Re: Landline

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.

Re: Landline

But the property at the moment has an incoming line to the house but no connection box for phone /broadband .I suppose i could install one myself.

Re: Landline

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.
