Data Protection
Do we have any experts on here?

I have a dispute with a tenant who has moved from one of my properties.

I am trying to confirm dates that they moved to a social housing provider.

I would like to ask the social housing provider to supply information on dates that the tenant applied for and took over their new property. I am not asking for personal information.

Would they be able to supply the information or would this breach data protection regulations?

Data Protection
Under the Data Protection Act 2018 [General Data Protection Regulation] you have a right to request information for a specific purpose.
You have to explain why you want this information.
The housing provider require the consent of the person to release any information to you.
Contact the Social Housing providers Corporate Governance / Legal Department who will provide you with proper guidance.

Why do you need to know when a person applied for a property with another landlord? If I applied to a mortgage lender today and had my application accepted in 2 weeks - what would that have to do with another landlord?

Data Protection
Thanks for that.

To be honest the application is irrelevant in my real dispute itís basically nosey. The former tenant suggested he was offered the property immediately. Just a point scoring exercise really, nothing to do with the breach

Looks to me like Data Protection Laws are put in place to stop information being given people like you.
