Housing fraud

What is housing fraud?

The most common cases of housing fraud are:

  • Using false information to obtain housing
  • Renting a Council or Housing Association home to someone else, sometimes known as subletting
  • Living in a property you shouldn’t be living in
  • Not living in a property you claim to be living in
