    Unless your tenancy agreement says that they can't, a tenant is able to get cable installed.
    My agreements say not to make any hole in any wall.
    Would that count?

      I would say so..... but again (as stated by others) it is the tenant who has disobeyed this clause and given permission to Virgin to install the system in their home, so its they who you should go after, the contract with Virgin was theirs not yours, you are chasing after the wrong party.

        so the new tenant wants nowbroadband which means another hole in the wall for a subcontract installers who don't drill outside in through mortar. My buildings insurance is up for renewal and I want to insure against damage but it seems to me a peril no company covers. We has 3 house Virgin damaged bricks in the 1st, ignored me until a week before small claim hearing settled £500 cost £650 includling legal fees.
        2nd house tenant got virgin to send Wayleave permission request we decline because of the 1st house. Still waiting for Virgin to respond and fix their damage.

          In today's multi media world with high speed broadband and 100's of tv channels at the push of a button its what most tenants want and insist on, and i can see that if they were not able to have it they may well re-consider taking the property, i think that if it were known before they signed the AST that the likes of Virgin or others were not allowed to install their services then they may not have signed..... as would a lot of potential tenants, the services provided by these companies is simply expected these days, i have all this and what is being said here is that as a tenant you can not join the 21st century, its your property of course and your decision but i would say it is only fair you tell any future tenants upfront that this is how you feel, they can then make an informed decision if to take your property or not.

            I expect landlords ranted about this years ago when presumptuous jumped up tenants thought they should be allowed such modern fripperies as water, gas, telephone or electricity.

            My old dad told me about his father who decided to have this new-fangled electric light (1900s or 1910s). It was installed, gas shut off. Dad year or so later woke up feeling very odd, went for walk to clear his head, came back and smelt gas. Wall gas-light pipe had been shut off with a cork which then dried out, leaked, nearly killed him
            I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

              Look at providing an access point for any future cable requests: a point at which there is ducting through the wall to provide space for many cables. But consider thermal insulation at the same time (could be access into loft).
