Illegal subletting

Sub-letting social housing properties without permission is a criminal offence. Know the facts.

If you suspect a Charlton Triangle Homes property has been illegally sub-let, please contact us

If you're a Charlton Triangle resident and illegally sub-letting your home, this is tenancy fraud, a breach of your tenancy agreement, and a criminal offence.


Tenancy fraud happens when:

  • tenants illegally sub-let their Charlton Triangle home to someone, without permission. Renters are often charged high rents, so tenants make money from a property they don’t need.
  • tenants don’t use their Charlton Triangle 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 become a tenant by succession. This is where someone tries to take over a tenancy after a close relative dies, by pretending they’ve been living in the property for the previous 12 months or longer.
