Dear Monty column: Real estate agent puts commission at risk

Q. I own a business and the property. I recently decided to close my doors and retire. I put a sign in the front window closing business. A Realtor came in and asked if the property was for lease and if could she bring a client down to look at it. After looking at it, the client was excited. The Realtor came in the next day and told me upon completion of the lease, I would owe them a commission fee. As I never asked for their help, am I obligated? They approached me and not the other way around. At least once a month, people come in and ask about leasing. I do not need any help. Thanks. - Barry
