Data provided by tenants to The Bristol Residential Letting Co during the application and referencing process will be held for the duration of the tenancy agreement to enable the effective management of the tenancy.  If issues arise within the property The Bristol Residential Letting Co may call upon the services of third parties on behalf of the tenant.  As such these parties will be provided with appropriate contact details in order to expedite any service required. This information is provided purely for communication purposes and will not be passed on to any inappropriate sources.

The Bristol Residential Letting Co is obliged to hold data on the owners of properties rented by them.  This information will be stored in our third party software management system – Jupix.  Jupix Privacy Policy can be viewed here.

Some of this data is required to be shared with the tenant by way of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy or Contractual Tenancy.  In addition to this the HMRC makes demands on The Bristol Residential Letting Co for landlord data for which we are legally obliged to provide.  The Bristol Residential Letting Co will hold landlord data for a period of 7 years following the end of a tenancy and then this data will be deleted.
