There are attorneys specializing in this. They will be able to answer all your answers and also give you good advice what your contract should look like. There should, for example, be a paragraph of what would happen if the IP desert the site etc. I know that there are "standard" contract that can be used and maybe should be used for these things.

Good luck,

### You will  also have to consider.... what happens if your tower falls over for whatever reason.   YOU  could easily be liable
for any lost revenue.   Now YOU owe them a ton of $$$.   They will also want 24-7-365 access to your property.... which also implies you will have to provide clear
roadways, parking space for multiple vehicles, snow cleared 24-7-365.  They may well  want to install a UPS setup at some point...
and or  an emergency generator.   Emergency generators are typ tested once per month.    Where will the fuel be stored.   Think of every possible worse case scenario 
possible.   A local ham was offered a similar deal a few years ago.  I advised him to reject the offer.
