  • BBB has been informed by consumers that this organization requests an applicants SIN number on their rental application form. According to the Office of the Information & Privacy Commissioner for BC under "Privacy Guidelines for Landlords and Tenants" C.14 "Can a landlord ask for a tenant's Social Insurance Number("SIN)?" A SIN is a unique identification number created by federal law for administering particular national laws and programs. The OIPC (Office of Information & Privacy Commissioner) recommends that individuals avoid disclosing it except when required by law for tax purposes or to obtain government services. It is not necessary for a landlord to request a tenant's SIN in order to complete a credit check. All that is required is the tenant's full name, date of birth and current address. Therefore, landlords should not require that tenants provide their SIN on either tenancy application forms or rental agreements. ADVICE FOR LANDLORDS: A landlord who has long struggled with non-paying tenants decides to ask all tenancy applicants for consent to obtain credit reports. He asks for a SIN for this purpose. He explains his purpose for collecting this information. While some applicants do not object, one applicant states that he does not give out his SIN to anyone except where required by law. The landlord and applicant agree that the tenant will give his date of birth and middle name to the landlord to order the credit report. The landlord advises the applicant that more than one person with the same name and date of birth could still appear on the credit report. The applicant states that if this does occur, he will obtain the credit report himself and provide it to the landlord.
