Hi,
In the regular transaction with property listed on the MLS the landlord would pay the fee which is split between listing agent and tenant's agent. It is totally different story if the agent finds property for rent and it is not listed on the MLS and landlord refuses to pay the fee then agent may ask renter to pay the fee.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Renters generally do not pay any Realtor fees to find or lease an apartment. My contract with renters allows me to collect 1/2 of one months rent from the landlord after a lease is closed. Renters pay nothing for the service because the landlord has already offered an incentive to the agent through the MLS listings.

In the event the agent finds you a property that is not listed, and the owner is unwilling to pay the agent to facilitate the transaction, the agent may ask you for compensation. This is very rare and should be discussed beforehand.

Typically,
The first month's rent goes towards the brokers' commission. That is given directly to the landlord, and the landlord pays the brokerage.

typically the landlord is charged and commission split between the offices. Best of luck in your search!
