Do you know anyone illegally subletting their home?
There are thousands of people, including many families, on waiting lists for affordable housing. If you suspect a Peabody property is illegally sublet, please contact us – anonymously if you prefer – via the form below. Or email email@example.com.
If you're a Peabody resident and illegally subletting your home, this is tenancy fraud, a breach of tenancy agreement, and against the law.
Report illegal subletting
Tenancy fraud is committed when:
- Tenants illegally rent their Peabody home to someone else
The renters are often charged high rents, which means tenants are making money from a property they don’t need
- Tenants don’t use their Peabody home as their main and principal home
Often the tenant is living elsewhere and leaves the property empty or lets family or friends stay in it
- Fraudulent applications are made to succeed to a tenancy
This is where someone tries to succeed to a tenancy after a close relative dies, by pretending they have been resident in the property for the previous 12 months or longer
