The first step for us to find the best-possible renter is to advertise the listing to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to find the a solid renter. Checking the backgrounds of applicants is one of the most vital charges of the successful property management of a rental property in Arlington.
Nesbitt look ats the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, trustworthy lessee and at the same time meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the prospective renter’s current and past performance in meeting their financial obligations. The applicant’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.
- Application – After the applicant discover more abouts a investment unit, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and check out all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- 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 possible renter’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.
