American Tower Lease Experts Provide Transactional Coaching and Landlord Consultations.


By Steve Kazella

Does your American Tower lease need to be renewed, extended, amended or renegotiated? Has American Tower contacted you to extend their cell tower lease agreement or perhaps has American Tower asked you if you wanted to sell your future cell tower lease rent payments in exchange for a perpetual easement and accept a lease buyout offer? Maybe you are wondering why you are getting bombarded with calls about selling your American Tower  lease rental stream? Are you wondering what your American Tower cell tower lease is worth? Are you getting fair market rent value? 

What are average lease rates for American Tower cell tower leases?

After American Tower acquired their large portfolio of Verizon Wireless cell towers, they have been aggressively been pursuing their landlords to consider extending the lease agreements for upwards of 30 to 40 years in many cases for a $5,000 signing bonus, and they want you to leave everything "as-is" or "buy you out" of the lease and not have to make future rent payments. 

The Partners of Tower Genius are experts when it comes to American Tower cell tower lease agreements.

The bigger the signing bonus, the better for them in most cases, and worse for you the Lessor. Once you sign, you are locked in, and if you are lucky, your grandchildren will be negotiating the lease renewals when they are adults. If you've received an offer to extend the American Tower ground lease and you have more than 15 years remaining until it expires, you can rest assured that this is nothing more than a "fishing expedition" from American Tower to see if you take the bait, hook, line and sinker.
