Several years ago - unknown installer before house purchase.
No.The house was probably built in the 1980's.The alarm has never worked since the landlady bought the property i.e., seems to have just come back to life and has been ringing home (like ET!)
If it went to a small claims court between friend & his landlady as to who should pay how much - what would be the likely outcome in your opinion?
As above - the alarm was purchased with the property several years ago.i.e., it has never been an operational alarm in those several years. All it has done is to recently come back to life, probably found itself faulty, and automatically kept ringing back to its old support number.
ps thanks for the considered reply above - if it was you, and the sum being asked for was £1400, what would be your opening offer amount to settle (approx.).
Goodness - I would have gone for say £200 (as it is pretty much pure profit to the telecoms company on the back of an unfortunate circumstance) - in you opinion and experience, what risk is there in going too low at the start of negotiation?
