Primary Transfer Toolkit Learning Series

The Tenure Support Centre hosted a series of short, practical webinars to discuss common complexities that emerge during the transfer of state-subsidised housing (‘RDP houses’) to beneficiaries and how best to resolve them. This learning series forms part of the Beneficiary Administration & Primary Transfer Toolkit developed by the TSC in collaboration with the City of Cape Town’s Tenure Administration and Transfers Programme. The lessons captured in the Toolkit are based on the direct experience of the TSC in dealing with the primary transfer of 780 properties in Makhaza, Khayelitsha.


Through this learning series we hope to help housing authorities and municipal officials better understand the primary transfer process and the legal processes that underpin it. 


The recordings from the first two learning series are available in the links below.
