Mast sites can be valuable assets and investors will pay handsome sums to buy the mast site.
With telecoms rental income potentially in decline, now may be a good time to consider selling your mast and converting your telecoms rental income into a one off capital payment.
As a property owner you are likely to be approached by third parties who offer to purchase either the freehold of your mast site or the income rights to the mast site.
This commonly involves an investor taking a headlease of your mast site in order to buy the rental stream under the telecoms underlease in return for an upfront capital payment.
However there are a number of commercial and legal issues to bear in mind to ensure that you not only sell at market value but also protect the value of your adjoining building and estate.
