370 Kazakhstan families were provided with accommodation at the Day of the First President
Kazakhstan Mortgage Company JSC was founded in December 2000. The Company is the operator of the rental housing program for socially vulnerable citizens of the Republic of Kazakhstan, who include multiple-child and single-parent families, families having or bringing up disabled children, orphaned children, children without parental support, repatriates, public officers, military servants, employees of special state institutions, employees of budget organizations, disabled persons of the 1st and 2nd groups. The amount of monthly payments for lessees does not exceed 1,120 KZT per square meter in Almaty and Astana and 924 in the regions. Social housing is granted without the initial contribution and in 20 years it becomes the property of the lessee.
In Aktobe, the ceremony of handing over of keys was attended personally by Berdybek Saparbayev, Mayor of Aktobe region, and Adil Mukhamedzhanov, Chairman of the Board of the KMC.
“It is symbolic that the long-awaited apartments have been provided to people on the Day of the First President, as exactly the initiative of the Head of State allowed, for the moment, to provide housing to more than 9 thousand citizens of the country under the Program of Kazakhstan Mortgage Company. We are sincerely glad that today another 370 Kazakhstan’s families, residents of Aktobe and Almaty, have got their housing and have the opportunity to take advantage of the terms of the “Nurly Zhol” National Rental Housing Program,” – Adil Mukhamedzhanov said. Then he specified: - “Currently, the “Nurly Zhol” Program is under development. The role of the Kazakhstan Mortgage Company, to the extent of this program, is the mortgage lending promotion. We hope that we will manage this challenge and you will see the results as early as in the near future”.
The new houses in Aktobe are located in the promising micro-district Batys-2, designed for 60 thousand dwellers. The nine-storey house with two-room apartments was built in a record period of 8 months.
New settlers will move to their new modern finally-finished apartments in the nearest future. Domestically-manufactured construction materials were used for the construction. The developers claim that the quality of the new houses is equal to the elite housing quality.
In Almaty keys to people on the waiting list were handed at the formal event by Gulzhan Issabekova, Managing Director of the KMC.
“Today’s event accompanies the Day of the First President of Kazakhstan. We would like to wish on behalf of the Kazakhstan Mortgage Company all the best and that all the received apartments brought you happiness and many children. The Kazakhstan Mortgage Company together with “Baiterek” Holding put into operation in Almaty nearly 2 thousand apartments, today we hand over the keys from 52 apartments to dwellers,” — she noted, congratulating mortgage borrowers with the access to their own housing.
Newly-minted owners of apartments in the Akbulak micro-district of Almaty city did not hide their happiness. Aizhan Orazbayeva, one of the lucky people, shared her feelings:
“Earlier I and my children lived at my parent’s home. But now, thanks to .the Housing Department of Almaty city, KMC JSC and, of course, to Nursultan Nazarbayev, I got my own apartment. I am especially glad that it happened on the eve of the First President’s Day and the 25-th Anniversary of Independence of Kazakhstan. My son finishes the fourth form, and nearby there is a good school – lyceum no.178. I am planning to transfer the child there after the move. I am very glad, my dream has come true. Thanks a lot.”
Such a gift to the holiday turned to be pleasant and long-awaited for a young family of three people, as said Astai Ayarbek, the head of the family:
“In 2013 we registered for the waiting list and now, three years later we have received the apartment. I would like to express on behalf of our family our deep gratitude to President Nursultan Nazarbayev for the “Nurly Zhol” Rental Housing Program, as well as to the Kazakhstan Mortgage Company that uninterruptedly provides Kazakhstan families with housing.”
The Akbulak micro-district, where houses are built under the state program, has a well-developed infrastructure: it includes a mixed Kazakh-Russian school and a Kazakh lyceum, a state nursery and kindergarten and private kindergartens, a functioning polyclinic, the new cinema and concert hall “Alatau”, shops and a supermarket. The district is actively built, construction of the ice arena and the Olympic Village is carried out nearby.
Since 2015, more than 900 Aktobe and about 2,000 Almaty families have received rental housing with a purchase option. Before the end of 2016 the Kazakhstan Mortgage Company plans to put into operation another 391 apartments in Aktobe and Almaty – 260 finally-finished apartments. In total, 1.4 mln sq.m of rental housing will be put into operation for our compatriots within the rental housing program implementation.
