DIRECTV Landlord Approval Form


Thank you for considering us for your TV service. If you don’t own the property, we ask that you get your landlord’s approval first before installation.

We may have to make modifications to the property during installation. These modifications are often minor, like drilling holes in order to run cable and attach equipment securely to the outside of the structure. Any kind of modification may not be allowed based on the terms of your lease/rental agreement or may require pre-approval by the landlord. Landlord approval is often required with multi-tenant apartment buildings.

You should carefully review your lease agreement to determine if you have the right to make these modifications. If landlord approval is required, please request that the landlord, or its authorized representative, complete section 1 below to acknowledge authorization for the installation and provide this signed form to the DIRECTV technician at the time of installation. If the landlord verbally gives you permission or if approval is not required based on your lease or rental agreement, please complete section 2 below.

By providing this signed form to us, you're giving us permission to install your new DIRECTV service and receiving equipment, and are releasing us from obligation to remove your equipment after we install it. This signed installation permission form releases us, DIRECTV (including any installation technician), from any liability related to damages your landlord may claim as a result of an alleged violation of your lease/rental agreement as it relates to the installation of your new DIRECTV service.

Should your landlord only approve our service installation subject to special requirements that make the actual install more expensive (or exceeds what we offer as part of our standard professional installation), you will be asked to pay a corresponding charge, to be agreed upon by you and your installer, for the additional services.

In addition, please remember that technical issues may still prevent us from installing your DIRECTV receiving equipment. In rare situations, such as a poor line-of-sight to the satellite or inadequate grounding availability, we won't be able to provide service, so we'll refund your money back to you.
