Illegal sub-letters have been given until July by A2Dominion Housing Group to hand over their keys in an amnesty announced today.
The ‘tenancy cheats’ have been compounding the problem that has been denying families who need homes the chance to move into an appropriate property.
Those who don’t comply by the end of the amnesty will lose their tenancy or even their right to social housing.
A2Dominions’s North Area Director for housing services, Laurinda Hornblow explains more – “Housing cheats jump the queue to deprive families in need of a home and they cost local councils, housing associations and residents of local communities a lot of money.
“On average, we deal with 10 to 12 incidents of housing fraud per year. We believe this is just the tip of the iceberg and intend to increase the number of housing fraud cases we deal with by running this campaign.”
Housing fraud is costing taxpayers £5billion a year from the estimated 50,000 cases nationwide. A2Domionion are working with local services to tackle the problems.
“We are committed to tackling housing fraud and urge anyone who is unlawfully subletting a property to come forward as soon as possible” said A2Dominion.
