Can tenant sue for realtor fee amonths after they occupy?

Question Details:

I was listing agent representing landlord on rental. Tenants came through another realtor and paid our fee. Some repairs not made by landlord by start date of lease. I told them not to move in because he had 30 days from start to finish repairs or else they could void lease. They moved in anyway and have lived there for months. Landlord never fixed problems or got a C/O although I advised him. I am not apartment manager. Can they sue me for fee even though it's now a landlord/tenant issue? Do I need a real estate lawyer to help me with this? I'm in Morris County, NJ.
