When renting property it really is up to the prospective tenant to check whether a TV aerial and telephone line are in place, if they are going to be needed, before they take the tenancy of a property. Particularly with new build property which is let out, there may be no such items. If they are not present, negotiations with the landlord should be made at this point, before commitments are made. It is considered ‘good practise’ for these to be fitted in rented properties as standard, but it is not a legal obligation. If they are not in place, it is usual for agreement to be reached with the landlord that the installation costs of these items are shared on a 50/50 basis, between landlord and tenant. Obviously the landlord will benefit from these installations. If there is a TV socket in the property already, which is not working because there is no TV aerial, the landlord is obliged to fit an aerial so this existing socket will work.
