This is a perfect example of the type of post that is inappropriate in this forum; it's not meant to help or understand, or maybe frame the situation in a way the poster might understand. On most of these points, 'Builder' is incorrect. Construction and demolition is regulated for good reason. Five people died on Park Avenue last week because of lack of good permits and other factors. With some jobs, workers are required to have a certain amount of skills or a license. And the attitude of 'if you don't like it, move' is off-base in this forum by anyone.

: 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
