Investigating applicants is one of the most essential responsibilities of any great management company in Northern Virginia.
Nesbitt Realty & Management examines the prospective renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a honest, stable renter and also meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt knows it's necessary to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every investment home in 22314 in the City of Alexandria. Owners should be aware that the majority of other managing agents do not check out court records.
- Credit History – The possible lessee's credit history informs us about the possible renter’s current and past performance in scored record of the possible renter's ability to repay debts and demonstrated responsibility in repaying debts. The possible renter’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.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty 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.
If accepted, the applicant’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 dwelling and community.
