Nesbitt check outs the potential renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the possible lessee’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a top, solid renter while at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:

  • Tenant Screening – Our local real estate company 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.
  • Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty sees it's essential to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in Alexandria. Landlords should be aware that many other property managers do not examine court records.
