Renting properties is not about discovering lessees. It’s about finding a dependable renter. Vetting potential renters is one of the most critical aspects of every managing agent in McLean.
Nesbitt Realty & Management looks at the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our tiny business assumes the potential tenant’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being an honest, solid renter while meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty & Management verifies salary, prospects for continued employment, job status, and job title. Depending upon the applicant’s debt load, a tenant needs to earn not less than 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for a rental.
- Application – After the potential lessee views a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and examine all information included on the application. The prospective lessee pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Our family-run real estate business knows it’s critical to know the criminal and public court records of the possible renter on every rental in 22101. Investors should be aware that most other rental managers do not examine court records.
If accepted, the prospective 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 property and community.
