Vetting prospective tenants is one of the most important tasks of every rental management company in Arlington, Virginia.
Nesbitt Realty & Management check outs the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be the same. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, top renter and also possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several simple formula including:
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty 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.
- Credit History – The prospective renter's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance as far as debts and other 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.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt 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 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 rental and community.
