    Title deeds handed over to housing beneficiaries in Eersterust

    Mon, Mar 26, 2018

    On Thursday, 22 March 2018,  the MMC for Housing and Human Settlement, Cllr Mandla Nkomo, led a ceremonial handover of 88 title deeds in Eersterust.


    The City of Tshwane resolved that the remaining scheme houses in Eersterust should be transferred to qualifying beneficiaries in terms of the Enhanced Extended Discount Benefit Scheme (EEDBS) policy by using subsidization up to the full prevailing individual housing subsidy amount.


    This administration is speeding up the delivery of title deeds for state-subsidised houses so that recipients have legal ownership of the property where they reside or operate a business from. This provides homeowners with an important economic asset to free them from poverty or advance their prospects. It is also in line with the 2030 vision of building sustainable communities and providing adequate, quality services and infrastructure for all residents.


    Cllr Nkomo told the new homeowners that they are now the sole and legal owners of the house allocated to them and registered in their name. “Remember, home ownership is an exciting experience, as it restores pride, dignity and respect. The house handed to you today also carries certain responsibilities and rights, obligations and duties that you must always meet and fulfil.”
