Most real estate agencies in Malta charge the same commission rates. The fee for a real estate agent depends on the kind of real estate service (letting, commercial, sales). Our table shows the standard commission rates for estate agents in Malta.
|Agency Fee||Paid by|
|Residential Long Lets||50 % of 1 months’ rent + VAT||Tenant & Owner|
|Residential Short Lets||10 % of the total rent + VAT||Tenant & Owner|
|Commercial Rentals||10 % of 1 years’ rent + VAT||Tenant & Owner|
|Residential Sales||5 % + VAT||Usually owner|
In case a property seller signs up for a sole agency program, the commission rate is usually reduced to 3,5 %. A sole agency program grants one real estate agency exclusive rights to market the property for a specific time of usually 90 days.
The commission rate for a real estate broker amounts to 1 % of the property price.
