I have a property down on the South coast which is currently tenanted. Just lately my tenants have started complaining that the television reception is poor. We have called in a television/Ariel specialist who informs us that the signal is weak in this area so advises that we either put up an extended Ariel with a booster (neighbours might not be to pleased ) or supply a satellite dish with a free view box attached.
My main question is should I as a landlord be footing the bill for this or is it down to the tenants if they wish to see television?
I personally think that if they could not get a signal on their mobile phone they wouldn’t expect me to erect a phone mast for them down the road so why is this any different?
I know this may seem petty to some people but where is the onus on the landlords going to stop?
