Learn about the key aspects of cell tower leases and the sales of such leases.

The wireless industry has built more than 300,000 cell sites in the United States in the past 20 years. But many more cell sites are needed as iPhones®, iPads®, Droids and the like strain existing network capacity. More cell sites, each serving smaller areas, are needed to meet the goal of using wireless to increase broadband’s reach and speed. At the same time, tower management companies are offering to buy existing larger cell site leases and future leasing rights for large sums of money. This topic helps level the playing field by providing private and municipal property owners and their counsel with the expertise of two faculty members highly experienced in cell tower leases and sales. It helps bridge the knowledge gap between property owners and their counsel who may only infrequently negotiate cell site leases against the wireless industry lawyers who work exclusively on such matters. The information will focus on key business issues in wireless site leases, including lease rates, who gets the revenues from additional antennas or carriers being co-located at a site, major rent increases for renewals and avoiding lease terms which can restrict or prevent an owner’s use or development of its own property or trigger a mortgage default. It will address the sale of cell leases and future leasing rights, including typical sale prices, when to sell, when it is generally not advisable to sell, how to get the best price and terms in a sale, and avoiding provisions that restrict the use or development of the underlying property. You will be better able to identify and resolve issues that are unique to wireless leases and sales, including what municipalities can include in a lease that cannot be included in a government issued permit, site location and value, options on selling a lease, lease term and terminations, access requirements, interference regulation and mitigation, design and camouflage, and radio frequency emissions issues.
