A cell tower lease is a very specialized document that differs from any other straightforward rental contract that the average attorney deals with on a regular basis, hence even a good attorney can miss crucial language slipped in by the carriers in a typical cell phone tower lease. Where does it say that you need to hire an attorney to understand the nuts and bolts of a cell tower lease agreement? The answer is nowhere. The truth is that the carriers know that when a landlord is contacted about potentially leasing space on their land or building to a cellular carrier, they are disadvantage because they need to act quickly but most can't identify and select the right professional guidance in time and they either lose the deal, negotiate themselves out of the deal or sign a lease that has unfavorable terms and is below fair market value.
As a rule of thumb, even though you are the property owner and the cellular company is the tenant, all cell phone tower leases are heavily slanted in favor of the carriers. Don’t let that deter you from getting an agreement executed because a getting a cell tower built on your property or utilizing your building for the rooftop leasing purposes will provide long term income with A-grade tenants for 10, 15, 25 or more years.
