Approximately 50 percent of the occupants of the 20,000 apartments in Kilamba's centrality, in Luanda, under the resolvable rental regime, have “serious defaults” in the payment of monthly installments to the State.

The government official, who was speaking to the press at the presentation of the application portal for registration in the centrality of Zango 5, a process that will start on the 27th, explained that the housing sector will work with the Ministry of Finance to find a way to discount the Debtors.

According to legal procedures, in case of permanent non-compliance, some processes may even result in evictions.

In relation to the transfer, the administrator of the Fund for Housing and Development, Adilson Souza e Silva, explained that it was an illegal act, because the full payment of the housing had to be completed, the deeds had to be completed and then a new transmission was made.

He acknowledged the existence of several transfer actions.

In relation to this practice, he said that the State does not support this, justifying that in the period of resolvable rental the residence does not yet belong to the occupier, he would soon be trespassing a property that does not belong to him.

Like the transfer, he explained that some citizens in a situation of resolvable rent their property to other people, a situation that he considered illegal and even illegal occupation.

However, Adilson Souza e Silva advised against such practices under penalty of eviction.
