The allocation of title deeds to beneficiaries of state houses has recently come back into the spotlight. The Minister of Human Settlements placed it as one of her highest priorities in her Budget Speech in Parliament in July 2014.

Many of the recommendations from Urban LandMark's 2011 research have contributed towards finding practical ways to address the huge challenge in catching up with the title deeds backlog. Our close partners in this work, the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa published their RDP Assets Study at the same time. This gives greater depth to the nature of the challenge in each province, and a fuller picture of how state-funded houses are used by people as a social and economic asset in many different ways.
