How to Buy
Buying a Condotel Unit and its Difference from Buying a Condominium Unit
At the pre-selling stage, there is not much difference in the procedure for buying a residential condominium unit from
a condotel unit. In buying a condominium or condotel unit, the buyer should first provide the Developer with a letter stating
that he/she is offering to buy the said property. Afterwards, the buyer must then furnish the Developer with all the needed
documents, including the Rental Pool Agreement and pay the reservation fee of Php50,000.00, the 20% of the TCP as down payment
or 90% of the TCP depending on the financing plan that he chooses.
12 months before turnover, condotel unit buyers must also pay the Rental Pool Joining Fee amounting to
Php280,000-300,000. The fee includes all the furnishing costs for the unit to make it hotel room standard and the Rental Pool
membership fee. The rental pool membership fee would also advance 3 months’ operating expenses to jumpstart hotel operations,
and also cover initial hotel capital expenditure.
However, the condotel unit buyer must be aware of the conditions for buying a condotel unit enumerated in the Rental
Pool Agreement. Any prospective buyer must be willing to subject their units to the provisions outline in the Agreement.
We offer the cash and deferred cash payment terms for both the condotel and condominium units. We also offer 20%-30%-50%
3-stage installment payment term for the condominium units. A Php50,000 reservation fee is required for both the condotel
and the condominium purchase.
For cash payment, a 10% discount is offered, with 90% of the contract price payable in 30 days from reservation. The
remaining 10% of the contract price will be payable upon turnover.
For the deferred cash payment, 100% of the contract price will be spread over 36 equal monthly payments.
For the 20%-30%-50% installment, a 6% finance charge will be applied on the contract price. 20% of the contract price
is due 30 days after reservation, 30% payable for the next 36 months after and the remaining 50% of the contract price payable
upon unit turnover.
For condominium units, one (1) parking slot is already allocated for each unit. The price for the parking slot is already
included in the condominium unit’s TCP.
For condotel units, the parking spaces are retained as a condotel common area to cater to the hotel guests. Parking
would definitely not be a problem since the hotel will provide valet services for the guests.
Joining Fee Payment
The joining fee would have to be fully paid 12 months before turnover of the condotel unit to the owner. The
condotel unit owner could opt to pay for the joining fee in cash or arrange an amortization scheme with the developer starting
two years before turnover.
Fees – Condotel and Residential Condominium Units
owners at the Grand Cenia Hotel and Residences are required to pay Condominium Association dues on a monthly basis.
the Condotel owners, the amount of the Condominium Association dues shall be deducted from their share of the Rental Pool
income and be turned over by the hotel operator to the Condominium Corporation.
Corresponding taxes would also have to be paid.
