Enfield has recovered 120 illegally sublet properties

Enfield Council has announced it is one of the 62 councils given a government grant to step up its efforts against social housing fraud.
The Counter Fraud Team will receive £200,000, the maximum amount of money available, over the next two years.

In May 2010 the council set up a small team called the Housing Investigation Team which has been working in conjunction with Enfield Homes and local housing associations to tackle housing fraud and the unlawful subletting of properties.

The team has been conducting tenancy audits and investigating allegations of housing fraud, and to date they have carried out over 700 visits and tenancy audits, conducted 380 investigations, and recovered 120 properties which have been illegally sublet.
