|66 per cent of consumers believe illegal claiming of housing benefit 'is a big problem'|
|Thursday, 14 May 2015|
As a new Conservative government takes charge, tenancy fraud is
highlighted as a big problem across the UK with the illegal claiming of
housing benefit seen as the biggest problem of all, according to latest
findings from Callcredit Information Group.
It has been estimated that tenancy fraud currently costs councils across the UK £1.8 billion each year. The independent research undertaken by YouGov looked into the types of housing fraud that were seen as the biggest problem by the public and if the money could be recovered what councils should spend it on. Interestingly respondents across all age groups and regions prioritised affordable housing (50 per cent) as the area to spend recovered money, indicating a united view that more needs to be done to help solve the housing crisis.
