Com-Serve, a leading cell tower lease negotiating company in Georgia, now provides expert advice for landowners considering entering into cell tower leases with cell tower operators in exchange for space on their property. In the ever-expanding world of mobile phones and internet services, companies are seeking to expand their reach and consumer base into more areas. In order to achieve this, cell phone towers must be placed on what is often privately-owned land—an arrangement that includes a lease contract between the cell tower company and the landowner outlining specific cell tower lease rates.
However, according to David Espinosa, a leading cell tower lease negotiating expert with Com-Serve, it’s important for property owners to understand the intricacies of such contracts before signing anything. While the initial offer of money might seem too good to ignore, according to Espinosa, “If a company wanting to enter into a cell phone tower lease has approached you, it's important to know exactly what you're getting yourself into. The average Joe probably doesn't know very much about the value this would have to the company as well as the negative side effects of having cell tower leases. These companies are more interested in profit as opposed to the making sure that the person is given what the property is worth.”
This is the reason why companies like Com-Serve stress the importance of hiring an expert cell tower lease consultant to ensure that the property owner understands all of the benefits and consequences of entering into such an agreement. “A consultant can help a client determine the value of having a cell tower on the property,” says Espinosa. “This is usually based on things like how unique the property is.”
There are other considerations to consider when negotiating cell tower leases—considerations that again, the “average Joe” might not even know exist. Could this carrier just plant their tower somewhere nearby? If so, is this location at least preferred? What if the property is one of many sites cell towers can be built on? According to Espinosa, “A consultant can investigate and report this valuable information, which will make the negotiations of the lease closer to a client's terms. If they've chosen a consultant in this case, in the long run, even 100 dollars a month could end up being a smart investment.”
Com-Serve was founded in 1997 in response to the Telecommunications Act of 1996. It has served customers in every state and has successfully negotiated better contracts for landowners with all major cell phone carriers. Com-Serve can help individuals in every phase of the cell tower lease negotiation process, including those who have already signed contracts.
