EAST Devon District Council calling on residents to help support a nationwide campaign to stop housing cheats – and report culprits.
EAST Devon District Council calling on residents to help support a nationwide campaign to stop housing cheats - and report culprits.
Housing officers are working hard to track down housing cheats, who use up valuable housing spaces which deprive those in greater need.
Members of the public can help because they can see what is going on in their neighbourhoods and can call EDDC.
The three most common types of housing fraud are: unlawful subletting - when a tenant lets out their council home without the knowledge or permission of their landlord; obtaining housing y deception - when a person gets a council home by giving false information in their application, for example not telling the landlord they are renting another council property elsewhere; and wrongly claimed succession - when someone, who is not entitled, tries to take over the tenancy from someone who has died.
