We have been in a property for a year now,

when we first moved in there was no TV (we provided one)

although when we were shown around the land lord confirmed there was an aerial.


The aerial is not listed in our itinerary.


However after we moved in we realised that the aerial cable was damaged

(water travels through the inside of the aerial cable from the exterior into our living room in wet weather)


When we first asked the landlady if it was possible to repair this she said ok no problem,

but now ( a year after we first asked) she is refusing to take responsibility.

Although she has offered for someone to arrange to rip the cable out- if we would prefer.


We were wondering, as the flat was rented to us supposedly with a TV aerial connection,

if we were responsible for repairing the aerial.


Our tenancy agreement does say that the landlord must: keep in reasonable repair

the fixtures, furniture, equipment and effects . Does this include the tv aerial cable?


It feels like the landlord is just being spiteful

(we are two young girls who keep the property well, always pay rent and have had very little contact with the landlord to date),


if she does rip out the aerial

the property will have to be leased next time without a TV point.

Which does seem like cutting off her nose to spite her face.


Any help would be appreciated.

it is quite correctly her responsibility to get it sorted


I think p'haps to her advantage too if its bringing in water/damp!


you could offer to arrange it to be repaired for her

and then get the repair guy to send her the bill?


that way it might gee her up to do something.


in the meantime, are near you TV transmitter?

[http://www.freeview.co.uk/availability then use the postcode checker]


then on the right names your transmitter and its distance


if you are within say 10-15mls


you might find a simple indoor aerial might work.


atleast you'll get tv that way


[and don't forget the licence ofcourse!!]



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
