Nesbitt Realty & Management investigates the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The possible renter should demonstrate a history of being a honest, good lessee while at the same time having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several simple formula including:

  • 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.
  • Application – After the applicant tours a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and scrutinize all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
  • Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty & Management utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual landlord about actual rental history of the applicant.

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 investment dwelling and community.
