Is it possible to ask the letting agents/landlord for all the information they hold on you through the freedom of information act?
I rent of a letting agents but I’m suspicious they are not contacting my landlord about things I’ve asked about (basic maintenance) which has been going on for ages, and now, a tenant in the building passed away 3 months ago!!
I enquired about the flat as it was in a better state than my flat and viewed it, said I would take it on as it is (just needed a damn go clean and freshen up).
The letting agent said they would get back to me after contacting the landlord, so after waiting a week I didn’t hear anything so I contacted letting agent who said the landlord wants to do it up. Fine fair enough, but the painters have been in there for a month and one of them let slip that the landlord was hoping someone would take it on and gave me my own name. Now everyone in the building knows I’ve enquired about the flat and I have not said a word to anyone!!!
I’m very suspicious the letting agents is not contacting my landlord over things let alone my privacy!
What do I do please, any advice?
I will respond to question but I don’t live on here so please bear with me thanks.
