Neighbor gets tower but Verizon needs to pass my property

by Eddy
(Morgan Hill, CA)

Verizon is negotiating with my neighbor for a tower on his property. My neighbor needs to pass through my property to get to his and so will Verizon. So Verizon needs an easement. Verizon also needs power which has to pass through my property. They don't want to pay me anything except pave a nasty bit of dirt road they need to pass through to get to their future tower. Apart from the easement they also wanted an SNDA. My reaction to that was: "You're not leasing anything from me, what are you trying to protect with an SNDA?" Next I hear nothing from them for 2 months and now they are sending me an email with the question if I would agree to a "right of first refusal", which appears to me even worse than the SNDA. I would like my neighbor to make a few extra bucks on a deal with Verizon and I don't really insist on making money on it myself but I get the impression that it will actually cost me money in the future with these contracts hanging over the property. What can I do to resolve this issue?

Is there any other way that Verizon Wireless can access the proposed cell tower without crossing over your property? We would absolutely love to help guide you, since they love getting things for free or way below market value.
