You haven't given any sentences in which these are used. It's hard to say how they were used in the paragraphs you saw if you don't show us those paragraphs.

I can only tell you how I use those words.

If you live in an apartment or house that you don't own, you pay rent to the owner.

A friend of mine bought a house, but he is not going to live there. He is going to use it as a rental. That is, he is going to rent it to other people who will pay him rent.

Most of the time, when I hear these as nouns, a rental is a place, and rent is an amount of money.

Yeah, for example 2 sentences as below:
- The downward trend in rents for Grade A office space continued in 2008 when average rents fell 8.9% y-o-y.
- In fact, rental declines have slowed every year since the 8.5% y-o-y decline seen in 2001

In my understand, rent and rental above are indicated a regularly pay money to use an office space, but why the first sentence above they don't use "...in rental for..." and while they don't use "In fact, rent declines..." in the second.

Thanks all your contributes ^ ^!

From just this, I would say that 'downward trend in rents' means that rents (amounts paid) are decreasing, and that 'rental declines' are not declines in rent, but declines in the number of places which are being rented.

Yeah, actually I found same meaning of rent and rental in another context, let's me quote other paragraphs:


"Asset Performance

In 3Q11 the average net rental increased marginally by 0.6% q-o-q to MYR 613 per sqm per annum. The landlords of well occupied buildings continued to maintain their higher rental rate expectations. Despite the ability of some landlords to hold rents in 3Q11, the huge incoming supply of superior quality buildings will inevitably pressure many landlords, particularly those with high vacancy rates, to offer greater incentives to attract tenants."

(Asia Pacific Property Digest - 3Q 2011: Kuala Lumpur: Office)


"Asset Performance

In line with leasing deals concluded in recent months, prime gross effective rents increased 4.5% in 3Q11, strongly influenced by the premium range upper end recording sharp growth, having remained steady for over two years. Vacancy in premium grade stock has steadily tightened in recent quarters."

(Asia Pacific Property Digest - 3Q 2011: Sydney: Office)


So, "the average net rental increased..." and "primary gross effective rents increased" show the same meaning of the words
