Can anyone please advise. I have lived in a flat for 10 years at the same rent and get on well my elderly Landlord. For four months there has been
building work on the flat beneath mine bought by a developer to convert from a 1 to a 2 bed. The chimneys and interior walls and ceilings
have been removed creating a huge amount of dust in the common way and woking its way into all my cupboards.
The hallway has been trashed and carpets ruined. Power to the landing light and door intercom left cut. So far my Landlord
has bought me a battery doorbell tried to impress on the owner / developer that I under a lot of stress with the
noise and dust. They have not been to speak to me and just email my Landlord to fob him off, he said the works
breach four clauses in the lease of the property, including not to cause nuisance to other occupants in the building.
Can I make a claim against the developer who says it within their right to do the works. It will be five months of being a
prisoner in my home. My Landlord did email me that he had been notified about the work but we thought it was redecoration.
He seems totaly powerless because it is a shared freehold with the developer and the work can’t be stopped now.
