Letting agency form before a property viewing

Could someone explain, why before a viewing, a letting agency required to fill a form with very private and sensitive details such as date of birth, marital status, employment, salary, etc.? Before I decide to rent a particular property, I don't want to give my details to every letting agency. Is this legal what they asking for? I understand for giving these details when I decided to rent a particular property, but why before a viewing?

  • Hello, Yes, it does seem strange to take down so much information. The only reason I can think of is for security purposes but, even then, they should only be taking down the basics. Maybe give them a call and ask? I would be interested to know... Thanks, Ruban
