On an important side note regarding the article:
"Plus the pass through component allows owners to pass expenses on to tenants."
Many landlords don't care and don't go to the effort of challenging government determined values and keeping costs contained (as if it were their money). That is morally wrong. It's pretty simple from a pretty well known Authority, "Love one another" and "Love your neighbor as yourself". That means our tenants, too. We can do better for them. Mike Brady
