According to the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA), for the sale and/or purchase of land/buildings within Malaysia, the agent’s commission fees are set at a maximum of 3% of the property’s sale price.

Hope this helps!
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.
