    Undertaking a house refurb and i wanted to know what are the days/hours one can work during the Christmas period

    Obviously the 25th and 26th, Sunday the 27th and New Years day are a no no..

    But what about the 28th to the 31st

    And is it fair game from 2nd Jan?

    Works involve demolishing, chiselling, chasing, screwing etc

    I have one neighbour directly adjoining the property. I probably won't win an award for neighbour of the year but c'est la vie :D:D

    Normal working days
    from a council website, doing a search on google
    I suspect the council website will have the samefor your area
    https://www.hounslow.gov.uk/info/20038/noise_nuisance/1159/definition_and_types_of_noise_nuisance/2
    from the site
    also talk to the neighbour and explain what you are doing
    DONT have a radio blaring out , like some builders do , we ask them to turn it down often, as its often more of a nuisance then the DIY

    Why not ask your neighbours instead of some random people on a forum who don't live near you?

    28th is a bank holiday this year as boxing day falls on a weekend....

  7. Go to the neighbour(s) and let them know that if they find the disturbance too much to let you know and youll pause or stop for the day and they wont get any bother from you. Give them your phone number(s). If they think you are a reasonable person they will be more tolerant than if they are already in a conflict mindset.

    Best bet is to talk to the Neighbours, ive just bought a House to renovate , 1st job I always do is knock on & introduce myself , explaining what I’m doing and letting them know I don’t work funny Hours etc , plus then give them my Phone Number asking them to call me if there’s any problems there when I’m not around (I live a mile away)

    It always works well for me and the Neighbours I find

    Regards

    Phil
