Resolved Question:

Some years ago i put up a website to complain about the shoddy workmanship of a local builder
http://www.occuk.co.uk/McCann%20Building%20Services%20of%20Penarth
The builder is threatening to take us to court of profits and loss of good name
All the contents of the website are to the best of my knowledge true
I believe he is starting to bully us, my wife is very worried
Can the builder play make a claim against us?

Alex Watts :

my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

please let me know are what you saying true? Can you back it up?

Customer:

look at the web site. I took all the photos and all contents are true but may be subjective but I do not think so

Customer:

also the copy of the builder email are cut and pase

Alex Watts :

Yes I looked at the website.

Alex Watts :

As long as you can justify and back up everything said then you do not need to worry

Alex Watts :

If he wants to take it further he would have to go to the High Court and issue proceedings. He would also need to show a direct link between that and suffering serious harm

Alex Watts :

But if what you are saying is true, then you do not need to worry

Alex Watts :

It would cost him about £20,000 to take it to Court which I doubt he would have

Alex Watts :

Therefore you need not be concerned

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything about this today please?

Customer:

also I am thinking of adding to the web site "if you have had problems with a builder you can put it on this site" would that be incitement?

Alex Watts :

No that is fine. But if it is your website then you need to make sure that material by others can be justified too

Customer:

please confirm that you are qualified in law

Alex Watts :

I am a Solicitor yes

Customer:

Yes I under stand that also I would tell them that They are responsible

Alex Watts :

Yes.

Customer:

can you please sent a copy of this chat the me *****@******.*** BTW are you in the UK

Alex Watts :

Yes although the site is based in the USA, I am in the UK

Alex Watts :

Once you rate the format changes and you can save the chat or print it out

Customer:

OK

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything else ?

Customer:

I am now going to be cheeky ;)
