SPS. GOLEZ v. Meliton Nemeño GR NO. 178317 Sept. 23, 2015 FACTS: Meliton Nemeño owns a commercial lot in Zamboanga Del Sur. In 1989 he entered into a Lease Contract with the petitioners, Sps. Ricardo and Elena Golez, in which the latter bound themselves to construct a commercial building worth P143,823 on the leased lot. As per contract, instead of paying the rent in the form of money, petitioners would withhold such payment and apply the accumulated rent to the cost of the building they built on the leased property. In May 1992 the building was burned down. Because of the destruction of the building, Nemeño sent a letter demanding the accumulated rentals from March 17, 1989 to June 17, 1992 totaling P78,000.00. As the demand was left unheeded, Nemeño filed a complaint for collection of rentals plus damages before the RTC. ISSUE 1: Are petitioners liable to pay respondent back rentals? HELD: Yes, the SC sustained the award of back rentals in favor of respondent, but did not agree with the amount imposed by the courts a quo.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
