Tenancy fraud amnesty


43.1    The amnesty was focused on people who were subletting their council home or lived elsewhere but still kept their home. The last tenancy amnesty led to six properties being handed back. 12 Homes had already been handed back in 2018 and it was hoped this would rise to 18.


43.2    In response to questions officers clarified that renting out a room was allowed in a secure tenancy as long as the tenant was still living at the property as well and that renting out a room to foreign students for a few weeks at a time was not an issue.


43.3    Resolved: That the Panel noted the report
