During the investigation it was established that tenants benefited from institutional housing subsidies. It was established that this scheme was communicated to tenants as the rent to buy after which tenants would be entitled to buy the rented units. The units were sold to some tenants, whilst some did not get the opportunity to benefit. The remaining tenants had to continue renting the rental units. It is this group of tenants who feel aggrieved as some could no longer afford keeping payment of rentals. It must be mentioned that the lease agreements concluded between the tenants and the Lethabong Housing Institution (and subsequent owners) provided for the cession or rights by the landlord, in terms of which the lessor could transfer rights. It transpired that some tenants defaulted on rentals and were evicted sometime in 2014. The Gauteng Human Settlements Department became involved in intervening and made certain proposals, as redress but did not action its proposal.
