    Laws on tradespeople working inside a home


    If a tradesperson comes to work in my home, does that mean that no one else from another household can be present in the home at the same time? So my daughter likes to invite a friend or two to the house on different days of the week. If someone comes to my home to work on anything (as there’s a few things that need fixing around the house), must her friends not visit during these hours? Or how does the law apply in these cases? Any help would be really appreciated as I’ve no idea how the law might apply in these sorts of scenarios. Thanks!

    "At the moment, it is best to not have anyone there except the family who live at the address. We take Covid test every week to make sure every one is safe. Also keep out of the way when builders are at work in Property."

    "At the moment the law is changing all the time due to the COVID situation so always check, BBC is good, at the moment most restrictions are coming off so it shouldn’t be a problem, but as I know right now, just try to keep unnecessary contact down. I.e. if you've got someone working make sure they are wearing masks and tell kids and friends to just sit in rooms with doors shut for the time."
