Renewal of expired lease.

by Russ
(USA )

We negotiated with Back Dot for a new contract, ATT sold the tower to Crown Castle and CC said they do not have the new negotiated contract. They refuse to negotiate and claim they are looking at moving the tower and of course offered us an extremely low offer.

In the mean time the old contract has expired and they are paying the full amount of the old contract plus an escalator.

What is the benefits and consequences of not having a contract for us and CC?

Lease renewal
by: Tim

I have been dealing with md7 about extending my lease. They are low balling me and playing games. My lease does not have a hold over clause and I plan on shutting the site down if the lease expires without an extension. I have been dealing with these companies since 1998 and the only way I have been able to get a response is to play hardball and call their bluff.

Russ this sounds like a mess however we'd like to help sort it out, nip it in the bud before one of the numb-nuts at the tower company actually tries to move the tower.

We've seen at least one other example where there was miscommunication and documents "allegedly lost" by the Black-Spot and AY-TEE-TEE and the inmates guarding the Crown in the Castle playing stupid.
