Existing cell tower on purchased land

by David
(Monroe, La)

I have purchased property at a tax sale and found an existing cell tower on the property. The cell company states they paid a one time lease for the property. Do I have any rights to force a new lease? I did see somewhere about a "run with the land" lease. Land is in Shreveport, LA and cell company is in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks!

Perpetual purchase of cell tower rights...
by: Sean (Tower Genius)

You would have to send us the paperwork for us to see what transpired. It is possible that the previous owner took a one time buyout but I believe that they would have needed to get the previous mortgage holders approval in an NDA. Call us so we can give you some guidance once we have a bit more information.
