Like local authorities, housing associations strive to eliminate tenancy fraud in their stock. The Federation welcomes the Government’s interest in the subject and its willingness to support social landlords in addressing it. We agree with the thrust of the proposals and specifically with the creation of a new criminal offence. However, we have a number of reservations on specific points and these are explained in our detailed response.
