Purchasing a property that has existing cell towers with leases.

by Betty
(Palmdale CA)

When purchasing a property with existing cell towers on it. How much should I pay the seller for the cell tower value. My seller want's 5 yrs of lease income. One tower only has 10 yrs left on the lease, the other 25 yrs. So for him to take 5 yrs off the top off both leases, I feel is excessive. Especially since I know the bank will not loan on lease income. And I believe most leases give the cell company the right to cancel within 30 days. So I am worried he is asking too much.
thanks for you help.

I'd be willing to entertain taking the risk on the cell leases. Maybe we can work together in this deal.

Would it help to have an attorney check with the tower owners to make sure there are not any information you were not told!
