Tenancy fraud

Tenancy fraud - which can include unlawful subletting, obtaining housing by deception, unlawful succession or non-residence - can deprive honest people of a home and cost taxpayers money. 

Every day, members of the public help us by reporting their concerns. You can help too:

Alternatively you can call our local confidential free fraud hotline on 0800 328 0572 at any time.

If you are found guilty of tenancy fraud, you can be imprisoned and must repay any money made from it, plus a fine. You will also permanently lose your security of tenure, meaning your property will be repossessed.
