The first step for Nesbitt Realty to discover the best-possible lessee is to market your rental property to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to identigy the the dream tenant. Checking the backgrounds of prospective lessees is one of the most vital responsibilities of the successful management services of a rental in the counties of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax and Falls Church.
Our small real estate company investigates the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our brokerage assumes the possible tenant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a good, solid lessee and also demonstrated financial capacity. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual property owner about actual rental history of the potential renter.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt 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.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty verifies job title, salary, prospects for continued employment and job status. Depending upon the applicant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn a minimum of 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
If accepted, the possible renter’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the renter with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental and community.
