Buy a City rental unit

The City’s Public Housing Department is offering qualifying tenants the opportunity to become the owners of the rental dwellings they occupy.

More than 9 000 Council-owned rental properties are on offer under the City’s rental sales programme. They include a selection of free-standing and semi-detached houses, terraced or row houses and maisonettes across the city, in areas such as Gugulethu, Valhalla Park, Mitchells Plain, Heideveld and Nyanga, among others.

Financial assistance is also available to qualifying tenants, to help cover a portion or all the cost associated with the purchase price, rental and service arrears.

After the properties are transferred to the new owner, they become a financial asset which can either be sold to earn a profit or added to the property owner’s estate so that it can be included in a will.

If you have been living in a City rental property and want to check whether you and your property qualify, look out for the MyEstate mobile office in your area or visit your nearest housing office, with the following:

  • A payslip not older than three months
  • An affidavit, if unemployed
  • Proof of self-employment and six months’ certified income and expenditure statements
  • A confirmation letter from the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) if you receive a social grant
  • Identity documents for you and your spouse if applicable
  • A marriage/divorce/death certificate

Clearing stormwater system ahead of winter rains

Roads in certain areas across Cape Town are prone to flooding during the rainy season. The City is doing all it can to clear blocked stormwater drains, caused by illegal dumping, ahead of the winter rains but we also need the valuable support of our residents.

You can help by:

  • clearing your driveways, pavements and gutters from fallen leaves and rubble
  • not dumping objects into stormwater drains – including household waste, rubble and substances such as vehicle oil.
  • reporting a stolen or damaged drain cover by logging a service request or calling the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089 or the Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63.

Please include your name and contact number and the exact location of the blocked/damaged drain or flooded area to help us respond faster.
