      Any one know if there are any tenant rights regarding cell phone towers on a neighboring building? They’re doing some construction on the roof of the building hosting the towers and have moved the antennas a lot closer to our apartment. I want to make sure they put them back when they’re done and don’t leave them in the new position. Wondering where I might start researching this. Thx

        If they are on a neighboring building and they have the air rights you have no say where they put them sadly

          Thank you kindly. I figured there wasn’t much I could do.

          They just moved them from the roof to the side of the building while they’re doing work. They’re attached to a scaffold now and aimed right at our apt. Hopefully they go back on the roof when they’re done.

          Maybe I can erect a 40′ tall tinfoil Mu shield! We own our air rights 🙂

      What about other people’s cables hanging from the roof down the side of my building, right in front of both my windows in the living room? I live on the top floor and don’t use pay TV services of any kind. I cannot believe they did that, and it has been a while since they just left it like that.
