Riding for title deeds: Pierre tackles Cradle Mountain MTB race
BetterBond CIO Pierre van Lelyveld is kicking off the Team BetterBond campaign to raise money for the Khaya Lam title deed initiative this weekend as he takes on the tough two-day Cradle Mountain Trophy race at Maropeng. You can read all about the initiative here and then support Pierre by making a donation to Khaya Lam..
This nationwide initiative aims to ensure that every homeowner receives a title deed and the peace of mind that comes from having security of tenure. It was started by the Freedom Foundation, and to date has resulted in the delivery of more than 7500 title deeds to underprivileged households who had been living with the constant threat of eviction.
With help from its legal and banking supporters, Khaya Lam has also managed to reduce the cost of obtaining or providing a title deed from around R6500 to R2500 - and the BetterLife Foundation contributes to this cost for each bond that is registered through BetterBond. In this way every home buyer who obtains their bond though us is automatically helping another family in SA to gain title to their home.
