I'm looking for some GDPR advice. I went through Tenant referencing 2yrs ago for a property I was moving too. I received a reference from my landlord that wasn't exactly glowing, but his comments were disputed by me. Despite this, I was accepted for the property. 


Now, I'm moving again and have had to use the same tenant referencing company. They have again used the old reference to make a decision, as well as the latest one. When I asked them why previous references were being used they said it was policy to include previous information. When I asked how long they use old references for, they replied saying unfortunately it always carries over.


Surely this is a breach of GDPR as they can't keep information about me indefinitely can they? As far as I was aware information should only be retained for no longer than is necessary for the purposes of which it was processed.


Can anyone advise please?

Just to add, my latest reference was good, so my issue is that they're always going to fail me based the old reference, but that reference was supplied for the purpose of the 1st referencing.
