Telecommunications & Phone Masts

Our specialist team of lawyers acts for landlords, landowners and property owners in respect of renting their premises to telecom operators.

Legal advice for landlords and landowners in relation to telecommunications masts

The law relating to mobile phone masts and telecommunications sites is complex and requires specialist legal advice if landowners are to maximise the income from their sites and avoid potentially serious problems as a consequence of renting their premises to mobile phone operators.

Shulmans’ telecoms team acts exclusively for landlords and will provide independent professional advice by solicitors with many years’ experience in the telecommunications market. We are now one of the principal firms in the country acting in this field.

We act for a wide range of telecoms mast landlords, from individuals to national property companies. We represent property investors and occupiers, local authorities, housing associations, farmers and estates and sports clubs to name a few. In short, anyone with a telecoms mast situated on their land.

Our recent telecoms clients include:

  • Bournville Village Trust;
  • Cumbria County Council;
  • Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council;
  • Hereford & Worcester Fire Authority;
  • Northern Trust;
  • PegasusLife;
  • Stockport Rugby Union Football Club.

This is what some of our clients have said about us:

“Shulmans provided prompt, professional service and advice throughout the process.  This meant we were confident of a successful outcome enabling us to pursue our plans for this significant retirement village proposal.” - Carol Priest, Director of Estates, Bournville Village Trust

"Very proactive and strategically astute - used their expertise and experience to reach a time-efficient resolution”. - Richard Mortimer, Development Director, PegasusLife

“Shulmans’ telecoms team are clearly experts in their field. They provided a first-class service with practical advice and a clear case plan. They then secured the desired outcome with the minimum of delay. I would certainly instruct them again or recommend them to others”. - Nigel Snape, Head of Legal Services (Clerk & Monitoring Officer), Hereford & Worcester Fire Authority

We can deal with any issues you may be having with a telecoms mast. Some examples of these are set out below. You can also view a number of articles that the team has published over the past few years.
