Municipality hands over 300 title deeds to beneficiaries in Hawston Heights

Overstrand Municipality’s MMC for Community Services, councillor Ronald Nutt, was joined by the ward councillor for Hawston Arnie Africa and Elnora Gillion on 30 August 2022 to hand over 333 title deeds to beneficiaries in Hawston.

In September last year, 374 properties were handed over to qualifying and deserving residents in this housing development that is situated on a portion of land adjacent to the R43 on the mountain side and is called Hawston Heights.

The ± 13 hectares Integrated Residential Development Project (IRDP) comprises 489 sites that include 107 residential sites for the affordable housing market, i.e. Grant Assistance Programme (GAP) and Finance Linked Individual Subsidy Programme (FLISP), 378 residential sites for the Breaking New Ground (BNG) market, two business sites, two community zoned sites and nine open public spaces, roads and a storm water retention pond. Some of the BNG houses are being built to accommodate people with disabilities.

Before handing over the title deeds to the beneficiaries, councillor Nutt reminded them that home owners are not allowed to rent out or sell a home handed over by the Government for eight years. They may also not use it as a business premises or spaza shop without the necessary approvals.

A clearly delighted Kerneels Erasmus was one of the beneficiaries who received the title deeds to their homes in Hawston Heights during a ceremony held at the Hawston Library Hall. He celebrated is 80th birthday on this day as well. He shared this special moment with councillors Ronald Nutt, Arnie Africa and Elnora Gillion.

Councillor Nutt encourages the home owners to keep their title deeds document in a safe place because it is very difficult and costly to replace lost title deeds. “It is important that this valuable asset remains in your family’s possession for generations to come, and that you know where you have filed it.”
