Tenure Support Centre

29 August 2023


TSC Librarian


Tenure Support Centre

South Africa

The Tenure Support Centre (formerly known as the Transaction Support Centre) has been assisting lower-income individuals resolve their title deed problems for over five years. Since its establishment in 2018, the TSC has assisted over 1700 clients and secured over 600 title deeds. It has become a trusted service provider for households who have problems with their title deeds and serves as a key referral point for government departments.


On Tuesday, 29th August 2023, the Tenure Support Centre hosted a public presentation to reflect on the highlights, lowlights, and lessons learned over its first five years in operation. Using a combination of case studies and area-based analysis, the team shared their understanding of the nature, scale, and ramifications of the title deed challenge across urban South Africa and the solutions required to solve it at scale. The full recording and presentation slides (PDF, 3.90 MB) are available. 


For any questions related to the presentation or the TSC, please contact Illana Melzer (illana@71point4.com) or Kecia Rust (kecia@housingfinanceafrica.org).
