The agent has done his job so long as he explained this obligation to the client before the contract was signed. Assuming that happened, the agent isn't necessarily in wrong here. However, it would be better quality service as an adviser and in their own best interest to make efforts to remind the client about this provision and particularly as it seemed to only be applicable in the final year of the deal.
