Hi Sam,

As your mentioning that your agent lost his license during the tenure of your rental and you are seeking understanding if he should refund you the agent fees on pro rated basis, is that to say that if he indeed needs to refund you, your tenancy agreement will have to be voided and you have to start looking for a new place for rental? Perhaps the rental rate may have increased?

Most sales industries where salesperson earns purely by commission I understand also does it this way, a top salesperson secured a big contract and leaves 1 or 2 months after that for greener pasture, does the company take back the commission?

Furthermore, the commission you have paid is made payable to the estate agent (agency) your salesperson is representing, therefore should there be any needs for clarification pertaining to the tenancy, you can contact the agency he is representing to seek advise.

Hope this is clear to your understanding.
