When the client and the tenant(s) occupy the same building, rental expenses may not be divided easily because the expenses are not billed separately. When this happens, use the number of rooms occupied by the tenant(s) compared to the
total number of rooms in the building to figure the percentage for expenses. For example, if the tenant(s) occupies 5 out of 12 rooms, the expenses of rental are 5/12 of the total expenses.
NOTE: If the results of this calculation appear unfair, or if the client claims they are unfair, refer the case situation to the Bureau of Operations Support (BOS). If BOS finds that the "per room" basis is unfair, they
will supply another allocation and tell the FCRC how much should be allowed for expenses.
