Landlords couldn't care less about the health of their tenants. If they collapse, at least they paid top dollars whilst they had any cash/ credit lines to draw from.
The problem that landlords face now is a very uncertain future thanks to late stage capitalism, people living longer and low local birth rates. Hong Kong will continue its decline into another aging Asian city. Immigration will not be able to help as we are at the tail end of capitalism and will be in a state of flux (i.e. receission) indefinitely ... or until the powers that be admit it.
Being a landlord is possibly the worst business to be in over the next two decades.
but from the posts in this channel it doesn't seem so.. everyone are still waiting for the chance to grab their money making property once this SARS number 2 recovers...
