Federal Court of Justice of Germany (BGH)—Cell phone antennas on rooftops only with consent of all shared property owners
Apartment owners of a condominium association must not enforce the installation of cell phone antennas on their rooftop against the will of individual apartment owners.
The Federal Court of Justice of Germany (BGH) in Karlsruhe announced this decision in its ruling on Friday. Due to the controversy over possible health effects from cell phone antennas,
there is “at least the serious possibility of a reduction in the rental or sales value of the condominiums,” the explanation said.
Therefore, all apartment owners would have to support such a decision (Az.: V ZR 48/13).
