HOUSING AUTHORITY

The sale of Housing Authority’s Tacirua East Sub-division Phase 3A land has commenced.
Acting chief executive, Jagdish Prasad, said the authority would now sell lots from its various sub-divisions under development as housing packages.
Customers would also have the opportunity to access Government’s Housing Assistance Grant.
“We are urging customers who will be allotted these lots to take up our housing loan packages. This means they can buy the land and build their homes immediately,” he said.
“This is how Housing Authority is assisting its target group of those earning $50,000 per annum and below towards realising the Constitutional right to housing under Section 35.
“At the same time, customers are able to access Housing Assistance Grant of $10,000.”
In the meantime, Mr Prasad said the authority wanted to ensure fairness and transparency would prevail which is the reason they were allocating lots to those who had already registered their interest.
“We are matching this information to the lots. So, for example, if a customer had applied for a lot in Tacirua in 2012 and a different customer applied in 2006, the first priority will be given to the one who had applied earlier,” he said.
“But other factors will also be taken into consideration such as income, whether they are first-home owners, and their eligibility for a land and house package.”
Therefore, Mr Prasad urged customers whose information has changed like contact details, salary and others, to inform the authority to have their data updated.
“This will allow the authority to reach them easily otherwise they can lose out on the opportunity to own a home,” he explained.
Meanwhile, development works for Phase 1A at Tacirua is almost nearing completion.
These would be available for sale by the end of September with 459 lots.
Also the first 100 lots from the Authority’s Wainibuku Sub-division will soon be available after approval of the survey plans by the Lands Department.
