If the unit is listed in the multiple listing, you do not have to pay a fee, owner pays.

good luck in your move.

To answer the question, yes they are similar, Here in Los Angeles the Seller or Landlord pays all fees unless agreed to otherwise. I suggest you contact a knowledgeable agent to help you out.

Not for renters, landlord pays for broker's fee, unless you have very specific requests that are hard to find. $1300 may get you a studio or one bedroom apartment in the area. Is that what you need?

Congratulations on deciding to move to Los Angeles!

Yes, there are fees for using an agent or broker in Los Angeles, but the fees are usually paid by the person selling or offering the property for lease. As a renter, it is free of charge for you to contact a real estate agent for help!

I specialize in properties in the West Hollywood area and I would be happy to assist you in searching for the perfect apartment that fits your requirements! Please feel free to contact me anytime at (310) 717-1321 or with any questions or concerns. I would be happy to email you a list of potential apartments within your budget and help preview the properties.

Best Regards,
