Under the Housing and Planning Act 2016, information from the database can only be disclosed in an anonymised form if no individual or other person to whom the information relates can be identified from the information. Information about the nature of offences, length of ban or value of fines may lead to the identification of individuals entered onto the database.

The Database of Rogue Landlords and Property Agents is a record of banning orders that are currently in place and is not a register of all banning orders or banning order offences since 2018.
