Report Tenancy Fraud

Report Tenancy Fraud to GCH. It is illegal and unfair because it means that there are fewer homes for those in need and who have been waiting for them.

There are lots of different kinds of tenancy fraud, including:

  • Sub-letting or parting with possession
    When a tenant rents out all or part of their home without our permission.
  • Non-occupation or abandonment
    When a tenant uses their home for a business or unlawfully lets it out instead of living in it.
  • Unlawful assignment
    When someone stops using their property as their main and principal home, but leaves someone else in occupation. This could be a parent moving out and leaving a friend or family member living there; or if the tenant dies and someone else keeps living there without telling us.
  • Key selling
    When a tenant moves out and sells their key to someone else.
  • False application
    When a tenant knowingly gives us false information when applying for a home.
  • Abandoning the property
    When a tenant stops living at their home and leaves it, but does so without telling us.
  • Keeping a social rented home when you own another property.
