Hi Amy!

Good question. In fact, there are many different ways that maintenance requests can be handled. Some newer buildings have an online system for maintenance requests that you can access day or night. In some buildings that have a doorman, usually calling or asking the doorman is enough to have the maintenance request handled. Lastly, in smaller buildings that don't have a doorman, you will typically get the phone number of the superintendent when you move in. This is the person to whom you will direct your maintenance requests.

That being said, even when you have successfully submitted a request for maintenance, the speed and efficiency with which the request is handled depends completely on the building/management company. A seasoned agent should be able to tell you what sort of reputation a building/management company has for processing maintenance requests as you hunt for a new home.

I hope this answer your question!

Just came across this. Really impressive that you would even consider that. Most people wouldn't think twice. Obviously, as an agent, I think the broker deserves the fee both morally and legally. Nevertheless, for people to expect you to keep a moral obligation is silly. Impressive that you did and enjoy NY! ... more

Elena Sound very odd,
It may be possible that the other broker has that kind of arrangement with the LL. but in my opinion... not likely. And if the other agent is collecting the OP from the owner yes you can COF.

A few things to keep in mind on your end, first did your client sign a fee agreement with you?
if he did you should be protected, otherwise not!
Second, why your name is not on the lease? OP or not, no matter what's the arrangement with the LL. if you are not named as the other agent on the lease you are not likely to get any part of the OP!

I strongly suggest that you get your broker involved before its too late.
Hope all works out well for you, Good Luck

My advice to you is to find the neighborhoods that you want to live in and walk around. Although I am a mortgage professional, I am always walking the streets of Brooklyn and I see listings with smaller but local real estate shops or sometimes I see homeowners with signs in their window with apartments for rent. I can also tell you that you will have much more luck with private rentals as opposed to working with larger management companies as they will want to pull credit reports. Again, I'm not a real estate agent but if you email with the neighborhoods you are looking at, I can provide you with referrals to real estate agents that are in those areas and that will be able to help you find what you want. Hope this helps.

Don Tepper answered:
Check your agreement with the agent. What does your agreement--the one you signed, the one you agreed to--say will void the agreement?

By the way, Joseph is correct: There's no standard agreement. Maybe you agreed to a 15% fee, but that's no more standard than anything else that can be negotiated...and virtually everything can be.

Hope that helps.

Good rule of thumb: ask the person who is making the requirement what would satisfy them.

All the best,
