Sound Fair?

So I'm thinking about how to split rent... this sound fair?

Rent = ((Communal area * Cost per Square foot) / Number of roomies)) + (Rent for Area of Bedroom)

Rent for area of bedroom = ((Bedoom area * cost of SQ foot rent) +50 if master bedroom with bath)/ Number of people in room (Say for a b/f or a g/f)

Cost Per Square foot = Rent/ SQ footage of Apartment

With the masterbedroom it would be 2 people, so they are paying 100 extra for the bigger room and private bath...

What you've got sounds complex. I guess it depends on how many roommates you're looking at, how big the place is or if you are going to include utilities in it as well?

I think that it could work the way you have it set up. Although you may want to consider just setting up a flat round number that is more or less the same for everyone. Since I suspect that your name will be the one on the lease, you should also set it up so that there is a little extra coming to you beyond what covers the rent and whatnot, so that there is a little emergency fund in case you need lightbulbs or some random repair done to the place.

Utilities I think should be an equal share kind of thing, same with any repairs, unless the person broke the damn thing them selves...

It is a lil complex, but I figure if I throw this formula for rent at what we are using, it's fair, and doesn't favor anyone..

What I do want is a Kitty full of some extra money for house repairs that everyone has to pitch into .. Kitty rolls over at end of month if not used.. Everyone will have at least a month of rent already in it.. I'll have to think about that one..
