The PIMS Tenancy Agreement complies with the Tenant Fees Ban June 2019
A tenant attempted to con a council when trying to purchase a property and saying he was entitled to a massive discount of £100,000.
Lambeth Council’s case against the tenant was heard at Blackfriars Crown Court and he was “slapped” with a fine of nearly eleven thousand pounds ( £10,921) and eighty hours unpaid community work to be completed. The tenant was found guilty of lying on a Right to Buy application.
“I hope this send a very clear message to people who think they can get away with this sort of appalling behaviour.”
The tenant was found guilty of two counts of fraud, he failed to tell the council that he was not residing in the property that he was trying to purchase. The second was for supplying false information when claiming his Right to Buy scheme’s massive discount.
Councillor Bennett finished by applauding the council’s actions: “This is another excellent example of the work of Lambeth’s Fraud Team and underlines the council’s commitment to come down hard on cheats and frauds.”

An application to seek permission can be made either at the time of making the possession claim or after possession has been ordered.
