The process of selling the mast site to APWireless was painless. Ian dealt with everything well and kept us up to date with how everything was progressing during the legal phase and answered any queries that we had. From agreeing to sell and reaching completion it was just over two months which was what we required. Thank you to Ian and APWireless and I would not hesitate to recommend them in the future.

Subject to the new Electronic Communication Code legislation ‘no-network assumption’ my client was offered very little by the operator for a new agreement. We subsequently offered the freehold of the site to the open market and my client decided to accept the offer from APW. A month after a smooth completion of the sale, the operator issued my client a Section 26 notice to either renew at their drastically reduced rental offer or have to fight them in court, so my client was pleased they chose to sell.

I found you and your team, commercial and transparent during the course of the negotiation process; pragmatic and patient when it came to your due diligence and prompt in your payment once the documentation and due diligence had been settled.

My thoughts about the process and APWireless are positive, good to deal with, got things moving along and kept us in the loop, at all times.

Very pleased with the completion of the sale of the mast. I would like to add it has been a pleasure doing business with APWireless, always so polite and professional and would certainly recommend your company to anyone. A job well done. I wish you a happy Christmas and a good New Year, and once again thanks for everything.

I had met Rob several years ago when the mast was first installed so was more than happy to hear what he had to offer now he was working for APWireless. I felt their offer of a known lump sum represented a far better option for me than the uncertainty of a rent that could drop or disappear altogether in the future. The transaction went smoothly and quickly and I would certainly work with them again in the future should the opportunity present itself.

I would like to thank Emyr for his invaluable support and advice in the recent negotiations regarding the sales of the mobile masts on my property. I very much appreciated his frank and no-nonsense approach; here was no “hard sell”, which would certainly not have gone down well with me. It was easy to communicate with Emyr and he always replied quickly to any enquiries that I had. His conduct was professional but also personal at all times. Thank you again for all the help.

Dafydd Roberts


I commend Tony having just completed a lease transaction on behalf of a client with him. Tony was immensely helpful explaining every detail from discussing the site initially through to making the offer, agreeing Heads of Terms, instructing solicitors through to completion of the lease. He made the process transparent, provided regular updates throughout and ensured the matter kept progressing. I would highly recommend Tony and APWireless when considering the disposal of telecom mast sites.

I recently dealt with Lydia during the sale of my property to APWireless. Lydia was knowledgeable about the process and I found her to be very professional, prompt and thorough. She answered any of the questions I had, which helped me to conclude that the sale to APWireless was the right decision. The sale was also completed much quicker than I had envisaged. Any communications I had with Lydia both verbally and written were clear, business like and pleasant; I would like to thank her for her assistance.

Anyone looking to renew their telecoms mast lease, look no further. APWireless, in particular Tom, were excellent. The whole process from initial conversations to finalising the actual lease deal agreement were dealt with in a very professional and timely manner. We would not hesitate to recommend APWireless to anyone.

We would like to thank Ian very much for all the help he gave us in regards the telephone mast sale recently. This was all new to us and his help took a lot of the stress and worry away from us. It was very much appreciated how simple he made everything.

We acted for a local client in the sale of a mast site to APWireless. On behalf of APWireless, Emyr made a very fair offer to our clients for the purchase of the property, in competition with other interested parties, which we were happy to recommend. The sales process went extremely smoothly and completed within just four weeks.

I think we are all done and dusted on the lease purchase at the bakers wood site. Many thanks to Tony for the speedy purchase and getting the paperwork done in time to beat the budget day announcements. My team and APWireless team seemed to work very well. I look forward to meeting Tony and the APWireless team on their new site one day after lock down.

Simon Upton

SWG Farms Ltd

The APWireless representative kept an non-pressured open and informative channel of communications from initial site visit, through to closure of a deal. The relaxed but open nature of the dialogue allowed a better understanding of the options offered and communications industry as a whole. A refreshing change from past experiences.

RG, Director – SWG Farms Ltd.


I act as Agent for a number of site owners throughout the North East of England and Scotland. The sale or long lease of a site is not necessarily the answer for all clients but we have a responsibility to ensure that they are aware of all the options available to them which will enable them to make a fully informed decision about the future options for their mast site. On that basis I have regular conversations with Tom relating to clients sites. Tom always responds promptly and with the integrity I have come to expect from him. We have recently concluded another long lease of a site. As always there were a number of unexpected issues to iron out along the way but Tom stuck diligently to the case and guided it successfully to completion. My clients were delighted with the outcome and I have no doubt, in these times of telecommunications mast turmoil, that I will be having further conversations with Tom and APWireless on other sites and will be very happy to do so.

I have found Tom of APWireless charming ,efficient and easy to deal with. The agreed transaction for The Telecom Mast Site proceeded on time thanks to his determination and good sense. We are very grateful to him.

Very Good! It was by chance that a letter arrived from APWireless at the same time my lease was being renewed. Following a talk with APWireless, a significantly better offer was brokered. This did not bode well with the previous lease holder but with professionalism, fairness and empathy I felt more at ease to complete the sale to APWireless. Although I took a lower sale value from them, I felt that their integrity and support would help me in the future. The support that I have had from the APWireless team has been second to none and I hope that it is the start of a long term working relationship. The lump sum that I have received will not replace the rental value that I had received over the past but it has meant that it will allow investment in expanding the farm for the next generation.


Watkins Wood, Clatter Park

With our lease with Arqiva having expired and the impact of the new Code Legislation seeing us face a considerable rent reduction at renewal, the approach from APWireless for the mast could not have been better timed. The mast had always been a nice income for little or no hassle. Sadly that was about to change with the renewal looming. From his first call, discussions with Emyr have been open and two-way. Taking on board our concerns, he was able to take away the time and cost burden of dealing with the renewal and release a guaranteed lump sum for us to re-invest in the farm going forward. We would strongly recommend APWireless, especially in today’s increasingly uncertain world.

I would like to thank Jess for her assistance in the relatively smooth completion of this transaction, whenever we have approached a hurdle, she has guided me through the processes with kindness and professionalism. Most importantly for me, I always felt I could trust her, which for me is essential. I hope she comes through these disturbing times and retains her lovely sense of humour and pragmatism.

I had received several letters from APW over recent years, but it was not until it became clear to me that I faced the possibility of a severe drop in rent upon the next Lease negotiation in 4 years’ time that I finally agreed to meet with Lydia. She explained the likely scenario in that case, and what APW were prepared to offer for either a freehold or leasehold purchase. I also took advice from an agent. A freehold sale suited me best, as my site was at the edge of the farm and adjacent to a public highway, so no rights of way were required across the farm – i.e. a clean break. Price negotiations ensued and finally we agreed what I consider to be a satisfactory deal. Legal details were sorted efficiently, so we were able to complete promptly. Lydia was courteous and professional throughout, as was her colleague on the legal side. I can recommend at least entering into discussions with Lydia.

Martin Trentham

Couston Farm

We recently renewed the leases for both telecoms masts on our land; One of these was renewed after the New Code was introduced and is based on the rent reducing by approx.70% over the next few years. APWireless provided a robust offer for both sites despite the risk of these merging which meant we could re-invest the money into matters which appeal to us. Tom was excellent all the way through the process and we’ll keep in touch.

Bob Craig

It was urgent for me to settle what was happening with my telecoms mast site. When Chris from APWireless came along with the proposal to sell them a long lease it was the perfect solution for me.

Wayne Lodge

We had two masts which were coming up for negotiations under the new code. Fortunately Ian from APWireless approached us and explained the benefit of selling the masts to them. We decided to sell the site to them for a lump sum and Ian and his office were very straight forward and easy to deal with. I would recommend anyone with telecom masts to approach APWireless especially in view of the new Electronic Communications Code that is depressing rents considerably.

Tony Ashton

It has been a pleasure doing business with Jess at APWireless. From our first conversation she was very open to questions and as to reasons why the company is looking to purchase mobile phone masts. She has been professional, always polite and patient when things got held up our end. Whatever happens to the masts in the future we are happy as regards the outcome of our deal with APWireless.

My mast lease was due to expire, and the operator advised they would be in touch to enter into a new terms pursuant to the Electronic Communications Code. I was aware of the literature around vast reductions in rent and decided that wasn’t an argument I was willing to have. Instead I opted to taking control of our finances and agreed a great deal with APWireless, which concluded in timely non-contentious manner.

Richard Jeffrey – J T Jeffrey & Sons

West Berwick Farm

I dealt with Tony at APW for just over 12 months’ to sell two mast sites on behalf of clients who were marketing the entirety of their farm at the time. I would characterise the process as informative, consistent, courteous and professional throughout. Every promise made was backed up by action. Despite many delays and uncertainties on our side of the deal, there was no pressure applied or artificial deadlines inferred. From beginning to end this was a pleasant transaction that inspired confidence in the client and delivered a good and fair result to all.

Adam Winthrop, Director – WBW Surveyors

Nicholl’s Farm

The operator have recently served a valid notice to terminate their lease of our site after some 25 years. I am slightly surprised that a site in this important position has reached the end of its useful life. Maybe we would have been better off if we had sold the site to APWireless a few years ago and bailed out of a rent that is now being terminated. It’s one of those things that can-not be returned to after the event. All the best in your further acquisitions. Best of luck in the future.

Simon Blandford – Nicholl’s Farm

I got to know Linda when renewing my telephone mast rental. I found her to be a very pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient person. She was most helpful and did a very efficient piece of business for me. I would like to thank APWireless and Linda for the politeness and professionalism they showed to me. Yours sincerely.

Joseph Patterson


I was approached by Linda of APWireless who explained the benefits of selling my telecoms mast on. I was able to get a guaranteed sum up front, and this was a much better option than the new rent being offered by the operator.

County Antrim

Bogglelhill and Ashfield

Linda at APWireless made what could have been a complicated process a lot easier. Always available when issues arose. Given the threat to our rent under the new code law, we have made the best decision to take a lump sum and would urge anyone with an expired lease to contact APW for advice.

Gareth English

Prebendal Farm

We met with Tony who arranged to visit us at home and chat through the process. He provided a range of options and we opted for a straight forward purchase of the site. The whole process went through without any issues and was completed quickly. Tony was very professional, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending working with APWireless.

S.H & B Brown – Woodside Farm


We found the service excellent, the organisation of the sale was straightforward and we were kept informed throughout the process. I would certainly recommend APWireless to others.

Paul Summerbell

Eland Hall Farm

When we were first approached by Tom Gannucci of APWireless to either lease or purchase our telephone mast site, we looked in to the company background and track record. After discussing it within the family and with our agent we decided to go with the lease as the site was not really suitable to sell freehold. At the time we were concerned at being offered a peppercorn rent due to the new telecommunications act from the current operator. When we accepted the offer we agreed a completion date which was met without delay. As things stand at the moment we would be happy to recommend APWireless to others that are coming to the end of their current agreement.

Gordon Meek – GR & SK MEEK

Thorns Farm

We had spoken with Ollie from APWireless for a number of years, and in 2018 we got in touch after receiving rather hostile communication from the operator seeking a new code agreement at a fraction of the current rental level. In addition to this we also had a need for additional funds, and as such the conditions were right for us having a sensible conversation regarding selling the lease to APW. From the point of re-engaging with Ollie, we found him to be very straightforward to deal and acted with great integrity. We were very happy with how everything worked out and would recommend anyone with a lease and especially those with a lease reaching expiry to reach out to APWireless and see what they can offer.

Dear Kevin, Just a note on behalf of myself and my Client to thank you for supervising this purchase through to completion. We really appreciate your patience in this matter. Best wishes.

Marley Thatch Farm

I would like to say a big thank you for your patience and friendly professional manner with which you negotiated a deal with us. Which, after two years of trying to deal with the operator for a new lease on our mast was very refreshing. The lump sum which we have received has given us peace of mind as costs were starting to escalate with no guaranteed outcome as well as a means to reduce borrowings at a uncertain time for future farm profits. Thanks once again!

Richard Buckpitt

Dalrulzion Farm

We were invited to visit APWireless at the Royal Highland Show in respect of the telecoms mast that we have on our land. We met there with Tracy who arranged to visit us at home and chat through the process. We opted for a straight forward purchase of the site which went through without any issues. The whole process was just as explained by Tracy, who was a pleasure to deal with, very professional and efficient. We would have no hesitation in recommending working with APWireless.

D & E Stewart

Smeafield Farm

Since the introduction of new legislation relating to telecoms masts I felt the time was right to sell my mast site to APWireless who removed the risks associated with the new legislation. The transaction went quickly and hassle free.

S Reay

Farm Land Off Ricknall Lane

I took advice from a number of professionals with regards to the change in the telecommunications legislation and what stood out the most was the general opinion that rents will reduce as a result of the New Code. The only uncertainty was by how much, therefore, I drew the conclusion that this was the best time for me to extract as much as possible out of my mast. Telecoms agreements appear to have become a more complex industry since my mast was installed. APWireless’s professional guidance made the whole process easy and offered reassurance for the future. Their expertise put me in a better position to extract the best value from my telecoms asset which in turn means I can use the capital for other projects.

Christopher Thomson

High West House Farm

Our mast lease was due to expire in a years’ time and I’m aware of the Governments strategy to reduce rents through the new legislation, so it made sense to us to sell the lease now and invest the money into our business. Tom was a pleasure to deal with and we’re pleased he popped in to explain matters in person.

William Robson – W Robson Farm Ltd
Bishop Auckland

Lochhill Farm View

We’ve been speaking to Tom for a few years and after much deliberation felt the time was right for us both. We are aware of the new legislation and Governments intention to reduce rents and while this was a factor it wasn’t the only factor. We are at the point in our lives where we welcome a lump sum we can put to better use than our rent per year. Having concluded the deal there’s no doubt it was the correct decision and we are grateful for the way Tom kept in touch in a friendly manner without pushing us.

David Chalmers

Haggerston Barns

We decided the time was right to release the capital in our farm mast for which the APWireless business model provided the opportunity. From a business perspective a large capital sum proved more effective than a rent that was consistently under threat of reduction. Tom was extremely helpful throughout the disposal process, which only took 45 days to complete from agreeing terms. 6 months on we have no regrets.

Robert Gladstone, Director – H O Short & Son Ltd

Straight forward dealing. Tracy pushed all the way to make the transaction happen. Professional and very pleasant to deal with.

Dealing with APWireless has been smooth and trouble free. We have had clarity and transparency in all matters. Their representative Mr Emyr Evans was very helpful at all times and facilitated the agreement with expediency and was professional at all times. It also helped that he was a Welsh speaking Welshman with a very good understanding of agricultural matters. I would highly recommend them to any landowner contemplating a long term telecom mast lease sale.

Following a family meeting with Tom we took professional advice, discussed the merits of the new telecoms code and proceeded with the sale of our mast. This completed with relative ease and the family are delighted with the outcome. Tom was a pleasure to deal with and ensured everything ran smoothly. Many thanks!

Pat Wilson – J and I Wilson and Sons

Northleaze Farm

My experience with APWireless was very favourable, they offered a good price & quick closure . The reason I decided to sell was being in our late 60s I thought the money would be better in my savings for my use than getting so much a year, and there was always the risk that the site could be closed and I would lose my rental income. It was very helpful Ian coming to us and talking it over with no pressure. Altogether very pleased with the outcome and the short time it all took, very efficient from start to finish.

David C Hayne

H J Jones and Son

As a business we deal with so many companies and found that customer services can be lacking in many areas but with APWireless we can honestly say this was not the case.
Our representative Ian Humphrey has been very respectful to us, happy to communicate on a personal level and always willing to answer any questions we have had in a detailed manner.
The transaction went very smoothly on their side and we would be very happy to do business with them again.

Simon White

Calcott Hall Farm

Having completed a deal with APWireless less than a year ago, completely out of the blue, Vodafone have terminated their lease and will be removing their mast. I had thought that the mast was very secure but it just shows what an uncertain industry telecommunications can be and now, in hindsight, I’m very glad that I made the decision to sell the rental stream to APWireless when I did.

Peter McTurk – Calcott Hall Farm

I would certainly recommend this course of action to any company or individual in a similar position.

After responding to a letter from APWireless advising of their presence at the Royal Highland Show I had a meeting with Tom Gannucci and decided to progress matters. This proved to be great timing as I had been considering investing in a renewables system, which includes a Biomass boiler for my farm house and outbuildings. Dealing with Tom was a pleasure, it only took 7 weeks to complete matters and consequently fund a profitable investment over the next 20 years which will outperform my telecoms lease.
