A condensed guide to the use of your personal information by ourselves and at Credit Reference and Fraud Prevention Agencies

  1. When you apply to rent a property or act as a Guarantor for a rental property, Landlord Secure Ltd will check the following records about you and others (see 2 below)
    1. Our own;
    2. those at credit reference agencies (CRAs). When CRAs receive a search from us they will place a search footprint on your credit file that may be seen by other lenders. They supply to us both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit and fraud prevention information.
    3. those at fraud prevention agencies (FPAs). We will make checks such as; assessing this application for credit for Rental Payments and verifying identities to prevent and detect crime and money laundering. We may also make periodic searches at CRAs and FPAs to manage your account with us.
  2. If you are making a joint application or tell us that you have a spouse or financial associate, we will link your records together so you must be sure that you have their agreement to disclose information about them. CRAs also link your records together and these links will remain on your and their files until such time as you or your partner successfully files for a disassociation with the CRAs to break that link.
  3. Information on applications will be sent to CRAs and will be recorded by them. Where you are responsible for paying rent, using a trading style of Landlord Secure Ltd called “Rent Tracker” we will give details of your accounts and how you manage it/them to CRAs. This will appear on your credit file as Landlord Secure Ltd / Rent Tracker. If you do not pay in full and on time, CRAs will record the outstanding debt and any arrears or defaults. This information may be supplied to other organisations by CRAs and FPAs to perform similar checks and to trace your whereabouts and recover debts that you owe. Records remain on file for 6 years after they are closed, whether settled by you or defaulted.
  4. If you give us false or inaccurate information and we suspect or identify fraud we will record this and may also pass this information to FPAs and other organisations involved in crime and fraud prevention.
  5. If you have entered into a tenancy agreement including the payment of rent and you do not make the rental payments that you owe, we may be required to trace your whereabouts and pass on these details to debt recovery companies.
  6. We and other organisations may access and use from other countries the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies.
  7. Your data may also be used for other purposes for which you give your specific permission or, in very limited circumstances, when required by law or where permitted under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998.
