I found an apartment in Zillow and the property manager wants to charge a finder's fee

I have been looking for an apartment for a while and I found one in zillow. The property manager (the person who showed me the appartment) wants to charge me half a month of a finder's fee. It doesn't sound right because I feel that I found the appartment. I feel that the property manager should charge the finder's fee to the owner of the apartment, since it representing the interest of the landlord and not mine.

Thanks Josh, you'r answer helped me validate my thoughts. I am new to the U.S. so I wasn't really sure.

I talked to the property manager and she said that it is something the lawyers put in the application form but it doesn't apply. It is still a little weird, I am just going to cross  it when I fill application.

You are absolutely right. I've never heard of a situation like this before. Ever. Let me know how that ends up. That's just not right. Sorry you are dealing with that!
