Tim's comments on above article:
I like many things about the above article. One thing I don't care for is the title. Landlords aren't getting tough on anyone. They are paying attention to an important asset and, hopefully, starting to treat this item in their portfolio like every other business has always operated or should have.
A friend of mine who deals with landlords from a consulting perspective recently told me his biggest challenge is educating the landowners. All many of them want to know is how much cash rent should I get.
Obviously, there is much more to the equation than the amount of cash rent.
Knowledge is king. If you need help, there is certainly no shame in asking for it. No offense to the folks at the coffee shop, but that probably isn't the source of ideal information.
