Telecoms & Renewables
We have more than 30 years experience of dealing with telecommunication sites on behalf of landowners and regularly handle or advise on:
- Negotiation of lease terms
- Rent reviews
- Lease renewals
- Decommissioning of existing sites
- Landlord and Tenant matters
However, on 28th December 2017 the new Electronic Communications Code came into force, introducing a fundamentally different regime governing the relationship between telecom operators and those on whose property their apparatus is, or is proposed to be, located. The Code provides telecom operators with a right to apply to the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) to have an agreement imposed on the landowner, if the parties fail to agree terms.
The new Code has potentially serious implications for landowners and we are closely monitoring decisions of the Upper Tribunal in order to provide best and up to date advice to clients affected.
In the ever-changing world of renewable energy, our team can provide you with advice and represent you on the following:
- Solar / PV
- Wind turbines
- Ground source heat pumps
- Battery and gas generation sites
Our services range from planning, lease negotiations, exclusivity agreements, conditional contracts and financing with the objective of maximising income with the minimum of disruption from renewable energy projects.
