who is responsible for paying the broker commission? I have heard that it varies in different areas. Is this

a point for negotiations? Is there a general commission % let's say on a 5 year lease?

Usually the landlord pays the commission however there is a clause in the representation agreement the tenant would pay if the landlord does not. That could be the case if the broker is showing a property that is privately owned. The real estate commission does not endorse set rates.
