Fact: Bronx Small Businesses face a Crisis to survive caused by exorbitant rent increases and unfair lease terms. Last year, the Bronx alone led all the boroughs with the highest increase (30%) in small business court evictions with over 1,200 businesses ordered closed.
Finally, City Hall is looking at proposals to save businesses from these sky high rent increases.
Attend this Forum and find out if any of these proposals will:
Stop the growing trend of illegal extortion of cash by unscrupulous landlords
Stop the short term leases which prevent all growth and planning for the future of small businesses
Give rights to business owners to negotiate fair lease terms
Stop the rent gouging
