reasonable hours of entry for repairs

Posted by Evan on December 05, 1999 at 01:57:54:

My landlord has hired an individual to make repairs on damage to
the ceiling caused by a leak the ceiling. This involves sheetrock,
sanding, dust everywhere. Apparently, the only time this
particular repair person can work is in the evenings. I am a
single parent/student with two children. The evenings are a
horrible time for me with children to care for, studying to do,
etc. Is it reasonable for my landlord to insist on this when there
are craftsman she could hire to do the job during the day? The
only reason she hired this individual is because she arranged a
barter for other services. He is not experience doing sheetrock/
drywall work and has made quite the mess so far. I have already
given notice for the middle of the month. My rent, according to my
lease cannot be prorated so the landlord has the rest of the month
after I vacate to do have these repairs done but she is in a hurry
to get the property in "showable" condition. Ironically, the
damage was done months ago. It is only now that it is in her
interes to make the repairs that she is willing to have it done.
I'm in Mississippi. Help!
