cell tower on a property I want to buy

by Jet

I am looking to buy a property with a cell tower on it and right next to the house.The seller wants to keep the cell tower lease. Sounds so strange because it would be on a property I won and part of it is a tower that someone else gets paid to own. Any ideas on how I could get the previous owner out of this business and deal with the cell company myself?

Would you want to sell your lease rights
by: Rob

I own real estate with a SFH & there is a cell tower on the property. If I sell the real estate I am not selling the cell lease rights. Why would I. It is nice passive income.

Consider it similar to transferring your mineral rights (more commonly an issue in Texas & other areas where gas drilling is common.)

Did you win it in a poker game or something?

If you own the property, the tower should come with it. They should of considered that before they went all in with their chips.
