Living in a condominium unit has its benefits. For one, security is not a problem since there are guards who would always question those visitors at the main gate. The best thing is the maintenance which is part of the association dues. We can always see maintenance people cleaning the whole place and the hallways, and making sure that the plants are well-maintained. Of course, you can easily call on them to check your lighting or kitchen problems. You can also see them cleaning the drainage system. They are like rotorooter solutions, who can attend to your needs as soon as possible.
When we had a problem with the leaking shower unit, my husband reported the incident to the person-in-charge of the building. After a while, a maintenance checked what the problem is. Then, we were informed that the shower faucet needs to be replaced. It's good that we do not have to search or call plumbers who would fix the problem we once had.
However, living in a house in a village is different. The association dues might be lower than what we're paying, but we have to maintain everything by ourselves. I hope security won't be an issue since I've seen security guards roaming around every phase. Homeowners are also required to purchase stickers for their vehicles. Tricycles and visitors have to pass by the other side and leave their licenses upon entry.
Thus, we have to make sure that we know who to call in times of emergency. We also have to know whom to call on when we have major plumbing or electricity problems. Even if my husband or father can easily fix and repair those minor ones, having a professional check the major problems can really assist us.
