We rented this Townhouse in May. We asked several times if we could get Direct Tv they said yes. We ask if it could be put on the roof. They said yes. well got a letter stating we need to remove in 30 days or they will and charge us. WTH ?? We asked for permission. Well there is no other place to put it. It has to face south here. We can't even put up a pole.  In the lease it just says we can have it but have to have permission first. We did all that. I don't want to pay $250 to cancel my cable. What can I do ?? Thanks

Did you get written permission? Otherwise it doesn't count.

It might. I'm not 100% certain though.

Having a printed copy of the text may help, but if the lease states written permission it usually means something with authorized signatures on it.  The electronic age should not be depended upon for taking the place of documents where legalities are implied.

Is it in your lease that you can?

Where I'm from verbal contracts can be held up in court.
Texts will be even better.
See if your state honors verbal contracts/agreements.

 Do you have copies of the text messages? If you do that should be okay, but next time have it written in the lease

Yes with approval of landlord placement.

It was back in May. So I have to call my cell phone company to see if I can get a copy.
