Site Acquisition

Site acquisition is an exercise practiced by professional land experts and it involves obtaining interests in land for development purposes on behalf of an individual or a company. In most cases this exercise is done by and for big companies especially telecommunications companies, ministry department and other private re-sellers.

For telecommunications companies to provide coverage, they need to erect towers to broadcast signals. The towers are built on a piece of land and they topple to heights from 30Mtrs or more depending on the signal transmission radius, the target population and the gradient of the land. Wewill get this piece of land from the owner and passing the interests in the land at a fee to another party.


Firstly the we receive the location in the form of coordinates,this helps the us to identify the site required by zeroing in on the exact location where the acquisition is needed. Next we feeds the coordinates in a G.P.S ( Global Positioning System ) which directs them to the area where the mast is to be erect. When we get to the ground wewill do the following ;

Put forward their proposal and negotiate as per the client (telecommunications company etc.) specifications.

Negotiate on the space to be leased out, for instance by 10sqm

Discuss rent payable per month or per year.

Discuss the lease period or the no of years that the agreement between the client and the landowner will run e.g 10 years

Obtain and verify documents which proof ownership of the land in question.

Explain to the landowner (landlord) the merits and demerits of having the mast on his/her land.

Attend to any queries that the landowner might have.

Take panoramic photos of the surrounding areas and get the services available in the area i.e electricity, condition of the road among others.

Obtain the necessary approvals from the local authorities and others.

When we have fulfilled the above, wewill write a site acquisition form ( commonly referred to as an I.D form) which is later forwarded to the client. The I.D form helps the client know what transpired on the ground. These we can call a feedback from the ground. With the I.D form the client can know whether the work was done or not.
If the client is satisfied with the results, what follows is the go ahead where the acquired site is approved. This is followed by the signing of the lease agreement between the client and the landowner thus giving the green-light for construction of the telecommunication mast.
