Lawful use of your information without needing your consent
We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:
1. Where we need to answer your enquiries and application, to perform and administer the tenancy agreement we enter into with you and to process payments.
2. Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
