​​​​​​​LeaseTalk has initiated a national survey to study the impacts of COVID-19 on business tenants and its effect on commercial real estate leasing. The survey allows policymakers and the general public to glean a better understanding of COVID-19’s impact on U.S. businesses during the pandemic, as well as evaluate their association with industry trends and related issues, like working from home or plans to reduce existing spaces.

”COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on small business revenue. Businesses should not only look to utilize e-commerce tools to increase alternative revenues but also figure out ways to reduce expenses as well,” says Lawrence Shay, CEO of Impactio, Inc., whose research team co-developed the survey. “The survey enables the general public and policymakers to evaluate business owners’ commercial rent budget abatement needs during the pandemic.”

The survey can be completed within five to 10 minutes and asks a few questions related to commercial real estate:

  • type of business

  • current rental spaces

  • utilization rate

  • lease data information of current rental spaces

  • current and future plans of letting employees work remotely

  • whether respondents are interested in connecting with other local tenants with the same interests. 

Participants must be at least 18 years old, live in the U.S. and can represent a U.S. business to respond to the information.

Developed by the research team from Impactio Inc., a San Francisco-based data analytics company, and, the anonymous, online survey is aimed at helping business tenants impacted by COVID-19 and providing them with networks and resources to build their own local tenant community through an online location-based forum. Together, tenants can discuss related legal or non-legal issues with other tenants, issues; those sharing the same building or property can also explore ways to share the cost of legal consultation if required.

LeaseTalk is a community-driven platform for business tenants, allowing them to build communities and collectively share information and identify cost-saving opportunities in lease-related issues.
