We typically offer a 12-month lease, but depending on the time of year shorter terms may be offered or available.
All prospective residents who are over the age of 18 must complete a rental application form. Two years of positive housing history, verifiable monthly income of at least 3 times the monthly rent, a credit score of 600 plus, and a background history to review for felonies, evictions, or bankruptcies in the past 7 years are required.
The security deposit is equal to one month's rent. $300 of this is paid at the time of application (as earnest money), along with a $7.50 per adult applicant non-refundable credit check fee. Earnest money is applied towards the total refundable security deposit upon execution of the lease agreement.
Rent and fees are due on the first of each month.
Woodland Village is a paperless property! We ask all residents to use our secure and easy-to-use Online Resident Portal and pay rent for free using their checking or savings account. Credit card and MoneyGram® payments are also available, however, a third-party service fee will apply. We also accept eCheck and credit card (service fees apply) payments over the phone. Checks or money orders mailed to our main office in Madison are accepted, but no cash please.
A 5% late fee will apply if you pay on or after the third of the month.
Water is included for $40/mo. per person. Residents are responsible for paying electric through Alliant Energy.
The apartments are not furnished.
Most policies cost $15 or less per month. This small monthly bill can protect you from accidents that could end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars in damages.
Theft of property, such as stolen electronics or missing packages, damage from smoke, lightning, windstorms, or hail, vandalism to your property, water damage, liability for bodily injury to other persons, etc.
Per our lease agreement, all residents without insurance on their move-in day will be added to our master policy and the charge of $15 for renters insurance coverage will be added to your account. Once we have proof of independent coverage we’ll remove you from the master policy.
Steve Brown Apartments requires that each resident maintain a renters insurance policy, with a minimum limit of liability for bodily injury and property damage of $100,000, throughout the term of their lease. We also require that you name SBA Management Services as an “Additional Interested Party” on the policy.
To protect you from a variety of accidents and losses, especially the very expensive ones we see almost every year. For example, a resident accidentally released the fire sprinkler valve in their unit and caused $40,000 in damage to their belongings, their apartment, their neighbor’s apartment, and the common areas in their building. Fortunately, this resident had renters insurance, and the damages were covered by their policy instead of out of their pocket.
Simply add the policy with the company that holds your vehicle insurance, or call the insurance agent (or agency) of your choice.
