What to Look for in a Cell Tower Lease Consultant

What value can a cell tower lease consultant bring to you?  The main reason why there is such a disparity is because property owners understand their own business, but they do not understand the telecom business. So, if you are thinking about handling your cell tower lease on your own, consider this: In 2016, the largest cell tower companies averaged almost 3 billion in revenues each, with about 85% of this amount being profit. On the other hand, the landowner who owns the property that is a catalyst for the cell tower is only getting around 8 to 12% on average of the cell tower revenue being generated.

Why hire a Cell Tower Lease Consultant?

A good cell tower consultant will assist a property owner by reviewing all aspects of a cell tower lease deal. Ultimately, a property owner needs to understand all the pieces to a cell tower puzzle, not just the rent piece.  A cell tower consultant should navigate you through all the financial, legal and development aspects of a cell tower deal.

Vertical Consultants was formed in 2010 by attorneys, real estate executives and telecom engineers that had worked in the telecom industry for decades. We understood that most property owners, through no fault of their own, lacked either the information or the representation required to optimize either a proposed or existing cell tower or rooftop lease transaction.

Our primary goal is to, first and foremost, provide our clients with the information they need to maximize the value of any cell tower lease agreement they are presented, and, at the same time, to protect them from hazards they might not otherwise recognize.
