The first step for us to find the best choice of renter is to advertise the listing to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to find the the best-possible lessee. Checking out applicants is one of the most vital chores of the successful property management in the City of Alexandria of a investment abode in Northern Virginia.
Nesbitt Realty examines the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The possible lessee should demonstrate a history of being a good, stable renter while at the same time meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:
- Application – After the prospective renter take a closer look ats a investment abode, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our tiny real estate business can verify and scrutinize all information included on the application. The potential lessee pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty & Management knows it’s vital to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in the City of Alexandria. Landlords should be aware that most other rental management companys do not examine court records.
- Credit History – The potential tenant’s credit history informs us about the applicant’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.
If accepted, the possible 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.
