Methods for apportioning rent

This practice note explains three methods of apportioning rent that has been paid in advance:

  • Law Society's method (standard formula).
  • Annual method (surveyors' method).
  • Quarterly method.

The note illustrates how each method works in relation to the apportionment of rent on a grant of a lease, on an assignment of a lease and on a sale of the reversion.
