Landowners and building owners alike are being contacted by Black Dot, a company working on behalf of wireless carriers seeking you to revise your lease.
Black Dot will promote that your lease may be terminated if you do not agree to reduce the rent you are receiving and if you do not agree to more favorable terms for the tenant.
Black Dot will endorse themselves as being experts in the wireless industry, and they will come across as if they are looking out for your best interest.
Here is what you should know about Black Dot:
How They Get Paid: Black Dot has developed a matrix by which they can use to value your lease. This value is not what you think it may be. It is not the value of your lease to the wireless tenant, but to them if they can get you to agree to certain terms.
Black Dot Experience Level: Black Dot agents who contact you are not usually people who have decades of telecom industry experience, but are salesmen who are working from scare tactic scripts, which are meant to get you to agree to terms that can be harmful to you, but advantageous to them.
Lease Termination-Percentage Levels: The percentage of cell sites that are terminated is extremely low, but Black Dot will make it seem that cell towers and rooftop sites are being terminated every day. The percentage of sites affected is actually extremely low and is based upon individual factors, not macro claims.
If you have been contact by Black Dot, then call us today, and we will review your lease and your tower site to see what options you truly have and how to optimize those options.
