TOPIC: Online business right on Residential Property

Online business right on Residential Property 4 years 1 week ago #16005

Good evening,

Me and my brother want to start an online delivery service in our condominium. We're done registering our business name in DTI. Our problem starts when we're getting barangay clearance/permit because they told us to get Homeowners association clearance/permit first since our business address will be in our condo unit.
Our estate manager don't want to grant us permit because He said that our condominium is for residential purposes only as they don't want any customer going to our unit.

However our business will be pure online. My brother will create a website and people in our condominium will ask for anything to be delivered in their unit. Like do the grocery for our customer and we will deliver it in their doorstep. With that said, Our business will operate online only. We have no product to stock in our unit and we don't have employees aside from the two of us.

My question is:
1. Is there any law that will allow online business to be operated on residential property?

because its not practical to rent an office since we are just providing service to our customer.

Thanks in advance..

Well, as long as you make your condo unit your business address, then it is still used for business. Even if the thing sought to be avoided (going in and out of customers) will not happen, registering the unit for business alone makes it used for business which is prohibited.

Seek services of an independent counsel when dealing with legal issues. Legal issues need scrutiny and attention.
