I have just renovated a house and need to install a landline. I have just set up an appointment for an enginneer to connect me and agreed a12mth contract ,but if the new tennant moves in i will have to terminate that contact so i can hand the billing over to them.Question is will i be charged for terminating the contract.
yes there will be cancellation fees
Surely, as a landlord, the responsibility for connecting a phone lies with the new tenant, just the same as the electricity, gas, council tax and so on.
Your ONLY responsibility is to ensure the timely payment of the monthly (or whatever frequency it may be) service charge and to arrange landlord insurance cover for yourself.
Let the tenants sort that out, when they order broadband an engineer will be sent if required and they'll pay any connection and setup costs.
The way you're doing it is expensive, you'll pay around £70 or more for the line connection and then an early termination charge for ceasing within the 12 month contract.
