I recently saw a property I wanted for rent. I asked what I had to pay to reserve it and therefore ‘take it off the market’. I was presented with the statement: Pay the usual fees upfront AND a month’s rent in advance.
Is that legal? In the past I have only had to pay the fees upfront. What’s going on? Is this agent being greedy, acting unproper? I’d be glad to have some feedback. it’s a long time since I went house hunting, so this came as a surprise to me anyway.
Incidently, I like the forum software.
