Plans to issue 50,000 title deeds by March 2020, vows MEC Lebogang Maile
Gauteng Human Settlements MEC Lebogang Maile says the provincial government aims to issue at least 50,000 title deeds over the next five months.
We intend to issue at least 50,000 title deeds between now and March.Lebogang Maile, Gauteng Human Settlements MEC
On Friday, Maile met with municipal officials to discuss the title deeds backlog in the province.
Maile says that the backlog, which is close to 200,000, has been exacerbated by bureaucracy and other factors.
He explains that because some townships in the province have not yet been proclaimed by municipalities, many residents cannot have their properties registered.
