Benefit and housing fraud
How we deal with benefit or housing fraud in Aldershot and Farnborough.
When you make a claim for housing or council tax support, you have certain responsibilities for the lifetime of that claim.
You can report suspected benefit fraud online, anonymously through our benefit fraud hotline or by contacting our benefits team.
Giving false information and failing to tell us of a change in your circumstances are the most common types of fraud.
If we are satisfied that there are grounds for legal proceedings, we will consider prosecuting in court, a financial penalty or a formal caution.
If you dishonestly get more benefit than you are entitled to, you are committing a criminal offence. It is our policy to prosecute offenders.
Help us stop housing cheats by reporting housing fraud.
