Hello, my name is***** am a qualified solicitor and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Did you need their permission to install it in the first place and where was it placed?
Whilst you may have received landlord authorisation, you need to be sure that they could have given you such authorisation. The landlord may have the right to authorise things related to their specific property, but not necessarily in relation to the outside of the building or communal areas, which may require the consent of all owners. This will all be contained in the lease of the property which should be checked. So the issue is that landlord’s consent may not have been sufficient if the lease required all owners of the building to consent to it. In these circumstances the property management copy could remove it if it breached the lease. Taking action against the landlord would only be possible if they had specifically misled you by saying that their consent was all that was required or that you did not need further consent. But their ignorance would not be sufficient and only if you had specifically asked them about what the requirements were and they had then given you the incorrect information. Of course in the meantime there is nothing stopping you from trying to get the required consent as needed and you should ask to see the lease to satisfy yourself about what is actually needed.
