Asked by Ms. Tracy Lim
I am a landlord of a HDB flat. I advertised in the newspapers to rent out my flat. An agent brought a prospective tenant to view the flat and agreed on the rental. Do I need to pay the agent commission? Since I did not engage this agent in the first place, should the commission be paid by the tenant instead of me? If I do need to pay the commission, how much do I have to pay?
