Verifying the claims of possible tenants is one of the most important duties of the successful management services in the City of Alexandria of a rental in the counties of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax and Falls Church.
The first step for us to spot a good renter is to market your rental to the public. But the second step is to identigy the the best-possible renter.
Our award-winning real estate business check outs the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the possible tenant’s future behavior will be the same. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a stable, trustworthy renter and at the same time meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty verifies salary, job title, prospects for continued employment 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 – Nesbitt Realty knows it's crucial to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in the City of Alexandria. Landlords should be aware that many other management companys do not check out court records.
- Tenant Screening – Our family-run business 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 potential lessee’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 property and community.
