Hi all,

 

Finally orcon says Fibre is available at my address.

 

So my Next step is to call orcon and get chorus team here, right ?

 

But i am renting the house, do i need to get the landlord in ?

 

Thanks in advance

I would be a very crappy landlord that would refuse a request for fibre. No cost to them or the owner. If you are in a duplex, apartment or down a RoW, then multiple parties need to agree. I was in a duplex and despite having direct access from the street to my property, we still needed to get approval from the neighbour.

The ONT needs to be mounted on the wall with screws.

 

A lot of landlords don't like things being hung on the walls.

Well, i live in a unit of 5, but mine is the 1st one with the 1 1/2 feet empty space & driveway next to it which leads to my garage.

 

 

My neighbor on the left has Fibre installed.

 

FYI: i did not see any chorus people digging the walkway anytime until now,

Generally Chorus want to do an install which covers all of the units with multidwelling units like that.

Does your landlord own all the units or just your one? If you're talking about a neighboring unit sounds like you property already has the fibre run to it and will be a simple install.

 

Reason I ask if he owns them all is that if he's OK with your neighbor having it he shouldn't have a problem with you either.

Slight hijack but similar question. Am moving to Epsom soon to a townhouse that shares a driveway with a bunch of other townhouses. This house doesn't have an ONT but some of the other identical townhouses do. Landlord has already said it is ok to install fibre.

 

Will that still need neighbours permissions and would they just use the same conduit that the other houses are already using?

If people in your shared driveway already have fibre installed then consent was probably gained, and no further consent will be necessary. Your ISP can check for you.

No he does not own the neighbor units.

 

By Neighbor i meant the other side of my house, next to driveway.

Right, you'll have to go through the consents process then.

 

Luckily things have changed and if the property owners dont want it to happen they HAVE to say no to it, if no one says anything within 15 days they will treat it as no one has a problem and move forward with the install.

 

Hope it all goes smoothly for you!

Only if the property is a Category 2. Only 52% of the properties are in this category. If you're not eligible for the expedited process the full consent form is still needed.

But my House(unit) is on main road. Does not have long driveway or anything.

 

Still might need consent from neighbor ?

 

And yes, i will contact my landlord before contacting ISP.

Doesn't matter if you're on the main road or not. You are in a unit of 5, hence you need consent. (Which may already have been given, if your neighbours already have fibre.)
