Check the deeds to your property and the deeds of theirs and look out for the phrase along the lines ‘right to pass / access with tradesmen / workmen during daylight hours’

It would have been an error on the part of your predecessors legal advisors should such a clause not have been included.

I conversely was at the opposite end of this when I permitted a new neighbour knock a party wall and re-render his gable from the garden; the agreed 2 weeks stretched to 17 weeks and getting the residual gear and loose render off the property not to mention loosing a rendered finish which was painted to a view of unfinished cavity blocks this caused very bad feeling as the footdragger considered himself to be the victim of the piece as he whinged like someone making a speech in the dock.

My advice would be check out the legals; if that fails have a detailed specification drawn up by an architect or building surveyor and make sure you list exactly the extent and duration of the access required and ask what finishes the neighbour would like reinstated when you are finished.
