After a year long battle, I have recently evicted a tenant and am in the process of repairing the damage to the property by the previous tenant in order to re-let.
There are a number of letters still being received at the property addressed to the previous tenant which give a strong indication of possibly being from debt agencies or similar. I intend to return these letters unopened to their originator along with a letter clearly stating that the addressee is no longer at this property.
Would I be in any legal breach if I also requested to the originator of these letters to inform me of any debt recorded against people at this address?
I’m sure that the response would be “can’t tell you data protection act” and all that, but I want to be sure that the new tenant is not inundated by debt collectors knocking on the front door.
