Does the entity have a business in addition to the rental? If yes, put the fee on page one. If no, put it on the 8825.

The franchise fee is a cost of doing business, so it is deducted along with other expenses of the business. 

One might decide if there are multiple rental properties and the "business" of the entity is property management. Then other non-rental expenses go on page one.
