In my woods (orange County) most developments are wired for BOTH, cable company,and the local phone company, so buyers have a clear choice when it comes to home phone as well as internet service.

Sorry, for some reason I thought the property is located in West Hollywood.
You can contact your agent and see if he or she can negotiate the issue with the builder. Also, do you think there might be other residents in the same neighborhood that have the same concerns? Sometimes, it might take more than one resident to have the builder to correct the problem.
Meanwhile, you should call the building department of the city where the property is located. I don't understand why AT&T is not able to tap into the system because it doesn't make any sense.
Please kindly let us know if you need any further assistance. We are always here to help!!
I am really sorry to hear about your experience. However, your inspector should have at least mention the situation to you just as a reminder. I believe what you meant from your question is that there is only cable wiring but no regular phone jacks in the condo.
In order to find out if the builder has violated the building codes in West Hollywood. You have to contact the "Building and Safety Department" at (323) 848-6320 from the City Hall.
"The Building and Safety public counter, located on the second floor, is open from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Thursday and every other Friday."
Once again, I am very sorry for your experience and can understand your frustration this may have caused. Personally, I believe that land lines are still required even though a lot of people like myself don't use landlines anymore. However, landlines do have advantages during power outage and emergency periods.
Please feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
