RIGHT OF ACCESS OF THE LESSOR: the lessor or his authorized representative has the right to enter the premises, in the presence of the lessee or his representative, at any appropriate time, to examine or carry out repairs, for the operation and maintenance of the building, or to expose the rented premises to potential tenants or for other legitimate purposes, who deem it necessary. Rental prices in the Philippines are usually determined by market forces. There is no standard rate set by law and landlords set prices based on prevailing rents in the area. A monthly lease provides for the fixed rent for this period and cannot be changed during the term of the contract. Check to see if the rent set there includes taxes and other fees. .
