Housing - Report suspected housing fraud

Introduction

If you suspect that someone is committing housing fraud, such as illegally subletting their council home, we would like to know about it.

Illegally subletting a council home is a criminal offence. Most people applying for housing wait their turn to be allocated a home. Housing cheats don’t wait, they jump the queue.

If you suspect someone is illegally subletting or wrongly claiming a tenancy please complete this online referral form with as much detail as you have available. Your help is needed and could make a real difference.

Have they got a house the council doesn't know about?

Did they give false information in their housing application form?

Have you seen them collect rent from neighbours?

Do the tenants of the property keep changing?

Your report will be treated in the strictest confidence and can be given anonymously.
