Checking the backgrounds of applicants is one of the most important chores of the successful rental management services in 20191 in Reston of a rental in Northern Virginia.
Nesbitt Realty & Management check outs the potential renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, our tiny real estate brokerage assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The potential renter should demonstrate a history of being a good, reliable lessee and also possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several hard truths including:
- Credit History – The prospective renter's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance repaying debts and other responsibilities. The potential lessee’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.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual investor about actual rental history of the potential lessee.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Our local real estate brokerage knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the prospective renter on every rental abode in 20191. Owners should be aware that most other management companys do not check out court records.
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.
