If you have been approached by a Code Operator, or even a telecoms provider that does not benefit from statutory rights, to install and operate electronic communication equipment on your land, Batcheller Monkhouse are able to provide advice from start to finish.

The process may typically start with a ‘multi-skilled visit’ (MSV) where the site is surveyed for suitability in terms of design, access and radio planning. It is imperative to ensure this event is appropriately documented to ensure unintended rights are not conferred to the operator.

Where a proposal is to be sited on your building rather than your land, we can work with your structural engineers to advise on and approve the operators’ design and structural calculations, ensuring your property remains safe and protected from damage.

If there is a viable scheme, Batcheller Monkhouse can negotiate terms appropriate to the circumstances of your case. Did you know that not all lettings are subject to the far-reaching terms of the new Code? There are instances where you may be able to negotiate better terms than you might be led to believe.

Our professionals can also work with your legal advisors to progress a consensual transaction, having now progressed a significant number of both new lettings and lease renewals within and outside of the new Code.

Alternatively, you may wish to resist an approach for equipment on you land or buildings under one of the Statutory grounds, including redevelopment. We are also able to advise on matters where you are being compelled to enter an agreement against your wishes, and we can recommend specialist solicitors to choose from to manage the likely litigation arising.

Please feel free to contact a member of our telecommunications team on the right-hand side to discuss how we can help you.
