The Johannesburg Department of Human Settlements has announced that HOP houses will be taken back by foreigners in Alexandri.
The foreigners claim they bought the houses but the department says that the houses are not earmarked for foreigners.
Whoever sold the houses to them is not clear, but in terms of legislation, a property is first the buyer’s possession when registered on his behalf.
Real estate sales should also not be allowed to foreigners who do not have citizenship in South Africa.
