Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question

Good morning. What did the listing agreement / contract you signed with them say about this, if anything?

What is the about it?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
What is the law? Do i have to involve the agent in my negotiations with the tenant?

Thank you for the reply. There is nothing which would require you to involve the tenant, if you want to renew the lease. You can present it to the tenant and agree to the terms and conditions and have them enter into and sign for a new lease term. The only issue would be if the realtor who found them was entitled to another commission, based upon the renewal and that would really depend on the contract which you signed with them. Often times, it would not but I have seen situations which the realtor would be entitled to another commission but often at a reduced fee. If you are unsure, you can still proceed and renew the lease with your tenant and if the realtor finds out and contacts you, address it at that time.
