Report an Illegal Mutual Exchange/Subletting
An Illegal Mutual Exchange is when social housing tenants swap their properties without the written consent of their landlord and occupy property without signing a Tenancy Agreement with the landlord of the property. Tenants who do this are in breach of their Conditions of Tenancy and may face action that will result in the loss of their existing tenancy and removal from the property they illegally occupy.
Illegal Subletting is where a tenant sublets part of or the whole of their property without obtaining the written permission of the landlord. Tenants have the right by law to sublet a part of their property but must obtain the written permission of their landlord before doing so.
