GDPR Landlord Compliance
Your GDPR landlord compliance will help you to protect the personal data you collect from your tenants.
Whether your own one property or a large portfolio, you have a responsibility to your tenants to protect their personal data.
Many landlords will be subject to certain legal requirements to collect personal data. In addition to this, most landlords will want to carry out some kind of referencing on prospective tenants, such as credit checks or referencing.
The collection, storage and use of personal data is called ‘data processing’. With GDPR landlord compliance you will ensure that you carry out all your data processing activities in a way that is compliant with the law. That will make it easy for tenants to exercise their rights.
