Louis  Wolfs…, Real Estate Pro in Needham, MA

Louis Wolfson answered:
Typically it is not uncommon for the following to be required upon signing a lease.

1st deposit given with rental application. Sometimes they get a small amount (25) to do a credit check on the application.

If application is accepted and you move on to the lease, you would give the balance (that between the deposit and the first months rent) the last months rent and the agents fee. A total of 3 months, you may want to check with the agent again

Good Luck

Austin Partain answered:
Depends on where you are looking in Boston. Back Bay, Business district, North End is a different market than Fenway, Allston, Brighton, Brookline. Downtown area will advertise on MLS more than Fenway, Allston, Brighton, Brookline. If you're looking in FABB there are many companies with exclusive listings and they share a bunch of listings as well. My advice is take one day and walk into as many offices on Comm Ave as you can for the FABB area. Look on MLS for downtown, although you will also notice that offices share and have exclusive listings. It's very fast paced, so be prepared with a deposit and documentation for application. 8/1-8/15 move in dates aren't as common as 9/1 so your options may be limited. Hope this helps. ... more

Hi Vince,

In Massachusetts, all leases will transfer to the new owner. You will still have the same contractual obligation to the new owner.

The new owner may let you leave early though. It would be his discretion. ... more
