Lease of anchors/access

by Bob Mulligan
(Ottawa Ontario Canada)

If purchased a property several years ago and it turns out
there are two anchors on my property for the tower.
There is no lease or easement for the anchors. The telecommunication company is also using my right of way to access their tower.
What is a ball park figure should I be asking for rent monthly.

Misplaced guyed wires... oops
by: Tower Genius

To put it mildly, many big names in the cell tower business have cut corners by placing guyed wire anchors on property that they did not have easements for, which we can't comment on whether this was legal or illegal or trespassing or just some cell tower workers who had a few too many beers and were looking at their construction drawings upside-down.

They will almost never pay a monthly fee on a guyed wire anchor. In most cases they can just move the anchors and re-engineer the tower. It's also cheaper to replace the tower with a free standing cell tower than to relocate it.

You should be able to get a one time payment but don't get your hopes up, they won't pay much unless your property is very valuable and there is nowhere else they can put the anchor.
