agent commission paid by landlord for 6months renewal

Post by ysr » Thu, 16 May 2019 2:31 am

Hi all,

is it true that even for a 6 months renewal of lease by landlord with the same tenants , landlord has to pay half month rent as commission...
any body has experience in how much commission do agents usually charge for extension of rental lease for 6 months only.
any inputs highly appreciated.

It really depends on the contract signed between the owner and agent but for a 6months it should be half the commission of a normal 1 year contract.

I called to my owner and asked is any way I can make direct contract she said my first year contract has
a term I must go with same agent every year but I checked my TA there is nothing written as such in my whole TA. Why owner is so hesitating even she din;t refuse directly making direct contract, Always say she can but give me bizzare explanation. What is the benifit of agent every year I am paying agency fees!

All agent's commission can be discuss and negotiate before hand.

Really depends on the agreement between the 2 parties..but I know the norm here is owners usually pay renewal fees to the agents.

In the contract there's a clause to state whether you need to pay the agent commission for renewal. up to you to go and negotiate!
