§ 63.212. Duties of the prospective NLSP and the applicant when an interfering station condition is identified.

 (a)  The prospective NLSP shall notify the applicant that there is preexisting local service at the service location within 1 business day of the date the NLSP receives notice of the interfering station condition. The prospective NLSP shall contact the applicant by telephone, email, first class mail or in person to request that the applicant verify the address at the service location.

 (b)  If the applicant fails to respond to the notice within 5 days, the prospective NLSP may cancel the application.

 (d)  If the applicant verifies that the address is correct, the prospective NLSP shall explain that new local service is not able to be installed using the same facilities due to preexisting local service at the address and request the applicant to provide proof of ownership or right of occupancy.

 (e)  If the applicant provides proof of ownership or right of occupancy, the prospective NLSP shall advise the applicant of the following options:

   (1)  The applicant may authorize the prospective NLSP to contact the OLSP to confirm abandoned service.

   (2)  The applicant may attempt to resolve the interfering station condition with the customer of record, if known to the applicant.

   (3)  The applicant may arrange for the installation of new facilities.

     (i)   If inside wiring is required, the applicant shall provide proof of installation before the prospective NLSP is able to proceed with the LSR.

     (ii)   If new facilities (for example—outside wiring or a network interface device (NID)), are required, the prospective NLSP shall advise the applicant that the applicant shall pay for the installation of the new facilities pursuant to tariff rates and that the installation may take longer than 5 days.

   (4)  The applicant may cancel the application.
