Cell tower - Columbus Ohio

by Jason
(Columbus Ohio)

I am looking at buying a house and there is a cell tower behind the house. I need to know if the tower is designed to collapse within itself or if it is going to have a timber effect. The loan will not be FHA approved if the tower has a timber design. Meaning that there will be a downpayment of 30% instead of 3.5% It is a free standing cell tower and it is 64 ft tall.

Pull a copy of the drawings from the town building department and ask the town engineer to verify if it was built with a break point built into the design. These towers do not fall often, in fact I have only seen two come down in over 20 years in the business. The only way to tell is to review the actual drawings.
