SBA has had a lease on my property for almost 25 years. AT&T and Sprint are operating on it and I know 2 fiber lines have been ran up to it in the last couple years.
Currently we get an annual check, the last one $9200 in 2015. Our only increases have been cost of living based on government observations.
I have no desire to sell the lease which seems to be what SBA wants. I can see agreeing to a 30 year extension. The current lease is up in 2019 and I'm curious about what to agree on.
This a small town country site but the county offices are here and it is a very high elevation for this county.
My driveway is their only easement. They built it up originally to bring in the building and it eventually eroded to a pile of rocks. I spent 4,000 dollars to rebuild it and SBA wouldn't cover any of the cost. So it seems they aren't interested in any upkeep of the land.
I have been told by several people including a property lawyer that the lease has always been paying us too low and now is the time to get that rectified.
