Midvaal Local Municipality has been informed about another illegal residential development intended in Walkerville (Golf View Estate) by Ntha Property Developers.
Ntha Property Developers are currently advertising the sale of stands and houses for the envisioned Golf View Estate development from R350 000 to R418 000, and requesting buyers for a down payment of R150,000.
The Municipality has not received or approved any application for development for the Golf View Estate project. Moreover, there are no adequate municipal services to support the said development.
Community members face the risk of not securing transfer of properties after purchase since no formal processes have been followed. Communities who have bought into the similar illegal Ntha Property Developers development in Elandsfontein cannot obtain title deeds for the properties they bought. There is no supply of municipal water, electricity is connected fraudulently, no access routes and no proper sanitation. All of this, a result of an illegal development.
The Municipality wishes to inform all residents that the Golf View Estate project in Walkerville is illegal and will be taking legal action should the developer starts with construction work on the property.
Midvaal Local Municipality has a zero tolerance towards illegal housing developments that take advantage of vulnerable people in need of housing.
Over the past week, the Municipality has demolished 54 houses constructed illegally by Ntha Property Developers at Portion 116 Elandsfontein and has further removed 24 foundations and building materials from the site.
Members of the community are advised to refrain from purchasing stands or houses from Ntha Property Developers as they are taking advantage of the housing vulnerability within the Municipality.
The development is illegal, and it is the community who will suffer the consequences of this illegal development while the developer will be enjoying their hard-earned savings.
