Removing telecoms equipment from your property can be a complex and lengthy process to embark upon and only certain reasons for the removal will allow you to request it from the owner and user of the telecoms equipment. Further, it is important that the notice procedures under the lease or contract under which the equipment was placed on your property, as well as the Electronic Communication Code and Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, are considered and followed carefully.
We have designed a key checklist to help you start thinking of what you need to consider prior to the introduction of the Digital Economy Bill (which if made law is expected to take effect in the summer of 2017) and what you need to do to begin the process of acquiring the removal of the telecoms equipment off your property.
Please note that this is just a general guide to help you start your thought process for what you need to do and should not be used as a substitute for any professional advice. If the Digital Economy Bill receives Royal Assent, we will issue a revised checklist.
