Legislative Issues
  • Disestablishment of South African Housing Trust
    Limited Bill. This Bill provides for the Trusts
    disestablishment and deregistration and further
    makes provision for the companys assets and
    liabilities on disestablishment
  • Community Reinvestment (Housing) Bill. The Bill
    has been drafted and is on its way to the
    Cabinet. The Bill is the second piece of
    legislation in the Departments community
    reinvestment programme and follows on the Home
    Loan and Mortgage Disclosure Act No. 63 of 2000.

10
Legislative Issues
  • Housing Amendment Bill amends certain provisions
    of the Housing Act, 1997, the Housing Consumers
    Protection Measures Act, 1998 and the Rental
    Housing Act, 1999. The amendments are necessary
    to deal with practical problems arising out of
    the implementation of the Acts.
  • Social Housing Bill will fill a gap in the
    housing delivery process by enabling poor people
    to access rental housing stock at affordable
    rentals while at the same time providing
    incentives to developers to become involved in
    the rental housing programme. The Bill will also
    boost the Governments medium density emphasis in
    housing.

11
Legislative Issues
  • Prevention of Illegal Eviction from and Unlawful
    Occupation of Land Act No. 19 of 1998 requires
    amendment, inter alia, because the courts and
    other institutions have experienced difficulty
    interpreting certain provisions of the Act.
  • Regulations 
  • Regulations under the Housing Consumers
    Protection Measures Act, 1998 relating to the
    subsidy only sector
  • Regulations under the Home Loan and Mortgage
    Disclosure Act. 2000 and
  • Regulations under the yet to be promulgated
    Community Reinvestment Act.
