The first step for us to hunt for a good renter is to advertise the listing to the most people possible. But the second step is to find the a solid renter. Vetting potential renters is one of the most necessary aspects of any fine rental manager in 22204.
Nesbitt examines the potential tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty and Management assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be the same. The prospective lessee should demonstrate a history of being a honest, top renter while at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Income Verification – Our family brokerage checks out job status, job title, prospects for continued employment and salary. Depending upon the potential renter'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.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's critical to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every investment place of residence in Northern Virginia. Investors should be aware that most other rental managers do not check out court records.
- Application – After the potential renter views a rental unit, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our small brokerage can verify and look at all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
If accepted, the potential tenant’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.
