See the email chains below between me/my wife and the landlord (Ken) and agent (Pina/Keith).
Essentially we approved access for painting while we were away on holiday, this then didnt happen and now the painter is hear until the work is done, likely 3 weeks. We were never told we would have a painter at the property for 3 weeks.
I wanted to find out what is allowed here as this is not living in peace.

Keith has told the painter to come back round even though we requested this to be moved to next week when we aren't in the property.
We are moving out next Thursday leaving the property empty for the last week of our tenant, and we feel this is very disruptive to have a painter here every day. My wife can't use the garden today, and yesterday I had conference calls interrupted due to noise.
Please can you call me to discuss asap. My number is ***********

See below to Ken which I have not had a reply from.
I don't want another day today with sanding noises, it is affecting my day to day working.
This is totally out of order, we should be left in peace for our last few weeks of our tenancy. I am not happy paying what I am paying in rent to have my wife being conscious about when she can get changed, when she can sunbathe in the garden, and when I can be on conference calls.
Please an you get in touch with the painter asap and advise him to return next Friday onwards when we will have left the property.
Ken please confirm receiving this email.

I am not very happy with the painting situation that is going on.
Yesterday dry paint mess went all over my wife's brand new Golf (which took almost an hour to get off) and today I am trying to work from home and all I can hear are sanding noises.
Could this work not have waited until we had left the property as it is quite distracting?
We are moving into our new house next Thursday and there is going to be around a week where we won't be in Percival Drive if you wanted to get a bunch of work completed.

We won't be at the property from 1st to 8th April, therefore please can you accompany the gas engineer on Thursday?

Just to confirm decorator will commence the outside paintwork on Tuesday 7th April 2015.
Also confirming that the gas certificate has been arranged for 1.00 pm this Thursday, 2nd April 2015. Could you let me know whether you will be at home or whether you would like us be there.
Yes that is exactly the case.
