Is service fee necessary while renewing contract? (Singapore)
I rent a flat through an agent last year. so while i signed the housing contract, i paid one month deposit + service for my agent.
Recently I informed my agent that i would like to renew the contract for another year. Landlord increased the rate and i negotiated. so basically my agent simply plays as a middle man to pass message. now i have reached agreement with the landlord and my agent is supposed to prepare for the contract. surprisingly he wants to charge me half a month rate for the service fee.
Is it normally the case? he simply made few phone calls and prepares some paper and wants to charge me more than Protected content ??
