Default Phone line

My husband will be going to halfway house sometime at the end of the month. He has mentioned something about needing a phone line in the house. When I had a home inspection this was not mentioned. Can anybody give me info on this?

Yes, he will need a separate land line phone with no features connected (internet etc). this is because the HWH has to contact him at all hours. And ya have to have the line in before he is able to have visits. Hope

And if he's switched from the halfway house to home arrest, a landline phone will be required as well.

I just went thru this for my daughter.
I had to put in a landline with no features (no caller ID, call waiting or forwarding, etc). I also had to provide a document to prove the new line had no features. They suggested a bill. I had the installer write on the installation paperwork that it was a featureless phone line and they took that as proof.

They call at all hours too. It's like having a newborn baby in the house. They'd call just after we fell asleep, in the middle of the night, and then about an hour before we'd need to get up.

It sucked.

The HWH will need a copy of the phone bill every month. It is best to have the phone line taken care of before he gets to the HWH. I had the additional line installed about a month before he got to the HWH, and still had to wait for the first bill before he could get a home pass.

Is this the HWH in Brooklyn or NJ. Not heard of every month? Sometimes that will ask for another copy some where down the like to see if any services have changed.
