Privacy Policy

Some Agents and landlords have expressed reasonable concerns which may raise concerns for all forum users.  The following questions and responses are intended to allay such concerns:

 

  • "I am an agent – I do not want to list my landlord clients – they might be poached on the forum!"
    • This misses the point, agents are not asked norexpected to list landlords clients
    • Data protection rules would prohibit this without agents securing landlords' permission
    • As an ICO member I, Bob Leydon, will not breach ICO rules by such suggestion.
  • The forum is open to all landlords and agents without exclusion, however, the focus in on those landlords NOT represented by an agent.
  • Landlords and agents are assigned to separate forums with NO forum contact between each other.  Therefore any such concerns are unfounded.
  • The aim is for ‘go-it-alone’ and absent landlords to take reasonable responsibility for their properties and their tenants’ behaviour.
  • By enlisting; the forum it is then able to encourage responsibility by :
    • Advising of forthcoming events like cleanups
    • Forewarning of predictable problems can be drastically reduce:
      • Rubbish
        • Landlords are encoruraged to set up email distribution lists.
          • Weekly emails advise tenants to recycle and clarify collections, e.g. remember it's black-bin day tomorrow!
      •  Noise
        • Start / End of term parties – noise.  We can forewarn.
  • Will my details be protected, who will have access?
    • The forum will not, without your express consent, divulge to anyone,  within or without the forum:
      • who you are
      • whether you are even a member.
      • Any information we hold or you reveal
      • Exceptions might include public domain information
