    I got a text today from a girl im living with next year saying that she needs to speak to me about something serious. I rang her and she said the house she is living in now has some builders doing work on it for the landlord. Apparently the landlord and builders know each other so its not some building firm i dont think.

    She is the only one remainding in her house still and she went down this morning and found one of them had taken her washing out the mechine and was wearing one of her bra's. Apparently when she saw them him do this he said something on the lines of 'so your the dirty whore' and probably had a laugh with his mates.

    All her housemates have left early, presumably because of the pervert workmen. I said she could live with us for a few days because we now have a spare room.

    What would she be able to do in terms of the police and/or groups that sort out this sort of stuff. Maybe getting something like a video on her phone may not be a good idea as if they see they would get slightly annoyed and may do something.

    advice please

    Seek help at the students Union Etc there full of people who will offer sensible advice and put you in touch with the right people, most Unions have a relationship with a local law firm for getting advice on things like that.

    Definately dodgy, get her out of there asap!

    Tell her to talk to the land lord.

    If the building company is half respectable, the guvnor certainly wouldn't appreciate his work man portaying a negative company image. He might find the actual thing funny but he wouldn't like unhappy customers who won't let new customers survey the work the company carried out on the house.

    This leads back to talking to the land lord though, as he will ultimately be able to put that pressure on the guvnor. If it's a large company, the above is unlikely.

    No offence but to involve the police is such an incident is far too over the top, not to mention a waste of their time. She should of put her foot inbetween his legs.

    Edit

    Doh, just realised you said it likely isn't a building firm. Seems a little weird to me the landlord has allocated people who don't usually build to carry out a building project. Builders do that. I'm guessing it's a company with someone at the top.

    :eek: That's awful

    Unfortunately i don't think the police can do much as he didn't touch her etc.
    She is in a bit of a predicament if the landlord knows these builders he probably won't take it seriously.


    This would be the best way.

    Good luck and hope all goes ok

    As has been said, tell her to get advice from the students union or citizens advice bureau. In my experience there are a lot of dodgy landlords and they often use unqualified cowboy builders. She may be able to ban the builders from entering the property but the problem with tenents enforcing their rights is that the landlord can always just give them notice. She really needs to talk to an advisor with knowledge of the law and experience.

    Get her father to have 'words' with the builder in question.

    Your not batman, leave the vigilante stuff to the professionals ;)

    Going round with a group of mates isnt the greatest idea, especially as sick as it was he only put on some of her clothes. If he had touched her in anyway then things might be different. Its not worth beating him up over though, plus builders travel in packs and are normally quite large blokes
