Do you know how to respond when someone offers to purchase your cell tower lease?

Property owners with a lease for a cell tower or cell antenna on their property routinely receive six-figure offers to buy the lease and future leasing rights. While attractive, those offers, typically structured as perpetual easements, pose unusual legal, financial, and technical risks that the property owner and its regular attorney typically are not familiar with. The advent of 5G cell service is often touted as a reason to sell now. This topic will cover whether this is the case. Unsolicited offers are usually too low, well below typical sales prices. This topic will guide property owners and their attorneys as they evaluate and respond to such offers. It includes covering what drives the offers, typical prices, how to evaluate financial terms to determine whether selling makes sense (and when it doesn’t). You will be better able to evaluate purchase offers, identify and modify the very one-sided documents offered by purchasers, and address some of the risks involved in a sale. Such risks include making sure the property owner is not hindered in developing or using its property, insurance and bankruptcy protections, as well as questions as to the financial solvency of the buyer. Government agencies face all of the preceding issues, plus special questions of municipal authority, bond covenants/IRS restrictions, compliance with procurement statutes, prohibitions on waste, and risks of accidently triggering property reverters.
