    A title deed gives a homeowner the security of tenure and confidence over their property. Your house is not your house until you have a title deed.

    1. What is a title deed?

    It is an official and legal document that proves that you are the rightful owner of a stand (house).

    2. Why must I have a title deed?

    This is the document that proves that a house or a stand is yours. It will be needed when you sell your house, apply for a loan to renovate or upgrade your house or even submit housing plans if you are planning to extend your house. This document should be kept in a safe place. Should this document be lost or misplaced, you will pay for a replacement.

    3. How can I find out if there is an uncollected title deed registered in my name?

    You may visit a housing office nearest to you. The list and addresses of the offices are listed above.

    4. Who should collect a title deed?

    The person who has been allocated a house with their name appearing on the title deed. Only a registered person/owner of a house or stand can collect a title deed.

    5. What do I need to have to collect a title deed?

    The registered person should take their green bar-coded identity book/card along when visiting a housing office.

    6. The house was given to my father/mother/aunt/sister, etc who is now deceased. What will happen now?

    The first thing is to ensure that someone should be appointed to be the heir and/or executor of the will of the deceased.

    The heir/executor will then submit a letter of appointment issued by the Magistrates' office/Master of the High Court to the same office.

    The heir/executor must also have their identity book/card and the death certificate of the deceased with them.

    7. No one has been appointed as the heir and/or executor, what do I do?

    The family member(s) of the deceased must visit one of the housing offices. They will be given a letter to take to the Master of the High Court. This letter will request the Master's office to appoint an executor/executrix for them.

    They will then submit the appointment letter along with the deceased's death certificate and the executor's identity book/card to collect the title deed.

    8. I have all the documents needed to collect a title deed, so where do I go to collect it?

    Visit the housing office in the area where your house/stand is located to collect your title deed. See the list above for the physical address of your closest office.

    9. I want to call and ask first before I go there, who do I call?

    Call the housing office in the area where your house/stand is located.
