About the Webinar
For decades, the problem of delivering housing finance to those with unclear titles and informal incomes appeared insurmountable. While this is now changing, with housing finance companies finding innovative ways to document income, dealing with incomplete and unclear land titles is still a complex issue. We seem to be at an interesting moment of traction for owner-led housing construction. State government support for tenure security and digitisation of land records is growing and the country’s Housing for All programme is seeing maximum uptake in the beneficiary-led construction vertical. But are things really better for those who are unable to demonstrate clear title to their properties? What have been some of the innovations in this regard? What regulatory and implementation hurdles remain, what can the private sector do and what opportunities for collaboration emerge?
