A cautionary note on scams and deposits: In the city of Berkeley, landlords can only ask for a deposit of up to 3 times the amount of monthly rent, which includes the first, last, and one months rent. If you are looking for a place in Berkeley and they ask for more than this amount (or has no set price at all), be wary.
When sending a deposit, make sure you have the name of the person you are issuing it to. Write a check, cashier check, or money order and mail it to that person. This will ensure that the payment is traceable and you have an address for the individual. Do not wire transfer or Western Union.
