Appellee had placed certain CATV components, wires and boxes, on the property of Appellant. The CATV components were installed prior to Appellant’s purchase of the building in question and Appellant did not learn of them until after she purchased the building. Under a New York statute, a landlord could only demand a payment from the cable company for such an installation of wires and boxes consistent with an amount to be determined by the Commission on Cable TV.
