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. Photo identification, verifiable housing history, references, employment, and income information (gross income must equal at least 3X the monthly rent) are required. Applicants with excessive collections, falsified or incomplete application information, and/or a history of excessive late payments may not be accepted.
The security deposit is equal to a one month's rent. $300 of this is paid at the time of application (as earnest money). Earnest Money will become a portion of your refundable Security Deposit upon execution of the lease agreement.
Rent and fees are due on the 15th of each month.

Per our lease agreement, all residents without insurance on their move-in day will be added to our master policy and the charge 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.
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.
Simply add the policy with the company that holds your vehicle insurance, or call the insurance agent (or agency) of your choice. If you don’t have a preferred insurance provider you’re encouraged to consider ResidentInsure. All of our properties are pre-approved for coverage so you can sign up in less than five minutes.
