Our Social Housing Fraud team help detect fraudsters who illegally occupy or sub-let council housing and housing association flats and houses.
This could mean:
- Sub-letting the whole home to a single household or more than one household
- A tenant who holds a tenancy for one address but lives somewhere else
- Wrongly claiming a right to ‘succession’ (retention of a tenancy following the death or departure of the tenant)
- 'Key selling' (leaving a property and passing the keys to someone in return for a one-off lump sum or favour)
- Obtaining a tenancy by making false claims about identity or circumstances
If you suspect tenancy abuse, you can report it by filling in our Reporting Housing Fraud e- Form. Your report will be treated in the strictest confidence and can be given anonymously.
