Yes, usually for the term of the lease and sometimes for options. However it depends... sometimes fees are even flat.

You asked a loaded question. First, are they managing? Or do they have rental agreement that would extend out their brokerage fee? Normally on a sale only they are paid at closing and nothing after unless you have an agreement otherwise.

Generally the commission on a commercial lease is paid for the entire term of the lease on a sliding scale such as 5/4/4/2/2%. However landlords spread can spread the payments over the first 3-18 months, though sometimes paid at the time of the lease signing depending on the landlord. Hope that helps.
