mlettings is a specialist letting agency providing housing to the Private rented sector on behalf of our landlords. In order to carry out our services, we require personal data to process your application. We need this information to satisfy our statutory obligations and to satisfy third party interests e.g. Landlord’s insurance terms and conditions.


This privacy statement aims to give you a clear view of how we use personal information that you provide, our dedication to protecting it, your rights and the options you have to control your personal information and protect your privacy. It also outlines what personal information we collect about you when you visit our website and how we use your personal information and the third parties we will share it with.


mlettings staff will need for you to provide basic personal information. This is required in order for us to process your property enquiry efficiently. It also forms part of our health and safety policy for our staff when carrying out accompanied property viewings.

“Personal information” is any information that relates to you and identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us. mlettings will collect various types of personal information and special categories of personal information in order to fulfill UK Legislation. Without this information we will be unable to progress your application.


When you contact us to use our services or register to receive information from us, we will ask for some personal information. We will also explain what information is required in order for us to provide the particular product or service.

For example;

  • Your full name
  • Your email-address;
  • Contact telephone numbers;
  • Employment status
  • Your date of birth and/or confirmation that you are above a certain age; 


Most of the information we collect about you will be personal information that you have voluntarily provided to us. For example; through our website, our head office, via the telephone or email etc. Other sources from whom we may obtain your personal information include:

  • third parties (such as credit reference agencies, law enforcement/regulatory bodies, and organisations/companies providing commercially available databases e.g. Electoral roll). Some of these third-party sources may include publicly-available sources of information.


On acceptance of your application;

To process your application, we use a third-party company called Goodlord;

  • The personal information we collect when you create/first sign in via our third-party application processing company (Goodlord) will be used for identification and authentication purposes.
  • We will also use this information for credit checking, affordability checks, employment checks and referencing and Right to Rent checks.
  • It also ensures you will receive all valuable information relating to your renting rights.
  • It provides an enhanced, transparent customer service application process, where you can track the progress your application is making.

You can use the same account details to log in from any location and on any device. It is necessary to process your personal data in this way to ensure that we are fully compliant with UK legislation

In addition, mlettings will create a profile for you within our CRM system (Acquaint) with the information needed to manage your tenancy. The personal information we collect from the above and other sources listed will be used in the format that it is received, or, where appropriate, will be combined with personal information we obtain from other internal or external sources. We use this personal information for the following purposes detailed below:

1.        Efficiency: We process your personal information in this way as it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in providing better products services for you.

It also forms part of our compliance procedures to ensure we meet our statutory obligations to you.

2.        Processing your Rent payment: We use relevant personal information described above (including your name, email address, postal address, Bank and payment details) to process any rent payments, and to confirm payment.

3.        The Law:We may use your age, year of birth or confirmation that you are above 18 years of age to ascertain whether you meet the minimum age to comply with UK legislation. It is necessary to process your personal information in this way for the performance of a contract with mlettings.

4.        Preventing fraud: we will also use your personal information to assess your creditworthiness, referencing and to prevent fraud. For this purpose, we may need to share your personal information with our credit rating providers (see "how we share your personal information" below). This is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in ensuring we are not the victim of fraud and to protect our legal rights set out in our Terms and Assured Shorthold tenancy Conditions.

5.        To provide customer support: if you contact our Customer Service (or vice versa), we will use personal information such as your contact history to process your request and provide you with the best service possible.


We treat your personal information with care and confidentiality and do not share it with third parties other than as set out below.

On request from Government agencies;

We will also share your personal information as necessary and only for the purposes and on the lawful grounds described above with various third parties who process your personal information on our behalf, such as third parties that offer support services regarding your tenancy. We require that these service providers and other third parties adhere to strict rules when processing your personal information, including to only use your personal information in accordance with mlettings instructions and the applicable laws.


mlettings will disclose personal information where required by law or legal process, for the administration of justice for investigations by law enforcement or regulatory bodies, to protect and defend landlord’s property and legal rights.


We will share your personal information with other third parties, different from those described above, for example, insurance products, Broadband, utility companies, TV packages etc. In these instances, we will, where required by applicable law, obtain your consent to share your personal information in this way.


We are committed to protecting your personal information and implement appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect it against any unauthorised or unlawful processing and against any accidental loss, destruction, or damage.


Initial expression of interest in a property;

We may share limited personal information which you provide when you initiate an interest in a property or formal application to a third person or company. Should you not progress with an application your personal data will be deleted after 60 days.

Application progression;

We may share information we keep in your file with third parties if they are acting as our service providers and processing your personal information on our instructions or on our behalf. This sharing is to ensure that each third party can carry out support services for which it is responsible, in order that it can comply with its legal obligations.

If you have been a tenant or landlord of mlettings;

We will keep your personal information for six years from your last interaction with us, for example the date your last tenancy terminated, unless a longer retention period is required by law.

The following are examples to illustrate how mlettings keeps your personal information for as long as necessary for a particular purpose:

  • we may keep your personal information collected during a tenancy agreement for as long as required by UK tax laws. This may be as long as 6 years from the end of our agreement/tenancy.
  • we may keep your personal information for a shorter period if you ask us to delete your personal information. In such a case, mlettings will aim to delete your personal information within a maximum period of one month from the date of the request; e.g. (non- completed application)


As a general rule, we do not intentionally collect personal information about children under the age of 18. except where we are required by applicable law to keep it. E.g. Tenancy set up/to amend tenancy for dependents over the age of 18.
