There are no set standards when it commissions as it would go against Federal Laws, see link below; therefore have a discussion regarding any commission fees with your agent beforehand....

Yes,that is the minimum.
Some agents charge 10-12% of the one years Rent.

The agent spoke with someone in their office and mentioned there's a one month agent's fee which was not shown on Trulia or on their website. Thanks for the advise, Anna B!

By the way commissions are always negotiable.....you can also check http://www.mlsli.com and ask your agent to show you any of the listings that are of interest to you.
