Moreover, I saw an article about agent fee that one agent is not able to be agents against landlord and tenants at the same time. But, I had experienced that an agent was co-agent between landlord and me. But, since the agent have many colleagues, I saw that the agent called to other agent and came and act as landlord's agent. But I found out later that he is not landlord agent. How I can know the agent is not cheating
But if you doesn't know how to do the paperworks, or doesn't know how to settle any matter when situation arise, then its good that you find a agent to represent you for the deal.
You are right that the listing agent can't represent both landlord and yourself for the same rental room.
Hope this help.
