Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello there --
Generally speaking, what you are permitted to do and not do in any rental unit is set forth in your lease. If acquiring additional power is something that the landlord did not agree to provide in the lease, then if you seek such an upgrade, you will be required to negotiate the issue with the Landlord to determine if he/she will pay for such upgrades or even permit such upgrades to occur (even if you agree to pay for them). There are no laws which require a landlord to pay for any of these upgrades and in the event that you do pay for them yourself with permission of the landlord, the law of fixtures requires that any upgrades you make to the property that are actually attached or are part of the property will become the property of the Landlord when you leave the premises.
