Telecom Access: 

Telephone,  cable, wireless and other telecommunication service providers require access to residential tower rooftops and to office towers and other commercial buildings to provide services to customers and to operate and expand their networks. Our experience with all aspects of commercial property operation, leasing and servicing has placed us at the forefront as experts in drafting and negotiating the kinds of agreements that building owners need to protect their interests vis-à-vis telecommunication service providers. These agreements deal with insurance and risk management, operations management, security, interference issues, health and safety, and other matters. They constitute a comprehensive document kit. It includes the following documents which are frequently needed by buildings owners and managers:

  • Telecommunication access agreements consistent with CRTC guidelines
  • Rooftop antenna agreements
  • Antenna cellular enhancement agreements
  • Cable services marketing and access agreements
  • Back up generator and uninterrupted power supply agreements
  • Network hub agreements
  • Telecommunications facilities management agreements
  • Specialized leases for data centres, server centres and "telco hotels"
  • Inter premises data line connection agreements
  • Tenant antenna and facilities agreements
  • Neutral Host Distributed Antenna System (DAS) agreement
