The panel will examine lease provisions landlords and tenants frequently negotiate regarding this increasingly routine use of rooftop space and will analyze practical considerations associated with a rooftop telecom lease.

Description

The explosive growth of the telecommunications marketplace and the need for high-speed communications has created a demand for leasing space on building rooftops. Telecom leases are typically longer in duration, so landlords must understand and consider the impact they will have on their long-range plans for the property.

Landlord concerns typically relate to the equipment–its description by the lessee, its location atop the building, its installation and removal, and the risk that the tenant will seek early termination of the lease. Telecom tenants are most concerned about their rights to terminate the rooftop lease if technological developments negatively impact the equipment’s usefulness and their right to remain in the designated location as long as it is profitable for them.

Most leases are drafted by the telecom provider and hence are most advantageous to the tenant. While rooftop telecom leases can be very profitable, there are pitfalls inherent in these leases that counsel for landlords and tenants must consider in the negotiating process.

Listen as our authoritative panel of real estate and telecommunications counsel discusses marketplace trends for rooftop telecom leasing. The panel will impart knowledge on negotiating and drafting telecom rooftop leases that help minimize the likelihood of future legal disputes. The panel will examine lease provisions counsel to landlords and tenants should carefully negotiate during this rapidly expanding use of rooftop space.

Our panel will prepare real estate counsel to negotiate and draft telecom rooftop leases that help minimize the likelihood of future legal disputes.
