Indeed. The local super wealthy family near me are rolling in cash because they own lots of commercial property and make shed loads from rent - theres quitre a turnover as many small businesses give it a go and find exorbitant rents make it impossible to make a living on anything other than very high margin / turnover situation. The building owners do not care as another sucker will be along sooner or later and the hefty cash stream will flow again.

Then again no better for residential rents, they are ludicrously high, we really need a return to fair rent legislation
