Tackling Tenancy Fraud

Tenancy fraud is unfair to those who are in need of social housing. It’s also illegal.

We are committed to tackling tenancy fraud. We want to make the best use of our homes. We want to ensure that our housing is being occupied by those who are legally entitled to do so.

We take tenancy fraud very seriously. We will take action to regain possession where we find evidence of tenancy fraud.

Report tenancy fraud

PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT accept anonymous complaints. We require a full name, address and contact details from the person reporting the fraud. 

Benefit fraud

We do not investigate benefit fraud. You should report this to the Department for Work and Pensions who will investigate.
