Since 2004, Steel in the Air has serviced over 3,500 landowners nationwide, by helping them to negotiate (and renegotiate) favorable leases with wireless carriers, tower companies and lease buyout companies. If receiving fair market value for your wireless tower lease is important to you, then you have come to the right place. We can assist you with making an informed decision based on comprehensive knowledge of all the factors relating to the value of your lease in the present and the future.
In some cases, the lease has been undervalued for years, and the expiration presents an excellent opportunity to renegotiate a better and more profitable lease. Situations, where there are many tenants on the tower, are likely to be excellent opportunities to renegotiate for a better cell tower lease agreement.
In other cases, the lease agreement was originally signed on the basis of higher expected revenues, and the tenant is currently upside down on the lease payments, i.e., the tower is not profitable for them and the landowner stands a good chance of killing the lease if they fail to extend at reasonable (lower) rates.
There are numerous factors that contribute to these decisions most of which the average landowner does not even know about, yet alone understand. Fortunately, we have negotiated cell tower lease agreements and extensions with all the major carriers and the major tower companies.
We know how to evaluate a site’s true value and how to ascertain the difficulty and the expense in building a new site to replace it.
We can also project the current income on the tower and what the likely expenses are so that you have a good idea of how hard you can push. Our goal is to assist you in getting as much for your expiring cell site lease as possible – the operative word being “get”. We won’t put you in a situation where the lease may be terminated.
And that’s where the fine art of cell tower lease negotiating comes in; we know how hard to push before the tower company decides to move the tower. Without the basic information of what the relative value of the expiring cell site is to the carrier or tower company, you are not negotiating, you are just blindly stabbing for the correct lease amount.
Steel in the Air has assisted many clients with lease expirations. Our services are typically offered on a flat fee basis although in some cases we may be engaged on a contingency basis based upon the improvement we help you get in the lease extension. Contact us for more information.
