Municipality ranks high for title deeds issues

2018-05-10 06:01

THE latest handover of title deeds to the 18 beneficiaries of Gamalakhe last week raised the tally to the 70% mark.

Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) Mayor Councillor Nomusa Mqwebu coincided the handover of title deeds with the IDP and budget road shows izimbizo to cover the areas located under Cluster 4 at Qinabout Ward 26 Community Hall.

The Ray Nkonyeni Municipality is of the view that since the inception of this project in 2011, the lives of the people in the affected areas such as Gamalakhe, Palmview,
Marburg and Merlewood are now better.

Normally the holder of the title deed is faced with honouring monthly bond payments which are linked to the market value of the property and inflation indexes which are more expensive and difficult to cope when you are a middle income earner or unemployed.

“So therefore, in view of this, the government carries that burden and offers the beloved resident with that benefit. The municipality is also of the view that it has performed well in facilitating the transfers of the title deeds to reach this stage which this project is currently in,” said Mqwebu.

The Kwa Zulu-Natal Provincial Department of Human Settlement in 2010 confirmed the list of the transfer of housing stock and thereby the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality started the first batch of handover process in 2011.

The Gamalakhe handover is another demonstration of the government to hasten the process of transferring the remaining properties to deserving beneficiaries and thereby restoring their dignity.
