The first step for us to discover the best-possible tenant is to advertise the listing to the most people possible. But the second step is to find the a good renter. Checking the backgrounds of prospective renters is one of the most crucial elements of the successful property management of a rental in Springfield.
Nesbitt look ats the potential renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty and Management assumes the potential renter’s future behavior will be the same. The prospective lessee should demonstrate a history of being a stable, honest tenant while meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the prospective renter’s current and past performance as far as debts and other obligations. 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.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty & Management establishes job title, prospects for continued employment, salary and job status. Depending upon the potential tenant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn not less than 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Landlord Reference – Our family business utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual owner about actual rental history of the applicant.
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.
