Tackling Tenancy Fraud
Tenancy fraud is on the rise.
Illegal subletting, abandoned homes, and wrongly claimed discounts and successions are just some of the more common scams that we encounter on a day-to-day basis.
To help combat situations such as this, we have teamed up the social landlords from around the region to found a new group dedicated to cracking down on fraud. Called the Mercian Tenancy Fraud Forum, they share experience and knowledge to help find the best possible way to stop fraud happening.
Housing tenancy fraud is not a victimless crime – it stops homes being let to those in need, disrupts local communities, and costs money that could be re-invested into local communities.
If you see or hear anything suspicious, please get in touch.
We need you to help us to stamp it out.
