Answer to a question from a reader

How can I check if the RDP house I applied for has been approved?

The long answer

We could only find a working online site for checking the status of your RDP house in the Western Cape. So if you are in Western Cape, you can enter your ID at this website address:

https://web1.capetown.gov.za/web1/HWL2012Online/

It will give you an immediate reply on your status.

If you are not in the Western Cape you can use this Housing Hotline number: 0800 146 873, or email info@dhs.gov.za.
