Yes, you can claim for damages. But you must consult your contract whether it is within the warranty. Because there are issues involving specifications that might be violated by the developer or contractor.
So, you can file a case against the developer or the contractor.
And take note. You have to consider the fact that sometimes there's a normal wear and tear, depende rin how you use the property. But if it's normal use and you can prove that the defects were really from the start. Parang substandard yong paggawa nila ng house, maybe you can complain against the developer.
What about those contracts that indicated "as is where is"? When the developer sells that, does that mean the seller of the house and lot is warranting that whatever it is kahit may mga sira yan, ikaw na bahala?
Yes. Because you're aware of the condition.
So, if you're a buyer, it's very important to really read the terms and conditions of the contract.
