How to get affordable housing in Kazakhstan: 7-20-25, Baqytty Otbasy and Askeri Baspana

Thursday, 07 November 2019, 18:55:56

Over the years of independence, 141 million square meters of housing have been commissioned in Kazakhstan. The state is developing a unified model of housing development throughout the country, where the main principle is to increase the affordability of housing, especially for socially sensitive segments of the population. The first President of Kazakhstan – Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev, in order to improve the living conditions of the population and create affordable opportunities, initiated the introduction of new mortgage lending programs, which further increased the availability of housing mortgages.

Nurly Zher State Program combines new mechanisms to support housing construction. In 2018, the 7-20-25 program was launched, which over the course of 5 years should help 650 thousand families or more than 2 million citizens to acquire their own houses. In 2019, at the initiative of Elbasy, a new program called “Baqytty Otbasy” was launched with a preferential rate of 2% and an initial payment of 10%. By the end of the year, at least 6 thousand families will purchase housing under this program. First of all, large families and families raising children with disabilities. From 2020, 10 thousand such families will be provided with housing annually.

In the Address to the people of Kazakhstan “Constructive Public Dialogue – the Basis of Stability and Prosperity of Kazakhstan,” the Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev instructed to develop a unified housing policy that will correspond to different levels of family income. Within three years, it is necessary to solve the issue of providing housing to low-income large families in the waiting lists. At the same time, citizens who do not have enough income to purchase their own property should be given the opportunity to live on a social lease.

For these purposes, the state will allocate more than 240 billion tenge by 2022. By the end of the year, the government has been instructed to create a unified national accounting system for waiting lists for rental housing, as well as to receive preferential housing loans under the Baqytty Otbasy program.

The waiting is expanding annually by 50 thousand people, with the introduction of social housing for 20 thousand families. In this regard, the Nurly Zher program provides for the introduction of a graduation system for providing housing to citizens, depending on their capabilities and status. For example, rental housing without redemption will be provided to those in the waiting lists who have no income or have income below the subsistence level per family member (29.7 thousand tenge).

Baqytty Otbasy will be available to those in the waiting list whose income does not exceed a 2-fold subsistence level (59.4 thousand tenge) for each family member.

Loan housing from the local executive bodies will be sold to people on a waiting list with income per family member from two times to 3.1 times the subsistence level of living (92 thousand tenge).

Citizens with incomes exceeding 3.1 times the subsistence level will be able to use the tools of the programs 7-20-25, Baspana Hit, Orda from JSC IO KIK, Svoy Dom from JSC Housing Construction Savings Bank.

These approaches will ensure targeted state support and increase the efficiency of housing construction planning.

 

In 7 Years, Waiting Lists for Housing in Akimats of Cities and Regions Increased by 3.5 Times

The Baiterek Holding plays a systemic role in taking large-scale measures to build affordable housing for the general population, as it is the only operator in the implementation of the Nurly Zher state housing program.

For example, akimats, due to funding received through the mechanism of issuing their bonds, ensure the construction and sale of credit housing at fixed prices.

This mechanism allows you to wrap funds according to the “revolving” principle every 2 years and re-direct them to new construction without additional allocation of resources. Annually, 100-110 billion tenge are turned in this system, which allows akimats to ensure the commissioning of 12 thousand loan housing.

Housing Construction Savings Bank, in turn, stimulates demand and implementation of housing built by akimats by issuing preferential housing loans to the population at 5% per annum. The down payment is at least 20% with the possibility of using housing certificates. To date, the bank system has 1.46 million contracts with an accumulation amount of 716.7 billion tenge. Over the entire period of activity, over 208 thousand loans worth 1.52 trillion tenge were issued, of which 18.3 thousand loans worth 139 billion tenge were issued over the period of the implementation of the Nurly Zher state program.

Since 2005, the level of housing provision has increased by 23% and amounted to 21.6 m² per 1 person. On behalf of Elbasy, it is necessary by 2030 to bring this indicator to UN standards - 30 m² per 1 person. On average, taking into account changes in the population, it is required to increase the housing stock by 66% by 2030 compared with its current value. For this it is necessary to maintain the pace of annual commissioning of new housing at the level of 8-10%.

There is an interesting trend: the more the state builds social housing, the larger the queue becomes.

Today, the waiting lists in akimats have increased by 3.5 times (as of Jan. 1, 2012 — 147 thousand, as of July 1, 2019, — 512 thousand people). This is due to demographic processes, urbanization and labor migration.

On average, demand grows annually by 50 thousand people with the supply of social housing for about 20 thousand families.

According to forecast estimates, an accelerated reduction in priority over the next 10 years will require about 6 trillion tenge, which will provide 552 thousand people with housing. In this case, the funds are repayable.

To do this, a ladder of housing affordability is built depending on the income of the waiting list, taking into account the cost of living.

In the first direction, waiting lists that do not have income or have an income per family member below 1 living wage will be provided rental housing without redemption.

In the second direction, waiting lists with incomes per family member up to 2 times the subsistence level will be offered soft loans at 2% per annum, for a period of 25 years, with an initial payment of 10% (2-10-25).

In the third direction, waiting lists with incomes up to 3.1 living wages per family member, akimat credit housing at 5% per annum, for a period of 25 years, with an initial payment of 20% (5-20-25).

In the fourth direction, citizens with incomes exceeding 3.1 living wages per family member will be able to take advantage of soft loans at 7% per annum, for a period of 25 years, with an initial payment of 20% ("7-20-25") and market products (Baspana-Hit, KIK-Orda, Your Home HCSB).

These approaches will ensure targeted state support and efficient use of funds.

In June 2019, a separate program “Rental Housing for Teachers and Doctors” was launched. The source of financing is the income of Kazakhstanis and market attraction of resources. Due to mixing of funds and reduction of operating expenses, it is planned to allocate up to 40 billion tenge for this product in the next 2 years. This will provide about 3 thousand doctors and teachers across the country. In this case, the rental rate on a monthly payment will be 3.1% per annum.

Thus, as of Oct. 1, 2019, the waiting lists in akimats included 526 thousand people, which is 3.5 times more than the same indicator in 2012. At the same time, the main share — 44% is socially vulnerable segments of the population and 42% are government employees, employees of budget organizations and military personnel.

How Digital Technology Affects Housing?

In June 2018, Baiterek Holding launched an Internet portal for monitoring facilities funded by the Nurly Zher state program and its own Situation Center. The portal is intended for local executive bodies that post electronic information on the progress of construction of residential facilities in the regions. All this data is visualized in the interactive Situation Center in real time. These solutions allow remote monitoring of all facilities under construction using video cameras, drones and other technologies. Smart cameras with high accuracy recognize the equipment at the facilities, the stages of construction and the movement of labor. Now you can track the development of allocated funds and develop appropriate solutions based on data analysis.

Today, the electronic database includes about 300 facilities under construction, each of which has detailed information.

A special mobile application has been created for representatives of technical supervision, which allows you to download data from the phone while on the construction site.

The discipline of filling is reflected in the schedules of production work, you can see how many times the representative of technical supervision was at the facility.

In addition, on the example of this project, you can see how digitalization saves resources. The previous construction monitoring format required 8 working hours per week to collect information and another 8 hours to compile and analyze our experts.

The new portal reduces this time by 8 times. Today it takes only 1 hour to receive information and 1 hour to process it. The digital monitoring format will annually save about 30 million tenge of the holding budget.

There are great opportunities to reduce the cost of housing and infrastructure through the use of the so-called "Online Marketplace," which on their platform will be able to directly connect customers and suppliers without intermediaries.

The holding has already begun work in this direction. This will reduce operating costs for all parties by an average of 20%.

At the same time, the introduction of a system of long-term offtake-contracts at fixed prices will make it possible to ensure workload of house-building plants and domestic manufacturers of building materials.

Marketplaces should be as open as possible and provide the full amount of information that simply neutralizes unscrupulous suppliers.

Given that the share of building materials in the cost of construction is more than 55%, the construction price per 1 m² of housing can be reduced by an average of 10%.

Similar platforms need to be created for the real estate market, where the population, commercial banks, developers, private developers and government agencies will also be able to unite on a single platform and provide their services.

Since August 2017, the Baspana.kz real estate Internet portal has been launched through the Housing Construction Savings Bank, which has unified all HCSB clients, construction companies and government agencies on its platform.

Now Kazakhstanis can remotely receive online advice on the terms of the Nurly Zher state program, information on finished and under construction objects, cost per square meter and bank products.

The portal has already registered more than 153 thousand users, posted 356 objects under the state program Nurly Zher.

In total, over 222 thousand applications for participation in the pool of home buyers were submitted through the online platform, more than 17 thousand apartments were sold to the population at fixed prices, the total amount of 155 billion tenge. About 29 thousand apartments worth 277 billion tenge are under implementation.

With the expansion of the IT services line and the introduction of Smart Home system elements, the scale of the affordable housing ecosystem will increase significantly.

For example, the full-fledged introduction of the Unified Housing and Utilities Information System “E-SHANYRAQ” will allow residents to participate in managing the home online, ensuring transparency and monitoring of the targeted use of funds by management companies.

Residents in real time will be able to verify the accuracy of billing based on meter readings and approved rates. The installation of smart metering devices will reduce the cost of services by an average of 35%.

Thus, the full-scale digitalization of the construction industry, the use of SMART-technologies and the widespread availability of communications are some of the key factors on the basis of which the Ecosystem of affordable housing is formed, which, in turn, stimulates related industries.

Ultimately, this will facilitate productive employment, job creation and equal access for the population to economic and productive resources and opportunities.

 

What You Need to Know about Shared Construction?

For private developers, the main issue in housing construction is affordable financing.

Today, one of the key problems in housing construction is "expensive" funding for developers and the requirement for a secured collateral base from commercial banks.

If in 2009 the share of construction in the portfolio of banks amounted to more than 20%, today this figure has decreased by 3 times and does not exceed 7%.

Baiterek Holding as a financial operator has the ability to attract market resources, mix with current financial flows and reduce the cost of funding for private developers without any “intermediaries”.

It is possible to support construction companies through subsidizing and guaranteeing credit resources.

For example, through subsidizing loans to developers, the Damu Fund supported 87 projects totaling 91.6 billion tenge. This made it possible to reduce the cost of market loans for construction companies by 50%.

In addition, a new mechanism for guaranteeing shared housing construction through the Federal Housing Fund (Housing Guarantee Fund) allows bona fide private developers to raise public funds at 0%.

For citizens who want to purchase housing on the commercial market at the expense of their own or borrowed funds, guarantees are provided for the completion of shared construction. First of all, it is aimed at safeguarding citizens' funds and protecting against unscrupulous developers. To do this, in 2016, a new Law on shared participation in housing was adopted.

Under the Law, raising funds from the population for shared construction is allowed only with the permission of the akimat or the guarantee of our subsidiary, the Housing Construction Guarantee Fund.

If the construction company received a guarantee of the Fund, this information will be posted on the website www.hgf.kz. Today, projects totaling 137.9 billion tenge have already been approved. This made it possible to protect household deposits for the purchase of over 9.8 thousand apartments in the commercial market.

If there is no such guarantee, then the developer must have the permission of the akimat to raise funds from shareholders, this information must be clarified in the relevant akimat. This must be done without fail, otherwise all responsibility and all risks fall on the shareholder.

By the way, according to the law, a developer can get permission from the Akimat to attract funds from equity holders only in two cases: if he erected a building frame at his own expense, which is 40-60% of the total project cost or if he received bank financing.

If the developer does not show the guarantee of the fund, and the akimat declares that the relevant permission has not been issued for this object, we advise you not to take the risk by investing money. It will be more correct to apply to law enforcement agencies.
