    Tenant request CCTV and Floodlight, do I have to do it?

    As title. As title

    No.


    The forum lower limit on characters is annoying.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      No.

      But what is behind the request? Did tenant offer to pay?
      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...

          If it's something you want, (and want to maintain) crack on.

          However, my tenant (& friend) asked me for a fence to be fitted to his 4'6" garden wall for extra privacy, and offered to pay. I said no, as I would then have to replace the thing when it got blown down.

            You can purchase a fairly good battery powered floodlight for about £15, and an internal and external wifi camera for about £70 each.

            About 20 years ago a tenant asked if they could have a burglar alarm fitted. I did so. It has never been switched on by a single subsequent tenant.

              You don't have to, but you might want to if your T feels threatened by eg noisy people passing by at night, or if there have been thefts in the area.

                Get the reason why first then re-assess.

                  Recording sound tends to up the data protection issues. Unless the view from the cameras is masked off at the property boundary, someone is going to have to be responsible for data protection, and possibly even registration with the ICO.

                  For floodlights, please consider light pollution, and if on sensors make sure they don't trigger as the result of activity outside the property boundary.

                        I think the CCTV side is a bit of an ask of a landlord but the security light seems fair, simply for safety or security.

                          Security lighting is often more of a feel good thing than a real crime stopper. Done wrongly, it an reduce security by giving light for miscreants to work by, whilst dazzling the protectors or leaving deep shadows for the miscreants to hide in. Most people seem to put up lights that point out onto the road, which is generally wrong from a security point of view.

                            The tenant could buy an internal CCTV camera and position it to cover the entrance. They can then take it to their next property.
