Title deeds provide formal ownership to residents and unlock economic opportunities for future generations.

As part of the City’s ongoing efforts to restore dignity in communities across the metro, the City handed over 10 title deeds to beneficiaries of the Atlantis HAB housing project and will continue to hand over more title deeds over the coming months.

Since 2012, the City restored some 10 000 historic property transfers to residents. In December 2021, the Western Cape Government allocated R12.4-million to the City for this purpose.

“Today we celebrated with residents as we empowered them with their title deeds to become first-time property owners. Over the coming months, we will continue to hand over many more title deeds to beneficiaries.

“The City will continue to prioritise historic property transfers. The financial boost from the Western Cape Government will help us finalise many historic title deeds. We encourage residents of old housing projects who have not received their title deeds to approach us so that we can assist them,” said Councillor Booi.
