What is tenancy fraud?

Not using the property as your sole home, including:

  • Abandoning the property.
  • Succeeding to or assigning the tenancy, without the landlords permission, after the legal tenant has moved out or died.
  • Unlawfully subletting the entire property.

Other examples include:

  • Attempting to obtain a property using false statements, for example, falsely claiming to be homeless.
  • Attempting to obtain a property by using false documents, for example: Using a forged passport or claiming to be someone else in order to access social housing.
  • Failing to disclose a debt owed to a previous landlord.
