The first step for Nesbitt Realty to shop a dependable tenant is to market your rental to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to identigy the a solid renter. Investigating applicants is one of the most crucial aspects of any local rental management company in 22303 in Alexandria.
Nesbitt investigates the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same. The possible lessee should demonstrate a history of being a honest, reliable renter while at the same time meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty establishes job status, prospects for continued employment, job title and salary. Depending upon the applicant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty screens tenants with a combination of checking credit history, background, eviction and criminal screening services as well as our own efforts to collect information needed to confirm and process the application.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the prospective renter on every rental property in Alexandria, Virginia. Real Estate Owners should be aware that nearly all other property managers do not check out court records.
If accepted, the possible renter’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the lessee with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental dwelling and community.
