Council tenant services

Key amnesty

Between Monday 8 November and Friday 17 December, we are running a key amnesty to give anyone who is potentially committing tenancy fraud an opportunity to avoid prosecution or legal action by returning their council property keys to us.

Examples of council housing being used illegally

If you have the keys to a council property and any of the following apply, you could be committing tenancy fraud:

  • illegally subletting to other people to make money 
  • fraudulent right to buy 
  • lying about your tenancy agreement and housing application 
  • not disclosing changes to your circumstances 
  • failing to declare that you no longer live in your council property.  

Hand in your keys to the council property 

Between Monday 8 November and Friday 17 December, hand in your keys at the main reception at the Civic Centre, High Street, Uxbridge, UB8 1UW, during the hours of 8.30am to 5pm.

When you hand in your keys, we will need to take a few details and will ask you to complete a short form.

We will then terminate your tenancy and begin the process of allocating the property to the most in need of a home.
