Should I get involved in Bursary Fraud?

I’m currently involved in a court proceeding with a current University Student who as part of his defence in not paying is claiming he has no money and the example is that he’s on a University Bursary.
The issue here is that the student is also the registered joint owner(with his Mother) of the property £700k+ the dispute is against.
His father is working overseas and is the “real” head of the household, so I’m not going to spell out the tax implications and benefit fraud side of what that family is doing, but the moral question I have here, is do I inform his university bursar?

Thoughts?
