I just bought a new townhome and moved in few days ago. When the timewarner guy tried to install internet for me, he noticed that there was no internet and telephone cable wired in this new building. The building was contacted and agreed to repair. But this will involve works to knock off the dry wall on the ceiling, wire the cable through ceiling light and air outlet where it should not be used normally for cable. The kind of cable wiring may affect the security system work. Any one know if there is a legal system I can claim this construction defects? many thanks

Why not let them fix the repair and see if it causes any problem..
I don't understand wanting a claim when they agreed to fix..

so i assume you share a common wall with the neighbor? so they also have no wiring?

i find it hard to believe there is a new construction without a single drop of coax or cat cable...weird

there are no phone jacks or cable outlets anywhere in the home? what about blank plates?

I can believe it. The military family who designed and then backed out of the spec home we ended up buying upgraded much of the home but cheaped out considerably on the wiring.

I think I have a total of 2 coax drops and 3 phone jacks in the whole 2800 sq ft house. Fixing it would be a PITA since it is on a slab with no access below the house now.

God bless wireless internet.

My buyer agent said he has never seen this before. The builder missed the cables only in my unit.

They are trying to repair it. But with the slab, they can only drill holes and knock off ceilings now. There are lots of cosmetic problems and may affect the security system.

sucks... it doesnt even take very long to drop a few lines during the construction phase

i guess having the cable guy run a line thru an exterior wall to get you internets is out of the question?

The timewarner guy said it is not a choice. It has to be the builder wire a cable interior first. I have no idea how this building passed city and builder's inspection

Makes you kind of wonder what else they might have overlooked, doesn't it?
