I hope that property managers are waking up to the fact that charging unrealistic rent for office space is a thing of the past and are becoming open to re-negotiation as the GFC has seriously disadvantaged businesses in this area. One of the biggest problems for business is meeting their overheads of which a big part is rent. I could imagine that if the property market was made to be more reactive to the economic downturn, a lot less people would have been made redundant and even some companies could have been saved if they were not locked into greedy lease contracts.
