Yes it is typical but some will only require first and security. You can always negotiate it but rentals today are demanding higher up front down payments due to the number of tenants with credit issues from losing homes. Demand for rentals are high and inventory is low so prices to rent are higher. Most seasoned owners who rent have learned to collect as much up front to take care of issue that often arise.
