ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS CODE NOTICES

Whether you receive a Code Notice from a telecoms operator seeking your agreement to have Code Rights conferred upon it over your land, or you wish to renew or terminate an existing Code Agreement, we can act on your behalf to review or prepare and serve the relevant statutory notices and act on your behalf in negotiating terms with the telecoms operator and if necessary issue or defend applications made to the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber).

INCOME RIGHTS AGREEMENTS

We have expertise in negotiating income rights agreements on behalf of third party infrastructure providers with large estate owners to enable the infrastructure provider to manage and receive the income stream generated from occupation of the sites by Telecoms Operators.

WAYLEAVES

Whether you are a landlord or tenant, we can negotiate wayleaves on your behalf with the Code Operator to secure the provision of fixed line broadband services for your property whilst protecting your property interests.

OFCOM APPLICATIONS TO OBTAIN CODE POWERS

We have experience in acting for telecoms infrastructure providers and fixed line broadband providers in preparing and submitting formal applications to obtain a direction from OFCOM to obtain Code Operator status pursuant to s.106 of the Communications Act 2003.

SECURING VACANT POSSESSION OF SITES

We regularly act for land owners seeking to gain vacant possession of telecoms sites earmarked for redevelopment and can advise on the statutory protection afforded to Telecoms Operators by the Telecoms Code and act on your behalf in the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) to seek an Order for Removal of the telecoms apparatus or to negotiate a “lift and shift” of their apparatus formally encapsulated in an interim rights agreement with the operator to allow development schemes to proceed unhindered.
