About 9 000 Council-owned rental properties in the metro are available to qualifying tenants for purchasing through the City’s rental sales programme.
These properties include free-standing and semi-detached houses, terraced or row houses and maisonettes that are located across the city in areas such as Gugulethu, Valhalla Park, Mitchells Plain, Heideveld and Nyanga, among others.
The City is encouraging qualifying tenants to make use of the opportunity to become the owners of the rental dwellings many of them had occupied for many years.
Over the last five years, the City has sold 5 524 units out of about 14 500 saleable units identified in 2013.
