When tenancy fraud is identified, the Trust will take appropriate and necessary action to recover the property.
What is tenancy fraud?

- 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.
