Reply To: Providing information to the Rent Service post April 2008


We can pretty much do whatever we want with data provided our records with the Information Commissioner are up to date. The problem being how many LAs have updated the Information Commissioner with what information is held about their data subjects and who that data is passed to? Some things you should not do is leave it on a plane / train or lose it, or pass it on to irrelevant third parties without further consent (and an opt out). Is the Rent Service a relevant third party? The information the Rent Service require from April seems to be nothing more than a property survey, in that case the claimant should be able to opt out of supplying that information.
