The MyEstate mobile office has a monthly schedule of visits to various areas including Macassar, Mitchells Plain, Hangberg, Albow Gardens, Kensington, Langa, Bellville South, Mfuleni, Lotus River and Parkwood.</p><p>‘The purpose of the MyEstate mobile housing office is to make the City’s services more accessible to its tenants. In light of this, our mobile office will be visiting a number of areas across the metro to bring service delivery right to their doorstep. Often tenants may not have the means to get to a municipal office for assistance.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:839px;" /> </figure></span><span><p><br>‘Seeing the tally of logged service requests increase, confirms that there is a need for this mobile office in our communities. This service plays an important role in the lives of our tenants as it gives them the opportunity to discuss their housing-related queries, be it linked to their rental accounts, service requests, or future housing opportunities, without them having to venture too far from their homes.</p><p>‘We are very pleased to see that it is fulfilling its purpose of making services more accessible to the City’s tenants. The City’s Human Settlements Directorate would like to thank our tenants who have been making use of the MyEstate mobile office and the services that it offers.</p><p>‘In the coming months, the City will continue to drive this mobile housing office directly to our tenants so they can be educated and informed about housing matters and be able to access services almost on their doorstep,’ said Councillor Booi.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:885px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span>​​Please see the MyEstate mobile office schedule.</span><p><strong>Tenants can use the following contacts for more information:</strong></p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">The City’s Human Settlements Directorate’s Call Centre: 021 444 0333</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">WhatsApp: 063 299 9927</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">Email: <a href=""></a></div></li></ul><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2020-03-03T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#f89b7d0f-ec2d-4126-83c7-9fb0a964a326;L0|#0f89b7d0f-ec2d-4126-83c7-9fb0a964a326|mobile apps;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#ada69023-b456-4376-8646-f13edaaa3e9b;L0|#0ada69023-b456-4376-8646-f13edaaa3e9b|customer service1
