Clearwire Tower Lease Negotiations
If you have found this page in error while searching for Clearwire, please see www.clearwire.com. Steel in the Air assists landowners and rooftop owners with the evaluation and negotiation of Clearwire or Clearwire cell tower or cell site lease agreements. Steel in the Air is not affiliated with Clearwire or Sprint Nextel.
Clearwire is a wireless broadband Internet service provider and is unique in that they are 54% owned by Sprint/Nextel. As a result, in some cases, they can place their equipment inside the Sprint/Nextel lease areas and only need to add an antenna to the site. Alarmingly, some of our clients have found Sprint installing Clearwire tower equipment on their rooftop without any notification.
If you received a proposal to lease your rooftop or part of your residential or commercial property to host a Clearwire tower or antenna, you should seriously consider using the services of a trusted and knowledgeable expert to consult with you and help you understand all the implications and consequences of the offer.
Steel in the Air is just that consulting firm. We specialize in helping landowners and building owners like you, who've been approached with an offer to lease a Clearwire tower or antenna on his or her property in exchange for monthly fees.
While many times hosting a cell site can be an attractive revenue-generator; it's still a complicated matter. When you are being asked to sign any legally binding contract, it's only common sense to have an expert advocate in your corner. That's why Steel in the Air is here -- to ensure your best interests and rights are properly protected.
Clearwire encourages lease agents to make small initial offers to landowners for their lease agreement. By doing so, they force the landowner to negotiate upwards. Clearwire argues that by using a smaller ground area, they don't install as many antennas- both of which are typically true. However, this argument belies the fact that they still need rooftops and tower space to provide coverage. It is our belief that a cell tower site's location -- not its square footage -- determines its ultimate value.
Working in Your Favor
If approached by Sprint/Nextel or Clearwire to lease your rooftop or property or to expand or add equipment to a Sprint lease, contact Steel in the Air first. We will assist you with your Clearwire tower lease negotiation and help you completely understand your rights and obligations as the landowner.
Steel in the Air has years of cell phone and wireless tower lease experience and expertise. We're ready to work closely with you to thoroughly evaluate any Clearwire tower or antenna lease proposal by conducting all the necessary assessments and evaluations. For example, we start by reviewing Clearwire's acquisition process.
We will check local zoning ordinances and examine if any other properties are both suitable and attractive. Then, we provide an analysis of whether yours is the only property or just one of several Clearwire may be evaluating for an Internet tower site or rooftop antenna.
We determine appropriate lease rates by using our proprietary cell tower lease rate database. We are able to determine not just how much other local landowners received for Clearwire or other wireless tower leases, but also what landowners with comparable properties and similar situations received.
Performing this due diligence enhances and improves your negotiating position.
As with any cell phone or wireless tower lease agreement, many non-legal issues arise that must be considered by a landowner when evaluating an offer from Clearwire to lease a portion of property. Our experts will explain clearly and concisely every short-term and long-term consequence of signing a lease agreement with Clearwire to host a wireless tower or antenna.
Our services include a review of other financial terms in the proposed lease agreement such as escalation, option payments, revenue sharing (if appropriate), and attorney fees. We can help you negotiate a Clearwire tower lease that's guaranteed to protect your property while creating additional revenue for you.
