JOSHCO’s new rental projects

The City of Johannesburg’s Social Housing Entity, JOSHCO, plans to allocate more than 600 affordable rental units in the inner-city in the coming months. To this end, twelve (12) buildings have been approved for quality, low-cost housing as part of the City of Johannesburg’s plan to revitalise the inner city following the significant backlog of affordable housing.

This follows Johannesburg Executive Mayor Cllr Herman Mashaba recent launch of the Inner City Transformation Roadmap, which seeks to tackle the housing challenge within the inner city and create safer, cleaner and connected communities with access to economic opportunities within the area. 

The roadmap is a multi-department and multi-entity supported response to the challenges of urbanisation within the inner city. Residents earning between R2 880 and R18 000 can now apply for affordable rental accommodation managed by JOSHCO.   

Please see the new and improved application process:

Stage 1: Complete an enquiry form at head office

This process will assist the leasing administrator to pre-determine whether or not the applicant qualifies for any of the JOSHCO units considering the following conditions:

  • If the applicant is a South African Citizen (18 years and older)
  • If the applicant’s salary is within the qualifying income bracket for a specific project
  • If the applicant’s monthly expenditure is not above the monthly rental required
  • If the applicant is not interested in a project that has a priority market/ target group
  • If the applicant is listed on any of the credit bureaus
  • If the applicant has special needs i.e. a disability unit and if the project of interest caters

for such

  • If the applicant’s salary is higher/lower or if the project is full – would the applicant like an

alternative project

Stage 2: Receive an sms

An SMS will be sent to everyone that completed the enquiry form indicating the following:

  • If the applicant qualifies or does not qualify for a JOSHCO unit
  • Whether or not the applicant was pre-approved to proceed to Phase 2
  • Documents required to complete a formal application
  • Details of the appointment with the administrator that will process your application

Stage 3: Successful applications

If the application is successful,

  • A Leasing administrator will invite you to choose a unit
  • Pay the deposit
  • Sign a lease agreement
  • Get the key to the units

Stage 4: Tenants education

You will be invited to attend a compulsory Tenant Workshop.

Stage 5: Moving into a JOSHCO unit

You will be handed over to a housing supervisor to complete a moving in form which will serve as a notice to the estate security to gain access to the property.
