Making A Request
Right of Access
Under the Data Protection Acts, a person has a right to be given a copy of his/her personal data. A subject access request should be made by completing the Access Request form (PDF) which should be signed and accompanied by a copy of a current identification document e.g. driving licence or passport.
Your request should be as specific as possible to enable us to identify where the particular data is held.
There are certain exemptions contained in the Data Protection Acts that restrict the right of access and allow for a refusal of a request. An appeal against a refusal can be made direct to the Data Protection Commissioner.
A fee of €6.35 is payable for each data access request. The Residential Tenancies Board will undertake to reply to a request within 40 calendar days.
Right of Rectification or Erasure
Under the Data Protection Acts, a person has a right to have his/her personal data corrected if inaccurate, or erased if there is not a legitimate reason for retaining the data.
A request for rectification or erasure should be made in writing, by letter, signed and accompanied by a copy of a current identification document e.g. driving licence or passport. There is no charge for such a request.
