rent depot, into the landlord's account?

Hi everybody,

I need help / advice on the followinbg situation, maybe some of you have more experience than I do.

I have lived in Zurich for 6 months now, in an apartment that I need to leave next month. I have found a new place, great and all, and I have alread signed the contract. It says that I should put the rent depot in an account at my name and pay the first month's rent before moving in.

So far so good. However, the landlord insists that the depot should be payed to his personal account, claiming that he will later transfer the money to my rent-deposit-account. I don't see the reason. Do you think that's usual? Has that happened to anyone of you? Or has everybody just payed the depot to their own accounts and then handled the certificate to the landlord?

Thank you very much!
