The first step for us to identify the best tenant 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 potential tenants is one of the most crucial charges of every property manager in Alexandria, Virginia.
Nesbitt Realty scrutinizes the possible renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The possible tenant should demonstrate a history of being a honest, solid lessee and at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty investigates salary, prospects for continued employment, job title and job status. Depending upon the applicant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Our small business knows it's essential to know the criminal and public court records of the prospective renter on every rental in 22304 in Alexandria. Landlords should be aware that the majority of other rental managers do not scrutinize court records.
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the potential tenant’s current and past performance in scored record of the prospective renter's ability to repay debts and demonstrated responsibility in repaying debts. The possible lessee’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.
If accepted, the potential renter’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.
