The first step for us to shop the best renter is to advertise the listing to the most people possible. But the second step is to find the a dependable lessee. Qualifying prospective renters is one of the most critical responsibilities of any Northern Virginia rental management company in Fairfax, Virginia.
Nesbitt scrutinizes the prospective renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty and Management assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The potential tenant should demonstrate a history of being a honest, honest lessee while meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt verifies prospects for continued employment, job status, job title and salary. Depending upon the applicant'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.
- Application – After the applicant stop bys a investment detached home, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and examine all information included on the application. The prospective renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's vital to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in Northern Virginia. Property Owners should be aware that many other property managers do not look at court records.
If accepted, the potential lessee’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 residence and community.
