I would check for availability to you and let the renter decide if they want it, at their expense. Hook up is usually free, with a new account. If it is available, it is usually not an issue to get someone out to do the hook up, but without an active account, I don't know that a company would run the line to your place, just in case.
If part of your question is about pre-wiring, I would encourage this. Having cable outlets already set up in the most logical places will make everyone's life easier once the cable/satellite option is selected.
