You'd be able to stay warm by burning all your lawsuit winnings.
But they are willing to let you keep it if it is in a bucket or on a pod?
He can use the balcony but he doesn't have permission to attach it to their property. So that means clamping it to their railing or mounting it on their wall is off limits. He can have a dish in his exclusive use area but he doesn't have permission to modify the property.
What has D told you since you have informed them of your situation?
The property manager must demonstrate that the installation does permanent damage to the facility. They can't just declare it so.
Done carefully, the only damage that might be done is that the finish underneath the clamping (or other non-pen) system wouldn't fade with the rest of the surrounding surface.
I think it is important to allow the property manager an out in this debacle and getting all of the other residents riled up removes that. If the apartments are as attractive as they seem to be to the OP, they can probably replace the lot of them.
Wow. Things have moved FAST this afternoon!
After I posted the above conversation here, I copied it and Emailed to Lisa McCabe of the SBCA. She's been keeping Andrew Reinsdorf, Vice-president of government affairs for DirecTV, informed of my situation. Lisa and I exchanged a few Emails, and literally 10 minutes ago, Mary Ellen from DirecTV corporate called me to say Lisa contacted her. We've scheduled a non-pen mount installation for Monday, June 6th, at no cost.
Mary Ellen and I also discussed DirecTV possibly helping me with a marketing campaign to inform the complex's residents of their rights to have DirecTV. Mary Ellen laughed when I admitted part of me wishes to stick it in management's behind here, but she did say she would contact their sales and marketing people to see if they'd be willing to perhaps front the cost of a mass mailing.
From the OTARD - "A restriction necessary to prevent damage to leased property may be reasonable." Then it says tenants can be prohibited from drilling holes through walls and roofs. How is your dish mounted and do you have a hole through the wall for the cable(s)?
No, they run through a vent.
That's all good news. I'm assuming you'll wait until after your new lease is signed?
But of course.
At this I hope you are not believing them,
Would you believe anyone who has his boot cocked?
You have the high road in this LV. Stick to it and you will be fine. Your gut feeling is what you should go with, not with what someone that doesn't live there thinks.
Congrats on your victory. Phone number for tec is 877 453 1428
Refreshing to read its getting better and Directv is helping with the install.
Actually, I don't have to call now that Mary Ellen from DirecTV corporate called me.
Understatement of the year.
I would get some kind of letter or agreement or something that says you're leased once the renovations are done. Did they facilitate the leasing of the off-premises suite you're staying in for a month? I'd go ahead and see if you can sign the new lease for post-renovation move-in. They're clearly lining up to screw you with that.
Any way you could get them to give you and anyone in your complex the referral bonus automatically for each tenant that signs up as a result of this mailing campaign?
And have you informed your lawyer of the latest developments? Cause as others have observed, it looks like they're setting you up to get booted out after the renovations are complete.
