Press Release

TMRC AND CAHF WORK TOGETHER TO DEEPEN UNDERSTANDING OF HOUSING FINANCE IN TANZANIA 19 March 2018 The Tanzania Mortgage Refinance Company Limited (TMRC) and the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF) jointly committed to deepening understanding of the housing finance market in Africa, and in Tanzania in particular, through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on future cooperation, this week. Both organisations have committed themselves to cooperate in applying their knowledge to advance public and private initiatives to increase access to housing finance, especially to the lower and middle income housing market, and to improve the functioning of the housing market in Tanzania. The focus of this partnership is specifically on Tanzania. TMRC’s focus is limited to Tanzania and CAHF has identified Tanzania as a priority country in terms of its three-year strategy which extends to 2021. A key strategic focus area for both CAHF and TMRC is to develop data platforms and analytical frameworks to enable effective, data-driven policy and decision-making in support of affordable housing markets in Tanzania. The strategic intent of the partnership between TMRC and CAHF is to collaborate in support of effective, data-driven policy and decision-making in Tanzania’s housing market. This will involve the sharing of data and methodologies, as well as the joint commissioning of research and analysis, on the role of housing in the Tanzanian economy, the functioning of Tanzanian property markets, the performance of Tanzania’s mortgage market, as well as other issues to be explored in the course of the partnership. 6 | The Darproperty - May 2018

In signing the agreement, Mr Oscar Mgaya, the Chief Executive of TMRC, outlined that the collaboration would begin with four initiatives: • Data exchange towards the mutual development of databases to support analytics for the development of Tanzania’s mortgage market • Building a Housing Economic Model for Tanzania (or for a specific State or city as a first step) • Mortgage market analysis: data analysis to assess mortgage access, performance and profitability in Tanzania. Over the course of the collaboration, additional initiatives may also be identified. Both TMRC and CAHF recognise the mutual advantages of collaboration with each other and with the broader network of organisations operating in Africa’s housing sector, given their overlapping objectives and programmes. This MoU represents one of several such partnerships in which both TMRC and CAHF contribute to and facilitates joint initiatives and shared learning opportunities in areas of mutual interest.

TANZANIA MORTGAGE REFINANCE COMPANY LIMITED (TMRC) Tanzania Mortgage Refinance Company Limited (TMRC) is a specialized private sector financial Institution that provides long-term funding to financial institutions for the purposes of mortgage lending. It has the objective of supporting financial institutions to do mortgage lending by refinancing Primary Mortgage Lenders' (PMLs') mortgage portfolios. This type of lending is also known as wholesale or secondary market lending. TMRC is neither taking deposits nor lending directly to individuals. It refinances mortgage loan portfolios rather than extending mortgage loans to individuals and caters to banks rather than individual borrowers.

TANZANIA MORTGAGE REFINANCE COMPANY LIMITED (TMRC) TMRC’s Vision is to become the preferred secondary market intermediate for mortgage financing in Tanzania. Its Mission is to expand home ownership in Tanzania by providing long term financing to primary mortgage lenders. TMRC motto is “home ownership through financial intermediation” guided with its Core Values of Teamwork, Integrity, Passion and Efficiency. TMRC is committed to improving the state of market intelligence for Tanzania’s mortgage market, and as such is working hard to promote data and information in cooperation with the Bank of Tanzania. As the TMRC works with its members in the development of Tanzania’s mortgage market, it is championing and collecting, relevant and timely data on Tanzania’s housing sector. TMRC is a central player in Tanzania’s growing housing sector, working with both lenders and developers to address the gaps in the housing value chain. THE CENTRE FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING FINANCE IN AFRICA (CAHF) The Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa is a not-for-profit company with a vision for an enabled affordable housing finance system in countries throughout Africa, where governments, business, and advocates work together to provide a wide range of housing options accessible to all. CAHF’s mission is to make Africa’s housing finance markets work, with special attention on access to housing finance for the poor. CAHF pursues this mission through the dissemination of research and market intelligence, supporting cross-sector collaborations and a market-based approach. The overall goal of CAHF’s work is to see an increase of investment in affordable housing and housing finance throughout Africa: more players and better products, with a specific focus on the poor.

CAHF’s work covers four main areas: (1) understanding housing markets, (2) monitoring housing sector performance, (3) exploring innovation in housing finance, and (4) supporting housing finance market development. As part of this approach, CAHF regularly undertakes and commissions research; develops market intelligence on country and regional housing markets; hosts forums, strategy discussions, and workshops; and participates in local and international conferences and debates on housing finance. Since its formation, CAHF has come to be known as the most comprehensive and up to date source of information on housing finance in Africa. Its research and other material is regularly used by investors, lenders, pension funds, and other financiers; legal practitioners, researchers and academics; policy makers and other housing finance practitioners to scope and pursue the opportunities for extending access to housing finance across Africa. As a thought leader in the sector, CAHF is a respected advocate for financial inclusion in housing finance in Africa. CAHF’s work is supported by FSD Africa and UKaid, the French Development Agency, the South African National Treasury and other funders. A key area of CAHF’s work is its Citymark programme. Primarily focused on South Africa at this stage, Citymark takes deeds registry data framed as indicators at the neighbourhood level and considers market size, value, activity and performance on a segmented basis that highlights affordable housing in particular. The programme offers its analysis through a business intelligence platform that policy makers and housing sector practitioners use to explore local level property market activity. More broadly, CAHF is actively engaged in the collection, analysis and sharing of data that promotes investment in affordable housing across Africa. All of this is available on CAHF’s website: The Darproperty - May 2018| 7 The Darproperty - August 2015 | 7

These 12 Habits Will Help You Reach Financial Freedom


chieving financial freedom is a goal for most people. Yet, too many of them fail to reach that goal. The following are twelve key habits that help pave the way. 1. Set Life Goals A general desire for “financial freedom” is too vague of a goal. What does it mean to you? Write down how much you should have in your bank account, what the lifestyle entails and at what age this should be achieved. The more specific your goals, the higher the likelihood of achieving them. Then, count backwards to the current  age and establish financial mileposts at regular intervals. Write it all down neatly, and put the goal sheet at the very beginning of your financial binder. 10 | The Darproperty - May 2018

2. Make a Budget Making a monthly household budget and sticking to it, is the best way to guarantee all bills are paid and savings are on track. It is also a monthly routine that reinforces your goals and bolsters resolve against the temptation to splurge. 3. Pay Off Credit Cards in Full Credit cards and similar high-interest consumer loans are toxic to wealthbuilding. Make it a point to pay off the full balance each month..  Student loans, mortgages and similar loans typically have much lower interest rates, making them less of an emergency to pay off. 4. Create Automatic Savings Pay yourself first. Enroll in your employer’s retirement plan and make full use of any matching contribution benefit. It is also

wise to have an automatic withdrawal for an emergency fund that can be tapped for unexpected expenses and an automatic contribution to a brokerage account or similar account. Ideally, the money should be pulled the same day you receive your paycheck so it never even touches your hands, avoiding temptation entirely. However, keep in mind that  the recommended amount to save is highly debated; and in some cases, the feasibility of such a fund is also in question. For more on this, see Why Emergency Funds are a Bad Idea.  5. Ignore the Joneses A braggart neighbor showing off a new car or his latest smartphone is no reason to do the same. Smile politely, nod, and take comfort knowing your reward is coming tenfold in the future.

6. Watch the Credit A person’s credit history determines what rate is offered when buying a new car or refinancing a home. It also impacts seemingly unrelated things, such as car insurance and life insurance premiums. The reasoning is a person with reckless financial habits is also likely to be reckless in other aspects of life such as driving and drinking. This is why it is important to get a credit report at regular intervals to make sure there are no erroneous black marks ruining your good name. 7. Negotiate Many Africans are hesitant to negotiate for goods and services, worrying it makes them seem cheap. Overcome this cultural handicap and you could save thousands each year. Small businesses, in particular, tend to be open to negotiation, where buying in bulk or repeat business can open the door to good discounts. 8. Continuous Education Review all applicable changes in the tax

laws each year to ensure all adjustments and deductions  are maximized. Keep up with financial news and developments in the stock market, and do not hesitate to adjust your investment portfolio accordingly. Knowledge is also the best defense against those who prey on unsophisticated investors to turn a quick buck. 9. Proper Maintenance Taking good care of property makes everything from cars and lawn mowers to shoes and clothes last longer. Since the cost of maintenance is a fraction of the cost of replacement, it is an investment not to be missed. 10. Live Below Your Means Mastering a frugal lifestyle by having a mindset of living life to the fullest with less is not so hard. In fact, many wealthy individuals developed a habit of living below their means before rising to affluence. Now, this isn’t a challenge to adopt a minimalist lifestyle nor a call to action to head to the dumpster with things you’ve hoarded over

the years. Just making small adjustments by distinguishing between things you need rather than things you want is a financially helpful and healthy habit to put into practice. 11. Get a Financial Advisor Once you’ve gotten to a point where you are able to discern if you’ve amassed a decent amount of wealth, be it liquid investments, or assets that are tangible but aren’t as readily available to convert to cash, getting a financial advisor to educate and help you make decisions is highly suggested. 12. Exercise and Eat Right The principle of proper maintenance also applies to the body. Some companies have limited sick days, making it a notable loss of income once those days are used up. Obesity and ailments make insurance premiums skyrocket, and poor health may force earlier retirement with lower monthly income.

ware of the acute accommodation shortage in public universities, Ms Priscilla Mwangi decided to invest in a hostel in Gwa-Kairu in Ruiru, Kiambu County, in 2008.   But after eight months of juggling between managing it and overseeing the construction of another hostel, she was overwhelmed. “The work was becoming too hectic. Students need a lot of attention since they have diverse needs. I realised I needed a property manager, so I hired one,” says Ms Mwangi. However, in less than two months, the number of tenants started declining; in fact, some rooms would remain vacant for months. Her efforts to find out what the problem was from the manager yielded nothing. Since that had never happened under her watch, she believed the problem had to do with the manager, so she fired the manager. “I hired another manager and things started improving but after about a month, they took a turn for the worse,” says Ms Mwangi. Upon investigating to establish the cause of the problem, Ms Mwangi learnt that both property managers had been irresponsible; cleaning was done irregularly, and they gave female tenants preferential treatment. “One of the students told me that pretty girls rarely ever got into trouble for playing loud music, unlike the not-so-beautiful girls and the men,” she says.

20 | The Darproperty - May 2018

But with a second project ongoing, she still needed a manager for her hostel. “This time I hired someone I trusted, and a woman for a change. She has managed the property since then and the results are remarkable,” Ms Mwangi says. GOVERNED BY LAW Ms Mwangi’s experience is not unusual. Cases of unscrupulous property managers disappearing with monthly rental collections, cutting corners to make some money on the side or mistreating tenants are common. This has led to the rise of professional property management agencies. “For landlords who are busy and have  little experience in property management, it can be disastrous to hand their assets to a third party, especially if the individual does not live up to the landlord’s expectations,” says Ms Dorothy Wanjiru, a property management agent based in Ruiru. Ms Wanjiru says that house owners should place their assets in the hands of a reputable company that knows how to go about the business and can follow up in case a tenant becomes troublesome.  “For instance, property management agencies are familiar with the prevailing market trends, so they can advise landlords on what to charge to avoid their houses remaining vacant for long,” says Ms Wanjiru, adding that it is important to screen tenants thoroughly to avoid potentially troublesome ones.

Mr Benjamin Musau, a property lawyer, says it’s paramount to understand the relationship between the landlord, property manager and the tenant. “The relationship between the three is a contractual one that comes as a result of an agreement between the landlord and the tenant. This agreement is governed by the law of contract,” he offers. He says engaging property managers without running a comprehensive background search on them is a big mistake. In cases of uncouth behaviour like demanding tips from tenants for preferential treatment, the law is clear: bribery is an offence under the Bribery Act in Chapter Six of the Constitution,” he says, adding, “A person commits the offence of giving a bribe if  the person offers, promises or gives a financial or other advantage to another person who knows or believes the acceptance of the financial or other advantage would itself constitute the improper performance of relevant function or activity.” Mr Musau says that tenants who are subjected to such treatment should not suffer in silence but should raise the issue with the landlord. And landlords with irresponsible property managers should report them to the nearest police stations since failure to do so can lead to claims for damages for breach of contract by the tenant.

REAL ESTATE The ABCs of REAL ESTATE MARKET Radius Clause: in a shopping centre tenant’s lease, a provision that prevents the tenant from opening another store within a certain distance from the shopping center, which would reduce traffic to the existing store and to the shopping center. Especially important from anchor tenant but also used for ANCILLARY TENANTS. Example: A five-mile radius clause in its lease prevented an upscale national jewelry store from opening another outlet in a nearby mall. Escape Clause: a provision in a contract that allows one or more of the parties to cancel all or part of the contract if certain events or situations do or do not happen. Example: Mary agrees to buy Joel’s house for $100,000; the CONTRACT SALE includes an escape clause that allows Mary to cancel the contract if she cannot obtain approval for a mortgage loan of $80,000 within 60 days. Listing Agreement: a written engagement CONTRACT between a principal and an AGENT, authorizing the agent to perform services for the principal involving the latter’s property. Zoning: a large mechanism for local government to regulate the use of privately owned Real Property by specific application of POLICE POWER to prevent conflicting land uses and promote orderly development. All privately owned land within the jurisdiction is placed within designated zones that limit the type and intensity of development permitted. Example: Before a TRACT of land may be development, the intended use must be permitted under the existing zoning classification. If the proposed use is not permitted, the developer must apply for an amendment to the zoning ordinance, or for rezoning. Such amendments are granted by the local government body, generally following a public hearing and recommendation from the PLANNING COMMISSION. Condominium: a system of ownership of individual units in a multiunit structure, combined with joint ownership of commonly used property (sidewalks, hallways, hallways, stairs, etc) Apartment: (Building) a dwelling unit within a multifamily structure, generally provided as rental housing. An apartment building is a structure with individual apartment units but a common entrance and hallway. Example: Apartment may vary in size from small, 1- room efficiencies to large, multibedroom units. Apartment buildings may range from a 1 – story, 4- unit building to a high- rise building with hundreds of units and retail and office space included.

Budgetary Insights to Spur Development of Real Estate


he booming of the construction sector signals that all is well with the economy while its sluggishness would suggest the opposite. By its nature, the construction sector is wide and includes activities happening in the real estate, infrastructure projects such as roads, ports etc. For the sake of today’s discussion, we will focus on activities happening in the real estate sector as well as exploring some insights on how the sector could benefit as the government recent pronouncements requiring it to contribute more in the government coffers through enhanced collections of property tax. Across the globe, the property tax forms an important source of government or rather local government revenues. In the context of Tanzania, this tax is now positioning itself as an important mainstream source of government revenue to finance the national budget that trickles down to the local government as well. While this could be something that make property owners think they will have to dig further into their pockets to settle their tax dues, I would say this is good news to the sector.

34 | The Darproperty - May 2018

Homeowners and developers should now sit down and relax as the government’s decision to elevate the property tax as part of reliable revenue sources to finance the national budget means it will now do all what it takes to develop the sector. In the end, the biggest beneficiaries of this decision by the government to levy property tax on all commercial and residential building will be existing and prospective developers and homeowners. Despite the fact that at this stage it may not be easy to establish a precise number of commercial and residential buildings in the country, the last National Census (2012) sheds light on this as it reported that there over nine million homes in the country. Out of these, not all houses will fall in the property tax net as some are located in rural area where such tax may not apply. In addition, for sure three million homes may be exempt too due to the fact that they have been built of mud and thatched by grass. Despite these mixed details on eligibility of houses for property taxes purposes, property tax is a strong and sustainable

tax base that needs to be developed to ensure it is well developed and contributes towards national development. There are various budgetary and non-budgetary initiatives that can be employed to ensure a thriving real estate sector both in rural and urban areas. Nonbudgetary measure include expediting the establishing a fully fledged institution to be charged with developing the real estate sector while budgetary measures will set aside enough resources for land development including putting the necessary roads, electricity and water infrastructure. As housing forms a key part of the real estate sector, budgetary measures to be taken should go further to support home buyers through various fiscal incentives to enhance housing affordability. Looking at the size of real estate sector in the country, one may think that the issue of having a fully fledged institution that deals with promoting the development of the sector is long overdue.

While I commend government ongoing initiatives to enact the law to that effect, I would suggest that the law being enacted should take the direction of enabling the proposed institution to be a promoter of the sector that will speed up its growth rather than regulating itby imposing additional regulatory measures on the sector. The sector is already having a number of indirect regulators influencing its activities and therefore harmonising existing and proposed regulatory measures may help to reduce both the compliance as well as the regulatory burden to sector. Buildings built on unsurveyed land not only deny owner sthe opportunity to use their properties for more economic advancement but also reduces the value of properties. This also reduces the earning potential of the government as low value properties provide a narrower tax base. Budgetary initiatives that seek to expand ongoing measures to formalize informal settlements and surveying land in urban areas and villages will work to the advantage of both citizens and the government. It is encouraging that the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Human Settlement is committed to ensuring that this happens and has actually started this noble task. The ministerial initiative announced during the FY 2017/2018 Budget Proposal to reduce the premium paid on surveyed land is a clear testimony that there is a light at the end of the tunnel indicating the cost of owning surveyed land will ultimately go down. This initiative went hand in hand with a the Presidential directive that developers should

38 | The Darproperty - May 2018

not shoulder costs of developing roads, water and electricity infrastructure as experience shows that when they incur these costs the same are recovered from sale of houses, a fact that make prices of such houses too expensive for a common man. While we commend this initiative, it is high time that funds are set aside both at national and municipal or district council level to develop roads, electricity and water infrastructure to support Greenfield development. It goes without saying that the surveying of plots alone without putting the needed infrastructure not only reduces the value of new development but also make life difficult for the people living in these areas and ultimately erodes on the future government tax base. In connection with this, it is important that the budget is also used as a tool for expansionary fiscal measures that ultimately make the housing sector reasonably vibrant. This argument is based on the importance of this sector both as a provider of homes for the people but also considering its multiple linkages with other sectors of the economy including its linkage with related industries such as the steel, cement and construction materials. Stimulating the housing sector can take different forms including providing tax incentives to people who buy homes under mortgage arrangement by exempting income tax on the amount paid as installment to service the mortgage loans. This can be done in the same manner that is done where a tax relief is provided to amount deducted for contribution to

approved pension funds by not subjecting this amount to employment income tax. In the short run, this measure will have the effect of enhancing the affordability of housing loans hence making more people able to buy homes. Consequently, this can broaden the market for housing products hence creating a vibrant housing market. The vibrancy in the housing market will increase the supply of houses and hence play an instrumental role in broadening the property tax base from where the government can get more revenue to finance its various budgetary obligations. In conclusion, as the government takes more steps to broaden its tax base , it is poised to get more in tax revenue from property taxes. Going forward, fiscal measures to enhance the affordability of housing products and efforts to establish an institution to spearhead the development of the sector need to be expedited to spur more growth of the sector and to sustain property tax as a revenue source.
