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?

Hi, @AuntJewel,

 

We have no information on third party groups looking to lease land for cell towers, but we can provide you with information on how to make a request to AT&T if your parents are interested or might be interested in selling, renting, or leasing land for this purpose. Their request should be emailed to AT&T Mobility at Releaseadmin@att.com.

 

The email should include:

 

  • Their name, number, address, and email address
  • Property address, city, state, and county
  • Property size (acres or square feet)
  • Latitude/longitude of the site (if available)
  • Map or survey (if available)

If your parents decide to do this, they'll receive an email confirmation that the request has been received but will not receive any further responses unless there's an interest in their property site.

 

Have a great week!

Hello, 

I was wondering if the email address  (Edited as per community guidelines) is still correct for making a request for cell towers to be placed on your property?

Thank you, 

David

The information that I shared in my post was not personal.  I was just a repeat from James, AT&T Community Specialist.

Thank you for that information Samantha. How do I create a Spinklr account?  There's not an option to create one.

Thank you,

There's no need to create a Sprinklr account just to submit a request to lease a portion of your land for cell tower installation, @DDelahoussaye!

 

While the email address you mentioned in your initial reply is a great place to begin, we invite landowners to also follow these instructions to get started. Simply select Common Actions followed by Submit Your Locations for Lease.

 

Give this a try and let us know how this helped!
