Leasing homes is not about digging up renters. It’s about finding a good renter. Verifying the claims of applicants is one of the most necessary tasks of the successful property management in Fairfax County of a rental like 1450 Emerson Ave #103.
Nesbitt Realty & Management check out the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The possible tenant should demonstrate a history of being a top, top renter as well as having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt checks and confirms prospects for continued employment, job status, salary and job title. Depending upon the potential tenant’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.
- Credit History – The applicant’s credit history informs us about the possible tenant’s current and past performance in the scored record of the possible lessee’s ability to repay debts and demonstrated responsibility in repaying debts. The applicant’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 – Our family operation sees it’s necessary to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in 22101. Owners should be aware that most other managing agents do not scrutinize court records.
If accepted, the possible tenant’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 and community.
