The Accrued Rent Calculator helps tenants and landlords calculate the total amount of rent owed over a specified period. Accrued rent refers to the rent that has accumulated but has not yet been paid. This tool is particularly useful for tenants who may have missed payments and want to know the total amount due or for landlords tracking overdue rent.

### Formula

The formula to calculate total accrued rent is:

**T = M × R**

Where:

**T**= Total Accrued Rent**M**= Number of Months Due**R**= Monthly Rent

### How to Use

- Enter the monthly rent (R) in the provided input field.
- Enter the number of months rent is due (M).
- Click the “Calculate” button to find out the total accrued rent.

### Example

Suppose the monthly rent is $1,000 and the rent is overdue for 3 months. Using the formula:

T = 3 months × $1,000 = $3,000

This means the total accrued rent is $3,000.
