My own landlord’s GDPR policy

Make Text Bigger
My own landlord’s GDPR policy

GDPR is something that WILL affect almost every landlord in the UK. The new legislation comes into effect on 25th May 2018, by which time all landlords (and other businesses) will have to have registered with the ICO and have a GDPR Data Protection Policy.

We have spent the past couple of months preparing for the implementation of GDPR, and have now finalised our GDPR Data Protection Policy, (which is worded specifically for a residential landlord business).

If any Property118 readers would like a copy of our GDPR Data Protection Policy, to perhaps adapt and adopt for their own landlording business, we are willing to email this to them FREE of charge.

If you would like to receive a copy of the ready made GDPR Data Protection Policy, and information about other GDPR documents, please email: robert.mellors@hotmail.co.uk

Could landlords (with 5 or less tenants) justify holding ID data for the 'right to rent' check under Article 6(1)(e) "public interest". The check is a Home Office requirement for small landlords.

I'm not sure what you are asking, because you may have to hold data for a whole host of legitimate reasons, of which the "Right to Rent" checks are just one reason, but this does not alter the fact that you also have to comply with GDPR.

It also makes no difference how many tenants you have, because if you have personal data about even one tenant then that makes you a data controller and you therefore have to have ALL the requisite policies and procedures in place to ensure that you are GDPR compliant.

Just 4 days to go before everyone should have all their GDPR policies and procedures in place!

Brilliant stuff Robert. Thanks for all your hard work and extremely thorough documentation well worth the £125 donation to Choice Housing, your not-for-profit organisation. Sounds like you do some very good work there.

Yours

Jamie
