Many Landlords and Letting Agents failing to Notify the ICO

It has been announced by the ICO that few Landlords and Letting Agents notify it when dealing with the personal information of others; and as a result, those concerned are breaching the Data Protection Act.

The ICO has urged the National Association of Estate Agents and The Association of Residential Letting Agents to tell its members of the importance of notification.

A spokesperson for the ICO, a Mr Gorill, has said that he wants all market players to comply, and that the launch of legal action is promised against those who don’t.

The ICO’s work has seen a 15% increase in notifications so far this year as a result of its work.
