Verifying the claims of applicants is one of the most vital elements of the successful property management of a rental property in the counties of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, and Falls Church.
Nesbitt Realty & Management scrutinize the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the potential tenant’s future behavior will be the same. The potential lessee should demonstrate a history of being a good, solid renter and meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it’s critical to know the criminal and public court records of the prospective renter on every rental in Northern Virginia. Real Estate Owners should be aware that nearly all other property managers do not scrutinize court records.
- Tenant Screening – Our tiny real estate company 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.
- Application – After the applicant takes a closer look at a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and scrutinize all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
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 investment townhouse and community.
