    Do you lovely hubbers think it's reasonable to request reduced rent? We would never have moved into a place next to a building site.

    The owners knew this was going to happen a year ago, it's all in writing. They even had a dilapidation survey done on the house to see if the vibrations from the work would affect the structure. The real estate agent had no idea... I'm just so disappointed.

    If we're were staying in Sydney longer than feb, I would be breaking the lease, but we are only here short term. I can't face moving again with 2 babies and 2 dogs for such a short time.

    I'd ask for sure. I remember when you where asking for tips of where to live etc before you moved over from Perth. The fact the owner knew would **** me off enough to be very livid. Maybe the owners don't care what happens to house as they to could be demolishing next year after you leave

    Yes, that's me! I'm enjoying the area, we have playgroups and weekly events we love, my little man even has a couple friends, so all going well in that respect.

    I'm very unimpressed with the owners. I'd like to see them try rent a property with a construction site next door (they are building a double storey on an elevated block, zero privacy!)

    Oh well, trying not to let it get to me.

    Definitely ask for reduced rent - if you left tomorrow it would be hard to rent a house next door to a construction site so it won't hurt to ask - list the reasons why - reduced privacy, noise and the fence issues , interrupting your quiet enjoyment of the property etc

    And/or perhaps ask for them to put up some sort of temporary fence on your side to keep the dogs/kids in. Won't look pretty but at least you'd know everyone is where they're meant to be!

    Shame @Olive Oil as Leichhardt is generally a lovely area!

    This hasn't spoilt Leichhardt. We'll see what the owners come back with.
