    Workmens working hours?

    The house next door to me is currently empty and owned by a housing assosciation,this week theyve been working in it but the workmen are starting work at 7am or just before, 6.45am as was the case this morning and its sanding,drilling and banging so not so nice to get up to and with the house being empty it really echo's thru the walls,are there any rules about sociable hours for workmen?

    Invite them round to have a sit down with your parrot. You will never see them again.

    lolol

    complain to the housing association - i think (though i may be wrong) unsociable hours are defined as before 8am and after 9pm, so no work should be being carried out outside those hours.

    You beat me to it with that one! :-D

    during the weeks it 8am as far as im aware. For weekends it may be different

    If you find out otherwiseplease let me know as i was having problems with builders and would take it up again if this was to be proved otherwise espec the weekend part

    When we did house renovation, the workers came at 9 or 9.30 a..m. and packed up at 3.45 p.m. and we paid £300 per day per worker :x

    it will peobably be on your local councils website, if not on there website, they will no the answer as i believe its their responsbility to enforce it.
