We currently are negotiating with a Cell Tower Construction company about erecting a 400 ft tower on our property in NW Florida near the Alabama line. We requested a basic lease from the Cell Tower Company thinking this would be from a Telecommunications Company (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, etc.) that would be using the tower. Instead it is a lease from the Cell Tower Company.
1. Is this the usual procedure to negotiate with the Tower Construction Company first about lease terms even though there is no Telecommunication Company listed to use the tower?
2. Do we negotiate with the Tower Construction Company anticipating use by a Telecommunications Company at a later date and should we request from the Tower Construction Company when do they anticipate when that would occur?
