I have two comments.

I thought the key fee used to be something you found in loft rentals. Renters would put a lot of money into a loft space they didn't own so they recovered the cost when they moved out in the form of the "key fee", but I may just be wrong about that.

The second thing is with respect to the "finder's fees". I found an apartment by going directly to the landlord, but the landlord then directed me to a broker, who, of course, wanted to charge the broker's extortion fee. I couldn't help wondering whether the landlord and broker had some kind of scheme going. There was no obvious legal/business connection between the two.
