- An incorrectly installed satellite dish may entail a direct risk for both people and the property.
- The only location where a satellite dish is permitted is on the balcony. It may not extend beyond the balcony railing, i.e. it must not represent any risk at all to other people.
Nothing may be attached to the façade of the building or the window frame. Nor to the balcony's concrete structures, railing or window structures.
If cables or other installations cause moisture to enter the flat or any other damage, the tenant is liable for the costs to remedy it.
A satellite dish may not be placed inside a flat if it results in the inconvenience that a window has to be opened to get a signal.
Nor may it be placed in such a way that it disturbs neighbours.
- Recommended methods are a satellite dish mount (i.e. a weight) that stands on the floor of the balcony or an attachment being fixed between the floor and ceiling of the balcony without drilling.
- If the rules are not followed, a written warning is sent to the tenant to reinstall or remove the satellite dish. If this is not done, it may lead to legal sanctions. The tenancy agreement may be terminated prematurely and the right to remain in the flat may expire.
Not having a balcony in the right direction or having no balcony at all is no excuse for failure to comply with the property owner's satellite dish rules.
