Hi Joanna, most of the units advertisement you seen will be from the landlord agent. So technically, these agents are representing their landlord and will also be collecting commission from him or her. So if you are asked to pay commission, then I suggest you could skip this unit and look for other units then.

    Thanks for the advise, here are what I get:
    Whoever posting the units can represent landlord or tenant because:
    1. as long have another diff says agent to present another parties, they can ask for tenant's agent fees
    2. as long we ask then agent say: "yes tenant to pay" even we are not engage the service of the agent also will apply the rule that both we had accept it

Hi Joanna,

The best way to find out is not through asking us, but rather asking the agent whom you have called if commission is applicable for you. If it is, you decide if you wish to proceed. Especially if unit is really nice and conveniently located. An agent should not be collecting commissions from both landlord and tenant and I am quite sure all practising agents should know this.

Hi,

The agent should inform you if or you should always clarify if there is any agent's fee before going for any viewings let alone giving the deposit.

So long it is not the same agent representing both parties then both agents can collect agent fee so long both landlord and tenant are ok. If you are not willing to pay, then just tell them no and move on.

Hi there!

You can always DIY and look for landlord agent. The best way is to ask at the first point of contact whether commission is payable.

Hope this helps!
