Susan Hansford answered:
Having a tenant pay an entire year’s rent up front is wrong on all levels. There is NO benefit to a landlord to take a full year’s rent upfront.

Paying a year’s rent upfront sounds very fishy and sends up many red flags.
1. What is their motivation for paying upfront?
2. Can they show documented proof (W-2s, 1099s & tax returns) where the source of funds came from?
3. What exactly is their credit score?

Personally, I would never accept payment in advance, because it remains the property of the tenant until the beginning of each month and the landlord may not use any except the amount owed each month. There is no benefit to a landlord and, plainly said, it is a bribe to entice dumb greedy landlords.

Suggest to your client that he/she put the funds into an account which they pay their rent from each month- if they can’t manage their money, that’s their problem- a landlord doesn’t want to make it theirs.

It depends if you had a contract with your listing agent to also represent you as a buyer agent to buy a home? If so yes, if not could be no.
