The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective from 25 May 2018,
gives tenants, residents, guarantors and landlord clients greater control
over how their personal data is used.
Residential Lettings Agencies are “data controllers” under the GDPR and
tenants, residents, guarantors and landlord clients are “data subjects”.
Letting agents are therefore subject to certain obligations and tenants,
residents, guarantors and landlord clients can exercise certain rights.
Our GDPR Guidance Notes for Residential Lettings Agencies explain the
workings of the GDPR in more detail. The Data Audit template can be used to
assess how data is collected and used. The outcome of the Data Audit will
help Residential Letting Agents to prepare a Privacy Notice using our
template. This needs to be given to all new and existing tenants,
residents, guarantors and prospective and actual landlords, whose data the
Residential Lettings Agencies hold. GDPR documents for residential
landlords are available in the following
