Subletting and tenancy fraud

Subletting and tenancy fraud

What is tenancy fraud?

There are different types of tenancy fraud, including:

  • Non-occupation - where the legal occupier is not living in the property and/or is not using the property as their role or principal home.
  • Subletting - where a tenant lets the whole or part of the property without consent and for financial gain.
  • Application fraud - Providing false or misleading information, which includes making a fraudulent application for housing, a fraudulent Right to Buy or Right to Acquire application.
  • Key-Selling - where a resident is paid a one-off fee to hand over their keys.
