HLURB re­in­states orig­i­nal Villa Teresa homeowners as­so­ci­a­tion

Sun.Star Pampanga - - STORIES! -

AN­GE­LES CITY— The Hous­ing and Land Use Reg­u­la­tory Board (HLURB) re­solved with fi­nal­ity the long-stand­ing im­passe over which homeowners as­so­ci­a­tion (HOA) should man the af­fairs of Villa Teresa Sub­di­vi­sion in this city.

In its de­ci­sion pro­mul­gated on De­cem­ber 10, 2018, HLURB re­in­stated the orig­i­nal Villa Teresa Homeowners As­so­ci­a­tion, Inc. (VTHOAI) listed un­der Regis­tra­tion No. 03-250 is­sued by the Home In­sur­ance and Guar­anty Cor­po­ra­tion on Au­gust 21, 1992.

Ed­hel P. Bautista, HLURB Hous­ing and Land Use Ar­biter, signed the de­ci­sion.

The case stemmed from the com­plaint filed by a group of Villa Teresa res­i­dents rep­re­sented by Policarpio Bi­tuin, Mag­dalena Ortega, Je­sus Tio­tu­ico, Perry Roque, Ce­lestino Cosme, Vir­ginia Mi­clat, Isle Coleman, Con­suelo Pineda, Cres­en­cia Gar­cia, Dom­i­na­tor Sarmiento, Claire Car­los, Loida Dayrit Rodriguez, Bernardito Bi­tuin, Eufroncina Bala­ja­dia, Juan Pineda, Ronald Pa­bus­tan, Elsa Tio­tu­ico, Jose Baluyut, Rina Mallari, Glo­ria Sorolla, Irence Vil­lanueva, Fe Cruz, Florentino Tayag and Ardel Gerero.

The com­plainants ques­tioned the le­gal­ity of a "new" homeowners as­so­ci­a­tion formed and reg­is­tered by sev­eral res­i­dents in the same sub­di­vi­sion in spite of the ex­is­tence of a du­lyreg­is­tered HOA.

Named re­spon­dents in the com­plaint were Dr. Resti­tuto David, Jr., Dr. Aloy­sius Paras, Dr. Lour­des Ne­po­mu­ceno, Dr. Ma­ri­etta Ytur­ralde, Johnny Limjoco, Sangil Arceo, Her­nando An­ge­les, Loreta Edralin, Dr. Romeo En­riquez, Wil­frido Ayson, Jose­fina David, Ar­chi­tect Efren Tayag, Flo­rante Tim­bol, Ri­cardo Tan, Jr., and Ar­chi­tect Ro­ge­lio Torno, who rep­re­sented them­selves as mem­bers of the board of di­rec­tors of a new HOA.

The com­plainants filed the case on al­le­ga­tion that the re­spon­dents vi­o­lated the pro­vi­sions of Sec­tion 24 and 25 of Repub­lic Act 9904, or the Magna Carta for Homeowners and Homeowners' As­so­ci­a­tions, when they "re-reg­is­tered" the VTHAI with HLURB and ob­tained Cer­tifi­cate of Regis­tra­tion No. NTR21115-R.

They claimed that the re­spon­dents com­mit­ted per­jury and mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion by stat­ing in the ap­pli­ca­tion for regis­tra­tion for regis­tra­tion of a HOA that there was no pre­vail­ing HOA when they were "aware that VTHOAI ex­ists" and that the re-regis­tra­tion was ap­proved by the
