Hi there,
We got planning permission for extending our 2 storey building this summer. To do this work we must put scaffolding. The scaffolding work will take about 6-7 weeks (29 April to mid June. Work will happen at usual working hours: Mon-Fri 9-5. We cannot delay this work.

We have 23 tenants (who are students) and will end their tenancy end June 19. Some of them may have exams during this time, some of them may not even be there as they finish early. It is difficult to see who will be affected and to which extend.
This property is in a very busy road and this is explained to tenants before they agree to sign tenancy agreement. Never the less scaffolding will add another level of noise at certain times within these 6-7 weeks.

We informed the tenants a few weeks ago and they say that they want compensation.

Could you advice as to how deal with this situation given that each student will be in a different position.
thanks
