As a Landlord User, you may invite a Tenant User to a Property. We will require this Tenant's name and email address in order to bring them onto the GetRentr platform.
Similarly, as a Tenant User, you may invite a Landlord User to the platform in order to set up a property and begin communications. We will require this Landlord's name and email, and the rented property's address and postcode in order to bring them onto the GetRentr platform.

When creating a Tenancy on the GetRentr platform, we provide an opt-in that allows Landlord Users to assert that their tenancy agreement has a provision which protects all Tenant information under the Data Protection Act 1998. If this assertion is made, this will allow Service Providers to request Tenant information for non-emergency repairs.
If you book a trade service through the Platform you consent to allow GetRentr to pass on the contact details of all Landlord Users and Tenant Users and information about the Property to our Service Provider partners in order that they may contact you to discuss the details of the Service request.
Inactive Tenants' details will not automatically be not be passed on. They will however be anonymously displayed to the Service Provider as a person at the property who exists but whose information is protected.
In the event of an Emergency repair required at the property:
In the event of a Non-Emergency repair or Inspection:
In all cases, Landlord and Tenant information will be kept by the Service Provider for a reasonable amount of time for billing, to carry out the Service and an option for Feedback and Complaints procedure. This will not constitute an opt-in for marketing purposes.
