Report social housing fraud

Social housing fraud is the use of social housing by someone not entitled to occupy that home.

Plymouth doesn't have enough social housing to meet the requirements of people who genuinely need it. People waiting for social housing will have to wait even longer if homes continue to be occupied by people who have no right to be there.

Common types of fraud are:

  • Unauthorised sub letting
  • Using false information to gain a tenancy
  • Wrongly claimed succession
  • Key selling
  • Non residence
