Agreements relating to Telecom masts and equipment are complex and should not be entered into lightly. At Farnfields, we are well-versed in such matters and have specialists who can help landowners on new or renewal leases. Such leases can relate to commercial or agricultural properties.
When landowners deal with commercial operators, new agreements are often governed by the recent Electronic Communications Code (which superseded previous Telecommunications legalisation). We understand the implication of the new Code.
Agreements for Telecom masts and equipment tend to be long term arrangements and so must be considered carefully to ensure you can maximise your income and protect the future use of adjoining land. In particular, we are able to advise you on a multitude of technical matters including:
- Code rights
- Removal of equipment
- Alterations to equipment on site
- Lift and shift provisions
- Rent reviews
- Sharing of sites by operators
- Service of notices
- Court applications
- Operator obligations
- Registration at the Land Registry
We work regularly with specialist agents, valuers, accountants, tax advisors and other professionals to ensure any Telecom leases or arrangements are structured according to your needs and specific to your property.
