Negotiating a cell tower lease is a daunting task. There’s a lot of paperwork involved with tricky terms that can lead you into trouble or a bad deal if you are not careful. As a property owner, your aim should be to get the best deal for your property.

Unfortunately, most cell tower leasing company representatives are well prepared as opposed to property owners, and this is why many end up making a bad deal. At Tower Genius, we believe that every landowner should be able to make informed decisions.

This is why we decided to make our process of dealing with successful site leasing negotiations public. Read these tips before you sign a contract.

Be Very Patient

They are pressured to record and report every time they reach an agreement with a landowner as well as what transpired during the deal. This has allowed them to perfect their techniques that usually pulls the pressure on the landowner.

We want you to know that if you are already leasing a site, it is time to be clever and make the best out of the situation. For example, when your lease is close to expiration, you can leverage this in the negotiations.

Do Not Speak First

So let the cell tower company throw the offer at you and then think about it before saying anything else. Keep in mind that these guys will always throw lowball offers to you because they know that they deal with uninformed landowners all the time.

Always Ask for More

The trick is to land at a sweet spot that benefits both parties. There is a good chance that if you have never negotiated with a cell tower company before, you may be getting a very bad deal.

This is why we always recommend checking cell tower leasing rates for your area before you negotiate a deal. Get in touch with us to evaluate your property and find out what your land’s actual worth.
