How Nesbitt Realty Investigates The Background Of Your Possible Lessee In Fairfax

Leasing homes is not about choosing lessees. It’s about finding the the best-possible tenant. Vetting possible tenants is one of the most crucial chores of any well-informed rental manager in 22032.

Nesbitt examines the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The potential renter should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, good renter and also meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:

  • Credit History – The prospective renter’s credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance in meeting their financial obligations. The prospective tenant’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.
  • Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty sees it’s critical to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every investment detached in Fairfax County. Property Owners should be aware that the majority of other rental managers do not look at court records.
  • Application – After the applicant learn more abouts a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and look at all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.

If accepted, the prospective tenant’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 place and community.
