Agreement Negotiations

We seek to achieve preferential terms for all our clients to maximise the value of your property assets.

The new Digital Economy Act and changes to the Electronic Communications Code give operators far reaching rights. Do not allow any operator on to your property without taking professional advice. Never accept the operator’s opinion and interpretation of the new Code: take specialist advice to achieve strong commercial terms.

Telecoms Site Management

We deal with every aspect of site management to ensure your property interest is fully protected. As a direct result of the new Digital Economy Act and changes to the Electronic Communications Code, specialist advice is imperative to ensure your obligations are being met.

s3

Phone Mast Lease Audits and Site Inspections

By undertaking an audit of existing agreements and site inspections, we are able to detail any outstanding issues such as rent reviews or lease terms that have expired. It will also highlight any site sharing arrangements and operator breaches.

The new Digital Economy Act and changes to the Electronic Communications Code mean there will be transitional arrangements for many years to come, and understanding which rules your agreement(s) fall under is critical.

s4

Valuations

 

 

We are RICS accredited valuers offering Red Book valuations, Charity Commission valuations, and sale and purchase appraisals and valuations.

We are specialists with a clear understanding of the old and new telecoms valuation rules created as a result of the new Digital Economy Act and changes to the Electronic Communications Code.

Despite what you might hear from the operators, rents remain strong in many regions.

s7

Mobile Phone Mast Rent Reviews

As specialists with a clear understanding of the old and new telecoms valuation rules and a comprehensive database of rental comparables, we can ensure our clients receive the best rents in the market.

Where rental increases are linked to the retail price index, we will undertake the necessary calculation and negotiation.

We will recover any outstanding amounts plus interest where possible and ensure that any future payments are at the reviewed level and received promptly.

s9

Redevelopments

You may need to remove an operator from your property, or relocate them to a different location on your development site. We are experts at formulating cost effective strategies for achieving vacant possession on time and in budget.

Depending when your lease was granted and whether it’s protected by other legislation, the termination procedures a landlord must follow may differ quite significantly, and it is important that developers and their advisers fully understand the timelines and risks involved with removing a licensed code operator from a property in order to minimise potential delays and costs to their programme.

s3

Lease Variations and Renewals

We understand that each telecoms agreement is unique but our experience ensures we can confidently assess each individual circumstance and represent a landlord client robustly, regardless of the arguments an operator’s agent may present over the course of negotiations. The recent legislative changes make it even more important that landlords do not take communications from the mobile operators regarding their property at face value and instead seek professional guidance to protect their position.

s5

Consultancy

 

We are a forward thinking and flexible business capable of complementing existing property and legal teams. Many commercial property professionals fully accept that telecoms is a specialism in its own right and require assistance from time to time. We regularly act for general practice property professionals who have clients with telecoms agreements.

s8

Dilapidations and Site Removals

Telemaster can actively market your property to the various operators across the industry free of charge.
Telemaster is in contact with a number of investors and for certain landlords now is a prime time to consider the sale of mast sites. We can provide advice on capital values and whether freehold disposal is right for you.

s11

Upgrades

Operators continually upgrade their equipment on existing sites and increasingly many upgrades do not involve the traditional method of installing additional antennas and dishes. Often their drawings do not fully reflect the extent of the upgrade or its purpose, i.e. adding another operator.

The new Digital Economy Act and changes to the Electronic Communications Code have varied operators’ rights to upgrade their equipment but you should never accept their interpretation of what they are permitted to do, but instead seek advice to ensure you maximise the annual rent and avoid inadvertently granting them additional rights to which they are not entitled under the site agreement.

s10

Dispute Resolution

Telemaster is able to advise landlords whether their case is strong enough to merit taking the matter to Court, or applying to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for the appointment of an Arbitrator or Independent Expert. Allison Mullen, a director of Telemaster, is a member of the President’s panel of Independent Experts at the RICS and a registered RICS Valuer with 20 years’ experience in the sector.

s5

Site Sharing

The emergence of new technology and evolving partnership agreements between the competing operators mean it is not always clear whether the mobile phone operators are sharing sites or indeed sharing frequencies.

The operators have been granted rights to share sites with other licensed operators under the new Digital Economy Act and changes to the Electronic Communications Code but do not simply accept their interpretation of the new legislation in relation to your property and site agreement; seek advice on what they can and cannot do so you take advantage of any opportunity which arises to increase rental.

s2

Investment

Telemaster is in contact with a number of investors, and for some landlords now may be the prime time to consider the sale of your leasehold interest. We provide advice on capital values and whether freehold disposal is right for you.
