she is buying a bargain condo for 1.2 million peso for her daughter to stay while she is going to college

I gotta say... this is waaaay more common than I would have thought. Almost all my wife's nieces and nephews have stayed in places that were purchased by their parents. They even took out loans to buy them sometimes.  A few were about the size of a large prison cell, but one sister built a whole house for "everyone in the family" to use just for this reason.  

Note - We never got involved in any of it... loans, down payments, tuition, etc. :biggrin:

Maybe she is mature and considerate, but I would be worried that she would invite a bunch of friends to live in the Marikina house.  Then those friends invite friends, could turn into a sorority/frat/party house.  And some young people, especially in groups,, can be rough on a house.

If they take the offer up of the house, I'll chuck in for the rent if I can stay, thanks. :thumbsup:

You might want to consider that she may never leave and you wont get your house back.

I’ve given up the thought that the house was ever mine in the first place

You'd be very lucky to get a condo even in a bad area of Manila for 1.2m and certainly not near any good school or university but it's better than a sick caribou I suppose. .
