Enter the sum of all rent payments ($) and the total contract term length (months) into the calculator to determine the Straight Line Rent. 

Straight Line Rent Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Straight Line Rent. 

Rsl = SRP / CL 

  • Where Rsl is the Straight Line Rent ($/month)
  • SRP is the sum of all rent payments ($) 
  • CL is the total contract term length (months) 

How to Calculate Straight Line Rent?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Straight Line Rent.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the sum of all rent payments ($). In this example, the sum of all rent payments ($) is given as 20000.
  2. Next, determine the total contract term length (months). For this problem, the total contract term length (months) is given as 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Straight Line Rent using the equation above: 

Rsl = SRP / CL 

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Rsl = 20000 / 10  = 2000 ($/month)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

sum of all rent payments ($) = 30000

total contract term length (months) = 12

Entering these values and solving gives:

Rsl = 30000 / 12  = 2500 ($/month)
