Flaw in the Tenancy Referencing Process?

I have never heard of this happening and would be asking the agents to look into what the GDPR legislation actually consists of. You are not a third party, and the agency is not selling you data, you require it for legitimate means. Indeed, they would have passed you other personal information of the tenants, name, previous address etc. to allow you to fulfil your contractual obligations as landlord of the property. I cannot believe that the Credit Referencing Agency used have such restrictions and imagine they would have received their own consent from the applicant to share the information.

Any sensible agent would issue their privacy policy to any interested party at the outset, which would surely include sharing information with their clients, and detailing what information that might be.

If I were you I would not be letting this go, as it sounds like the agents have not been looking after your best interests.... Read More

Tenant only missed one month but needs Section 21?

Hi Helen,

As you are intending to issue a Section 21 Notice the question of how much rent is owed is irrelevant, as this only applies to a Section 8 Notice. A Section 21 Notice is a 'no fault' Notice, meaning you do not have to declare a reason for its service.

You are correct in your understanding that as you need to currently give four months notice this will take it past the fixed term.... Read More
