The Rental Housing Act, 1999 (Act No. 50 of 1999) as amended seeks to regulate the relationship between tenants and landlords by ensuring that there is an amicable dispute resolution mechanism in the rental housing sector. Notwithstanding, the Department of Human Settlements has now developed the regulations under the Act which are necessary to give effect to the commencement of the Rental Housing Act,1999 as amended.
It is therefore within this context that the Department is calling upon all the Provincial Rental Housing Tribunals, Provincial Departments, Municipalities, Tenants and Landlords, Social Housing sector, managing agents and estate agents including the public at large to participate and comment on the draft regulations to be published by the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation. To support and enhance the public comment process, the Department of Human Settlements will hold public information sessions as set out in the schedule hereunder.
