Housing subsidies explained

DOHS officials Maureen Visagee, Suggest Jalubane and Alison Thomas.

At the recent Infrastructure and Housing Portfolio Committee Meeting, officials from the KZN Department of Human Settlements (DOHS) refreshed councillors on the Enhanced Extended Discount Benefit Scheme (EEDBS) applicable to all pre-1994 government housing stock.

Umdoni Municipality, working in conjunction with the DOHS, applied the EEDBS policy and most of the houses in Gandhinagar have been transferred to the beneficiaries over the years.

Currently, the focus is on those residents who have not taken transfer.

Councillor Roy Bhoola stated that he was pleased that DOHS are processing the twenty-one applications from residents who have complied with the policy and are eligible for the discounts.

Once approved, the necessary arrangements will be made to transfer the houses to the beneficiaries and they will eventually receive the title deeds to their houses.
