Checking out applicants is one of the most crucial tasks of every rental manager in Alexandria.

Nesbitt Realty investigates the possible lessee’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The possible lessee should demonstrate a history of being a stable, trustworthy tenant as well as demonstrated financial capacity. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:

  • Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty establishes prospects for continued employment, job title, salary and job status. Depending upon the possible lessee’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 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 & Management knows it’s vital to know the criminal and public court records of the potential renter on every rental property in Alexandria. Real Estate Owners should be aware that most other rental managers do not check out court records.

If accepted, the prospective lessee’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 investment property and community.
