George Municipality hands over title deeds to rightful beneficiaries of old council and RDP houses

George Municipality is on a drive to intensify the issuing of title deeds to beneficiaries. The aim is to ensure that title deeds are issued to their rightful beneficiaries as soon as possible. The title deeds are mostly for old scheme properties and RDP properties that are already occupied. All new title deeds are handed out when the houses are handed over to the owners. The Title Deed Restoration Outreach took place in three wards last week – Blanco, Rosemoor, Parkdene and Ballotsview.  A total of 78 clients visited the sessions and 44 title deeds were handed out to the registered owners of the properties.  It came to light that many of the registered owners have passed away and therefore these deeds could not be handed out.  The official of the Section: Property Management explained the way forward to the families of those who passed on.


Hendrik and Maria  Wylbach received their title deed from the Ward Councillor for Ward 8, Cllr Samuel Vorster. On the far left with them is Cyrildene Fredericks and on the far right is Petro Botha, both officials from the Human Settlements Directorate at the handover in Parkdene.
