One of the people who fell for this cell site leasing ploy were not naïve in the ways of business. In fact they were very savvy real estate developers who assumed they could trust the charming young woman who was handling things for the cellular tower company. They signed a very detailed document that locked them into a deal where the carrier could impose their will on the owners. I am sure that Ms. Charming got a nice fat financial incentive for taking advantage of this overly trusting property owner. This mistake cost them over 趚ꯠᇸ dollars in lost revenue, over a thirty year period, that they would have gotten if they were properly informed prior to executing their cell tower lease.
In sum, the rationale underlying the Seller's demand for LOI, can essentially be summed up as follows: 1) That giving an LOI to a seller by a prospective buyer, is an indication that the buyer is "serious" and willing to purchase; 2) That use of the LOI is the usual way of initiating a purchasing proposal by a buyer, and is the right and proper way to go; and 3) That there is nothing for anyone in the deal to lose by a prospective buyer signing an LOI.
