Housing fraud costs the tax payer around £1.8 million a year nationally. It includes:
- sub-letting a council house
- not living in a council house and leaving it empty
- making a fraudulent Right to Buy application
- providing false or misleading information to get a council house.
This deprives people in genuine need of affordable homes.
