​​​Tenancy ID and Application Screening

All tenants must be identity checked, but how do you know they are who they say they are?
 
Quickly bulk screen applicants to verify they are who they say they are before the tenancy life cycle begins.
 
Our fast and accurate tenant identity checks can be performed with in-situ tenants or at point of application for new tenants meaning you can free valuable staff to provide front line services.

​​Tenancy Misuse

Identifying tenancy misuse not only reduces tenancy fraud but also minimises the cost of providing temporary accommodation and lowers the waiting times for social housing.
Datatank provides Local Authorities and Social Housing providers with a simple and cost effective means of determining tenancy misuse.
 
Our service identifies tenancy fraud such as subletting, succession and right to buy allowing you to focus your resource where they are most needed.

​​Tenancy Trace

More than often a tenant in rent arrears will leave the property and give no details of where they are moving to, meaning the debt is left unpaid.
 
It is time consuming and resource intensive to trace a tenant who has absconded. Even when the tenant is traced, further work is to be carried out to understand if they are able to pay the debt owed.
Datatank trace former tenants with outstanding rent arrears, where their whereabouts is not known. We will give insight into the movement of that tenant between addresses.

​​Fraud Investigation

We understand that it is time consuming and resource intensive to investigate and prosecute tenancy fraud. You may also be a social housing provider who does not have the rights under the Prevention of Social Housing Fraud Act 2013 (PoSHFA 2013).
 
This is where we can help you, whether you are a local authority or social housing provider.
We are working with Counter Fraud Investigators who will work alongside your own staff to prevent, detect and investigate tenancy fraud on your behalf.
