Telecoms

Our real estate telecoms team is one of the few specialist teams in the UK acting solely for landowners.  This enables us to provide robust commercial advice to our clients without conflict.

We advise on the installation and removal of electronic communications equipment from sites including:

Installation:

  • Wayleaves
  • Rooftop leases
  • Greenfield sites
  • Implications of Code Agreements

Removal:

  • Strategy for removal
  • Serving of Code Notices
  • Acting in proceedings for the removal of equipment
  • Negotiating settlements
  • Obtaining possession and removal

The team works with both residential and commercial developers as well as investor clients, occupiers and other landowners.  It is well respected in the industry and has in-depth experience of working with most of the specialist telecoms surveyors.

Recent highlights for the team include acting in Crest Nicholson v Arqiva (2015) on the validity of paragraph 21 Code notices.
