What is the name of your state? PA November 1, 2004 our lease expired, and we have since been renting month to month....Our LL recently put the house up for sale, and now wants to be here during the day with contractors while we are at work. We have 2 children who arrive home before us and are not comfortable with strangers being in the house with them. We also have house cats we do not let out! Our LL did not even ask us, she told us they were coming. Do we have any rights here. Rent is paid up!

No your LL has given you notice that non emergency work is going to be done and your LL is doing you a big favor by being willing to stay in the house while they are working on the house . Your LL could have just given them a key and that would be the end of that . As long as you have been given notice there is nothing you can do accept take some vacation time now and stay home too . You cannot prevent work from being done on the house in your absence as long as you have been given what your state deems to be reasonable notice . Check your state govt web page links for LL /T info to learn what that notice is to be .
