Repairmen On Site: Should You Stay Or Should You Go?

We only wish that was a skylight over our bed! Instead, today we have a whole slew of handymen and roofers in and out of our loft. The rains over the last few days have taken a toll on our roof (and consequently our furniture and electronics!) and our loft is a buzz of activity and repair. We're staying put, but others would rather be gone when work is being done in their space, so we ask you: Do you stay or do you go?

In theory the people which you or your landlord hire are insured for any damages that occur while working. But that still doesn't make us feel any better about strangers being in our home when we aren't there to keep an eye on things. Although everything in our loft is covered under our own insurance, that doesn't mean we want to replace it. On the same note, it doesn't mean we aren't trusting, it just feels weird to us.

But we've had friends and family who are ok with knowing the property manager has a key to let people in and having things done while they are away makes thing easier! Which do you do? Would you rather be home keeping an eye on things, or out around town getting things done? Let us know below!
