TUHF LogoAs a campaign to improve the capital structure of TUHF, the NHFC was a significant driving force and a catalyst in the formative years of Trust for Urban Housing Finance, today no longer a trust, but operating as the public company TUHF Limited.As a group of companies, TUHF drives inner city investment by helping potential investors become property entrepreneurs and offers loans for the purchase and/or refurbishment of inner city residential property country-wide, with footprints currently in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and the Free State. The NHFC owns an equity stake of 33% of TUHF and exposure through providing debt finance; this is an example of NHFC's endorsement of TUHF as the beacon of success achievable in the affordable housing market through effective execution of strategy.

  • TUHF has an in-depth understanding of inner city property markets, is well networked within the inner cities, making it possible for the company to deliver a better service to its clients.
