The Board of Valuers,Appraisers & Estate Agents Malaysia has given guidelines on professional ethics and maximum fees chargeable by estate agnets. Estate agents can either be engaged by the Owner/Landlord or the Buyer/Tenant but estate agents cannot collect agency fees from both Owner/Landlord and Buyer/Tenant.If you are responding to the Estate Agent's property listing that is advertised then that Estate Agent is likely to have been engaged by the Owner/Landlord and a fee has been agreed to be paid by Owner/Landlord. Sometimes we have Buyer/Tenants who needed our services to find them a unique property at good prices or terms, then they will agree to pay us a fee upon success basis before we embark on the search and information gathering. Hope this will clear the air about our estate agency profession to clients like you.

Fellows REA & REN, We are practicing a win-win-win rules in properties market. The involved party are Tenant/Purchaser-Landlord-Agent. There is a case which seller did not want to pay commission to the agent, so what the agent do is he collect commission from the purchaser. The purchaser is happy to pay, the seller is happy to sell his property and the agent is happy to close deal.

Agreed with Andrew Ang Quoted by Andrew Ang: "Put yourself as an agent without normal salary and running everywhere 4 your client at your own expense. So how would you feel if your client don't pay you the commission?"

NO, buyer not bear the commission Only seller pay commission to agent because it is seller who approach agent to sell. The motive is to find buyer to pay for the properties wanted to be sold by the seller , so seller who get the service from agent who get a right buyer ought to pay the commission for the agent. NOt the buyer. I hope this clarify Have a great day
