leasing my land to cell phone company

by Matthew Crouch
(Indianapolis, IN)

I have 3 acres (zoned agriculture) behind my house in which I'm considering reaching out to cell phone provider in efforts to get a lease in place for a cell phone tower. The cell phone coverage in our area is good with some providers and bad with others. I was thinking of reaching out to Sprint because their coverage is bad in our area.

There is currently no existing structure and the tower itself would need to be built. I'm assuming zoning changes would have to get approved, but I have no idea where to start. Any suggestions?

FYI - i'm located in a suburb of Indianapolis, IN; Marion County

Matthew, on the left side of this website over at the "Navigation Buttons" there is a button that says "GET A CELL SITE". Click on that page and bookmark it to your favorites. We have links to the real estate forms at a few of the carriers and tower companies along with some of the email addresses for their real estate administration departments. There is no guarantee that they will get back to you or even look at your property but you should at least be proactive in sending them your information. Often times they simply send out an internal e-blast to their real estate site acquisition consultants or subcontractors to take a look. If you are lucky enough to get a call back from them, let us know, we would certainly be happy to help you with the lease.
