Tenancy fraud policy

Data Sharing and Matching

WHBC shares relevant information with third parties for the purposes of preventing, investigating and tackling tenancy fraud.

When sharing personal information we will comply with all aspects of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018. The council's GDPR privacy notices can be found on the council's website at www.welhat.gov.uk

WHBC will participate in data matching exercises with the National Fraud Initiative and other parties, where relevant to detect possible cases of fraud. Data matching refers to the process where a provider compares the data they hold on a tenant to data held by another organisation. This data includes such as their address history, or where a claim for benefits has been made at a property which is not their social rented home.
