The Gauteng Department of Human Settlements (GDHS) has succumbed to the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) pressure to issue title deeds to the rightful beneficiaries of Inxiweni Walkup RDP houses in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni.
Immediately after a DA public meeting with the rightful beneficiaries of Inxiweni Walkup RDP houses, the GDHS visited the area to begin the process of collecting Home Subscriber Server (HSS) forms. These forms are used to collect data about the rightful beneficiaries to register their title deeds
It has been 13 years since the beneficiaries of Inxiweni were allocated their houses and have still not been issued title deeds. This delay has severely affected these residents who have no documents to use as proof of ownership of the housing units that they live in.
GDHS has promised the residents that the process of registering the title deeds will begin this week so that they can have their security of tenure and human dignity restored.
We will continue to monitor this process to ensure that all the rightful beneficiaries of Inxiweni receive their title deeds.
Where the DA governs in municipalities across the province, we ensure that all beneficiaries of housing projects are issued with title deeds so that they can have full ownership of their properties for the benefit of their families.
