No warnings, no apologies...no ‘I’ll pay for your car wash bills’ or even quickly hose down our motor...no attempt to sweep up our garden...

Mrs Bubbs is doing her nut. We’re not really close with them next door, just on nodding ‘hello’ terms. I’m reluctant to go and say anything for creating bad blood and can’t be bothered with the awkward ignoring that will know doubt ensue everyday over a bit of dust. But I know if it was us doing that work we’d warn our neighbours and at least try and minimise the mess to those around us though. Just common courtesy surely?

Anyone been in a situation like this?
I’ve not been in such a situation, but I think I would make a big point of cleaning your car and garden while your neighbour is around and the work is being carried out. Make sure they see what you are doing. And if one of them is nearby just casually tell them to try to be a bit more careful.
It would definitely annoy me, so I know what you mean.

Had three extensions and a new house built on neighbouring houses/gardens in the last five years around me. My lawn damaged twice by delivery trucks, car and house frequently covered in dust/dirt from the building work and woken up after night shift by noise. Never had one apology or thank you from anyone despite owners living onsite. I couldn't think of doing any large scale work on my house without thanking my immediate neighbours with a bottle of something for the grief but that's just soft old me?

Starting to think that building work that requires planning permission in a residential area should have a a mandatory nominal compensation fee applied for adjacent owners to compensate for cleaning etc as long as the work goes on.

Could you try to go round and politely explain the inconvenience his work is causing you?
