Tenancy fraud is when people are living in our homes without the right to do so.
It is against the law and a breach of our tenancy agreement. It also denies homes to those most in need.
The different types of tenancy fraud
- Abandonment - If tenants have abandoned their property without notification, it is in breach of tenancy.
- Housing by deception - where a person gets a home by giving false information on their housing application.
- Subletting/illegal occupation - where a tenant rents out their home without our knowledge or permission.
