The first step for our small operation to spot the best renter is to market your rental property to the public. But the second step is to identify the great renter. Investigating applicants is one of the most essential charges of any solid rental management company in 22102 in Fairfax County.
Nesbitt Realty & Management examines the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the possible renter’s future behavior will be the same. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a solid, top renter while possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:
- Credit History – The applicant’s credit history informs us about the potential tenant’s current and past performance as far as debts and other obligations. The possible lessee’s credit report also tells us their monthly debt and shows their previous addresses (which we compare to addresses listed on the application). An applicant must have acceptable credit to qualify.
- Income Verification – Our family business verifies job status, salary, job title and prospects for continued employment. Depending upon the prospective renter’s debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for a rental.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty utilizes public information, tax records, and other research and verification to ensure that we’re talking to the actual property owner about the 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 tenant with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental place of residence and community.
