Housing and tenancy fraud

Housing fraud is a crime and deprives people in genuine need of a home.

Tenancy fraud includes:

  • Moving out of social housing and renting it to someone else (sub-letting).
  • Moving out of social housing and leaving it empty.
  • Obtaining social housing through deception, by making a fraudulent application.
  • Fraudulent applications to obtain rights to remain in a property, after the current tenant dies.
  • Illegally assigning a social housing application to someone else.
  • Taking (or making) a payment for a mutual exchange.

Anyone with information or suspicions about tenancy fraud can call Tandridge District Council on 01883 732993, or e-mail
