If you have any queries concerning your personal information, please contact us at info@LOT9.co.uk
Personal information is any information that relates to you and identifies you personally. When you register to view, buy or sell a property we will need to ask you for some personal information such as your full name, current address, email and phone numbers. Should you go on to buy or sell a property we will then legally be required to obtain and hold for 6 years a copy of your photo ID and a utility bill or similar to meet the requirements of the Money Laundering Regulations. We will also need to keep the transaction information for the Inland Revenue.
We are registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and any information you supply will be treated in accordance with that Act. For more information about LOT9, please visit the About Us section. You can obtain further information about data protection laws by visiting the Information Commissioner’s website at www.ico.org.uk.

We use your personal data for the purposes detailed below:
Arranging a viewing: We need to take personal data for security reasons and to enable us to contact you to arrange and confirm the appointment with both yourselves and the vendor. This information will then be used should you go on to offer or buy the property. We will use this information to contact you about other similar properties you may be interested in.
Selling your home: You will enter into a contract with LOT9 and the Partner Estate Agent within which there is a requirement to detail all vendors’ full names, addresses and contact details. LOT9 and the Partner Estate Agent has to meet the requirements of the Money Laundering Regulations so we will have to retain a copy of your photo Id and proof of your current address. We may also contact you in the future to see if we can assist you with your current property.
Buying a property: By the time you make an offer or bid at auction we will already have some of your personal information which was required to arrange the viewing you requested. However we will now need to meet the money laundering regulations and will need your photo ID and proof of address; these will be stored for 6 years. We will pass your name and current address onto the buyer’s and seller’s solicitor by way of a memorandum of sale as we are required to do. We may contact you in the future to see if we can assist you with your current property.
We treat your personal information with care and confidentiality and do not share it with third parties other than set out below:
Website provider– We have a contract with the website provider stating they will not store your data or share your personal data with anyone but ourselves.

Social media– Your property but not your personal details may be shown on facebook, twitter and instagram etc.
Solicitors– At the point of sale/purchase we will pass the details of the buyer, seller and both solicitors to all 4 parties involved by way of a sales memorandum. This is a document sent to start the conveyancing process and to make sure the solicitors have the correct details for the other parties.
Surveyors– Before or after securing a purchase the buyer may require a survey. The surveyor will ask for your contact details which we will give out.
