We adopt a zero tolerance approach to fraud. If you suspect someone is committing fraud, please report this by using one of the below methods.
Types of tenancy fraud include:
Unlawful subletting - Where a tenant rents out their home without the knowledge or permission of the landlord.
Wrongly claimed succession - Where the resident dies and someone tries to succeed the tenancy which they are not entitled to.
False right to buy/right to acquire - Where a tenant makes a Right to Buy or Right to Acquire application and provides false information.
Key selling - Where a resident is paid to pass on their keys in return for payment.
Unlawful assignment - Where a tenant stops using their tenancy as their main home and allows another person to live there without permission from Livin Housing.
Obtaining housing by deception - Where a person gets a home by providing false information on their housing application.
Abandonment – Abandoning the property without Livin’s knowledge and without completing the correct tenancy termination forms.
