dun? wala ka ba nkikita pang mga problema? kukuha p lng kasi kami.,,, pls advise

  206. For Camella Bacolod, Ako poy isang OFW at nagtatrabaho malayo sa pamilya para lang mabigyan sila nang magandang bahay at kunting ginhawa sa buhay. Please consider naman sana, nafully paid na po nang Bangko ang bahay at lupa(Lessandra) namin, at nakapagbayad na kame para sa Electricity line, pero hanggang ngayon wala paring electricity ang unit namin at di nyo pa nalilinis ang mga lupa or gravel during construction. Ayoko pong siraan ang Camella Bacolod dahil mababait naman po ang mga staff dyan, yon lang parang kulang sa tamang action.

    Maraming salamat.

  207. If only I have read this forum I wouldn’t have bought at all from Camella Baliwag. I paid cash for a unit that was delivered 4 months late. All the material that went in the house are substandard and I have to spend money to fix it. I’m so happy I bought the cheapest unit available. To make matters worse the property is not fenced off. There’re multiple incidences of theft since we moved in. We have to borrow money to fence off a portion with semi-squatter areas. the camella baliwag bulacan management are the worst incompetents I have ever encountered in my entire life. who are they? julius – the property manager. shane – the customer service rep. randy – the property engineer. saan ka nakakita ng subdivision na labas pasok kahit sino? shame on these people. if you still buy from camella baliwag after reading this you have only yourself to blame. save yourself the frustration. buy somewhere else.

  208. hello everyone, you are not just one who is having too much frustration with Camella. I bought a house in Lipa City – Plantacion and todate, the house is still ongoing despite the fact that my 20% has been paid last June 2012, and the bank paid them July 2012..I expect this should be at least in its 95% completion, yet this is still in its 20%.. hay grabe and camella.. hard earned natin samantalang napakinabangan na ang pera natin.. mahiya naman ang owner kung talagang may dignidad sya..

  209. tama po lahat ng mga BAD COMMENTS niyo….i have a neighbor, a subcontractor of camella homes..at nagwork ang ate ko sa office nila(neighbor)…SUBSTANDARDS ang mga gamit :)..lumaki ang CAMELLA dahil sa dami ng naloko nila ….at dun sa nagsabi na madaming inggit kay MV…walang kainggit inggit sa may ari nito… :) sinusumpa kana ng mga naloko mo kaiinggitan ka pa?…

  210. Good day po sa lahat ako din mo nagka problema sa Camella paano ko po ba mababawi yung downpayment ko almost paid na po ako, ang nangyari po kasi hindi man lang ako nila na inform na hindi ako na approve sa bank kasi po may record ako ng utang ang hirap po ngayon kung itutuloy ko pa po ba sya nakipag usap na ako sa Camella sabi bigyan daw nila ako update after a week wala pa pa akong na rereceive na feedback tawagan mo hindi nila sinagot ang cellphone nila, tanong ko lang po totoo po bang hindi na makukuha yung downpayment kasi sayang naman.. kasi gusto nila manyari mag in house ako pero grabe po ang interest nila halos trple na .. gusto ko lang po maisoli yung downpayment ko kait bawasan na nila may mabawi lang ako.. maraming salamat po

    • parang di mo na mabawi ang anumang nabayad mo na sa camella kung wala ka pang 2 taon na nagbabayad.kung may 2 taon kana nagbabayad may matatanggap kang refund pero may deduction na yun.basahin mo nalang yung reservation agreement contract nandoon yan

  211. Dear Camella home owners,

    I was also planning to buy a Camella property in Bulacan Provence, Malolos and have seen their model house, must say it looks nice.

    However, reading all these comments is making me think twice about actually buying it since i sure dont want 3 M to get stuck with a developer where previous owners are having complaints.

    Any real feedback may i have as to how good or Bad Camella is ?

    Would want to know from Tito gray, alain giroux if their problems were resolved or not ?

    Also does the property in Malolos provence appreciate ? i mean am buying a 3 bedroom house for 3 M in 2013 how much can i expect it to be in say 2015.

    Also what happened to HOA, did they help or was it just a keyboard warrior ?

    Really looking forward for feedback since i am planning to buy in March 2013.

    Regards

    Jonathan

    • hello jonathan
      as of now only part was repair as they are saying that the builder has been kick out by camela homes so we are still waiting
      our fire wall is crack now due to poor cement and bad contruction
      our house is only 10 months old
      they are waiting till april to tell us that no more warranty
      i had to hire real proffesional to do some repair
      also now water is brown and smelly and they tell us its normal
      the best thing is to built ur own house get real proffesional and estimate and overview the contruction
      we are now repainting and repairing the house so we can sell soon
      thank

      alain giroux

    • hello jonathan

      but builder was kick out by camela so no one came back to finish

      my fire wall now is cracking due to poor cement mostly sand
      and crack door and wall
      also now water is smelly and brown they say its normal
      the best thing is to get proffesional to built ur house and to be there to overview the contruction
      we had to hire proffesional to repair the house
      we plan to re paint for the 3 time and repair and sell
      also security is bad as many house had been robbed
      we are still waiting for more repair but no one has come back
      thank
      alain giroux

  212. Hello All!
    Hope you can guide me on what to do with our problem with Camella. When I had the lot measured through an independent contractor, we found out that it was short of what we signed up for. I informed the bank to hold the loan release so that Camella will be forced to settle this. I was told by the agent that the cost will be adjusted but I disagreed because the lot size was already small to begin with.
    Do you have any idea on what are my legal options? Is there really no hope that I could reclaim the original size?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Dear Marie

      In case the lot area is smaller (more than 5 % difference in what is stated vis a vis actual, if it is 5 % difference of less, forget about it, not worth the fight, i have experienced it already though not with Camella ) than what is written in the SPA then Camella is legally bound to make good for the payment you have made for the larger lot.

      However holding on the loan may not be a very good idea unless your bank has not released most of the payment, plus as a bank they cannot stop the loan release to the developer only on the basis of your compliant.

      Your options, in my view are limited and if i were you i would done the the following : (incase you have already put in a substansial amount)

      1. Make the payments on time, dont delay;
      2. Submit a written complaint giving all possible details and attaching copies of SPA, the payments made and the certificate from independent contractor stating the actual size of your lot;
      3. Insisit on stamped reciept of your complaint letter;
      4. Followup with reminders and letter and retain the copies of the same along with acknowledgement, create a paper trail of your followups;
      5. Do not take pocession of the house, this is the key, dont take pocession unless your complaint is resolved.

      If you have not given substansial amount then withhold the remaining payments unless they give you the lot size which you had wanted or give you the commitment in writing of adjusting the cost at a later specified date.

      Hope it helps and you are able to get what is rightfully yours.

      regards.

      • Dear Jonathan,

        Thanks so much for your reply.

        I have already discussed this with the agent, admin, and site engineer today. They have agreed to give me the original lot size by extending the front. They are also going to give me a new plan to make sure it’s official.

        Regards.

  213. hello camella: good day to everyone, i just wanna ask something from you. because i bought a lot only in camella sto.tomas batangas, and my plan is to build a house but the finance of the house will come from my own, meaning i will not borrow or loan from any private bank or institutions like pag-ibig, but instead from my own money. is this possible? your reply is highly appreciated.thank you and god bless!

  214. iinisin ka sa mga requirement at sa mga payment hanggang sa umayaw ka na pero di naman sa maibabalik ang nahulog mo na kahit magreklamo ka sa HLURB, dapat ang HLURB ay MAGISING SA KANILANG TRABAHO

  215. hay buhay,pag nagbigay ka na ng pera tapos ka kung di mo manlang itutuloy sayang talaga ang pera mo masyadong mahal ang lupa na ianaalok, mabilis lang kumuha ng pera pero pag refund na mahirap na walang refund pa magaling mag entertain pag bibili ka ng lupa. pag may problem ka na iwanan sa ere madali kumuha ng lupa kahit konting requirements lang ok na pero pag may problem na dapat sobra-sobra ang requirements at aabutin ka talaga ng taon. wag nyo po sana sayangin ang pera nyo “LALO NA SA OFW BUMILI KAYO NG BAHAY O LUPA MISMO AT MAKAKATIPID KAYO AT MAS MATIBAY AT MAS MAGANDA ANG MAKUKUJHA NYO WAG NYO SAYANGIN ANG PINAG HIRAPAN NYO SA ABROAD DAHIL LANG SA PAG BILI NG HULUGAN NA BAHAY MASYADONG MAHAL AT ANG QUALITY MABABANG URI” marami pang bahay at wag sana kayo masilaw sa pag alok ng mga agent ng mga subdivision ..

  216. pwede po ba namin isoli yung lupa nabili namin sa camella.or carissa homes sa woodbridge pandi bulacan? pwede po ba namin ibenta sa inyo ulit yun nabili namin na lupa?

  217. Update on Camella Leyte as of Feb. 6, 2013
    Still no water supply. Para sa mga gustong kumuha ng unit sa camella leyte huwag nyo ng ituloy. Phase 1 of Camella Leyte Campetic Palo with about 600 houses constructed and sold, wala pang 50% ang nag move-in dahil sa walang tubig. kawawa nga ibang bahay na walang nakatira dahil parang luma na ang mga bahay nila dahil sa walang maintenance (imagine nag invest ka ng aabot 1million u higit pa tapos di mo magamit bahay mo dahil lang walang tubig). Phase 2 of Camella leyte still at campetic palo – on going construction – sana wala ng magpaluko. At merong pa silang bagong site still at palo- wala pang construction. Sa mga buyer bago kayo bumili kausapin nyo muna mga home owner sa camella leyte campetic palo para malaman niyo ang tutuo.

  218. paano po magin contractor ng camella, bagong contractor lang po ako , nag submit ako ng profile sa EDADES project sa guadalupe, nag tread test po ako ng 1 month , pasado nman po ako sa quality nila…. kaso baba ng price tapos taas ng quality, lugi ako …. sabi nila tapusin ko lang daw yung tile works , bigyan nila ako CHB laying and Plastering , para mkabawi ako sa tiles…. nag try cla sa mga tao ko sa tiles, ayaw na ako paalisin , bigyan nila ako pambawi, kayo ba gusto nyo din ako i try( 2010 project pa kc yun kaya yung price ng tilesetting price pa ng 2010: I understand nman nxt project nlang daw ako bumawi: accredited na ako sa HILMARK Construction as subcontractor ) …email: aragon_acts@yahoo.com(Aragon Construction Services)

  219. wow!! buti nakita ko itong blog na ito dahil ako man ay isa sa mga customers ng Camella. Pagakabakasyon naming mag-asawa last Sept, naengganyo kaming kumuha sa SJDM, Bulacan, yung LESSANDRA SUDB nila. We chose MARGA kc maganda ang pinakita sa aming Model House. And since naive pa kaming pareho sa mga ganito, nagbayad kami ng 10k. But before that, nagtatanong muna ako dun sa office nila mismo sa loob ng STARMALL sa San Jose Del Monte Bulacan. Pero ang sagot sa akin, BAYARAN ko daw muna ang 10k taz me parang counselling after. Dun palang alam mong me iba na eh, kc non-refundable ang reservation na 10k dba? what if me ayaw kang nalaman and decided not to continue nlng within that hour? That what happen to us. BAWAL DAW ME NEGOSYO KAHIT NA ANO SA BAHAY MO SINCE RESIDENTIAL LANG DAW TALAGA YUN. Eh, negosyo lng naman ang bagsak naming mga OFW kung ayaw na naming mag abroad dba? magkakaedad na kaming mga OFW pagbalik kaya hirap ng makahanap ng trabaho sa Pinas. Then BAWAL BAGUHIN ANG FRONT NG BAHAY, OK LANG SA SIDE. Eh yung front ang may malaking empty area eh, hindi ang gilid!!!

    So nung bumalik kami dito sa labas, hindi na namin tinuloy. Donation nalang namin yung 10k sa pagtakbo ni Villar, hahaha!

  220. nag ka bahay kami dyan sa SJDM sa palmera, pero ayus nman … kung ayaw nyo yung design eh d paayus nyo nlang since may pera nman kayo, 3 years na kami sa housing ni villar, pero ang pangit sa nasabi mo , ehyung bawal magtayo ng bussiness…. kapitbahay sana kita kung sa lessandra ka… kung gus2 mo ulit ako ang mag hanap sa tabi namin, contractor ako sa construction , kung d mo magustuhan yung itsura ng bahay reconstruct natin … bago lang ako kayatingin ko kaya mo presyo ko … sa area na nakuha ko kc pwede kahit anung bussiness…(open sa legal bussiness) thanks, Ron.. 09194899728(aragon_acts@yahoo.com) Sa guadalupe 1st project ko sa Ayala grabe taas ng quality gusto nila pero yung presyo grabe ang pangit sagad sa manggagawa ko , pero dahil nag uumpisa plang ako kuha lang ako certification sa kanila na kaya ko quality nila….

    • Ronquillo Aragon, comment mo ba mismo etong sabi mong panget abt sa bawal mag business sa LESSANDRA SJDM? Bakit hindi mo itanong mismo dun sa office nila sa Starmall? iyan po ang MISMONG SINABI nila sa aming mag-asawa. Mariel ang name ng agent at CATHY naman ang name nung nasa office mismo.

      Tsaka I am talking about CAMELLA LESSANDRA SUBD Ron, hindi sa PALMERA. Maybe iba’t ibang rules sa iba’t ibang Subd basta iyan ang isa sa inayawan namin, ang bawal mag business. Me tinignan na rin kami sa CARISSA pero sa BFS naman, yung mga abandonadong bahay na. But that’s a different story naman.

      Tsaka may mga OFW po na hindi na nakapaghulog sa Pag-Ibig dahil sa mga charges ng padala, kaya out sa equation ang HDMF sa amin.

  223. HDMF kc ako dumiretso , kaya cguro mabilis k nalipatan , sinabi agad na as is were is…. bilis nman ng proceso… mag advance payment k nga ng 10k sa 1 year mababawasan nman ang monthly mo… 118 sqm ko 2k nlang monthly, sakin bilis ko nman nakuha , napalipat ako sa palmera kc nung undoy nasa work ako , buti nalang nandun mga kapatid ko ng lalaki , kung hindi , sayang lahat ng pinaghirapan ko …

  224. ewan ko sa kanila bakit cla nag kaka problema , bka nman kc sa agent nyo yan , ako kc hindi dumaan sa agent…. rekta ako sa HDMF.

  225. Tsaka pa pala, bagong Subd yung Lessandra, wala pang bahay. Makikita mo ang lugar sa FB account ko https://www.facebook.com/Sun.sales so baka iba-iba ang patakaran nga nila.

    Ronquillo Aragon: “….contractor ako sa construction , kung d mo magustuhan yung itsura ng bahay reconstruct natin…”

    correction po (ayon din sa agent at taga Camella na nakausap ko) , HINDING-HINDI PWEDENG BAGUHIN ANG KUNG ANO ANG MODEL NG BAHAY. kaya nga po may MODEL HOUSE na pinapakita dba, kasi iyon ang susundin..

    • tama k dyan …. inspect mo nman if magustuhan mo yung actual location … bago nman cguro i turn over sau yung bahay , pwede mo na ito siyasatin, and mag bigay agad ng comments na bakit may ganito -bakit ganyan – and bakit pangit ang actual sa model house… sensya na po d ko alam kung paano kc ang life sa duamaan sa agent… sori tlaga

      • yun naman pala eh, sabi ko na nga ba at hindi tayo parehas ng tinutunton sa usapin eh hehehe… Bigla po kc kayong pumalag eh hindi nyo naman po pala alam ang kalakaran sa ganito. WALA AKONG SINABING PANGIT ang MODEL HOUSE. kukuhanin ba namin kung NAPAPANGITAN KAMI?

        kaya nagtaka ako ako agad sa isang comment mo na pinopromote mo agad ang pangongontrata mo. Eh me sariling contractor na ang Camella dba?

      • LAGI NMAN MAGANDA ANG MODEL HOUSE, DAMI NAG REREKLAMO KC SA KINUKUHA NILANG MGA HOUSING, DBA PINAPA INSPECTION MUNA YAN BAGO I TURN OVER…

  226. NAG REREKLAMO KC CLA SA CRACKS SA LOOB NG HOUSING NILA , SA AMIN KC LOANABLE PA NGA SA PAG IBIG ANG RE CONSTRUCTION NG BAHAY NAMIN KUNG GUSTONG BAGUHIN… BASTA TAPOS KNA MAG BAYAD SA BAHAY NYO, CLA PA MAG OFFER IF GUSTO MO NA I RE CONSTRUCT..
    KAYA CGURO MAG KAIBA TAYO , KC PALMERA HOMES , KAY VILLAR DIN YAN DBA,… MAS MURA NG 3 TO 4 TIMES… YUN NGA LANG IKAW MAG PAGAWA IF D MO MAGUSTUHAN ANG ITSURA…

  227. WALA KC SAMIN SINABI NA SA ISANG CONTRACTOR LANG KAMI MAG PAGAWA, BIGAY LANG NAMIN YUNG DESIGN NA MAY SIGNATURE NG ARCHITEC AND ENGINEER , KAHIT KANINUNG CONTRACTOR N NAMIN IPAGAWA PWEDE “DAW”. NAG HIGPIT NA CGURO SI LESSANDRA – C PALMERA KC MABAIT PA ATA

    • Ronquillo, ang specific blog na ito po ay TUNGKOL sa CAMELLA kaya nasa iisang bangka kami sa usapin ng ibang commenters dito. Yung PALMERA nyo naman po, baka iba rin po ang patakaran doon at hindi por que at kay Villar rin eh iisa lang ang kalakaran. dba sa kaya din ang CROWN ASIA? iba din doon.

      we are talking abt CAMELLA here. May sariling contractor, di pwedeng baguhin ang design, bawal magnegosyo, etc, etc, etc. eh mejo nagulo lang bangs namin kc yung mga nauna mong comments mukhang kakaiba, yun pala PALMERA ang kwento mo, CAMELLA naman sa amin :)

      • ahh eh d may pag pipilian pla…

        Crown Asia———–bawal mag re construct/ bawal mag legal bussiness(as
        per this post)
        Camella—————bawal mag re construct/ bawal mag legal bussiness(as
        per this post)
        Lessandra————bawal mag re construct/ bawal mag legal bussiness(as
        per this post)
        Palmera ————-open for re construction / open for legal bussiness
        open for re design.

        ito pwede na po ba….

        sensya na po sa inyo , kc isa ako sa inundoy, lahat ng pmangkin ko nag ka trauma pati anak ko , kaya naging bakasyunan namin ang palmera, kaya ganyan nlang utang ko kay villar , now nawala na takot nila sa bagyo…
        bumalik n ulit kami ng Novaliches….

      • Ronquillo, hindi ko inaattack si Villar dito, ikaw ang nagmention ke Villar sa usapan na natin. we are talking abt the business here, not the man itself.

        tsaka po, ang LESSANDRA ay name ng SUBDIVISION, at ang CAMELLA at PALMERA ay mga HOMEBUILDERS. diko naman inaalis seu ang karapatan mong tumanaw ng utang na loob kay Villar dahil jan, pero negosyo yan eh, di papahalagahan ng mga negosyante ang utang na loob kapag dika nakabayad. kung nagbackread ka dito sa blog na ito (ako binasa ko lahat), yung paggawa ng bahay, kalidad ang nirereklamo at hindi si Villar.

        Just stating the facts lang po dito.

  228. Lessandra hts. daanghari molino IV, mag BOBO na mga “GLOBAL LAND” palibhasa kapag nagkaroon na ng board members na talagang HOMEOWNERS e itchapwera na sila. mga bulok na sistema mga pinalalakad nyo dyan. yung mga PM na BOBO at walang alam kundi ma migay ng mga rules “kono” nag-aaksaya lang kayo ng papel pera naman namin yan!!!! start kay iver na BOBO lahat na pinagbawal kulang nalang bawal huminga!!!!
    ayon nasan na sya ngayon ??? ang pinalaka latest e, yung babae na PM.
    mag bulok na sa sistema… share ng clubhouse san ka makakakita ng ganun 2 executive subd. share ng clubhouse isama pa nila CERITTOS TERRACES

  229. sa paggamit ng clubhouse… at talagang sila pa naunang gumamit ng clubhouse dun ba naman venue ng xmass party ata ng mga agent ng mga camella at vista land.

  230. implementing rules stupid…
    check mo mga BOBO sa LESSANDRA HTS….mga bulok na palakad… hintayin nyung umabot tayo sa IMBESTIGADOR para pati career ni cynthia villar for senator makaladkad….

  231. tama po lahat ng mga BAD COMMENTS niyo….i have a neighbor, a subcontractor of camella homes..at nagwork ang ate ko sa office nila(neighbor)…SUBSTANDARDS ang mga gamit :) ..lumaki ang CAMELLA dahil sa dami ng naloko nila ….at dun sa nagsabi na madaming inggit kay MV…walang kainggit inggit sa may ari nito… :) sinusumpa kana ng mga naloko mo kaiinggitan ka pa?

  232. Meron din po ako house sa camella heights pangasinan. Nung nagmamarket sila lagi nila sinasabibi na meron bridge from phase 1 to phase 3… pero 7 years na po until now walang bridge at wla na yata sila plano. Pangakong napako. Ang kawawang juan dela cruz na nagpatayo ng bahay.. gumastos ng milyon.. Nagsakripisyo at nagpakahirap para makapagpatayo ng bahay ay halos ayaw na tirahan ang pinatayong bahay dahil bukod sa malayo ang iikutan.. delikado pa ang daan. Isa pang problema ay mabaho ang simoy ng hangin dahil sa piggery. Sa ngayon isa kami sa sinisisi ng mga kaibigan namin dahil nakabili din sila ng lote na.pinaghirapan din nila pero wala.ng.plano ang camella para sa pangakong tulay.

  233. currently staying n lessandra heights daang hari.

    if makakahanap kayo ibang developer and subdivision.. pls do so.

    id rather go back sa bf resort village than here.

  234. Hello HOA – -
    My real name is Gray Gleason and I am NOT a Camella home owner. I have been reading this blog since about the third one, and I felt so very sorry for these people, it made me cry.

    I DID write into the blog – and advised these people that they should form some kind of “association of Camella Home victims” or something – and that they should approach the TV stations – the tripple x and “Inbestigator”, etc – – that they should pool their resources and try to get a lawyer to help them, etc….

    But one of the sad things that I came to realize (after my advice was pretty much ignored) was that THIS is exactly why Camella can get away with this stuff. Because they are dealing with poor Filipinos who will cry and moan all night long – – but will NOT go to the people who can actually DO something about it.

    I lived in Asia for more than 20 years – – and generally, this is the sad truth. I saw it among Filipino OFW’s in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and in other places – FILIPINOS OFTEN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OTHER FILIPINOS – – KNOWING THAT THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT….

    Yes, there are exceptions, but they are so very few. Camelia Homes – in these cases – is working on “low income” property. The profit margin is very very low – – and no matter WHAT kind of guarantee they may offer – the sad fact is that if they made good on their guarantee, it would put them in the red – – losing money. So they choose not to.

    At least that is what it seems to me. you can reach me at 1-714 – 881 – 4470 ….

  235. Meron din po ako house sa camella heights pangasinan. Nung nagmamarket sila lagi nila sinasabibi na meron bridge from phase 1 to phase 3… pero 7 years na po until now walang bridge at wla na yata sila plano. Pangakong napako.

Isa pang problema ay mabaho ang simoy ng hangin dahil sa piggery. Sa ngayon isa kami sa sinisisi ng mga kaibigan namin dahil nakabili din sila ng lote na.pinaghirapan din nila pero wala.ng.plano ang camella para sa pangakong tulay.

    MGA NAKAWAN SA ARELLANO ST. LESSANDRA HTS. DAANGHARI MOLINO IV- DI NAMAN NI-RESOLVE NG MGA TAGA-”GLOBAL LANDS MANAGEMENT” PERO PAG SA CINGILAN NG HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION FEE DYAN KAYO MAGALING!!!!!! MS. MADELAINE ATTENTION….

  237. Bago sila mangako ng tulong sa milyong pinoy unahin muna nila yong mga pangako nila sa mga HOA ng camella. Paano mo gagawin ang pangako sa milyon na pinoy kung pangako sa mga nabentahan nila ng lote at di nila matupad. Wag padadala sa mga pangako na napapako.

  238. Magaling.lang sila mangako pag nagbebenta sila ng lote. Bukod sa malayo ang iniikutan namin at delikado pa lalo na sa gabi. Kawawang juan dela cruz.. kaisa-isang investment nya pagiging OFW ngayon ay di na tinitirahan. Pati kaibigan at kamag-anak na bumili at naniwala sa pangakong tulay ngayon ay sinisisi sa amin. Hinahanap ang tulay… pangakong napako.

  239. Global land and villar…. last nonth may binaril at namatay na naman sa dinadaanan ng mga home owners sa camella heights, sta. Barbara, pangasinan… wag nyo na hintayin na may masama mangyari sa mga nabentahan nyo ng lote sa camella heights. Paano maniniwala ang milyon na tao pinangangakuan ninyo kung pangako ninyo sa naniwala at pinagkakitaan ninyo ay di natupad. Gising mga pinoy at kapwa namin OFW.

  240. ms gray gleason
    nakakalungkot ngang isipin na walng nagsisimulang gumawa ng action sa tuloy-tuloy ng panloloko ng CAMELLA, vista land, crown ASIA lahat yan pag-aari ni villar…. katulad ngayon may new site silang gagawing subd. actually meron cerritos terraces….

  241. hi kakakuha ko lang ng unit sa camella tagum sa davao.. matatapos na ung dp ko.. after reading ur comments parang nakakapanlambot at nttkot ako bka pag ntpos na ung dp ko ay maranasan ko din yung mga problem nyo sa unit… sana nman ok ung sa davao…

  242. bakit d2 tayo nagrereklamo, dapat lahat ng may reklamo magsamasama at tayo ay gumawa ng liham sa hlurb o kay vice president kc siya ng may otoridad sa hlurb ngayon. o kaya maganonsiyo ng isang lugar para lahat ng may reklamo laban sa developer na pagaari ng villar clan

  243. walanghiya talaga yang camella..mga mukhang pera..puro pagnanakaw sa mga tao ang alam.. cguro miss macryll mabibilang ka sa daliri sa hindi nagrereklamo sa camella..kaya sila lumaki ng ganyan kasi nga nasa posisyon ang may ari.. puro sub standard ang mga materyales..sana lang sa mahal ng bahay at lupa nila eh provide nila ang best service sa homeowners..dapat evaluate nila ang mga bahay na ginagawa nila..dapat quality check nila ang bahay bago nila turn over sa mayari.. PURO PAGNANAKAW LANG ANG ALAM NG CAMELLA PARANG ANG AMO NILA…KAYA DAPAT HUWAG MANALO SA PAGKA PRESIDENTE..MAGNANAKAW LANG SA PINAS AT TAONG BAYAN YAN..

  244. definitely we will not vote cynthia Villar – grabe commercial niya sa “FOUNDATION” niya pana’y labas sa TV magkanu cost nun, instead itulong nalang sa mga housing buss. nila dun pa nga lang hindi na nila maayos what more pa sa pag pasok niya sa politics!!!! sabagay mayaman na sila so, POWERS nalng kulang para madaling magkarun kagag ng title at angkinin nila kagad ang properties……

  246. rach,

    Count me in, my family recently move in in Camella “Provence” in Malolos Bulacan last May 2011, but I experience the same, low cost and sub standard materials was used for my dream house. This dream house now turn into nightmare! Due to the following issues:

    1. Water Leak in the roof during rainy days
    2. Leak in water pipes.
    3. Mess in Electrical cables

    One more thing I send then official complaint to their GM in Bulacan but they didn’t even bother to reply…..

    Only in Camella Homes!!!!!!

    Regards,

    lalaine

    • Grabe tlga, Sana bumukol s pwet ng nangongolekta nyan, hi wag mo n pang aralin makukuha s camella baliuag, Kung ayaw mo mamulubi, at may corruption dito, gusto mo benta ko n LNG ung sa akin

  247. sa wakas after more than 2 years my tubig na sa camella campetic palo leyte. next unsolved problem: drainage system – walang labasan ng tubig, bumabaha ang kalsada pag umuulan (ambaho pa)..

  248. Matanong ko lang po… di ba ipinagmamalaki ni Cynthia villar na nakapagbigay siya ng maraming trabaho at plataorma niya eh yung magbibigay pa ng marami pang trabaho? Eh bakit sa Lessandra heights Daang Hari pinagbabawal ang pagkaroon ng munting tindahan? Hindi ba entrepreneurship ang isa sa mga makakatulong sa pagkaroon ng pangkabuhayan at trabaho? Hindi naman exclusibong high-end subdivision ang Lessandra di po ba? Substandard ang mga bahay, nagbibiyak-biyak na nga ang mga semento eh. Pero si madelin Quolang-quolang mas iniintindi pa ang mga nagtitindahan kesa sa pagsasaayos ng mga bahay. Isa pa, paglalakarin nyo po ba ng halos isang kilometro ang isang taong gustong bumili ng isang stick ng yosi o kaya isang bote ng softdrinks? Anlayu kaya ng (in)convenience store lalo na kung sa dulo ka pa ng Lessandra nakatira.

    Dapat ang intindihan ni Quolang eh yung mga bastos na trabahador na naninipol sa mga babaeng residente at yung mga gwardiyang nakikipaglandian sa mga katulong ng mga homeowners kahit oras ng trabaho.

    Anlabo naman!

  249. to all camella bacolod homeowners, problema pa rin ba ang tubig dyan? di pa rin pwede magdirect sa BACIWA? kelangan pa rin ba sa centralized water system ng camella? lot owner po ako, nag 2×2 isip kung magpa contruct pa ako ng bahay dyan. ano pa kaya mga problema dyan?

    • pareng H magkano bili mo total sa lupa mo? ilang sq.m? kasi lot din lng sakin pero dko muna patatayuan ng house kc dami pa reklamo at problem ng mga home owners hintayin ko muna ma resolve mga problema nila bago ako patayo ng house.

      • pareng H magkano bili mo total ng lot mo. kc lot din lng sakin…saka ko na patatayuan ng house pag wala na problem sa homeowners kc dami problema eh.

      • can’t say. pero prime lot sya maganda location sa subd. malapit sa entrance at kita sa labas if ever magpatayo ng house. ano pa ibang problema?

  250. need contractor ? our email add aragon_acts@yahoo.com. marami nmang pinag bibili na lupa outside sa camella, then develop nyo na lang yung area and open pa sa bussiness…. if need help email us, kami maghanap ng lupa na complete papers sabihin nyo lang kung saang location nyo gusto(province or manila) .

  251. Hi, sayang at di ko kagad nakita ang mga blogs na ito before we purchased the house. naloko kami ng agent saying na single attached ang bahay (preselling kasi) , but when it was already constructed nakadikit pala siya. Dorina uphill ang binili namin. Kaso nakapirma na kami pati almost fully paid na sa down payment kaya di kami makalama. And the agent as well wala ng pakielam sa amin after, nung nakausap namin pinapasa kami sa admin para kami na ang magfile ng compalint.

    Buti na lang, nakamovein kami before magone year ang turn over ang dai problema talga sa loob. I have already filed the complaint to their customer care.

    LIKE ko yung COmment reality bites

    • yes, she gave a lot of jobs with camella, she teach her employee how to scam people and lei to them of their money

  253. yes i agree i paid more than fifty percent and my house is not yet constructed last year kahit sabihin natin na pre selling pa xa pero sa contract nakalagay 50 percent paid sisimulan na. sinungaling ang camella. malapit na matapos house na ginawa nila this year. more than 2 years na ko nagbabayad at matatapos n rin. pina subcon nakita ko yung tubo na ginamit sa sink plastic lang samantalang sa model house stainless. manloloko ang camella kasama na ang subcontractor at pag di ka nakabayad sa oras me tubo sila 4 percent bakit sila pag na delay ndi ko makaltasan.

  254. ako din may problema din sa camella, ilang beses na akong ninakawan pro stl walang action ang admin, d ba nakasaad sa ads nla na 24hrs guarded? taz nung nagpa gawa ako ng pader para for safety purposes stl nanghingi pa ng cashbond at sa cashbond na yun may ikakaltas pa para dw for processing fee etc, ang hirap kc bahay mu na nga pnagkakakitaan ka pa ng camella kc bawat galaw mo klangan may bayad pa, nagbabayad ka na nga for security and maintenance pro palpak

  255. hay naku kahit anong kakatalak ko stl d naman nag a action ang camella bacolod, hi blood ang aabutin mo, huli ko na kcng nabasa tong mga commnts na to sna d na ako kumuha, ang yabang pa ng ibang engr

    • hi girlie,maayos nman ba ang pagkagawa ng bahay mo?kakabayad ko lng ng reservation fee sa camella homes bohol pero nag-aalangan na tuloy akong ituloy dahil sa mga negative comments dito.sa oct pa dw ang umpisa ng construction ng mga units dahil model houses pa ang ginagawa nila at kalsada.

      • Kung iyan lang ang paraan para magkabahay kayo ay go ahead but if you have time and resources to build your own in another subdivision that doesn’t belong to Camella or Vistaland ay iyon ang bilhin ninyo. Mahirap kausap ang mga kapwa natin Plilipino parang mga napakarunong pero walang common sense! Hindi ko nilalahat pero kulang tayo ng pagka smart ability at may katigasan ng ulo…

  256. madelaine quolang-quolang talagang wala ka ng magawang matino sa LEssandra HTS. daang hari, pag ako nainis SNIPER lang katapat mo. bumisita ka pa sa baha-bahay. may pamilya ka ba?

  257. Hi anyone po na makapagbigay ng updates sa camella palo leyte.., Kumusta po yung progress nung development nila for amenities at yung quality ng construction ng bahay?

  258. from all the research i have been doing, Camella became big because of all the scams they been doing…Camella in Candon ilocos sur, the people that work there are rude, after they got our money, i can’t seem to find any of them and when i do, mga mukhang pera…(GOLD DIGGER IN ENGLISH). MONEY HUNGER BITCHES. they wanna be american life style but they cant even do the job, how embarrassing the way they treat people who actually paid for there food and put roof over their head. ashamed Filipino. if you ever remember the name AGNES GARCIA-AGENT. BAD BAD PERSON. lair and she is no 1 money hunger.

  259. nag-aalangan tuloy ako ituloy ang pagbili ko ng unit sa camella homes bohol dahil sa mga coemnts dito.Balak pa naman sana namin bayaran ng buo kasi 10 percent daw ang discount.sabi nila 6-8months dw ang construction bago maturnover pero pwde pa mangyari na mas matagal pa sa 8months kung lagi dw masama ang panahon.kaya humingi ako ng kasulatan sa kanila na gusto makasiguro na maturnover nila ang bahay not later than 8months ,baka kasi abutin ng 1 year pero wala pa akong natanggal na reply. sayang din naman kung di ko rin ituloy dahil di ko na mababawi ang 20k na reservation fee.ang gaganda kasi ng model houses nakapost ,may foto pa na ang gaganda camella homes daw yun sa ibang lugar.sana maging maayos naman ang camella homes bohol.ang reklamo ko lang sa ngayon na ang agent ko sa camella homes ay sinungaling ,mali mali ang binigay mga info,nakakadismaya talaga.kaya kung nagbabalak ka kumuha ng unit sa camella homes bohol ,sa office mismo mag inquire wag masyado magpapaniwala sa mga agents,di ko lang alam kung lahat ba ng agent tulad ng agent ko,pero para sigurado sa office mismo mag inquire.gudluck nlng sa min kumuha ng unit sa camella homes bohol!

  260. The best way is to monitor the house construction. Pwde niyo naman ipahinto yung construction if hindi kayo satisfied sa materials and kausapin ang office. Wag sana ilahat ng mga ahente ng Camella. Di na namin control yang situation na yan. I have clients na satisfied naman sa service namin because my client and I monitored it from scratch up to the house is completed. Smooth ang transaction namin. Kung natatakot padin kayo e best advice I can to you is have your own contractor. Pwede naman po yun e. You can just buy a lot. Cons lang is the house designs must be similar to what we’re offering. Tsaka sa matter nung turnover? If you bought it on a pre selling stage palng nung subdivision, aantayin pa po natin madevelop yung land bago matayuan ng bahay. Ang tawag po dun is land development stage.

    • Very helpful yang comment mo ma’am. Sorry if ganyang agent nakatagpo mo. HIndi lahat ganyan. I never had problems with my clients kasi hindi ako “SINUNGALING” like your agent. Wag naman lahatin. Tsaka sa lahat ng naninira sa Camella, kung ayaw niyo bumili, wag. It’s your decision padin. Wag na sana manira.

      • Tama iyong huwag maninira kung ayaw ninyong bumili pero kung legitimate clients complaint against Camella ay hindi paninira iyon. Let no one stop you from voicing out your opinion!

        We know that Camella people are not that responsive when it comes to clients’ concerns pero it doesn’t mean we will not be professional dealing with them.

        If you don’t want to be controlled by this Camella people, don’t buy dahil they are going to control you. Kahit maliit na gawain para sa sarili mong bahay ay may bond and it’s not fully refundable. You are not done paying them as long as you live there.

  261. nagtataka ako sa ibang coments dito kasi may nagreklamo na naloko sila ng agent nila dahil sa agent sa agent nag abot ng bayad.klaro naman nakasulat sa reservation agreement ng camella na sa cashier lang mismo magbayad at di kahit kanino,nakasulat pa nga don na di sagot ng camella kung ano man ang pangako ng agent sa client na walang pirma ang camella officer or president .siguro kaya nabiktma ibang kababayan natin kasi di binasa ang agreement contract?sa karanasan ko sa camella bohol,mabait naman ang nakausap ko ,naibigay naman agad ang hiningi kung mga documents at satisfy ako sa serbisyo nila.sana ipagpatuloy nila ang kanilang magandang serbisyo sa kanilang mga clients at sana maayos ang maging contractor at yan ang pinakaimportante para sa akin na maayos ang pagkatayo ng bahay ko.

    • lucky you, our agent, i cant find sinse she got my reservation, communion and full down payment. she promise me a corner lot but i didn’t get it. she now blaming my sister like its my sister’s job to tell me important information like that. the marketing manager, she is rude too. i emailed her many times to send me all the documents, never once i receive one from her. they fail to tell me about the fact that i need to open a bank at RCBC, they fail to disclose important papers that i may need to process and they fail to tell me that i must give them a 6 months worth of advance payment check. and no many more.. it seem to me that every time i blink, i find something else wrong with them. they took my money and they didn’t even know that i was a dual citizen, they assume that i was an american citizen after i just gave them a copy of my business BIR tax #.

      The Camella Agents need to figure out how to approach their clients, they need to give them there full attention not only while waiting for the commission but until the house is finish. they disrespect my sister who turn away 4 people that were gonna buy a property from them.

      • Good day ma’am! The best agents pagdating sa mga ganyang matter kahit sa gipitan is Asiaplus agents, Why? They are Vista Land’s or MB Villar’s marketing arm. They are the legitimate agents of Vista Land’s projects all over the Philippines. Some agents are only accredited by Vista Land or Camella, so the proper training doesn’t apply to them. Nasasabi ko to kasi I encountered other agents from different brokerage firm and I agree with you na may ilan ilan nga na nawawala talaga. I’m not pertaining to all agents by the way. My suggestion is just try to go straight to the office if hindi po kayo comfortable sa agent niyo. Tsaka yung sa bank po, it’s your decision kung saan, pero as far as I know, we are accredited by BDO, RCBC, Security Bank and I think BPI also.

      • Regarding Camella Candon, Camella Corporate NEED to give your employee, Agent or marketing Director better way to EDUCATE them. they need to listen to their clients more than just trying to get their commissions. remember that your clients are the one who will give you business. CUSTOMER SERVICE is the most important thing. without your best customer service, you dont have a good remarks from most people.

        i have had my share from Camela employees but in the end of the road, it is the Camella Corporate who need to ensure that their employee gets the rigt information to give their clients. in my experience, Filipino people like to say the word “YES MA’M or YES SIR.” but they hell don’t know what the heck you mean…

      • Filipino people like to say the word “YES MA’M or YES SIR” is a sign of respect but executing what they mean is still how these Camella employees were trained by this company or how they will treat us. Their customer service is not great and too much controlling.

      • I definately will NOT say YES or NO if I don’t understand what the clients is telling me. I would simply ask what does the clients really wanting to know not pretend that I know or assume. Knowledge of the situation is very important in Real estate. I have work in a large financial mortgage company in the states and I definately know what to ask and why to look for but when Camella employee does not have the knowledge if their job then it’s the clients lint no matter what. Trying to defend the mistakes if Camella is the instead of fixing the situation is the same as hiding the problem. Don’t Contridict yourself, your making yourself look like fool. No matter how you look at it. Camella corporation or the employees will look bad weather 1 person dd it or 3 doesn’t change the fact that a lot of problems need to be given a large amount if time to solve it.

      • MM ,sa office mismo ako nakipagtok dahil ang agent ko ay mali mali din ang sinabi. kaya pag may tanong ako sa mismong office ako tumawag para tama ang makuha kong sagot at mabait naman ang nakausap ko sa office .siguro di naman lahat ng agent pero syempre gusto rin natin makasiguro kasi tayo ang magbabayad ng millions kaya dapat lang makasiguro tayo.

      • @ Maria, I am glad that you found someone to talk to at the office, but unfortunately for me, even the office would not even respond to most of my question. they told my sister and I quate ” tanong kayo ng tanong, mga client mga namin na mayayaman din ay hindi sila nag tatanong ng marama” even the marketing manager or director that i talk to was very rude as well. RONA FROM CAMELLA CANDON. i just pray and hope that no one will go through what i went through. for the past few days, i was at eased because, i was able to speak to the contracting engineer in charge and he was able to answer my question that the office or employee of camella cant answer for themselves.

        it is just ridiculousness how they make you think you dont know whats your talking about but what they dont know is this is our 4th house and i have work in the Real Estate.

        I just think that when Camella open a new location, they need to so a lot of training and take charge of their clients. someone has to be responsible to fix things that are being over look. it took me a month to find the corporate number, not one of them are willing to give me any phone number. it seem like they dont even want you to know those information.

        THIS COMPANY IS NO UN-ORGANIZE

        @ Martin, regarding bank financing, on my behalf I have no problem with that part, they have seen my bank account and when they did, the agent eyes were about to pop out which she reminds me of a dog that was drooling all over. :-) sorry, that’s was the only thing i am remembering about her. :-)
        anyways, you are one of a few that were taking care the right way… thats great, at least there is a hope for some of them and they know how to care for the job that put put on their table and roof over their head.

  262. Maganda ang experience ko sa Camella Cabanatuan. They started my house last Dec18, 2012. Ang turnOver ay sa June 2013. Wala naman ako naging problem sa bank financing. Mabilis ang release ng Camella ng mga requirements for bank fiancing. Sila mismo ang nagdadala sa bank ko ng mga documents. Mabait ang contractor ko. Mabait ang agent ko.

    • Hello kuya pwede po kita makausap,,hingi lang payo ,,kasi tapos n one year downpayment ko s camella wala p updates hanggang ngayun,,, thanks

  263. hay naku parang gusto kong mag quit ksi sobrang mahal at ang liit pa ng space mukhang pera pa un agent ko. hinahabol habol pa ako.pano po un ayaw ko na ituloy kc sobrang mahal po tlaga at gusto q mg ipon nalang ako.ang hindi ko nalng napipirmahan un sa notary..un iba na pirmahan ko na po.ano po ba ang mangyayari sa akin total last 2 days lng nman ang nkalipas

    • wag mo na ituloy ako din nanghinayang sobrang liit ng space kaya bago ka pa magsisi wag mo na ituloy mababa pa ang kaledad ng mga materyales na ginagamit nila in short tinitipid nila pro pagdating s bayaran napakastrikto!nasabi ko lng to base on my experience…

      • For Pandahouse: if i were you, i will save some money and buy a small land and build your house when your ready, i also made a mistake… our house we paid almost 5 million and we still have to do some renovation like: closets. what they show on their model home is not what you gonna get…
        it is wiser to save your money and find someone to do it.. it is much cheaper that way. it will take 4 to 6 months to build a house there, it depends if its a rainy season or not but it is also better if your’re there to see it while they are building your house.

        in my experience with camella…THEY SUCKS THE LIVING OUT OF YOU!!!

        Good luck, WISHING YOU THE BEST.

      • Misrepresentation ang agent niyo. Model houses are just simply an example kung pano niyo pwede ayusin ang bahay na bibilhin niyo. PLain cement and painted white walls lang ang deliverable ng Camella. Unless ang binili niyo e yung 6M to 7M mahigit. Kung bibili kayo ng bahay sa Camella, dmrecho kayo sa head office kung ayaw niyo ng misrepresentation ng agent. Di yung reklamo ng reklamo.

      • We are not just talking about the model houses but if you look at the drawing plans, they have cabinets and closets in all the rooms. This is the only house that you are paying millions without any kitchen cabinets and closets. What kind of a house developer is Camella? Just to take big profit?

      • Cabinets are not included po. kaya nga I said “MISREPRESENTATION” siya nung agent. Uulitin ko. Plain white cement lang siya. Period. Wag umasa sa 5m niyo na bhay. OO, mkakagawa kayo ng mgandang bahay sa 5M niyo sa sarili nyong lupa. Question ko lang, may pool ba? May 24 Hrs security with roving guards ba? Take note po. Ang binibili niyo sa CAMELLA is ung features, hndi yung bahay. Kaya common sense. In 5M? Mkakagawa kayo ng POOL? 24 HRS security wth roving grounds? PLayground for the kids? Basketball court? Tennis court? Wow ah. 5M kaxa lahat yan? Anyways. Point ko lng yan, depende lang sa inyo yan. Tska napansin ko puro Bicol, davao projects lng siya, I dare you. Punta kayo Batangas are, punthan niyo ang plantacion meridienne sa LIPA. 10 yrs na siya nakaturnover pero pag nakita mo, alaga padin siya. Depende lng sa location. Request lang namin sana is wag lahatin. OO yung ibang agent mukhang pera. pero hnd lahat.

      • To Spoiler,

        Those amenities and features you are talking about are still to be paid while living inside the subidivison. It’s not included for the price of the house and that’s why the more amenities they the more monthly extra payments. The roving guards are paid by them but the HOA will be paying that.

        Don’t get confused with the amenities with the house itself!

      • To Spoiler,

        That pool and amenities are expended for the whole community not to individual owner. Your basis are wrongs and stop depending Camella and ignore all the problems of these OFW! Customers should be treated right!

      • (Basis are “WRONGS”) (stop “DEPENDING”)? Aral aral muna ng tamang grammar bago sumagot :-) Keep on hating everyone. In the end, may nadala ba kayo sa husgado? May ginagawa ba kayo to get things right on your side? If you believe na tama kayo and ninanakawan kayo or niloloko, make a move. E sa tagal na ng topic na to wala pang naririnig na demanda laban sa Camella. Anyways, di ko naman dinedefend ang Camella because of Villar. Dinidefend ko ang mga nagttrabahong matitinong ahente sknila na wala nmng gngwang masama. Yun lang naman, Wag kayo magalit sa mga ahenteng di naman kasama sa prblema niyo. Kung talagang matalino kayo e di sana nagisip kayo mabuti or tiningnan lahat ng bagay bago kumuha sa Camella. Lahat tayo nagttrabaho lang, kung ayaw niyo masayang ang pera niyo, think twice. Isipin lahat. Tanungin lahat ng procedures. Wag sana daanin sa init ng ulo at ilabas sa mga blogs ang nararamdaman niyo. Tawag sa ganyan mga “KEYBOARD WARRIORS” o sa harap ng computer lang matapang. Kung talagang tingin niyo nga e naloko kayo, make your move personally. Diba? Ipaglaban niyo yung dapat at yung sa tingin niyong tama. Magwelga kayo sa harap ng office nila if you want. Ganyan lang naman. Sorry kung naooffend ko yung mga ibang andito pero naooffend din ako as an agent of Camella. Di ho lahat ng ahente masama. And isa pa po pala, nagtataka lang ako. Ang daming murang developers na iba jan, bt hindi kayo dun bumili? Dba?

    • You were using Taglish and good gramamr! Sorry for my wrong grammar but anyway you are not making sense comparing other locations that do not have problem with those people that have issues.

      If you aren’t doing anything wrong and why can’t you shut your mouth up? Let us express our freedom of speech and let other people know all the issues so that they can think carefully whether they still want to deal with Camella or not.

      I am correcting your basis about the pools, roving guards, etc. are supposed to be included in the amenities and features because it’s included when they figured out in each unit costs not by by Camella. None of these are coming free from Camella. The buyers are all paying for it!!! Don’t belittle those OFW’s because you don’t know how hard they earned for their money so can have their dream houses and support their love ones! Besides 90% OFW’s probably are their buyers though my figure can be wrong!

      • OFW’s mga kapatid ko. Kaya diko sila minamaliit. Sakin lang, wag kayo sa keyboard matapang. Puro satsat di nman kayo mkpaghabla. :-)

  264. at saka d pa nman aq ngsimula mgdownpayment bale reservation lng un nabayaran ko.pero npirmahan ko na un ibang agreement ang hindi lng un sa notario.please help me

    • Hangga’t di pa nauumpisahan ang bahay mo ay you have the right to cancel it! Get out while you can and don’t worry on your reservation!

  265. isa rin akong homeowner under toscana davao city at isa lng masasabi ko nkakapanghinayang bat pa ako kumuha ng unit s camella as in super hinayang ako ang laki ng nagagastos ko s bahay namin wla pang 4 yrs bahay namin butas na ang wall “ina-anay” pa at ang toilet my ged sira ang flush at ang gripo nagleak ang tubo s ilalim ng lupa ang laki ng naging bill ko at binayad s pagpaayos idagdag pa ang mga nagcrack na semento ,mga pintuan na sira agad pati door knob di pa pinatawad as in mababang kaledad ng materyales talaga ang ginamit kung alam ko lng sana na ganito kababa ag kaledad ng mga bahay nila di na ako kumuha pro andyan na eh ang laki pa nmn ng sakripisyo namin makabayad lng halos kung kani kanino kami nangutang pra lng may pambayad halos lahat ng parte ng bahay may sira napakadelikado sa lindol…ang liit ng bahay nmin pro milyon ang halaga naisip namin ok na lng din kc good quality naman mga materyales pro hindi pala in the scale of 10 zero ang ibibigay ko promise! ang galing maningil pro kung may reklamo ka s bahay wlang action!! at ngayon paid na namin ang bahay ang tagal pa ibigay ng titulo from 6 to 8 months dw hanep naman to,,,sa totoo lng wala pa akong narinig na positive feedback ng mga homeowners s subdivision namin puro reklamo lahat sana naman maging sensitive naman ang namamahala ng camella kawawa naman kasi mga homeowners hindi madaling kumita ng pera para lang may pambayad s inyo…

  266. im FREEEEE! nabenta ko rin lot ko sa camella. basta i’ll never fall for another camella/villar trap ever again. what a nightmare. whew!

      • binenta ko may titulo na at hindi gago ang bumili. alam nya pinapasok nya dahil business nya yun. tanggap ko na sa sarili ko na hindi para sa katulad ko na middle class ang camella. sya me mga tao na professional na sisiguradong di sya matotonto.

      • Ayos lang bumili sa kanila basta’t willing kang magpa-control sa HOA bylaws which they established in their favor. That HOA ay para patuloy silang kumita ng pera out of everyone in that community.

  267. hello isa po akong taga davao nakabili po ako sa camella davao…ang problema ko ay full payment na yung bhay noong 2011.nagpromise cla na makuha kona yung title after 8 months noong binalikan ko sabi nila may balanse padaw ako na 400 thou.grabee nakaka highblood

    • naka-stress talaga yang Customer Care (kuno) ng Camella Davao. ito yung mga issues na na-encounter ko.

      Agent presented a model house na months lng tinirahan ng buyer tapos di na nakayanan magbayad kaya naibalik sa Camella. 20% ng bahay ay kailangan i-repair at repaint. Sabi ng agent aayos daw ang mga sira at i-repaint once makapag reserve na (isang malaking kasinungalingan, wag maniwala sa agent agad kasi habol nila ay instant commission).
      1) sinabi na mabilis lng ang turn over 1 month lng daw once ma-fully paid na yung downpayment at marelease yung bank loan… yun pala 3 months ang processing ng bank loan… (sana nag condo na lng kami at makalipat agad).
      2) nung narelease na ang loan, ang tagal kumilos ng staff para ma-turnover… kailangan mo pa sila i-remind everyday tapos tinatago nila ang manager nila na sa Mr. Marlon..
      3) ayaw nila asikasuhin ang pagpareconnect ng tubig at ang kuryente lng daw asikasuhin nila… electrical inspection fee na over magcharging 1,500 ito yung (fixer ang dating)… WAG KAYONG MAGBAYAD NG 1,500 kasi 200 lang magagastos nyo kung kayo na mgprocess ng electrical permit sa Building Officials near City hall. 2 days lng at makukuha mo na ang permit.
      Instead makakatulong sana ang customer care sila pa itong nagrerecommend ng electrian na mahal ang singil.
      4) 3 times na sila nagpromise ng turnover June 28 tapos July 2 tapos July 15… pero until now wala parin tawag…bwisit talaga.

      So ito ang payo ko para di ma-stress… wag bumili sa Camella kasi worst ang customer service nila.

      • tama ka ang galing ng service ng Camella Davao…all of them are sweet talking, starting from the manager Engr.(kuno) Anajaw….swerte na kung ma accomplish mo within one year ang reklamo mo..lalo na pag titulo na ang hanap mo swerte na kung makuha mo in 2 years time from full payment….workmanship quality ng bahay, ewan kung saan school nag engineer si engr. anajaw

  268. i bought a land in camella.. fully paid nko for about 1yr and 6 mos. ..until nolw wala pa ko title ng land, everytime na tatawag ako sa camella.. lge yun ang pa lusot nila, nag iba daw ng lumalakad ng title, until i found out na di pala alam ng manager nila ang ganon, ano kaya magandang gawin? nakakainis lang kasi, pinagpaguran ko yung mabayaran tapos titulo lang wala pa, certificate of full payment palang

  269. in my experience so far is that Camella misrepresent themselves how they sell the houses… they have to have a good representation and at this point no one knows exactly how to sell the house…

    the model homes they’re trying to show you IS NOT what the house looks like… its a PLAIN 4 WALLS PAINTED.

    my agent: AGNES GARCIA FROM CANDON CAMELLA, present me the model house. and i see is what i get put “exclude the furniture and light fixture”…she said.. RONA who is the Marketing in charge had said the same thing “what you see is what you get” exclude the furniture and light fixture…

    the engineer who is working on my house right now even told me that they also did it to him when he bought his house and it was too late for him to get out…

    my suggestion to any of you who are trying to buy a house is that “search and understand what your getting……before making an offer…

    they will tell you that the price is gonna go up but if you are smart enough…they say that just to sucker you up on paying the fee in advance and they will tell you anything…

    unfortunately, i had to ask my sister not to become an agent with camella because now i know how they work you…

    just also to let you know..i do real estate as well here in america….with the economy the way it is….its not gonna get better anytime soon…so by saying that…they are hurting to sell anything…make an offer….

    i have the email saying its gonna go up by this much…but it never did…they sucker me up on giving them the full down payment. don’t believe its gonna go up in a price or they gonna give you discount…everything is discount or bargain in the Philippines…unfortunately :-)

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    • I’m with you and can’t believe the cabinets are not included. I’m surprise that toilets and sinks are included in the deal in addition to the walls. That makes their profit lesser.

      A lot of innocents people who wants to have their 1st home are falling in their sales pitch especially the OFWs that don’t know anything how bad is this company and thinking they can offer you the best deal in the market. OFWs don’t know yet the reputation of this company that only care about is their profits.

      Beeware unless you don’t care giving away your hard earned money. You can get a lot more building yourself or hiring a contractor of your own. Just beware and be smart in buying your dream house.

      • it has been a while since i posted anything at this site but i have been here monitoring my house and unfortunately, its SHIT. nothing is being done. and anyways, i did gave my full down payment and paid my monthly amortization even the bank had paid them in full. i have spoken to some engr. from what they told me, camella has been using part of the money towards other projects that they have not finish and one other thing that they told me is that sometimes the engr even paid for some of the materials because camella dosn’t give the money out front. it has been 1 year and 2 months and still shit.

        one more thing, i suggest that you do NOT make any changes or give the Engr. any money to add anything into the house. our engr. basically use our money and now he is not paying us back. i even had someone check his bank records and it isn’t good. it isn’t camella who buys the material, its the engr. jod to get the material and what they do is that camella provides the money and the engr. buys the materials that isn’t very good but not all engr. does it. i say this because there are some issue between 2 of the engr. that was working on my house. it is a cut throat for them.

        my house still not finish……it has been very stressful for us here. and please please please, if you do get camella, ask someone a their location office for the engr first. ask them question. and do not ask the agents, they fucking don’t know shit when it come to building a house. they are train to get a clients not how the house built. also go directly to the office instead.

        i am not here to make camella bad, i am only relating my experience, i’, sure not everyone has the same problem.

        i have also met 4 people who have the same problem with me here.

        and if you are wanting the bank to finance your house, don’t believe them when they say, they only go for one bank. you can chose the bank you want to finance your house.

        and one more thing, every question you ask, make sure its being answer through email so then you have something to fall back on. if you don’t have nothing to stand back on, you have no arguments. proof is the best key on anything. i have been leaving in the philippines for the past 6 months, and i can assure you for the outsiders, its better for you to be very careful. money here is not a joke. i have encounter family killing each other for a small land.

        it is very sad to see and hear whats going on here but its true. be wise on every decision you make and for those OFW. i will keep that money in a bank and wait till you come home to build your house.

        god bless and good luck to you all.

  271. Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up! Other then that, excellent blog!

  272. Camella Taguig – Pacific Residence Phase 2. Moved in 4 yrs ago, fully paid last year.. till now di pa available title. haayz

    • @ Pac Res 2, just for your information, from what i was told is even though you paid your full amount to camella it doesn’t mean anything to them. here is something that you may want to know, when you paid camella, they don’t necessarily paid the bank fully, so until Camella paid the bank in full, the bank will not release the title until then.. not everything you paid to camella was sent to the bank, they use that money to compensate other project such as for example: if maria bought a house and she paid 1 mil in advance, her money goes to another late project that wasn’t finish and then when someone else comes along and buy a house and lot, her down payment goes to you to finish your house….it has always been that way…i wish i could send you a copy of financial record that was sent to me from the inside who now don’t work for the company due to some fraud that she found. again, all you can do is wait…

      sorry that you’re going through that but we all did…

      sad but its a very bad situation…

      • @ninang,

        correct me if im wrong…based on my limited knowledge, if a loan is under a financing institutions (like bank) you are paying your amortization directly to the bank…there is no way that the developer will have a hold on any amount that the client is paying directly to the bank…you can check bank policies regarding this matter…

    • Baka ma’am nasa mother title pa xa. Pag ganyang development po is one title lang siya. Siguro under individualization pa siya, un kasi po yung matagal. Palakasan pa yan sa municipality para mapabilis ang process.

      • Sir Lipa, actually po, parang yun nga dinadahilan nila na. May mother title, di pa nahahati and may pending action sa government which they control. But I don’t think it’s a valid excuse, more than 4 yrs na kami naka move in so it’s either may problem talaga technically sa lupa that they need to be “malakas” sa municipality or the guys at camella are not doing anything about it.

        I’m actually thinking of filing a legal claim, but I’m worried that it might not be worth the effort. It will need money and of course time. If I only get the title for that effort then lugi ako since to begin with I should be getting that without any additional effort. What do you guys think?

        I really feel uncomfortable that I still do not have the title of our house given our situation. I cannot sell, use as collateral, spend money to improve etc.

  273. hi
    problem ko is about sa piggery dito lapit sa camella tierra nevada langaw marami,iiwan na sana namin anh house, in house financing kami..ilang buwan po ba bago paalisin ng camella pag tinigil na namin ang pagbabayad.

  275. Sir anu kaya po pwede ko gawin,may unit po kami nakuha sa Camella Lipa, kaso ngdecide na po kame na hindi na ituloy. kakaapproved lang po neto ung bank financing sa RCBC. nkpgbayad na po kame ng 11 months sa downpayment sa Camella.

Grabe nman po bilang OFW, dugot pawis ang ppuhunan para makita laang yung pera lalo na at sa Mddle East. hay buhay…grabe nman ang batas pabor sa negosyante.

    • Ganun po talaga sir, kahit po sa ibang developers. Pero as far as I’m concerned, may makukuha pa kayo pero hindi naman po buo.

    • Hi un LNG masaklap, kumita LNG ang camella, wla n nga Kau makukuha Kasi may contract yan, dapat I tuloy nyo n LNG Kasi approve n pla Kau s rcbc

  276. I want to inform you about my frustrations with Camella Homes. I entered into a sales contract with Camella Montego/Antipolo & purchased a Rina model in cash November last year (2012). I was promised that the house construction will be done in June 2013 and that will be turned-over in 4-6months. Since I am abroad, my sister (whom I had given the SPA) for several times she has met with people in Camella and numerous call inquiries but was given false promises and commitment dates as to the start of construction. To our disappointment, its almost August 2013 but nothing was done nor any preparations yet regarding the construction. How can I refer Camella Homes to other OFW and interested buyers/friends here abroad if that is the scenario?

      • hi wondermom! i have no update yet as to when is the turnover, super late na kasi naumpisahan. block 1 ako dun sa montego. will be in the phils this MAYO, hopefully matapos na.

    • We moved-in last March 29, 2014. Our electricity is connected in the model house only while water is through delivery (source from deep well). Water tank was provided by Camella. We are the only resident there who actually moved-in. Some were able to accept the property but cannot move in yet due to lack of water and electricity.
