Crown Castle, has and continues to contact cell tower leaseholders looking to extend their current cell tower leases. This sometimes seems odd to property owners, especially those with 8, 10, or even more years remaining on their cell site leases

So why is Crown Castle contacting you today?

Time Is of An Essence: The primary purpose of any tower company is to generate revenues from subleasing space on their tower and your land. Crown Castle’s needs time to do just that. Crown Castle will need a long term commitment to satisfy existing sublet lease it may have already made as it relates to the cell tower site and that same time to effectively market the cell tower site for future subtenants

Securing Tower Revenues: Crown Castle is always looking for a way to secure revenues and calm the nerves of its investors. If Crown Castle is able to garner an extension of its current lease term it serves as a a form of a guaranty that Crown Castle’s revenues will not be interrupted. Crown Castle will not let you know the financial benefit that it will derive when it gets a lease extension, but Vertical Consultants will.

Rent Increases-What Should You Get: Crown Castle will usually want to you a ‘signing bonus’ to extend the lease.” The signing bonus is beneficial, but it is usually only a small fraction of what should be offered. A cell tower landlord would benefit if they understand the true value of the lease is to the cell tower company. Remember that getting a good cell tower lease is both getting it right today and throughout the term of the lease.

We work with landowners to make sure that if they are open to extending their current cell tower lease they “get the most, but give up the least”.

We know as a property owner you may have a lot of questions regarding the pros and cons of any agreement related to their cell tower lease, and this is even more so as it relates to a potential extension of your cell tower lease.
