Formula to determine the Rent Fee
Value Scores and Formulas for Calculation, indicated in the Ruling of the Law for the Control and Regulation of Rent.

The Rent Fee is determined by a formula indicated in the Article 23 of the ruling which contains the following values: RF=(VH/12) x %AR

RF: Value of the Rent Fee.
VH: Value of the Home.
%AR: Percentage of Annual Rentability, which must oscillate between 3% for multi renter or 5% for the single renter (Article 23 of the Ruling for the Law of Rent Control).

AVP: Actual Value of the Property.
MCI: Meters squared that con be sold in the Property.
MS: Meters squared in the Property.

The Actual Value of the Property is calculated with the formula: AVP=RV x (1-K/100) x SV x GV

RV: Reposition Value.
K: Depreciation of the property, found in a table called “Condition of the Property” in Article 21 of the Ruling.
SV: Coefficient of Seismic Vulnerability found in article 22 of the Ruling.
GV: Geographical Variation, found in a table called “Coefficient of Geographical Variation” found in Article 24 of the Ruling.

The Value of Reposition is determined in the following formula: VR= VAC x MCI
VAC: Value of Annual Costs of square meter of construction based on the type of construction of the property, which is found on the table called “Types of Single and Multifamily Homes” found in Article 20 of the Ruling.
MCI: Total Square Meters of the Property.
In the cases in which the renter acquires the property of the home in accordance with the methods found in the present resolution and the Law regulating the matter, and pretend to sell it are forced to do so under the same circumstances and calculations.
