Rentals usually have some sort of cooperation offer just like sales in MLS.

If listed with another company meaning manages then the owner pays the other company a management fee but if not there is nothing set in stone as who has to pay. More often then not though the owner as well as the agent want the new renter to pay the agent. Although there is a few things you can do in this situation. If you can find out why the apartment is available at this time of year maybe you can get the leaving tenant to pay some of that fee and being thats its what we agents like to call the off season for rentals and the demand is slightly down you can ask the landlord to pay part of fee. Or ask agent to reduce any. Don't worry you will not loose the apartment just by asking if they will pay any part of the fee. Its a negotiation there is always some wiggle room. But depends on multiple factors how good of a tenant you are, if unit is vacant, if tenant is breaking lease. Good luck and let us know what happens
Usually when one agency has the listing but the renter came from another agency, they split the fee 50/50 between each of them. Sometimes it doesn't work and the listing agent only gives 25%, but it all depends on what has been agreed to.
I hope this helps.
It depends on the arrangement. Some landlords pay a fee. Others do not. When the landlord does NOT pay the fee, the agent that brings the tenant will most likely seek a fee from the tenant. There is not "standard" practice.
Hope this helps.
