It is estimated that between 2-7% of housing association or council homes are occupied someone who shouldn’t be living there. That’s just over 300 of our homes which may be occupied by people who don’t have a genuine tenancy.
Tenancy fraud is a big problem across the UK and is preventing people who are in genuine need of an affordable home from being housed. Hertfordshire has a huge housing shortage, with 237 families in Broxbourne living in temporary accommodation.
What is Tenancy Fraud?
It is the unlawful occupation of social housing and there are many ways it can be committed;
Non-occupation – where the legal occupier is not living in the property and/or is not using the property as their sole 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
Wrongly claimed succession – where a tenant dies and someone who is not entitled tries to take over or succeed the tenancy
What can you do about it?
Hand your keys back if you know you are illegally living at your address or if you are committing any other types of tenancy fraud listed.
