Should I pay a deposit despite a weird clause in the application?

I'm renting an apartment in Denver, CO, and the property manager is asking I pay a deposit in the form of a money order mailed to his address or delivered to the onsite manager to hold the apartment. I've checked the property out with the onsite manager, and it looks great. Worryingly, the application says that if offered the apartment and I refuse to sign the lease, the deposit will be kept. Is this normal, and is there anything else I should be worried about? [more inside]

Anyone know the best way to go about finding a private rental (not through a estate agent) in Melbourne?

Asking on behalf of my brother, who has just moved to Melbourne with his girlfriend. They are looking for a house to rent, and have been going through the usual real estate agents, etc. They were talking to a couple of friends of theirs, who were also looking for a place to rent, and who just found a private rental property (ie. through the landlord, not through a real estate agent) on Gumtree. My brother was wondering if there is some sort of website or centralised place to find private rental properties in Melbourne? [more inside]
