Plasterer staying on premises overnight!

I generally agree with Dan Sawyer and others that provided you are sure of these guys and you do some basic backround checks then I can see no problem with this someone staying in the property to complete the work. I have been on both sides having developed a number of properties it is not a particularly unusual practice. I have had overnight stays by tradesmen in my own properties and indeed, when I was myself operating as a small builder, I stayed overnight on several jobs which brought many benefits both to the job and the client (landlord). Also, I do agree with most of what Paul Sears says.
