Sharing a house and need an easy way to work out everyone’s share of the rent, power and other bills? Rental calculator site Split The Rent has revamped itself and launched a site better suited to helping Australian renters stop the squabbling.
We covered the original version of Split The Rent back in February. While it’s a helpful site, the original version had a US-centric vision of the world, with rents assumed to be monthly and dates in American formats. The new local site offers weekly and fortnightly rent options, and defaults to the more familiar dd/mm/yy format. (That happened in part because the site’s founder moved to Melbourne.)
The site has also tweaked some of its other options, including the ability to add recurring bills and a furniture calculator to work out how much a shared piece of furniture is worth after you’ve all been using it for a few years. Split The Rent is free to use.
