ADMINISTRATION

Service Providers

Aside from SosaJB Property Management Corporation, which has been providing property management services for Grass Residences since 2013, the Board engaged the services of the following providers to help improve the operations of the condominium corporation:

Condominium Dues

Improved collection efficiency allowed us to maintain monthly condominium dues at PHP 70/sqm, which the previous Board reduced from PHP 100/sqm. Crediting of the August to December PHP 30/sqm refund to outstanding condominium dues was implemented early this year. The current 78% collection efficiency can still be improved. Cutting off the water supply of delinquent units was implemented by the property management office this year. he Board also had the following services deployed:
  • Credit card payment option
  • Over-the-counter bank payment of condominium dues
  • BIR Electronic Filing and Payment System (EFPS)
  • Integrated Property Accounting System (IPAS)
  • PDC warehousing
We hope that the next Board will continue to improve collection efficiency and encourage all members to exercise responsible co-ownership of Grass Residences.


Projects

In line with the Board’s directives, the property management office conducted the following activities, among others:
  • Annual refilling of fire extinguishers
  • Annual inspection (mechanical, electrical, plumbing and load testing)
  • Annual cleaning of overhead and cistern tanks
  • Landscape improvement
  • Implementation of one-way traffic from Tower 2 to Tower 1
  • Opening of the Nueva Vizcaya gate near Tower 2
  • Purchase of new lounge chairs
  • Purchase of bellhop trolleys
  • Purchase of backup submersible pumps

  • Residents’ Halloween party
Grass Residences was also the only SMDC project to enjoy a live streaming of the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight which the Board arranged in cooperation with PLDT.

Barangay Sto. Cristo held a special registration for new voters and senior citizen ID applicants from Grass Residences.

Regular celebration of the Holy Mass at the Pavilion in cooperation with the Sto. Nino Parish church was also permitted by SMDC.


ENGINEERING

Conversion from CFL to LED lighting of Tower 1 hallways was initiated by the previous Board. We continued this initiative and realized substantial savings in lighting costs for the following areas:
  • Tower 1 lobby and administration office
  • Tower 3 lobby, hallways, basement parking, and administration office
  • Parking building A
  • Parking building B
  • Bridgeway
  • Basketball court
We hope that the next Board will consider LED lighting for Tower 2 once it has been turned over by the developer to the condominium corporation.

The following engineering activities were also conducted this year:
  • Repair of damaged boom barrier system
  • Repainting of guard house
  • Repainting of basement elevator lobby
  • Rectification of bridgeway tiles

  • Repainting of parking building A elevator lobby
  • Relocation of Tower 1 STP exhaust blower

  • Construction of PWD ramp at the back entrance of Tower 3
Replacement of window-type air-conditioning units at the Tower 1 machine rooms by the condominium corporation with 4 three-tonner, floor-mounted air-conditioning units reduced heat in the elevator shafts and elevator cars.

The developer replaced the air-conditioning units at the Tower 3 machine room, decreasing problems related to elevator operation.


SECURITY

Commander Security Services was replaced by Eslabon Security Agency as the security service provider of Grass Residences. In line with the Board’s directives, Eslabon provided the following services as well:
  • Activation of boom barriers (Tower 1, Tower 3, parking buildings)
  • Activation of parking access proximity cards
  • Elevator rescue seminars
  • Delivery of Eslabon service vehicle
  • Installation of watchman clock and deployment of spine boards and wheelchairs

Today, we will vote for the reduction of the working capital from 6 months to 3 months. This is the final step required in order to amend the master deed. We hope that the majority will agree to this so that the next Board can schedule the crediting of refunds to upcoming condominium dues.

Last year's audited financial statement was released with a qualified opinion from our external auditor. This is no longer the case as the current year’s financial statements have been deemed complete upon audit. However, the existing setup wherein the current Board is held responsible for the financial statements of the previous Board is an unjust cause of confusion in terms of accountability. This is the reason why we are also asking the members to vote for the moving of the AGMM from the 3rd Saturday of November to the 3rd Saturday of May. If approved by the majority, the next Board's term will be extended so that their tenure coincides with the release of their audited financial statement.

Thank you for the year and we hope that you will extend your support to the next Board of Directors.

However, it is a common area improvement which will benefit the entire Grass Residences project. As such, SMDC has agreed to share in the construction expenses.

Thank You
magie - Saturday, Oct 31, 2015, 10:30 PM


The final list of nominees will be released today. I would like to thank the unit owners who nominated me once again. We faced a lot of challenges during this term. I thank all the silent supporters who encouraged, assisted, and gave their constructive criticisms to the Board for the benefit of the majority of our community. Being responsible for 6,000 residents is no mean feat. 24/7 availability takes a toll not just on the resident board members but on their families as well. I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to serve our community. I did not foresee politicking and backbiting happening when I took the leap. It was ideal to think that everyone would be civil and professional.

For this upcoming AGMM election, I am respectfully declining my nomination for the Board of Directors. I will continue to be of service to the condo corp in my capacity as a unit owner. I hope that the next set of board members will be given due respect, not because they are chosen by the majority, but because they are our neighbors and how we treat others is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

Security Bank completed the implementation of its post-dated checks warehousing facility for Grass Residences Condominium Corporation today. This will reduce expenses spent for daily trips to the bank to deposit maturing checks, free up billing and accounting staff of the tedious process of monitoring and managing PDCs, and ensure depositing of PDCs immediately upon maturity at no extra cost to the condominium corporation.


Security Bank Online, Security TeleBanker, and Security MobileBanker users may start paying for condominium dues and other assessments online. Please credit your payments to Grass Residences Condominium Corporation.

Security Bank will also start accepting over-the-counter payments for condominium dues and other assessments. Please request the teller to note your tower and unit number in the remarks section of the bank's copy of the payment slip and present your copy to the admin office as proof of payment.

Grass Residences Condominium Corporation is now filing tax returns and paying taxes through the Bureau of Internal Revenue's Electronic Filing and Payment System via Security Bank's e-payment facility. This minimizes the processing cost of returns and payments (receiving, pre-processing, encoding, error-handling and storage), helps avoid penalties through e-filing, and eliminates transport of physical documents and financial instruments at no extra cost to the condominium corporation.

Credit Card Payment

Please be informed that the Property Administration Office will be accepting credit card payments starting today. You may now use your credit card to pay for your condominium dues and other assessments. However, there will be a merchant fee of 2.5% on top of your principal payable for every transaction.

Availing of the credit card payment option will be at the discretion of the credit card holder. We are implementing this to provide expediency and privilege for those who prefer to pay their condominium dues and other assessments using their credit card.

This will be implemented only for Tower 1 and Tower 3 since Tower 2 is not yet ready for the terminal connection. We will be sending a notice once Tower 2 has its own terminal and ready to accept payments via credit card.

This was made possible by Grass Residences Condominium Corporation's collaboration with Security Bank and Global Payments.

Request for Ocular Inspection of SMDC Deliverables
magie - Friday, Jul 26, 2013, 1:45 AM


The HLURB monitoring team composed of Ariston Romel Lariosa and Fina Panes arrived a day earlier than scheduled for the ocular inspection of SMDC's promised amenities and facilities. We received an SMS around 11:15am from HLURB saying that they were already at the lobby to meet with us. SMDC's representatives Michelle Vibar and Arturo Flores Jr. were with them. Present during the meeting were Yolanda Ong, Chit Bernardino, Engels Antonio and myself.

Initially, Engr. Lariosa told us that our letter of request was vague. He said that it did not mention the particular deliverables that we were complaining about. We asked him if he needed another letter of request to continue with the ocular inspection, but he said that he can make do with what we have already provided.

These are his replies to each of the points raised based on our letter:

1. Disappearance of the swimming pool
HLURB presented the Grass Residences site development plan submitted by SMDC last 2007. It clearly shows five swimming pools. The only alerations were the actual locations of the two kiddie pools which were originally planned to be set beside the infinity pool but are now situated beside the clubhouse. We questioned the missing pools and mentioned that these were stated in the Master Deed that each unit owner signed. He said that it is possible that SMDC may have submitted an "altered plan" hence the missing pools. We requested for the said document but Engr. Lariosa said that they probably left it at their office.

2. Free Parking
Engr. Lariosa said that if free parking is not stated in the Master Deed then SMDC is not obliged to deliver it. We mentioned that this was the promise of SMDC's sales agents when they were still selling/marketing our units to us. He said "mahirap pag verbal, walang panghahawakan".

3. Shower Area and dressing room near the pool
Again, he said that if it is not stated in the Master Deed, SMDC is not liable for non-delivery.

4. Turn over of commercial area slots
We mentioned that the commercial units at the parking building ground floors are still not available for lease/purchase by residential unit owners who are supposed to have right of first refusal. We pointed out that theses areas were being used by SMDC as stock rooms for the furnishings of Tower 3 units. He said that it is SMDC's discretion when and to whom they will make these commercial units available.

5. Clubhouse
He said that as long as SMDC is not yet fully done with the construction of all Grass Residences units, they are not obliged to turn the clubhouse over. While we cannot use the clubhouse for free, he said that there must at least be a special discount for unit owners for the use of the clubhouse facilities.

6. Bridgeway
Engr. Lariosa took pictures of the bridgeway. I pointed out the rusts on the steel stairs and the broken floor tiles. I mentioned that we were apprehensive about using the steel stairs for fear of possible collapse, but he said that it is still ok for use. He mentioned that SMDC will be the one to repair these defects since there are still un-turned-over units.

Within 5 days after the said ocular inspection, the HLURB monitoring team will submit their findings to their office and coordinate with SMDC. They will then schedule a conciliation meeting at the HLURB legal department between the complainants and the developer. Should there be no compromise after the said meeting, it is our discretion if we will elevate this case to a higher authority/governing body.


Notes:

Since they were CC'd with the increase in condominium dues, we were advised to talk to HOA regarding that matter.

During the course of the inspection, both SMDC representatives were relatively quiet. They did not need to defend nor present SMDC's side.

Request for Sanitary Inspection of Swimming Pools
magie - Wednesday, Jul 10, 2013, 4:09 PM
Our swimming pools have become green and slimy, roughly six months after being drained, regrouted and refilled.



The Olympic size swimming pool remained green despite numerous chlorine treatments:



The west kiddie pool is still unusable due to Tower 2 construction. Dirt has accumulated in the stagnant water:



Here's a closer shot a couple of days later:



We requested CBRE and SosaJB to replace the water since the pools have become virtually unusable. Residents who took the chance of swimming in the green waters later complained about sore eyes, skin diseases and diarrhea. Both former and current property managers maintained that the water is clean and that swimming pools are normally drained only once every two years. "Mas madumi pa ang bagong palit na tubig" was a statement the we could not take. We decided to request for sanitary inspection with the help of unit owners connected to the Quezon City Health Department. Below is our request as drafted by Ryan Estevez:

Re: Request for Sanitary Inspection of Grass Residences Condominium Swimming Pools

Dear Dr. Inumerable,

Greetings!

For and in behalf of the Grass Residences Homeowners, we would like to request your good office to conduct a sanitary inspection of the swimming pools at Grass Residences Condominium, Brgy. Sto. Cristo, Quezon City. This request is due to some complaints of the residents allegedly acquiring some illnesses upon contact with the waters of the swimming pool besides the glaring fact that the waters in the pool are already green in color. As far as we can remember, the waters of the pools had not been replaced from the time it was last filled-up on the months before the summer season.

Again, this is our home and our hard-earned money, too. We cannot just seat on our side and see our children suffering from the illnesses that may be acquired from unsanitary swimming pools. From its appearance too, we cannot just dip into the pool to enjoy the amenities which were, for most of us, the very reason that convinced us to invest in this property. We just hope that your agency, which was tasked to implement the sanitary rules and regulations of this city, would extend its valuable service for the well-being of our residents.

Again, we would like to ask for your indulgence if you find this request too much to be acted upon. Thank you very much.

For and in behalf of the Grass Residences Homeowners,

ATTY. RYAN L. ESTEVEZ, MARE, MPP

Where Go the Pools?
root - Tuesday, May 21, 2013, 5:54 PM


The development plan above clearly shows an adult swimming pool between Parking Building A and Tower 3. The picture below shows bermuda grass being planted on the lawn between Parking Building A and Tower 3.



Unit owners were promised 5 swimming pools.

"Grass Residences offers 5-star country club facilities such as elegant cabanas, clubhouse and swimming pools. Refresh and frolic with the kids in the playground or in one of the five swimming pools. Keep fit in the gym, or enjoy a game of basketball or badminton. Our round-the-clock security puts your security concerns in mind."
Quoted from smdevelopment.com/smdc/?p=805

We hope that this is not a case of bait-and-switch.

The advertised "Vanguard Card-type Individual Residents ID with Swipe Card and Thumbprint Recognition" system was replaced by laminated identification cards and manual logging. "Water Features and Cascades" are either non-existent, not functional or were turned into plant boxes. Property management claims that "Wi-fi access in all Common Areas" is not an SMDC deliverable despite being advertised on the SMDC website. The list goes on. Are the adult swimming pools in front of Towers 2 and 3 going to disappear as well?
