Housing Fraud Investigations

Housing associations are available in many places to help those in need of finding a home for their family. Even so, many run rampant with complaints about bad tenants, illegal tenancy fraud, and all the while trying to keep up with the increasing demand for housing.

Nationwide Legal Investigations and Marc J. Tropeano PI and his team of private investigators can assist many of these associations or tenants by compiling evidence they need to remove tenants that have breached their terms of agreement for the housing they occupy or unlivable conditions. Whether the problem is illegal subletting, tenancy fraud, or a significant cause of property damage, a private investigator can pave the way for getting you the information you need.

Things a Private Investigator Can Help With:

Housing fraud can take different forms, and sometimes a housing association or even a landlord can have a hard time gaining the proof they need to get rid of unruly tenants. That is where a private investigator comes in. Here are some ways an investigator can help:

  • Misrepresentation of Identity
  • Non-Occupation
  • Non-qualifying tenancy
  • Property damage
  • Social housing fraud
  • Illegal subletting
  • Right-to-buy fraud

Subletting Without Consent:

If you are a private landlord or housing association, you will need verification on what the tenant in question is possibly doing. A private investigator can assist in this process. They can find out if the tenant is:

  • Illegally subletting the space
  • Confirm any anti-social or behavior complaints
  • Confirm the identity of the tenant in question

An investigator can use surveillance or an undercover operation to give you a better idea of what is happening on your property. Private Investigators are trained to recognize the signs of illegal subletting. They’ll be able to tell when the access was given to the subletter and to who the initial blame goes. Private Investigators will gather the information through their housing investigation. With this information, you’ll have more evidence at your disposal if you need to seek civil or legal outlets to remove the tenant if required. 

A Private Investigator has the proper skillsets and resources to investigate housing fraud of any type. With the experience that comes from police, military, college, or even individual security firms, an investigator will be able to check backgrounds thoroughly and bring their expertise to work on your case. They will also work within the confines of the law and work with private and corporate clients to help settle many housing fraud issues. 

A private investigator will work discreetly and in strict confidence on your housing fraud investigation. They understand that your property is an essential asset and that leaving it in the hands of the wrong people can prove devastating to the property and your business and finances. While you want that perfect tenant or a house to go to the right family in need, some will abuse the system or take advantage of it. A private investigator can help you get the information you need to make the right choice and rest assured in your decision.
