Privacy Impact Assessment - Letting Agent Registration

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

ISBN: 9781786527240

This privacy impact assessment considers any potential privacy impacts that result from the implementation of the registration of letting agents. It sets out the privacy risks and the action proposed to mitigate against these risks.

Executive Summary

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 introduces a framework for the regulation of letting agents including mandatory registration of those under taking letting agency work.

This impact assessment reports on, and assesses, any potential privacy impacts that result from the implementation of the registration of letting agents.

The assessment has identified a number of potential risks involved with handling of data as part of administering registration and actions will be taken forward as part of implementation to mitigate these. For example, the development of a controller-processor contract and information sharing protocols with relevant authorities.
