You should most definetely review your contract. I am a firm believer in keeping the lines of communication open and honest. If the tenant you have found falls through you'll want to have a back up plan with your realtor/agent office.

That will depend how your contract is written. I would reference your contract and discuss with you agent. Even though you found the tenant you still need to complete all the paperwork which can be daunting and there is value to have the agent do all the work. Best

The best person to answer the question is your agent; also review the agreemeent, as the answer may be found in it....

That depends on what type of contract you signed. If you signed an exclusive agreement you may still owe the agency you singed the contract with a commission even though you located a tenant. Contact your agent and see if you can work something out. If nothing can be resolved, contact an attorney for help.

All the best,
