Lease Rate Inquiry
by: Anonymous

Hello everyone. I came across this thread yesterday while trying to get an idea of how much rent should a telco company pay per month. I am hoping Enteng or anyone who commented on this thread and still renting out their land could respond. I was approached by a telco company and asked if I am interested in leasing my rooftop to them. I asked them to send a letter of proposal. I had concerns as well as to the total weight of the tower, slabs, utility box. If they are willing to shoulder the construction of metal landings, steps to access my third floor it is something I will consider. When I asked though how much is the rental fee they said I should be the one to quote my price then if it is too high they will negotiate. I am located in Marikina. Your thoughts, suggestions, and comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

Comment to M. Abrogar's lease concern
by: Interested curioser

What I think on the lease concern is first to check on the veracity of the lessee's claim on the merger with another telco as a reason for the delay in rental payment.

Big business is big business. In the Philippines, it is difficult to get info out from big business but there are ways to go about it for a small landowner / lessor to be assured.

Information is always key.

Cell Site Lease Renewal - Philippines
by: Enteng

WE just renewed the lease of Cell Site recently in the Philippines and our property is located in the province of Nueva Vizcaya. The rental P10,000 a month with 4% escalation rate on the 5th year. The lease started in 2004 and expired this year. As early as January we sent a letter (email) to Smart if they are interested for the renewal. No response until March. They send us a letter informing us that the rental is now P12,000 with a lower escalation rate of 3%. I send them a letter telling them that the lease is not acceptable and offered a lease of P25,000 with as escalation rate of 10% a year beginning on the 5th month. They were alarmed with my offer and started negotiating with me. After some exchange of emails and offering counter proposals, we finally agreed to a monthly rental of P15,000 a month with an escalation rate of 3.5% beginning on the 3rd year. It is not the best deal but this a 50% increase from the previous rental of P10,000 a month. Property owners for leasing should justify such as increase such as the performance of the company, do a research of their growth for the past ten years and how you contributed to that growth. Talk about inflation and the the increasing rental of properties in the Philippines, the increasing cost of doing business. Ask them to treat you as partners in their growth. These lease negotiators will definitely hit you low on their offers, you have to hit high. It would be nice if Tower Genius has offices in the Philippines to negotiate for us but in their absence, do a research and learn how to negotiate.
