Be careful. Only deal with reputable, established real estate professionals with references and accountability. I've seen some crazy schemes over the years. Most recently, I witnessed scam artists victimizing would-be renters for a house that was actually for sale by a legitimate Realtor and seller (not for rent). The crooks took the pictures from the (for sale) listing and made their own rental listing and had people paying money to apply to lease this house, that they had no authority to represent. The owner was still living in the house, too. Very brazen, I'm sure you'll agree. I don't believe that the police ever caught the perpetrators, but I understand that they had many applicants give them their private information (identity theft) and pay them money for screening that was never done. They were asking for first months rent, plus the security deposit, and were offering a lease. I don't know how many victims they got on that part of it, but they were "renting" the house slightly under market, around $2,000 a month, so this meant if someone fell for it, they would've turned over $4,000 to the bad guys. ... more

If the broker does not have a trust account, typically the he or she will deliver the full rent check to the owner, who then would have to write a check each month to the broker for the amount of the commission.

This is one of the reasons of why most property managers have a trust account. If there is no trust account, the rent would have to be given to the owner who will then, after receiving the rent, pay the broker what is due. This could lead to delays in the broker’s receipt of his or her commission or having battles with the client to ensure payment.

I do not recommend any agent to place any funds into their personal account. Good luck. Rita
