Hi there. i need to check with you: Can an employee to whom the LRA not apply, who receives a housing subsidy, rent this property out, and rent another property? No profit is being made, and this was done purely for family reasons, as well as travelling to work which will be cut by say about only 10 minutes. Must this member declare that he is renting out his property? Can he lose his (i) subsidy, or (ii) the property? i am concerned about him losing either of the two. Thank you. PS. I AM NOT SURE WHAT THE TERMS OF THE CONTRACT ARE. MANY THANKS

They can stop the subsidy, the contracts usually states that you need to live in the subsidised house, if you rent it out you will not get the subsidy.

Check with a lawyer, but I don' t think the employer can do or change anything. As long as U have a bond, the subsidy is to help with bond repayments. Weather U live in the property or not shouldn' t make a difference.
