Asked by Unspecified, San Francisco, CA • Fri Nov 15, 2013
Is it common for landlords/property managers to require a leasing agreement, security deposit, and first month's rent deposited in their bank account before we can even view the apartment? I've never run into a situation like this before and want to make sure it's not a scam.
Usually we are allowed to see the apartment before we sign any contracts or make any deposits, but this landlord/property manager requires us to make a deposit and sign an agreement before we can even see the apartment.
Is that common? Does it happen often? Or is it not usually supposed to happen?
