Application Instructions

When you have selected your new apartment at one of our communities you will need to complete our online application. To do so you can go to the property page that you have selected and simply click the “Apply Now” button.

For multiple applicants, please select one occupant (primary applicant) to create an online account and begin the application. The primary applicant will then be able to invite additional occupants or co-signers to apply via email.

  1. Completed application from each occupant age 18 or older.

Proof of income must reflect the amount you will be making in Madison, WI upon your move-in date. The minimum requirement for combined gross monthly income is 3x the total monthly rent plus any additional rentable items (parking, storage, pet fees). In the event this amount cannot be provided a co-signer will be required. Monthly income isn’t quite enough? No need to worry! We can accept assets/bank account/etc. to supplement an occupant’s monthly income.
  8. Credit/Background - Credit and background checks will be run through a third-party company.

You will need to notify Urban Land Interests prior to application approval if it is NOT your intent to accept the apartment. Once your application is approved, your earnest money is non-refundable. If your application is denied, or you cancel before approval, your earnest money will be refunded to you minus any applicable charges.

When we receive your completed application, our team will run your credit and background check, confirm your housing history and review your proof of income. If you are approved, we will notify you and send your lease to you electronically.

After signing your lease, you should schedule your move-in appointment with your Property Manager. During this meeting, you will receive your keys and get a short orientation to your new home. 

Now that you have secured your move-in appointment, it is time to schedule your cable/internet installation.

  • AT&T is the cable and internet service provider for the following communities: 1722 Monroe, Nine Line, Quarter Row, SEVEN27, and The Pressman. Our team will refer you to our AT&T concierge partner to help you get the process started.
  • Spectrum is the cable and internet service provider for the following communities: Capitol Hill, City Place, Lincoln School, Tobacco Lofts and Wilson Bay. Please go to Spectrum's website to schedule installation.
  • The Depot has complimentary WiFi throughout the building provided through SupraNet. If you would like to add additional cable and internet services you may contact Spectrum.
Don't worry about setting up your billing for heat/electricity through Madison Gas & Electric, we will take care of that for you!

Next, update your address with the post office, your bank, credit card companies, and online ordering services so that all packages and mail find you in your new home.

Schedule movers, rent a truck and/or arrange your POD delivery.

  • Keep in mind, you will not be able to access your new home prior to your move-in appointment so plan accordingly.
  • PODs and U-Haul U-Boxes must be permitted by the city and parked on the street. We are unable to accommodate deliveries of these storage containers in our lots and garages. Visit the Madison Parking Utility website for more information.
  • If you are moving into The Pressman, you will need to reach out to your Property Manager to confirm loading dock availability.
Finally, transfer your renter's insurance policy to your new address. Don't have renter's insurance? Your lease requires a policy be in place with a minimum liability of $25,000 per occurrence, which most renter's insurance policies more than cover. Once your policy is in place, please send us a copy of your proof of insurance.
