How Nesbitt Realty Investigates The Background Of Your Possible Tenant In Alexandria, Virginia

The first step for us to discover the perfect renter is to advertise the listing to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to find the the best-possible lessee. Vetting applicants is one of the most essential responsibilities of every rental manager in 22301.

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

  • Application – After the prospective renter discover more abouts a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our operation can verify and look at all information included on the application. The potential lessee pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
  • Tenant Screening – Our award-winning 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.
  • Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty establishes prospects for continued employment, job status, salary and job title. Depending upon the potential renter's debt load, a tenant needs to earn a minimum of 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.

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 rental and community.
