comment Having work done for a lessor on Shabbat
@DanF, I think that question would be a bit too broad. Personally, I think this question is fine (which is why I didn't cast the fifth closure vote). If it should be written more generally, then perhaps make it about a worker working on a Jewish lessor's property, leaving out the details about the keys and lessor's presence. But again -- IMO it's fine as is.

@DoubleAA I see nothing in the question that indicates as much.

@DoubleAA I didn't follow the links from the question, and nothing in the text of the question itself indicates that Tanach is under discussion.

comment Having work done for a lessor on Shabbat
mss, this site makes no guarantee of validity, and does not offer personal advice. Treat information from this site like it came from a crowd of friends and consult your rabbi with your particular situation. For that reason, I am deleting @user6591's comment asking you for more specifics about your situation (and your reply thereto). (If the halacha differs in different cases, answers can deal with that.) This question has four closure votes because it seems to be seeking a practical p'sak, and I can sympathize with the closure voters. Please consult your rabbi with practical questions!
