Vertical Consultants, which represents landowners in negotiations regarding cell-tower lease transactions, has made rent data for different cell-tower markets available on its website through free reports. The Rent Data Reports, available at www.vertical-consultants.com, provide property owners, such as self-storage owners, with current cell-tower rents being paid by telecom companies and tower developers. The companies involved include but are not limited to AT&T, American Tower, SBA, Sprint and Verizon.
The reports provide detailed information, such as the number of cell towers and telecommunications equipment, within a five-mile radius of a property. Information includes the locations of the cell towers and equipment, and the telecom company associated with each tower site. The reports also contain a professional assessment of cell-tower values and the rents paid in the property area on which the report is based.

The company specializes in issues surrounding the wireless-telecom industry, providing property owners with the information they need to make decisions regarding their cell-tower lease agreements.
The company also helps self-storage owners recoup unpaid and underpaid rent from wireless providers. Areas of expertise include telecom-site acquisition and development, lease negotiation, and the legal issues surrounding such transactions.
