Tips for Renegotiating Your Rent During the COVID-19 Outbreak - Pam Pester
Given the unprecedented and almost total shutdown of businesses due to COVID-19, many tenants will be unable to make their rental payments in the next several months. Here in Tampa Bay, we are seeing a willingness on the part of some landlords to negotiate short term reductions and in some cases, abatement of rent. Much of the landlord’s ability to negotiate will depend on the landlord’s own debt burden if any and its ability to renegotiate with its lender. Publix, the largest employee-owned company in the US owns many of its shopping centers outright. Publix recently announced that it will offer two months of rent abatement to tenants in its shopping centers who have closed due to COVID-19. Most commercial landlords do not own their properties outright and they will thus be limited by existing loan covenants and their own lender’s willingness to negotiate.

100% Zero Contact Mortgages are Now Being Utilized
So many real estate procedures are already online so it only makes sense to digitize it all the way. Now, you can get a mortgage, shop for rates, apply online, send all documents electronically and even sign digitally. Even when a notary is required, there are several ways many lenders are complying. We have unique ways of setting up Zoom meetings and online meetings to proof identity so that you can still close on a home without ever having to come in contact with another human being.
Now, of course this is not the norm and we won't have to do this forever but it does give some peace of mind to those that just can't leave their homes until it's time to move. We can electronically transfer all proof of income documents, signatures and the like so everyone, including those in the industry stay safe.
