There is a serious housing shortage across the country which has led to a substantial increase in private rent levels. As a result, it is becoming increasingly common for a number of frauds to be perpetrated against those who are seeking housing by social landlord tenants and others. We hope the advice below will help you stay safe and give you the tools to avoid being scammed.
Remember, fraud is a criminal offence and if you think you think that you have been defrauded, then you must report the matter to the Police. If you have been conned by a social landlord tenant please contact us. We can then make sure the housing association or council are made aware and take appropriate action.
