Hope this helps and have a nice day!
While it's true that commissions can be negotiated, every agent, and every firm has their own ideas of what is appropriate and what isn't. You will typically find agents collecting one months worth of rent from their tenants as commission on rental buildings (those being represented by the landlord/managing company). And this fee can easily go up if you are looking at broker listed apartments. This fee typically ranges from 1 month rent, up to 15% of the years rent as commission.
Good luck to you.
