Does your SBA Communications cell tower lease need to be renewed, extended, amended or renegotiated? Has SBA contacted you to extend their lease agreement or perhaps did SBA offer you a perpetual lease buyout or to purchase your rental stream or cell tower easement?

Property Owners... If you've been contacted by an SBA cell tower representative, make sure that you do not sign any terms sheets or letters of intent, proposals or anything without having a wireless leasing professional (namely us) take a look at it first.
Let us be very blunt. SBA is a top notch company, run by some of the smartest people in the wireless industry who have been around cell towers since the Stone Age of wireless. (Kind of like us.) Out of the Big-3 Tower Management Companies, they are the most difficult to deal with, and they are the most unpleasant to negotiate with and have the slowest turn around -- especially if you have more than five years remaining on until lease expiration and they have no pending co-locators waiting to lease tower space. With that said, they are very profitable, Wall Street likes them and they have top professionals working for them to provide them and their shareholders with the best deal. Don't expect them to share their knowledge with you. SBA does not view you the landlord as a partner in their business model. In their mindset, from our dealings with them, you are just a landlord who should be kissing the ground they walk on. Nice attitude, right?
You should make sure that you are able to get on a level playing field with them.
