No. The lessor is responsible to pay his own broker if there is no commission offered in connection with the property. That being said, you may wish to consider doing so if the agent is representing someone who is ready and able. You may be able to adjust the lease rate to help share the cost with the lessor. You may want to consider that most of the better tenants will be represented by a broker.

You may agree to pay their commission but are not obligated to.
