How does AT&T contact prospective land owners to place towers?
My parents have been contacted by a third party claiming they are acting on behalf of AT&T to locate and lease a site for a cellular tower in their area. Their land and home is located in a dead zone, so it’s plausible that AT&T would be looking for a location to place a cell tower. They do own a significant amount of land (30 acres) in an area that is becoming more dense with residents and businesses, so it is also plausible that they would be a good candidate for such a lease. My concern is that I can’t find any information on this third party solicitor and I am suspicious of their proposal. They have provided a contract to my parents and I have a copy of it which we will vet with attorneys, but we are just in the beginning stages of that and I’m curious: What process does AT&T use for this type of contract and is it possible for AT&T to confirm or deny the legitimacy of this claim?
