Leasing detached homes is not about choosing lessees. It’s about finding the the best renter. Vetting applicants is one of the most essential chores of the successful management services of a rental in Northern Virginia.
Nesbitt Realty looks at the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The potential renter should demonstrate a history of being a stable, top renter while meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty & Management 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.
- Landlord Reference – Our local operation 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 prospective lessee.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt verifies salary, job status, job title and prospects for continued employment. Depending upon the applicant’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.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the lessee with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental and community.
