  • STEP 3: Please read and agree to the Applicant Acknowledgements and Applicant Statements below:

  • Applicant Acknowledgements:

    This document is not a lease, agreement or permit and it is not considered valid for residency unless signed by the applicant. Incomplete application forms, failure to submit an application form for every individual proposed resident and the submission of incomplete earnest money all invalidate the application process and any application(s) submitted containing such omissions may be rejected. By providing your phone number and email you are granting Steve Brown Apartments permission to email or text you important updates, notices, and information. You may opt-out upon receipt. I hereby authorize the Owner, or his Representative, to investigate my credit and financial responsibility, income, rental and eviction history, criminal background, the statements made in this application, and to obtain a consumer credit report on me from a consumer reporting agency that compiles and maintains files on consumers on a nationwide basis. My performance under any lease or rental agreement that I may enter into with the Owner may be reported to such reporting agency. I acknowledge the following fee structure: 1) Credit check fee (per person): $16, 2) Rewriting Any Lease or Lease Addenda: varies, $200 max, 3) Sublet Agreements: $175, 4) Non-standard Individual Lease Premium: $125, 5) Additional Residents: $125 per resident, per month. I warrant and represent that I am at least 18 years of age and that all statements herein are true and correct, to the best of my knowledge. I understand that application forms incompletely filled out, not submitting an application form for every individual resident, and the submission of incomplete earnest money can all invalidate the application process and that any application(s) submitted containing such omissions may be rejected at Owner's sole option. I have reviewed the applicant statement below and agree to the terms listed within. Applicant Statements If my application is approved, the Owner and I shall sign a written lease. It is my intent to lease the apartment units indicated but I understand that the Owner and I have no rental agreement until the time of the lease signing. I understand that there is no application fee, nor is there any administrative fee for completing the lease signing process provided there is no change in residents or terms from the time of the initial submission of (an) application(s) until the signing of the Lease (and guarantor copies if applicable). I also understand that there is a schedule of fees for re-writing leases, completing a second lease-signing process, or creating additional addenda to modify the Lease, either before or after the initial lease signing. I have paid the earnest money deposit indicated on this application. The earnest money deposit will be applied toward my security deposit if the Owner enters into a lease or rental agreement with me. The remainder of the earnest money is due at the time said lease or rental agreement is signed. If this application is approved, and I fail to enter into a lease or rental agreement, the earnest money and any subsequent payments may be retained to compensate the Owner's costs and damages, subject to the Owner's duty to mitigate. A minimum $200 fee plus any costs and damages to re-rent the apartment may be retained, and no earnest moneys shall be refunded unless and until the apartment is re-rented to another party and a new lease signed. I have carefully reviewed the unit information section of this application and have received any related documents as regards the habitability of the dwelling unit from the Owner, or his Representative, and I understand my financial responsibilities as regards the payment of utility billing for this unit. I was given the opportunity to review a sample lease and the Owner's rules and regulations. If this application is rejected, or withdrawn before approval, the earnest money and any subsequent payments will be refunded to me. Requests to withdraw applications must be made either in writing or in person. Although the Owner may not have shown me the specific apartment for which I am applying, or I may not have seen the apartment at all, I fully intend to execute a Lease with the Owner for these Premises. Notice about sex offender registry: You may obtain information about the sex offender registry and persons registered with the registry by contacting the Wisconsin Department of Corrections on the Internet at or by telephone at (608) 240-5830. I understand that I have the right to do any of the following not less than 7 days following the start of my tenancy: 1) Inspect dwelling unit and notify landlord of any pre-existing damages or defects. 2) Request a list, in writing, of physical damages or defects, if any, charged to previous tenant's security deposit. -- END --
