Satellite dish restrictions against HR

A recent ruling in the European Court of Human Rights surrounding a satellite dish could have a massive impact on UK landlords.

Two Iraqi tenants and their children were evicted for installing a satellite dish but they won their case under article 10 (Freedom of Expression) and the right to freedom of information.

Many tenants are prevented from installing a satellite dish without getting prior approval by the landlord as part of the tenancy agreement.

I've let tenants install satellite dishes in the past but like any landlord you want to be asked first and reserve the right to say NO.

Another case of the European Court running a coach and horses through our legal and planning system?

To find out who's responsible for paying the TV licence.
