Landlord Referencing Members are not in breach of the Data Protection Act - Here's why :

I read about LRS/Tenant Referencing UK being illegal on the propertyinvestmentproject website earlier this week and that a gentleman(!) named David is currently writing a dedicated blog all about your company and your practices and their legalities, plus ICO investigation. (threatening comment now removed-hmmm?)

Having explored your website and read and understood the data protection legalities of it all, it's obvious that this individual has his own agenda and quite frankly his idle threats are pathetic. (wouldn't be surprised if he's a disgruntled letting agent or another referencing company! Wink)

I've joined your data-sharing community today and am about to upload all of my good tenants details. What a brilliant system! Kiss

Question, you keep going on about helping landlords to not take 'bad tenants'.

Where do you expect the people you label as bad to live? 

In a hypothetical world where all landlords used your 'system' would you just expect the people you label as bad to become homeless

Will Quick, So you're saying that it's OK for people to go round smashing up PRS properties, causing anti-social behaviour and running up mountains of debt in unpaid rent with absolutely no recourse?

In the REAL WORLD, why should you expect good landlords to keep taking the hit from bad tenants? ? ?

Yes of course bad tenants should be homeless especially in the PRS.

Nobody has the right to be housed if they are disruptive.

In the PRS a business decision may be made to take on only good tenants

Bad tenants will have to attempt to be housed by the council.

If the council won't house them then yes indeed they will be homeless caused by their own deviant behaviour.

Why do you think a private LL should risk his capital on some wrongun tenant so as to prevent homelessness!!!!??

The PRS is NOT a charitable enterprise, it is a business and as such it needs clients who conform to their contractual obligations.

Those tenants who don't conform could well find themselves excluded from the PRS.

Perhaps if every LL used LRS then LL would not have to suffer the 1500000 thousand evictions and 38000 repossessions mostly caused by wrongun tenants NOT paying their rent!!

I believe losses in a year  from wrongun tenants are in the region of 9 billion pounds!

As far as I am concerned bad tenants can sleep in the gutter.  Yes those labelled as bad SHOULD be homeless, their behaviour has earned them that right. 

Have you ever had a property trashed, a roof you provided over someone's head?  Get real, bad tenants do not deserve anything they are a burden on society, let their parents house them, let them live in old sea containers, under the pier BUT not in a landlord's property. These are not tenants who we label as bad, they are individuals who have no respect for others and in particular no respect for property, it is far overdue for landlords to stand up for their rights - the right not to have their property trashed, the right to have their rent paid.

Vive LRS.
