The first step for us to find a good renter is to advertise the listing to the most people possible. But the second step is to find the a dependable renter.
Our tiny real estate brokerage investigates the potential renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the possible lessee’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The potential tenant should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, honest renter and at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:
- Application – After the applicant take a closer look ats a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty and Management can verify and look at all information included on the application. The potential renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt establishes salary, prospects for continued employment, job title and job status. Depending upon the possible lessee's debt load, a tenant needs to earn a minimum of 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty & Management knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the prospective tenant on every investment unit in 22314 in the City of Alexandria. Landlords should be aware that nearly all other rental managers do not investigate court records.
If accepted, the prospective lessee’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 property and community.
