Let's get this straight. The landlord owns the building. He can repair, reconstruct, or even demolish it if he sees fit. How he chooses to do this is his business. Some jobs require 5 men, some 25. But that's all up to the owner to decide. There is no such thing as a "legal construction worker". Anyone with an aptitude for that line of work and who likes hard work is free to seek out a constuction job, there are no legal requirements. If you think you are so knowledgeable about construction, then build your own home instead of renting someone else's.

: After much stressing my landlord over our buildings dilapitaed conditions, the management company is working on fixing our building but the construction is actually taking place outside in our court yard and only 5 people were are working on the project. None are legal contractors or construction workers. This is all because the management company does not want spend money on a contractor that could do this work right and in a week. What can I do? Is the work illegal?
: Thanks
