Most companies use fixed or wireless telecommunications equipment (z.B.

The Government recognises the importance of digital communications networks to the social and economic well-being of the United Kingdom. As a result, agreements are reached between implementing providers and communication network providers against a specific legal framework to support the use of digital communications. “the amount which, at the time of the valuation of the market value, would be paid by a willing buyer to a willing seller for the agreement: (a) in the case of an arm length transaction (b) on the basis that the buyer and seller acted prudently and knowingly of the transaction, and (c) on the basis that the transaction was subject to the other provisions of the agreement imposed by the contract.
As with any other duration of a digital communications infrastructure integration agreement, financial conditions should, as far as possible, be agreed by mutual agreement between the parties. However, as in other words, it is important to note that these agreements are based on a legal framework (the code of electronic communications, “code” – as defined in the Communications Act 2003, amended by the Digital Economy Act 2017).

The code defines, among other things, how a court should set the financial conditions for rights under the code (if they cannot be obtained on a voluntary basis and if the court considers it appropriate to impose an agreement). Some agreements on local authority property and property were concluded prior to the introduction of the new code, allowing them to be protected by the Landlords and Tenants Act 1954 (“LTA 1954”). Under these conditions, the courts do not have the power to impose an agreement under the new code.
If an amicable agreement cannot be reached, economic operators must apply to the courts for a new lease under the 1954 LTA. Therefore, the essential terms of the agreement must first be defined, as these will affect the value of the counterparty in the market. The corresponding contractual terms generally reflect current practice in the market in which the property is located. For example, issues such as the duration of the agreement, the frequency of rent revisions (if any) and the parties` maintenance and expense responsibilities can all affect market rent, which is assessed on the basis of the recital rates. Agreements vary depending on the rights sought and the conditions agreed. However, there are a number of sources available that local authorities may find useful when thinking about what should be included in their own agreements.
