Would you provide a wall mount tv bracket?

I am remodeling a small 2 bedroom house and I am making it open concept living room/kitchen. I took out a wall and now there is only one wall to mount a tv. The house has lathe and plaster walls would you provide a wall mount bracket at tv area,put up a piece of wood for them to mount to or do something else to prevent damage?

If you're renting it, just state in writing and verbally that they cannot mount anything on the walls. However if this is an expectation for rentals in your area, then yes, I would mount it yourself. If you mount it yourself would include a clause in your lease that the mount, if it fails, you are not responsible for damages etc. Else you could owe them a TV!

A renter asked me one time to install a wall mount for their TV and I happily assisted because (A) it was a concrete wall and I had the tools with me to do so and (B) they had minimal tools and no experience.
