Tackling housing fraud in Regent's Park

Westminster City Council has set up a specialist team tasked with tackling abuses of short-term letting with over 1,500 properties in Westminster under investigation. Over the summer our Conservative Council successfully took legal action against a City Council tenant who had been illegally renting his Council property and was ordered to pay over £100,000 after losing a court case.

In 2018 alone, action by the Conservative Council resulted in 24 social housing properties being successfully recovered from illegal subletting - including one here in Regent’s Park ward where the tenant was receiving over £1,100 per calendar month while living in Swansea. If you have any concerns regarding fraud, please contact the fraud hotline 020 7361 2777 or by email.
