House and Lot. Katakot kaya pag may lindol o sunog.
Choose condos away from fault lines if you are particularly afraid of potential destruction of building due to quakes. Re fire, choose condos with sprinklers.
Fire mostly happens to houses than condos because of 2 things: short circuit due to "tapping" and gas leaks.
What is more likely to happen is flooding inside of house and lots. Condo residents are spared from getting their properties damaged as the ground floor itself is elevated, much more higher floors. It's actually sad to see from my balcony on 25th floor the spate of destruction caused by floods on houses below.
But you can also choose elevated areas to buy your house on. I did this myself, I moved out of the city that floods and went farther into the jungles (LOL) on top of a big hill and that is where I chose to build.
Now for every pro there is a con. Elevated areas avoid flooding but you get landslides so make sure also embankments are fortified with large stones or boulders. The main cause of erosion is soil getting hit by rain that they loosen over time and starts to roll down. Stones on top of soil prevents breaks the rain from damaging the soil surface.
