Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
Did you get verbal permission to place the dish before or after you signed the lease agreement and moved in?
I agree with the prior attorney. However, the FCC ruling applies to a dish that is mounted on property that you rent, and technically common property is not covered by the FCC ruling. However, the fact that they gave you permission to install it---even if that permission is oral---still gives you the right to install it and leave it installed.
If the landlord removes the dish you will need to sue for the losses that you suffer as a result of the removal to include your early termination fee.
