RE: Second Amendment to the Soho Central Condominium Master Deed
We are unit owners at Soho Central Condominium in the area of Greenfield District in Mandaluyong. While there had been rumors about connections being made to our building by breaching the walls to Twin Oaks condominium via some agreement in the past, no unit owner we know ever saw a copy of such an agreement or the Second Amendment to the Master Deed which we had to get copies since none were distributed.
We only found out about the Second Amendment’s existence by a letter distributed to all mailboxes in the building regarding an Annotation to the Second Amendment this year. You may view that letter at this link:
We were never shown the second amendment prior to turnover and no unit owner since then was shown this document up until our discovery. The lack of transparency for buyers and unit owners is now a concern for a document we view with sadness given that is was not shown or fully explained.
There was no mention at this year’s attempted Annual Meeting about this amendment even though someone on the Board must have known.
Was any buyer prior to turnover in 2009 told about or shown this second amendment? We are not aware of any.
The following link is to the document obtained from HLURB with various papers. There are also no reasons for approval by HLURB. If that agency needs to approve, what are the reasons?
There is mention of Annex A (land title) in the papers; that was not provided by HLURB and removed when making copies. Here is that document - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0Sq5pyrVRznSjEzRlhWY0FvRlU/view?usp=sharing
Turnover was in May/June 2009 and it took until November 7, 2012 for the transfer of title to take place.
Thank you for any advice.
