Cell Tower Leases and Getting Informed

Cell Tower Leases and Getting Informed

What Are Cell Tower Leases

When cell phone companies and cell tower companies need to place their tower, then they need to find land to do so. Since companies cannot just buy all the land they can possibly buy, they enter into leases with people who do own land. When a landowner enters into a cell tower lease with a cell phone company, then they are entering into a lease.

How To Obtain A Lease

Landowners usually do not have to do a whole lot in order to obtain a lease. Some landowners may contact mobile carriers, but the chances are very slim that the company will enter into a lease with the landowner. This is because there are a lot of hurdles that need to be cleared before a tower can be built. This is why landowners are usually contacted first by a mobile company. Once a company has contacted the landowner, they will discuss the terms and conditions, and then the landowner will have to sign the lease.

Why Do People Get A Lease
People who own land will usually get a lease for a tower because they are able to make money on a monthly or yearly basis. Some companies will just pay a person in a lump sum payment that covers the entire duration of the lease.

Many people wonder how much money can they make when they sign a lease, and the answer to this question is it depends. There are a few things that play a role in how much money a person will be paid, but they can expect to be paid around $800-$2000 per month. Sometimes people make far more than that.

How Long Are The Leases For
If a person is offered them a lease, then they can expect the lease to be a long-term lease. Most leases are good for 15-30 years. Some leases be a bit longer or shorter than this, but it all depends on how long the cellular company wishes to have a tower on the land for.

Questions A Person Should Ask
A person should be prepared to ask a few questions. The first question that a person should be asking is how much money they will be paid and how often will they be paid? They should also ask the company how long the lease is and if they can make changes to the lease in the future. Some companies may not allow any changes to a lease, which means that the landowner is left with no options and have no choice but to stick with the conditions of the contract. These are the most important questions that should be asked.

What To Do When Contacted By A Cell Phone Company Although it may be tempted to just sign the lease as soon as possible, this is not a good idea. When a person is contacted by a company looking to build a tower on their land, then they should get some professional advice from source that knows all about leases.

  • I have two parcels in high activity areas that I believe are excellent candidates as cell tower sites: 1. At the county line between Cherokee and (North) Fulton Counties in Georgia. It is in the midst of very high activity, both business and residential. (10.8 acre plot) 2. One-half mile from the intersection of Interstate 55 (Chicago to New Orleans) and US 98 (Florida to the west Coast). (17 acre plot). I am looking for help in finding a lessee for either or both. Your help will be appreciated.

  • We have purchased 15 acres at 2847 Kersey road, Branch, Arkansas 72928. There is no service in this area
    and I was wondering if you have considered putting a tower in this location. We are about a mile off Hwy 23 and about 2 miles off Hwy 217. We are located 15 minutes to Paris, Ozark or Charleston. We have a motocross track on about 7 acres and my house is next to track. Just thought I would suggest that you might look into putting a tower in this location since there is no service. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • David can’t I make a whole lot more money if I pay for and build the towner myself and make several leases with different users each paying say $1,300 per month than I would if I sign one ground lease with with a tower company and receive only one lease payment of say $1,300 per month? I realize I would have to hire a consultant to survey the market to discover how many tenants would like to have an antenna on a tower at my location and I know I would have to research the proper type of tower to build but that aside, theoretically by taking those steps would I not make four to six times as much rent by paying for and building my own tower?
