Our advisors provide informed and timely advice to ensure your interests are represented.

The Electronic Communications Code

Navigating complex legislation

The new Electronic Communications Code was brought into law in 2017 with the aim, in part, to encourage cooperation between property owners and mobile operators to rollout an improved mobile network. But instead, it has led to confusion and disputes, hampering the installation of new mast sites.

GSC Grays are closely monitoring the developing application of this complex legislation to ensure we can provide our clients with informed and timely advice. If you own property with a telecoms mast, or if you have received correspondence from a mobile phone operator, our knowledgeable and experienced team can advise you of your rights and guide you through the process of negotiating terms.

Lease renewal & rent reviews

Understanding site provider’s rights

When receiving a request for a new lease, often for a very low rent, it can be tempting to bury your head in the sand and hope the issue goes away. Unfortunately, that will do more harm than good as the Code allows telecoms operators to apply to the courts to impose an agreement on an unwilling landowner. It is important to seek professional advice at an early stage to engage with the operators and protect your position.

The question of how the new Code will affect rents for telecoms sites has been one of the hardest questions to answer. Every site is unique and so there is no ‘one size fits all’ answer, but a number of recent tribunal cases have given some indication of what the impact may be, and new cases are being decided on a regular basis.

As with any new piece of legislation, it can take many years of testing through the courts before it can be properly understood. The Code is still in the early stages of evolution, so GSC Grays are constantly reviewing the outcome of court cases and tailoring advice to suit the relevant situation and the best current understanding of the legislation. We can help you to negotiate this very complex area of law to ensure that your interests are protected.
