Accessing a Government Subsidised House

 

Accessing a government subsidised house depends on the current circumstances of the applicant which can be summarised as follows:

  2. Applicant is from eThekwini Municipal area but not from informal settlement: the applicant can only access housing opportunities if a greenfield project is available.
     
  3. When a greenfield project is available, adverts will be placed in the media detailing what is on offer and what requirements must be met.
     
  4. Qualifying Criteria: In order to be able to access the above programmes an applicant needs to meet the following qualifying criteria:
     
    • must be a South African citizen;
