Policy Tenancy Anti-Fraud Policy

Show all parts of this policy

5. Responsibility

All housing staff have a responsibility to report suspected cases of tenancy fraud. The Estate Management Officers will be responsible for referring cases of suspected tenancy fraud to the investigators at DSHFF and working with them to provide evidence.

The Council will work closely with the fraud investigators but final decisions on the appropriate sanction(s) will be the responsibility of the service lead for Housing and the Council’s legal department who will ultimately action the sanction.  

The service lead for Housing is responsible for implementing this policy and for ensuring that all housing staff are aware of and trained in this policy and its procedures.
