Hello, and thanks for posting this question with us. I agree with you. The real estate agent should have presented those items when s/he was first hired. It is improper to inject them into the deal after the fact. Also, lease renewal commissions are normally paid by the owner/landlord, not the tenant. The real estate commission proposal is totally off the wall. Why would anyone agree to that? You should tell the agent to bring you the lease in 24 hours or you will go to the landlord yourself and then to the local real estate board with a complaint, in that order. I hope this Answer is helpful and that you will give it a positive rating. If you have any follow up questions please send back a Reply. You should consult a local attorney to verify that this information is accurate for your state. Thank you for using Pearl.com- Just Answer. We appreciate your business.
I just realized - I cannot go to the landlord, as I do not know who it is. I did not get back the signed lease in which the landlord was supposed to fill in his address (it is a trust of some sort). Can I go the landlord's RE agent and ask for the signed lease?
