What Does Nesbitt Realty Do To Investigate Applicants In Northern Virginia?

The first step for us to identify the ideal tenant is to market your rental to the public. But the second step is to identigy the the best tenant. Verifying the claims of applicants is one of the most crucial responsibilities of every managing agent in the City of Alexandria.

Nesbitt Realty examines the potential tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty and Management assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a honest, top tenant and at the same time having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:

  • Tenant Screening – Our family operation 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 sees it’s necessary to know the criminal and public court records of the possible renter on every rental property in 22304 in Alexandria. Landlords should be aware that nearly all other rental managers do not examine court records.
  • Landlord Reference – Nesbitt 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 applicant.

If accepted, the applicant’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.
