Investigating potential tenants is one of the most important chores of the successful rental property management of a investment unit in the counties of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax and Falls Church.
Renting Out places is not about discovering renters. It's about finding the the best renter.
Nesbitt Realty look ats the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a solid, solid lessee while meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance in scored record of the applicant's ability to repay debts and demonstrated responsibility in repaying debts. 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 and Management can verify and examine all information included on the application. The potential renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt 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 applicant.
If accepted, the possible tenant’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.
