Over 3 000 Tshwane residents finally have deeds to their homes

04 Dec 2017 in News

During a series of handover ceremonies led by the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Solly Msimanga, a total of 3 078 beneficiaries received title deeds to their state-subsidised houses.

The City has breached the halfway mark for the 6 000 title deeds it vowed to hand over this financial year, 2017/18. The Msimanga administration is speeding up the delivery of title deeds to state-subsidised houses so that recipients have legal ownership of the property where they reside or operate businesses from.

This provides homeowners with an important economic asset to leverage for their liberation from poverty, as well as a home to pass on to their children.

“As per our electoral promise, the DA-led administration is also providing service stands in communities with significant housing backlogs. Beneficiaries of serviced stands are also receiving title deeds and rudimentary services.”
