Investigating potential renters is one of the most necessary duties of any professional rental manager in Arlington.
Our tiny real estate brokerage look ats the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the potential tenant’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a trustworthy, honest lessee and meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance as far as debts and other obligations. The possible 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 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.
- 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 prospective lessee’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 and community.
