23 January: Tenancy fraudsters shown the door

Partnership work brings one hundred and eleven homes back into use for residents who are in real need.

The ‘Cut the Queue’ project, launched in August 2011, proactively tackles tenancy fraud by sending Council investigation officers to target estates where tenancy fraud may be taking place. The Council officers carry out background checks and then work with our tenancy enforcement officers, to investigate potential cases of fraud.

Our tenancy and gas safety officers have been trained by the Council’s Cut the queue team to identify where tenancy fraud may be taking place so that we can take action against these fraudsters.

Terry Gallagher, Lambeth London Living Deputy Chief Executive said “We (Lambeth London Living and Lambeth Council) are committed to tackling tenancy fraud; this partnership work is helping us do that.”

If you suspect that one of our tenants is subletting their property report it to the fraud hotline on 020 7926 1111 or report it online.
