Not releasing the actual credit score/report is fairly normal, the agreement that the firm I am with has with Experian is that the actual credit score/report is not released, but graded at Poor, Fair, Average, Good or something roughly equal to those. If the applicant is denied a rental due to credit then we provide contact info for them to get in touch with Experian for a free copy of their credit report.
As for the applicants name, employer, annual income, etc, that is provided to the landlord to make a decision to accept or deny, so this seems a bit over the top. Maybe your agent is just being cautious in an increasingly litigious environment. Best of luck.
