On Tuesday, 19 May the Western Cape Minister of Human Settlements, Bonginkosi Madikizela and Executive Mayor of the Overstrand Municipality, Nicolette Botha-Guthrie handed over the title deeds to an elated group of 183 beneficiaries at a ceremony held at the Eluxolweni Community Hall in Pearly Beach.

The Minister urged the recipients to place their title deeds in a safe place, and to maintain their homes with pride for themselves and future generations to enjoy. “Please do not sell your homes and end up back in shacks or as backyard dwellers. If that happens you will not qualify to get another home from Government,” the Minister stressed.

In her address Mayor Botha-Guthrie pointed out, “this title deed now means you are the legal owner of your property and should be able to use this document as a form of security should you wish to apply to a bank for a loan or further finance to purchase a car or for renovations to your house for instance.” For 63-year old Mr Souls the day was a dream come true. 

“I’m so very happy.  It means so much to know that I am now a homeowner and that with this my family’s future is assured,” said the emotional pensioner.
