Over the next two weeks, the City of Johannesburg will be releasing over 600 new title deeds to Joburg residents.
New Housing MMC Meshack van Wyk said in the coming 2018/19 financial year, the City aims to release some 3 500 title deeds. This, he said, will empower the poorest residents, who will be able to give their families the security of permanent tenure.
“Sadly, the dignity of living in a safe home or the ownership of one remains a pipedream that has washed away the hope of millions of people waiting for service delivery for decades,” he said.
“It is estimated that some 30 000 accommodation units are required in the short term to address the needs of the most vulnerable households.”
Van Wyk explained that, therefore, the current administration wants to speed up the delivery of title deeds. The City has, over the last two years, delivered over 5 000 title deeds across Joburg.
