Fibre for Tenants + Landlords
Tenants in rental properties can ask (in writing) for fibre broadband to be installed at the rental property. Landlords must allow it, unless any of the following four criteria apply.
Installation would compromise the structural integrity, weathertightness or character of the property.
Installation would breach any regulations.
The landlord intends to begin or takes material steps towards extensive renovations or repairs within 90 days of the tenant’s request, and installation would affect that work.
The landlord applies to the Tenancy Tribunal and it decides that the landlord does not have to install fibre.
