It shall be an unfair practice for any insurance producer or surplus line broker providing services in connection with the procurement of insurance to charge a fee in excess of the usual commission which would be paid to an insurance producer or surplus line broker without having advised the insured or prospective insured, in writing, in advance of the rendering of services, that there will be a charge and its amount or the basis on which such charge will be determined.
