I have a vacation home in Cagayan de Oro and I am trying to sell it very hard, but face difficulties to get any buyer.
There are many reasons for that. In order to protect the property I hire 2 caretakers who can guard the house all 24 hrs. I also use them to water the plants which takes maximum 30-40 minutes per day.
One caretaker must always stay in the house all 24 hrs. There is almost no other work except their own work of cleaning their own accommodation.
Earlier I paid them 5000 to 8000 pesos a month to every caretaker, free accommodation, free water and free electricity, but they all lock the door and don't stay in the house in my abscence.
Before going out, they also switch off the main electricity switch so that hard disk of CCTV cameras stops recording.
That way they think that I can't find out that house was unguarded. They can be out of the house for some hours to many days because I registered it on some occasions when I went there unexpectedly.
Thereby they create more problems for me as nothing is recorded in case of burglary. Once I thought that high salary could give me sincere workers, but there is no difference whether I pay them 5000 or 8000 pesos a month.
I have also used an agency from Manila to get caretakers and I paid 13000 pesos a month to each caretaker, but I faced the same problem.
Can anybody tell me a better way to find an honest caretaker in Cagayan de Oro?
I have no relatives or other friends in Philippines who can help me. If I make friends they also cheat.
Even workers through agencies do the same ting and agency doesn't take any responsibility.
How can I solve the problem and what are my rights against agencies in case workers hired through them don't guard my house properly and there is a burglary?
