Frequently asked questions
There are currently 38 houses built in Tokyo Mansions as of 2019. However, not all houses are used as primary residence. Some are used as weekend homes while others are being rented out.
All members/homeowners of Southforbes Tokyo Mansions will be charged of H.O.A dues to cover expenses for the village security, maintenance of the amenities and common areas, and other funds that may be established.
Rule 2, Section 8 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No 9904 states that every homeowner must pay the necessary fees, charges pertaining to basic community services, and other special assessments such as but not limited to construction bond and stickers.
The swimming pool and clubhouse are part of the deliverables of Cathay Land to the residents of Tokyo Mansions as per License To Sell (LTS) issued by the HLURB for the residential subdivision project. However, the developer (CLI) haven’t turned over yet the said facilities and amenities to the HOA as of December 2019. Turnover is defined as HOA accepts the completion of said facilities and amenities, and allowing the developer secure a certificate of completion from HLURB, and transferring the TCT of a parcel of land where the amenity area is located to the HOA.
Since Cathay Land haven’t officially turned over the project to the HOA as defined on the previous paragraph, Cathay Land can only assume a presumed turnover to the HOA. It is Cathay Land’s fault that they haven’t turned over the amenities while it was still in good condition. If the property management is not implemented well, facilities will deteriorate overtime which is why the swimming pool and clubhouse need repair and rehabilitation as of to date. All land owners in Tokyo Mansions have been paying maintenance dues to Cathay Land up to 2017 to “maintain the facilities and amenities”. And since 2017 the residents of Tokyo Mansions is deprived of swimming pool and clubhouse.
Logic and common sense dictate that the HOA can only accept turnover if the amenities and facilities are in good and acceptable condition. Cathay Land however wants itself released from its obligation or in short avoid shelling out more money to repair and rehabilitate since they “PRESUMED” to have turnover the facilities to the residents already which the residents contest. The current HOA board is already exhausted dealing with Cathay Land and will proceed thru legal means and social media to let the people of the Philippines that Cathay Land is not a developer to trust as represented by their president Mr. Jeffrey Ng.

The Residents Say
The location is great and the weather is cool in Silang Cavite. But looking at the developments nearby, I guess that Silang Cavite and Sta Rosa Laguna will become a future business district similar to Makati or Alabang.
