What counts as housing fraud

Housing fraud includes:

  • not telling the truth when applying for a property, for example saying you have children when you don't
  • subletting a property without permission
  • living in a property after someone has died without the right to do so

Anyone caught committing housing fraud is likely to lose their tenancy and may be fined or sent to prison.
