If I reveal that I am a victim to my landlord, can s/he tell other people?

A landlord is not allowed to share any information that you provide unless:

  • you consent in writing;
  • the law or a court order requires the landlord to so do; or
  • the person that the landlord is talking to is the “qualified third party” who provided the written documentation for you that states that you are a victim. In that case, the landlord is allowed to call that person to verify what is written in the documentation.1
