The landlord decided to move the cables to the back of the building and cut them all.
My cable was cut and I don't have internet. What can I do?
I'm looking to ask for damages because I have a home office that needs the use of internet. My telephone also depends on the adsl connection.

There was not any warning. He denies also the problem but Time Warner already accepted that they were asked to move the cables.

The problem will be solved maybe in 2 weeks. In the meantime can I get a wifi router (virgin Mobile) and pass this cost to the landlord?

Attorneys!! Please respond..

Your beef is with time Warner. Only Time Warner can go after the LL with you as a witness if you actually have evidence that the LL cut the wires. but there's nothing in your lease that says the LL is required to provide internet

Make sure your lease permits you to run a business office out of your apartment before you say anything.

I fully agree.

You paid for service DEMAND it! Whatever occured to interupt your service is NOT your problem. Simple as that. Demand a refund.

The LL does not have the right to destroy TW's property. I imagine he initially gave them permission to connect/mount to the building.

BTW, what proof do you have that the LL is responsible? Presuming he is, what are your damages? What proof do you have of damages?

You'll need to answer those questions if you hope to recover any lost monies.

I'm confused.
Isn't ADSL a phone connection?
Then why is Time Warner, a cable company involved?
What about TV?


Any outage of service must be handled with your service provider. They cannot bill you if you are not connected.

But any ancillary damages against your landlord must be handled in court unless it can be amicably settled.
