No, I don't think so. I already have during an HOA fight. And to be quite blunt, not one tenant out of a thousand knows about the FCC dish rules. There's something many of us don't understand...if you're presented with a contract for a lease, a purchase, or anything you do NOT have to accept it as is. Just mark through the sections you won't accept and initial that. This indicates to the other party that you're good to go, ready to sign, but NOT with the marked terms. It's then up to the other party to agree or reopen negotiations. My point is that I AM a supporter of dishes back as far as the C-Band days and have had an operating system myself since 1985. However....The desire/ability to slap down a landlord with the FCC really, really, really needs to take a back seat to the two working together. Not only a deposit is at stake, but also the tenant's dealings with future landlords. I've only once had to trash a tenant to another landlord who was asking for a reference. If a landlord tells a prospective landlord that a tenant took them to the FCC for a dish issue or, heaven forbid, took them to court, I promise you that the tenant in question will have a very, very difficult time finding the property they want in the future. Look, I don't mean to be cantankerous about this since I've had as many as five(!) dishes on my personal residence at once, much to the chagrin of my neighbors :lol:. But recommending to someone they file a complaint with the FCC before they at least try to work something out with the owner of the property is a sure fire way to cause many more problems than any television provider is worth. Naw, if I saw a dish that I had a problem with (meaning not properly installed, to code, etc.) I'd simply have the tenant remedy the problem. If the tenant refused, and if it was a major issue, I'd simply keep the entire deposit at the end of the term and not renew the lease. A minor issue, I'd probably blow off, it's not worth the hassle. But let me emphasize this: for a major issue, such as a major electrical fault that renders the installation dangerous, I would 1) first notify the tenant and 2) appear there myself with a contractor to remove any and all equipment that may be causing a hazard. OTARD gives no protection whatsoever to equipment that is improperly installed and is causing an imminent hazard. I'm talking about our Hall of Shame thread "honorees" here. I have no option but to do this in order to protect the property and those living within it. If any of you haven't seen it, check it out. It's one amazing thread! I repeat again....ask before you rent. Easy is better than hard.
