Hi, thanks for posting in our forum and good on you for reading the tenancy agreement thoroughly.

Rental properties usually have the necessary cabling to set up a TV so it can’t hurt to ask to the landlord to reimburse you for the cost of the cable. It would make sense for him/her to provide this for you as well as future tenants, but it would be entirely at their discretion. If the cable wasn’t listed on the checking-in inventory, and you were happy with the property when signing the agreement, then the landlord is under no obligation to provide you with one.

If the landlord is not happy to reimburse you for the cable, then obviously you can take it with you when you leave. Paying the TV licence is the always the tenant’s responsibility though.

Just wondering about responsibility if the aerial becomes damaged.  Ours seems to have developed a leak and as a result we have at least one damaged piece of equipment which probably needs to be replaced.  The areial lead almost certainly needs to be repalced to oand I can not see anything in our 11 year old agreement that related to this.
