English Summary


A property owner made an access request with an expert office, which refused to provide a real estate evidence preservation report, claiming that it has no personal data within.


Art. 15 para. 3 GDPR includes the issuing of a complete copy of such an opinion to the owner affected by data protection law


The court held, that handing over a complete copy (Art. 15 Para. 3 GDPR) of a real estate evidence preservation report according to Art. 58 Para. 2 Letter c GDPR to the owner of an examined object is lawful.


According to Art. 4 Nr. 1 GDPR, it is justified to regard the expert opinion at issue here as a personal data. It is not a mere factual date, as the plaintiff thinks.
