1) did you get permission in writing? if not, then you may not have anything to sue the LL for.
2) if the LL said you could only install on the side of the building and not the roof, how did the dish end up in the front of the building? having equipment set up in the front of the building makes the building look unattractive.
3) can you return the dish or exchange it for something that can be installed by the side of the building, out of view?

: I asked my LL if it would be alright to have a satellite dish installed. He said it was ok only if it was professionally installed and not be placed on the roof but on the side of the building. So I purchase a Starband/Dish TV package for $600.00, a second reciever model 4900 $250.00, installtion $300.00, $300.00 penalty for not fulfilling a 1 year contract with Dish TV, total $1150.00. The dish guy comes to install the system,( dish size 2'X 3') seeing he can't put it on the roof which would be the best location he had to install it on the front of the building. Everything installed the dish guy was just about to leave when my LL arrived. Well he had a lot of choice words to say about the dish on the front of the building. He then had the dish guy remove the dish off the building. The dish guy took it all down got in his truck and left. Now I have a dish I can not use and I wish to sue my LL for $1150.00. What grounds do I have for a law suit?
