Tender for State Properties
SLA-managed properties, comprising mainly premises previously used for schools, community centres and camps, are generally available for rental through an open tender. Agent-managed properties, mainly residential and commercial, can be rented directly from the agents.
The tenure for State properties varies. Some are rented out through tenancies where the tenure depends on the development time-frame for the properties, while others are rented out through Temporary Occupation Licenses (TOLs). TOLs either cover a fixed short term or are renewable on a monthly or yearly basis.
