Over the next two weeks, the City of Johannesburg will be releasing more than 600 new title deeds to Joburg residents, Randburg Sun has reported.
New housing MMC Meshack van Wyk said in the coming 2018/19 financial year, the City aimed to release some 3 500 title deeds. This, he said, would empower the poorest residents, who would be able to give their families the security of permanent tenure.
“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 more than 5 000 title deeds across Joburg.
