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.

Studies show that Children raised in a house perform better in School and in the community. Studies also show that humans who live on a house & lot ( on ground level ) tend to be happier.

Condos are ok for working professionals na gusto lang may matutulugan, condo however units over 5 floors experience more anxiety since its not natural for humans to live that high.

I am currently planning to purchase one probably next year. Preferably a 1 br unit. It's not for family occupancy let's say more of an investment kesa mapunta lang sa pekpek ipon ko lol. We probably will stay 1 month every 2 years, so maybe I will have it rented in the meantime. Still some friends advise a house and lot is probably better so idk what to choose really.....

Depends on the area. House and Lot obviously more 'liveable' (raising children having pets etc), but anywhere not so safe a Condo is better.

Dont forget to add the fact that condos arent permanent assets. Every contract stipulates only 50years or so of ownership. Meaning you dont have a lot thats really yours. If you really need it for work then do so. However, you also have to acquire a house and lot for your future.

You are speaking of leasehold contracts,  It does not apply to all condos.  For those that are freehold contracts with the builder, you own the lot as a communal property and you and the association does not pay another company (landlord) for a lease.

Oh and almost forgot, not all house and lots are also freehold contracts.  There are leasehold contracts as well.

Basically saying what I said.  From DMCI.

 

https://www.facebook...27480213981420/

 

So, as you can see there are advantages in both.  I for example, am looking at leasehold condo for investing purposes (iparerent ko) as units are cheaper and HOA maintenance fee is much less.  However, the condo I have is freehold (perpetual) as it is where I live (used to).  

 

To know what you are getting, read it in the Deed Of Sale.  It will word "leasehold" or something to effect that the land or lot ownership is not part of the sale.
