About TUHF

The current economic climate in South Africa has rendered thousands of families unable to purchase their own homes or even access affordable rentals.

This is why the TUHF is dedicated to assisting those who are able to refurbish buildings and create new homes with the necessary finance to do so.

The TUFH story

TUFH is enabling property financing to those who are able to identify and unearth potential in refurbishing buildings in the inner cities of South Africa. Many of the buildings in the hearts of major cities are run-down and no longer habitable or safe. But, with some TLC, it will be possible to turn these rundown buildings into homes and comfortable living spaces for those who need affordable housing.

These refurbishment projects will not only create housing opportunities but employment opportunities too which, in turn, can contribute to a more sustainable economy within South Africa. While they are currently focusing on Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, and Bloemfontein they plan to expand their services to other major cities in the future.

What sets them apart

In the past thirteen years of practice, they have provided over R4 billion to the development of inner-city residential areas and have enabled the development of over 20 000 residential units. But what makes them different from the other financial lenders is that they treat customers as more than those in need of finance, they treat them as entrepreneurs who will create, innovate, and build a more sustainable future for South Africa.

They also provide constant support to these entrepreneurs by negotiating better deals, offering expert advice, and helping to arrange construction through the fifteen-year loan. In doing so they ensure that the project is feasible, affordable, and meets the demands of the market.

TUHF Services

Funding the future is more about providing finance, it is about discovering the true potential in the dreams and goals of others.

At TUHF they like to think of themselves as wish granters or dream enablers because that is exactly what they love to do with their range of financial services.

Easy property finance

TUHF provides access to financial assistance for residential refurbishment projects up to the maximum value of R50 million. These projects can include purchasable buildings, refurbishment projects, ground construction, and property conversions but all these projects need to be in aid of creating residential homes. The home loan that you apply for covers the purchase of the property as well as the necessary construction components.

The borrowing amount can be repaid over a period of fifteen years and the rate attached to the loan is linked with the current prime rate. But are also flexible and understanding so there are no monthly fees to be paid. Their team can also organise special financial restructuring according to progress in development.

Bridging finance is also an option

The bridging finance that they provide is ideal for covering temporary needs during the slower times of development. These short-term loans are available for up to a six-month term and can be used to cover the following needs among others:

  • Funds for auctions
  • Transfer fees and costs
  • Rates Clearance Certificates
  • Profit from the sale of the property

Their bridging finance options are highly flexible and adaptive to the circumstances of the client. They operate them at competitive prices and make adjustments based on the particular problem that is being faced.

If you are unable to afford this 20% then consider looking into the Intuthuko Fund for assistance.
