If I were the OP,

If they approached and asked for permission I'd probably let them use my power for free.

If they didn't ask I'd be unhappy and attempt to work out some reasonable compensation, but I'd still end up letting them use my power because:

A) Listening to generators running all day fucking SUCKS.
B) I wouldn't want to give them a reason to further mess with my house or property.
C) It keeps good relations with my neighbor, the person who is ultimately paying these people to be there. Would you want to be the reason his house isn't getting built on schedule (I guess this depends how much you like your neighbor)

Suggesting vindictive things like pulling valve stems, cutting cords or rigging the outlet to shock the person IS FUCKING RETARDED. Come on it's a few bucks of electricity, give your heads a shake people. If you do something like that you're really asking for those contractors to fuck with your shit.

Absolutely, even someone who claims to have built several houses doesn't understand that.

Now my parents do not want to involve the police blah blah blah... Now im just wondering what are my rights here and if theres anything i can do to stop these assholes from what they are doing.

thx
Unless your breaker panel is actually on the outside of the house, that means they have to be entering the house to re-enable the power. That's trespassing at best... break-and-enter at worst. Either is enough to have someone arrested.

Turn the power off, rig a camera to watch the panel, and when you have video of an unauthorized person ENTERING YOUR HOUSE, take the video to the cops.

Seeing one of their crew being taken in handcuffs and stuffed in the back of a cop car should put an end to it all pretty quickly.

Last summer my neighbors tore down their house and they had a wasp nest on the property. They ended up setting up camp in my attic.

I approached them the next day and told them the situation. I had asked them to pay for an exterminator to come in. They told me "I don't control the animals" and told me to fuck off.

The next day they came to my house and asked to borrow water and electricity... obviously I said no but I did everything I could to delay their construction. I'd call WorkSafeBC and report on every infraction I could such as wearing runners and china men straw hats instead of CSA steel shoes and hard hats. They'd also be bitches and work outside of construction hours, especially Sundays.

It's not the $4 of electricity. What if they mess up your lawn or fence or electricity outlets in the process?

It's like someone taking your car for a spin without your permission but gas only cost $4. Is that okay? Do your job right or don't do it at all.

Then you can sue them for damages.

Not really like that at all. Break and enter (what they'd have to do to get in your car) is a much higher degree offence than trespassing. Theft of an automobile is also a higher degree offence than theft of a small amount of electricity.

Another thing I should clarify from my earlier post, since I'm afraid it made me come across as unprofessional now, which is anything but the truth. If I did, someone let me know so I can edit it accordingly.

When I referred to it being $4 of electricity, I meant that specifically in regards to bringing the police into the situation at the current escalation, because I don't see the police investigating and charging a trades person who plugged into a power outlet for his one day on site. The actual theft is absolutely not okay.

No offense, but that's kind of petty.

You really can't blame your Neighbour about the wasp situation.

...im sorry but that is such an asshole move on your part. no one has control over mother nature, for all you know there could have been a nest on your property without you even knowing. it seems like you just took the opportunity to blame your neighbors for something they have no control over. hell if i torn down my property and the next day my neighbor comes running to me saying there is an increased amount of ants and that i should call somebody, i would definitely tell them to screw off.
rejecting their usage of your water and electricity is totally up to you and completely understandable, but screwing with the entire work crew there is just completely unacceptable.

Somehow wire the exterior outlet to the same line for the oven and washing machines. Make popcorn, and sit at the window and watch what happens next to the tools...

Wow you sounds like an old chinese douchebag.
You know calling in worksafebc will not delay the construction right?
The workers just get a fat fine from the infraction.

Make the phone calls NOW, and if nothing gets done start cutting their cords at the property line, or unplug them and give them a yank and see what goes flying.

You're an idiot, as usually proven in most threads you participate in.

The trades show up, plug in and there's no power. They'll be on the phone right away to whoever's in charge to get things sorted.

It's not the OP's responsibility to fix things or make calls to get things sorted out.

A lot of pettiness up here in this thread. Guaranteed, if you guys were actually standing in the yard, with a cord going over the fence, I don't think you'd have the balls to cut it.

Calling WCB? The building inspector? These guys are trying to do their job, just the same as you do.

Go and talk to the GC. You know what he's going to do? Reach in his wallet, and pull out a nice pretty $50 for you, and tell you to come back when you are ready for more.

Is this really what its like to have neighbors around here? We're ready to pull the shotgun over $5 of power?

Fuck me! What happens if I dare ask you for a boost when my battery is dead, take my first born?

Talk and communicate! It's not that hard.

"Hi, your subs are helping themselves to my power. It sucks. No one asked."

"Oh dude! I'm sorry, we have about 5 subs on sight right now, and it gets a little nuts. What can I do to make that right for you?"

"You can taste the curb man. I'm gonna American History X your face!-and I took the liberty of calling the city, and WCB-two fuck you in the ass branches of government. Cause that's how I roll."

I noticed you didn't respond to what Mindbomber and I both pointed out, trades people are going to plug in where most conveinent - yet you having built several houses failed to see that.

Finally, a reasonable answer - except the OP has already mentioned he's done this and the trades people found a way to turn it back on - so welcome to this thread.

Any better answers?

Edit: Keeping it clean.

Sadly, yes.

That's why I called out what it really is, NIMBYism, and you can see the pettiness increased as people realized they've been rightfully called out and are trying in vain to come up with any viable excuse.

For once we're completely on the same page.

Perhaps you missed where the OP said this happens between 11-3 when no-one is home. How would you like to stop it if no-one is around?

You absolutely can, yet this is obviously from someone who's never been to court to sue for damages. It ain't as easy or cheap as you think.

Screw going American history x on his ass, now we want to go straight up american and just sue.

Awesome. Let's import that little bit of american wisdom and get court happy. Once again, fuck me...people are petty.

If I was a judge, my first question would be, "did you talk to the guys?"

"No"

"Then no justice for you."

He has talked to them, yet Shead if you haven't talked to the GC, then track him down. Don't wait because that's just stupid. If I were you and the GC said he doesn't care then call an inspector ASAP. Stuff like this "happens everyday," but surely doesn't mean you have to just put up with it.
