The Housing Management team at ‘Your Waverley has welcomed a new Anti-Social Behaviour Officer.
The council’s housing fraud investigation work during the quarter resulted in six properties being recovered from tenants who were not using the properties according to their tenancy terms and conditions.
Five of these properties were a result of action taken by the council as the tenants were not living at the properties. The remaining property had been sublet to others whilst the tenant was residing abroad.
This work has successfully enabled six households on the housing register to be allocated a home to live in.
A spokesman said:
“This work reinforces Waverley’s stance that our properties should be used per our tenancy terms and conditions. The support from our tenants is paramount in ensuring that this is achieved. Tenants are asked to raise any concerns they may have relating to housing tenancy fraud at… https://www.waverley.gov.uk/Services/Pay-Report-Apply/Report-it/Reportcouncil-housing-fraud.
One thought on “Watch out – there’s a new Waverley Anti-Social Behaviour Officer about!”
Good news that someone is paying attention to fraud, which due the indifference of too many regulators has spun of control. That someone can sublet whilst living abroad beggars belief nearly as bad as having your benefits paid into a Syrian bank. – Seasons greetings hopefully 2023 will be an improvement on 2022.
