Be aware of the Different Tower Cell Rates
It is advisable to know the various tower leases where your potential cellular site will be located. Because there is not much data you can compare about cell site leases, it is recommended to ask a cell tower lease consultant to help you in this matter. Saving money is the common concern of cellular carriers for their cellular lease rates, thus payments for rooftop and tower rentals are not really that enough.
Usually, property owners and landlords are contacted by carriers, through a third party acquisition leasing companies, who identify sites and get lease signed at a new tower site for the cell and get paid for the job. The payment of these companies will be based on the rental price and terms they are able to negotiate, so the better terms for the carrier, the more money the leasing consultant will make. Turning a lease around quickly would also mean for the carrier leasing company to be paid premiums. You are therefore advised to be wise in making your deal with the carrier leasing company since they could give you a worse deal that would mean more money for them.
So, as you are already contacted to install on your property the cell tower or antennas on your rooftop, act immediately in the offer presented so that you can decide if the offers given are fair and not a mediocre one for you. To further determine your leverage in deciding for the amount of the negotiation, it is good to know if you have other choices, like in your neighborhood or a better location, where the wireless carrier can go.
Another tip for you in negotiation, is to pay close attention to the telecom leasing terms and its complicated language. In most instances, you are not a telecommunication expert nor your real estate lawyer, so it is good to contact or ask a cell tower lease expert to help you out.
There are various cell tower lease rates offered to landlords in the different parts of the country for tower and rooftop leases that you should be aware of.
It is therefore advisable for you as the landowner or the property owner, who will face with the negotiation of a lease agreement, to first ask some pertinent questions and get answers from the agent who is interested to lease your area for a cell tower. Some examples of the questions you should ask from the agent are the going rate of a cell tower in your area, why the interest is on your property, what could be your average lease payment, and others.
