Is the estate agent entitled to commission?

I am interesting in buying a property. The seller listed the property in September with an estate agent with sole mandate until Jan 2016. I heard about this property from their neighbours and it is in the same complex I am currently staying. No agent were involved in showing me the property nor informing me that a property is for sale. Can the seller sell to me privately without having to pay commission to the state agent?
