Want to get rid of a tower

I have a tower on a piece of land that I purchased. The tower was abandoned four years ago and has been cannibalized by the tower company for parts. They have no intentions of using this tower again. They paid a 40 year lease to the previous land owner and say that they do not have to remove the tower for 34 more years.

I want the tower gone; it is right in the middle of the land parcel and stops me from building any kind of structure.

Do I have any options?

Give us a call ASAP...

Give us a call for an initial free consultation. We need to ask you some questions and review your lease to see what your rights are. This is highly abnormal for a standard site agreement. Many times we have fixed these types of issues when a tower company is misrepresenting what the lease agreement states and what their rights are.
