If you are a landlord or a property owner and have been approached by a cellular carrier or cell tower developer about putting a cell site on your property, here is the rule for dealing with tower companies or carriers who try and get you to sign a "Letter of Intent"....... DON'T SIGN ANYTHING!!!!!!! Call your counsel or better yet call a qualified wireless consultant that can guide you and fight for your rights and needs. The carriers have experts...why shouldn't you?
We have a saying in our firm that smooth transactions make successful transitions. Basically, if two parties cannot agree on the elements of the LOI, they will probably have a hard time negotiating while dealing with the minutiae of the purchase agreement. Normally, once the key points of the deal are negotiated up front, the rest of the transaction tends to work much more smoothly.
