Two columns in lease agreements

Hi!
In most Japanese residential rental agreements I've seen, there is a section where the real estate agency (宅地建物取引業者) and the real state agent (宅地建物取引士) put their stamp (jitsuin) on it as a sign of validation.

For example: (Look table at page 4) https://www.smhome.co.jp/sodanannai/soodan/tekishakuya-ippan.pdf

However, I don't know why in that kind of table there are often 2 columns: A and B. Do you have any idea why?

Wouldn't just column A be enough?

Just thinking about real estate in general there are often two parties to a transaction, one representing the buyer and one representing the seller, and they each want their fee. That would be my guess.

I agree with @mdchachi. It’s probably not uncommon to have two real-estate agents involved, one for the seller/landlord/lessor and the other for the buyer/tenant/lessee.
