Elderly residents receive title deeds to their homes

Forty elderly residents were handed historic title deeds on Monday 16 September at a ceremony held at Athlone Stadium.

This means full and unambiguous ownership to these residents, some of whom have waited more than 20 years to receive their title deeds.

The beneficiaries are from Wallacedene, Langa, Atlantis, Joe Slovo, Kleinvlei, Wesbank and Mfuleni.

“The handover of title deeds allows homeowners to live in dignity in a home that they can call their own,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee member for Urban Management, Alderman Grant Twigg. “It is an investment that will grow in value that becomes an asset for the homeowners and their loved ones. There is no greater pride than taking care of a house that you can call your own and turning it into a home.

“The issue of housing and the well-being of senior citizens are of the utmost importance. Today, many families still live as tenants or without ownership rights in houses they have lived in for generations. Handing over title deeds is a way in which the City is able to rectify the injustices of the past.

“Owning a home for many residents is something that they only dream of. We are pleased to be part of turning the dream into a reality. The formal handover of title deeds is a remarkable event that transforms lives and empowers residents.”
