If you or your business received an offer for a Verizon cell site lease for your rooftop or part of your residential or commercial property to host a Verizon tower or Verizon cell phone antenna, it's to your distinct advantage to speak with us before you sign a contract.
Steel in the Air, Inc. is a consulting firm specializing in assisting people just like you – landowners and building owners – who've been approached with an offer to place a Verizon tower or Verizon cell phone antenna on their property in exchange for monthly lease fees.
While many times, hosting a Verizon cell site can be an extremely lucrative proposition; it's still a complicated and complex transaction. As with any contract situation, it's common sense to engage the services of an objective third party expert, such as Steel in the Air, to ensure your best interests and rights are properly and legally protected.
Advocating In Your Interest…
We have thirteen years of Verizon cell site lease experience and we're ready to put that expertise to your advantage. We'll work closely with you and your team to thoroughly evaluate any Verizon cell tower proposal by conducting all the necessary assessments and valuations. For example, we start with reviewing Verizon's site acquisition process.
We check local zoning ordinances, attempt to backwards engineer Verizon's radio frequency goals for the cell tower, and examine which other parcels would be both suitable and attractive. Then, we provide an evaluation of whether your property is the only property that meets Verizon's cell site need; the preferred property; or just one of many that are being considered for a cell tower or rooftop antenna.
We determine the appropriate rent through an examination of our proprietary cell tower lease rate database. We look to see not only what other landowners in the area received for Verizon and other wireless carrier leases, but what those landowners in similar situations as you received for their leases.
This due diligence significantly enhances and improves your negotiating position.
Agreements like Verizon cell site leases raise many non-legal issues that need to be considered by a landowner or business owner when evaluating an offer from Verizon to lease a portion of his or her property. Our experts will discuss the unique aspects of a cell tower lease to you as the landowner in a clear and concise manner.
As part of our comprehensive array of services, we can also review the other financial terms in the proposed lease agreement such as escalation, option payments, revenue sharing (if appropriate), and attorney fees. We can also help you determine how best to negotiate a Verizon cell site lease – one that protects you and your property's interests while creating additional revenue on the property.
Protecting Your Legal Rights…
It's important to remember that all cell phone carriers negotiate differently. We have found Verizon to be straightforward in negotiating cell tower leases and they often pay more for unique locations. However, their legal department is extremely stringent in their review of the lease. Their legal counsel can be difficult to deal with, so you need to know where to pick your battles in the agreement. So, if you need assistance with reviewing the lease strictly from a legal perspective, please see our Verizon Cell Site Lease page at Cell Tower Attorney.
Cell Tower Attorney provides legal services to landowners, both public and private regarding all legal issues regarding cell tower leases. Our goal is to provide sound legal advice on Verizon cell tower leases including lease negotiation, re-negotiation, landlord tenant disputes, litigation support, environmental due diligence, as well as general lease administration.

We respectfully request that you not contact us to see if we can help you get a Verizon cell tower on your property, as we can't market your property to Verizon and we can't give you contact information for their lease departments.
