No broker does not have any right. He can demand only at the time of searching the house and not every year. Refuse him directly.
if you have got direct contact with the owner you can directly deal with owner and omit the broker.
It is very awsome situation and we have ever heard. A broker is always paybale in one time.
Usually brokers charge one month rent as fee. But it is very difficult to understand what
prompted you to pay simaltaneously both the owner and broker.Did you agreed to pay
or out of fear you have caused to pay. Report the matter to local Police station and
bluntly refuse to pay.
