Beware Current Lease Owners
Whether you may be involved in a potential cell tower lease buyout, sub-lease or extension - be careful as I am sure you are already suspicious of people calling you about trying to buyout or extend your lease. There is a reason for that - and you know this is a business. There are many options and obstacles that need to be assessed to make sure you are making the appropriate decision regarding these transactions as you could be losing many thousands per month, by not having someone with extensive knowledge of the industry look over your situation, through our cell phone tower lease management services.
What are My Cell Tower Lease and Buyout Options?
If you’re already leasing out a portion of your land for a cell tower, hopefully, you know what you got yourself into.
Unfortunately, many cell tower lessors do not fully understand what they’ve signed up for.
With over 200,000 cell towers spread across the US, it’s easy to see how a few contract details can get lost in the mix.
With the increased use of smartphones and other wireless devices, cell towers are popping up all over the place and many property owners are really cashing in.
But being uninformed about the contract you’ve signed is not a situation you want to find yourself in. You may even find that you’d like to find a better lease arrangement or get out of the contract altogether.
Keep reading for a closer look at what makes up a cell tower lease or buyout and some of your options for a lease.
Cell Tower Leases–What You Need to Know
Rather than buying land all over the place, most wireless phone service providers simply lease space from property owners to build their towers. This could be a small section on the roof of a building or little piece of land.
The reality is, wireless carriers need a place to put their towers, and it makes more sense for them to rent a little piece of real estate rather than buy them.
What Is A Cell Tower Lease Buyout?
Cell tower lease buyouts–usually referred to as lease prepayments–are just a one-time payment made to the property owner, establishing the cell tower lease arrangement.
It does not mean that the wireless carrier owns the property or has the same rights as the owner to the property.
The lease contract spells out the rights granted to the wireless carrier and the rights retained by the property owner. Just like any other real estate transaction, all the details (for everyone’s protection) should be clearly laid out in the contract.
Is A Buyout Even A Good Idea?
A cell tower lease buyout pays you money upfront based on the expected value of the tower to the cell carrier.
Since a buyout is primarily speculative, there are–of course–risks.
One potential risk is that your buyout will be low, and the tower will be of higher value to the cell carrier than the buyout amount. That means more money in the cell carrier’s pocket and less in yours.
Another risk is that the cell tower will be turn out to be a bust. While you’ll still get paid in this scenario, you may end up with a useless cell tower on your property doing nothing but devaluing your land.
So before you jump into a lease, consider all the angles and all your options.
Get The Best Price For Your Cell Tower Lease
If you’re thinking of cutting a deal and leasing part of your property for a cell tower, you’ve got to make sure you get the best price.
But how do you know you’re getting the best deal?
Speculation is never easy, but there are a few factors you can consider to make sure you get the best cell tower lease buyout:
1. The value of your property
2. The location of the proposed tower
3. The current market value of cell tower buyouts
All of these factors play an important role the value of any buyout offer and you’ll want to consider them as you weigh any offers you receive.
Understanding the true value of a lease is very difficult though. This is one situation where getting in touch with a professional who understands the market and lease values could really pay off in the long run.
So You’ve Got A Cell Tower Lease Offer …
If you’ve already been approached with an offer by a wireless carrier, your best bet is to begin by considering it in light of the value considerations we went over above.
You may also want to think about soliciting other offers if you haven’t already received more than one.
If you already have a lease, you may occasionally receive offers from other private leasing companies. These offers may work out for you. But just remember, these companies are looking to capitalize on the cash flow of the cell service passing through your tower.
Understanding Your Contract
Wireless providers add new cell towers to improve their cell service coverage and ultimately make more money.
So it’s understandable that one of the primary components of any agreement between you and a wireless provider will involve the ability to collect rents on the tower.
Another important part of your contract will be the access rights to the tower. The wireless caller will need access to the tower, so any lease agreement will involve an easement and access rights.
It’s also a good idea to understand the local laws and codes that govern cell towers before signing any kind of an agreement.
Make sure you understand your rights before entering into a lease agreement.
Should I Sign A Long Term Contract?
The short answer is, no.
When negotiating a cell tower lease contract, it’s best to err on the side of a shorter term contract.
Like many markets, the rates for cell towers are subject to fluctuation. So if the market moves up, you’ll be stuck with a lower rate.
Cell tower leases can last up to 5 years, but may be as short as 1 year.
Just remember, any time a lease is up for renewal is another chance for you to renegotiate your rates.
Whether you already have a cell tower lease on your property, have an offer, or are just exploring your options, you have to understand the market and the process.
Before you commit to a contract, make sure you know what you’re getting into. If you have a buyout offer, it’s a good sign your tower is worth something–so make sure you truly understand the value.
