How to cope if rents are rising in your neighborhood
November 11, 2011 - Gary J. Wachtel quoted in Crain's NY Business
"Even when a particular location might be able to command a higher rent than a business owner currently pays, landlords sometimes are willing to defer an increase for a year if a tenant is signing a long-term lease, said Gary Wachtel, a lawyer who specializes in real estate.
Also, landlords might be open to keeping rent at the same or lower rates if small business owners are willing to personally guarantee the rent, Mr. Wachtel said. Doing so can offer some reassurance to landlords that even if the business fails, the landlords will still get income for the term of the lease. That strategy obviously can be very risky for entrepreneurs."
