Part of letter received from my letting agency saying what I will need to provide if I need to asked for a rental payment holiday. Can anybody commend on if this  is right.

 

Any payment holidays are only being extended to landlords whose tenants are experiencing financial difficulties due to the current pandemic and, as such, you will be required to provide proof of this. Proof of your financial difficulty to allow the landlord to seek this 'holiday' can be provided as follows;

- Sign off note from doctors (obtainable via 111)
- Comparable wage slips showing a decrease in income or SSP payments
- Bank statements for comparison showing the same decrease in income
- Letter from your employer showing reduced hours/layoff
- Letter from your accountant confirming a reduction of income
- Copy of benefits claim

In the same way as mortgages, the rent will not be written off.  It will still be owed and accrue on your account so we are asking you to do as much as you can to pay your rent in order to help you in the long term, by minimising the debt.

I find it disturbing they are asking for personal information which is none of their business now or in the future.

I also wonder where they sit with GDPR and data protection rules

 

I doubt your landlord even has a clue he should be registered with them either !!


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

Does look like potential GDPR breach there wage slips should be sufficient, they are asking for far  more than the Council would want for Council Tax Relief.


We could do with some help from you.
