Samuel Lear answers the EG Legal Q&A on code rights

Samuel Lear, Associate, and Jonathan Wills, Barrister at Landmark Chambers, field Telecoms Code questions in the light of a recent Supreme Court decision.

They answer the following questions for EG:

  • Does a telecoms operator, who has electronic communications apparatus on my land, have the right to seek new rights and/or to modify existing rights which are documented in a subsisting agreement made under an earlier version of the Electronic Communications Code?
  • I am a site provider and have a lease (protected under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954) with an operator where the contractual term is about to come to an end. Is the operator able to rely on the procedure under Part 5 of the Electronic Communications Code to renew its existing rights?
