Some neighbours of mine have been doing some building work for more than 18 months. I have got slightly tired of seeing the skip and all the accompanying mess each time I look out of my kitchen window. I don't know them very well, and would like to keep things friendly, but would I be out of order to ask when it's going to end? The structural building work appears to be complete, so I assume its just internal finishing that's still going on. I have no idea if there is some dispute with the builder or otherwise, but it seems like an excessively long time. The skip is on their property so I guess I have no right to complain. Any ideas?

You could strike up a friendly conversation and ask how the work's going, and see if that gave you some hint as to when the skip will be going. Unfortunately I think that that's all you can reasonably do - the skip is on their land and not causing you any inconvenience, other than aesthetic, so I don't honestly think you can ask them to move it.

Honestly i wouldn't, it's not like it's in your way and having neighbours who are pissed off with you is no fun believe me..

My renovation has been going on over a year now, I reckon we will be close to 18 months when we finish. It's not that unusual, especially if you have to do it one room at the time :-/

I'd go over, be frreindly, and find out when the skip will disapear.

IF it's on their land, there is nothing you can do, excep be patient.
