Minister Tertuis Simmers to handover title deeds In Blue Downs

15 July 2019

Tomorrow, 16 July 2019, Minister of Human Settlements, Tertuis Simmers will hand over 52 title deeds to deserving recipients in Blue Downs.

This hand over has been made possible through our Enhanced Extended Discounted Benefit Scheme (EEDBS).

The title deed handover is part of the Department’s strategic goal in prioritising the elderly by ensuring ownership of their properties. The department believes that handing over title deeds gives people a sense of security, dignity and pride in having full ownership of their properties.

Minister Simmers said: “I’m looking forward to handing these title deeds over to our beneficiaries - in particular 82 year old Magdalene Newman, who will receive her title deed at home. This once again demonstrates the Western Cape Government’s commitment to improving the lives of our residents.”

There will be an opportunity for interviews and photographs.
