Unlawful subletting/squatting/tenancy misuse
If you think someone is unlawfully subletting, squatting, or misusing their tenancy in one of our properties, please report it via Tell Peabody.
We will not use your name in our investigations.
What is unlawful subletting?
This happens when a tenant signs a tenancy agreement with us but then doesn't live in the property.
Instead they allow someone else to live in the property - often in return for money.
What is squatting?
If someone is living in a Peabody property without permission, they may be squatting.
What is misuse of tenancy?
These can include:
- a tenant living in another property while leaving their Peabody property empty
- a tenant moving out of a Peabody property and giving the keys to someone else, without telling Peabody
- using a false identity to gain a tenancy
- someone living in a Peabody property after the death of the tenant
- someone using a Peabody property for non-residential purposes; for example as a business, or for illegal activities
