The Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA) reveals that it is ready to roll-out the much-anticipated Residential Rent Relief Programme that will significantly assist social housing tenants, impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic, meet their rental obligations.

The National and Western Cape Department of Human Settlements, together with its agency, the Social Housing Regulatory Agency (SHRA), recently launched the Anchorage Social Housing Project in Glenhaven, in the Western Cape.

Having exhausted all other options to rectify ongoing service delivery issues from the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB), the Real Estate Business Owners of South Africa (REBOSA) has officially engaged in legal action against the regulator.

There is a need to achieve greater scale in delivery and improve conditions for private-sector investment in social housing, National Treasury pointed out in its 2021 Budget Review.

The Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu has issued a clarion call to potential investors including the banking institutions to assist government’s efforts in meeting the demand for social housing units by investing into social housing projects. Sisulu says the investment opportunities are spread across the country’s metros. 

A senior government official is among 11 suspects expected to appear in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court in connection with dubious land deals amounting to almost R124 million.

In a thought-provoking virtual seminar hosted today, over 200 industry stakeholders joined the Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA) Investment Seminar to discuss the urgent solutions needed to address South Africa’s high-density social housing challenges and revitalise the country’s economy.

Department grants an extension for the Industry and public to submit comments on notice 139 of 2020 - Property Practitioners Regulations.

The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) says it will not penalise estate agents who submit late audit records for the 2019/2020 financial year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National Home Builders Registration Council will resume offering its full service operations at its main Provincial Offices as of Monday, 8th of June 2020 in line with the Level 3 Lockdown Regulations.
