    I'm used to living dangerously - I work as a debt collector.

    Maybe you will get the case when it goes for 'collection'.

    What would happen if the QS didn't notify the work within 28 days? You could always wait it out and see what happens. It seems clearly you're not getting the work done you hoped you'd get so surely just see if they do send the paperwork in anyway.

    Yes, he moved the lights and did a few other things.
    I got a 6 red sheets of paper and the QS will send the certificate within 28 days. I've paid him up. I'm in the process of typing the letter up derailing the damage.
    His old donain is ready to go live with my review and images on. Thanks to buying his old domain name for £1.19 as he foolishly let it expire, I've created the email address info@ that appears on his invoices. Silly sausage forgot to change his email address on several sites so I'm getting his order emails for Screwfix and his Asda shopping, his invoices for clients that he cc's to himself, (with their contact info) as well as his Plenty of Fish messages (I bet his missus at home with the kids doesn't know about that one).
    Imagine if I changed passwords, cancelled orders, contacted customers he'd cc'd estimates for.

    you might want to read up on GDPR before you start storing and accessing other people's personal information!
    the short advice is don't store or access any of it!
    Yes doing truly shoddy work and wangling payment out of people regardless is one thing and that's how some people work unfortunately, I can sympathise it must be gutting, but I'm not sure taking it to another level is going to be a good idea if you break the law in the process.
    In terms of putting up reviews on the domain, that is not an offence although you should be careful to be truthful and accurate. Using personal data is a definite no-no.

    From what I remember of my 'GDPR training" (an unavoidable pain of working for most clients these days!), I suspect that an unauthorised person coming into possession of personal data would not, per se, be in breach of GDPR - the probable breach, if any, being on the part of the 'Data Controller' whose systems allowed that unauthorised access to happen. However, since I can't say that my memory ever gets too excited about such 'training', I may be wrong.

    In any event, as you say, the important thing is not to 'store' any of the data.

    Of course, things are changing, although probably not much. I understand that, even though we are 'leaving' the EU in two or three days, the UK will be bound by EU GDPR until the end of the 'transition period' (i.e. the end of 2020) - but after that we will change to "UK GDPR" - which, as far as I can make out, is/will be essentially identical.

    Kind Regards, John

    I would agree, but not, I think, primarily because of GDPR.

    As I understand it (which may be wrong!), existing UK laws are such that one can be in deep (and expensive) water if the detrimental consequences of one publicising 'bad information' about an individual (or company) are disproportionate to what one can prove to be the 'whole truth'. In other words, if publicising information about one piece of 'bad work' largely destroys the business of an individual or company, one is in likely to be in (civil law) trouble unless one can show that this is but one example of countless bits of 'bad work'. However, I'm no lawyer, so 'my understanding' may not be remotely correct!

    Kind Regards, John

    I think the main concern would be getting a proper beating, or damage / destruction of property.

    Electrician finds out about website, soon after you have 4 slashed tyres and broken windows etc etc.....
