Somebody wants to put something on your roof: You say...

Commercial landlords/property management: You are approached by a solar power company or a wireless telecom company that wants to lease space on your roof. Can you list in order of importance (to you and your firm) the issues that you want to be fully informed about and cover point by point in negotiations and any potential lease?

I'd like to get some feedback from the point of view of a person that owns/manages a building and does not have any existing business relationships with wireless telecom companies or other potential tenants of commercial rooftops. What do you care about most? What questions do you have for a potential tenant? How are you concerned about balancing a minimum of disruption for tenants with the potential rent earned from a rooftop site?
Where do you draw the line between aesthetic considerations versus the monthly rental rate?
What kind of liability insurance do you want potential tenants to carry?
