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]

First time renting questions in Tampa, FL

I'm looking to rent a house in Tampa, FL (to live in, not a vacation), but I'm not sure where to start looking. I see all kinds of listings online, but I have no way of judging the worth of these - they look like cross linking listing spam and they make me hesitant to trust them. This is the first place I'm renting - everywhere else I've lived has been with friends and family. Where do I start? Suggestions on people to talk to or places to look for decent homes for rent? Also: What questions should I be asking prospective landlords?

When "don't worry about it" means "I'll demand payment four months later."

My landlord said not to worry about paying for a sculpture I damaged, four months later wants to take payment out of my deposit - and wants me to determine how much I should pay even though she knows I don't know anything about antiques and have no money after she made me move out. How do I deal with this in a mature fashion? [more inside]

Recovering cost of cancelled security deposit

Can a landlord charge a tenant the cost of a cancelled security deposit check? My least ended 5/31. My landlord sent out the security deposit 6/29. I never received the deposit, and asked repeatedly that it be re-sent. She agreed to cancel the check and re-send 7/13. I gave her my address, and today a letter sent 7/15 arrived containing the deposit less the cost of cancelling the previous check. I was supposed to get the deposit within 30 days. Do I have any recourse here on recovering this?
