Report illegal subletting

Tenancy fraud is committed when: 

  • Tenants illegally sublet their Peabody Group home to someone else without permission
    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 Group 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
