GAIN information is only available to members of the GAIN network (which they pay a premium for).
It is NOT available to any other creditor to view, nor are the exact details available to individuals subscribing to their CRF's.
This is because as soon as you apply for your CRF the information is updated and all those organisations who pay for the service are notified of your confirmed address, this effectively removes the entry!!!! (confirmed by the CRA's)
Plus this is one of those where there is a legal exception under the Data Protection Act and Freedom of Information Act and CRAs are permitted to withhold this information from you!! Tis the ONLY exception they have though on making information available to you!! (confirmed by the ICO)
