    Default Re: for rent or for renting

    Hello VG

    "Rent" works both as a noun and a verb:

    1. "Do you have your own place?" "No, I rent a small flat in Stoke Basing."

    verb.

    2. I owe my landlord 6 months' rent.

    noun.

    3. I'm thinking about renting a flat.

    gerund (verbal noun)

    Bye
    MrP
