Leasing properties is not about digging up lessees. It’s about finding the best tenant.
Our award-winning business investigates the possible tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty and Management assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same. The prospective lessee should demonstrate a history of being a top, good renter and at the same time meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty & Management utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we’re talking to actual landlord about actual rental history of the applicant.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty investigates prospects for continued employment, job status, salary and job title. Depending upon the prospective tenant’s debt load, a tenant needs to earn not less than 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.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the tenant with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental unit and community.
