Home Office praise DAP counter fraud staff

I wanted to thank you for making contact with us regarding the concerns surrounding **** when **** made an application for Housing support. This enabled us to act upon the information provided to locate **** and **** who were both known to the Home Office and were not complying with restrictions placed upon them. As a result of us visiting the address and speaking to them we have now re initiated contact with them which will help the Home Office progress their case.

From the information provided we have been able to serve the landlord with a potential civil penalty for renting the room out to **** and ****. We have also been able to serve a potential fine on **** employer for employing a person with no right to work in the UK. This fine can be up to £20,000. All of the evidence we collected has now been submitted to our Civil penalties team who will now review it all and consider whether civil penalties will be issued. It is refreshing to see such cross-agency collaboration.
