What does 'Split Commission' mean?

Split Commission

Often found in very small estate agents. One agent will win an instruction to sell a property for a certain fee. He will then offer to split this fee with another agent if they can sell it - often without telling the vendor. There are security issues with this and the seller ends up with a lack of control, not knowing where or how their property is being marketed.
