The first step for us to spot the best lessee is to market your rental property to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to identigy the a good lessee. Investigating prospective tenants is one of the most crucial aspects of every management company in 22305 in Alexandria.
Nesbitt scrutinizes the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our brokerage assumes the possible lessee’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The possible renter should demonstrate a history of being a stable, honest tenant and also demonstrated financial capacity. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Application – After the applicant inspects a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and investigate all information included on the application. The potential lessee pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty 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.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty verifies prospects for continued employment, job status, job title and salary. Depending upon the applicant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn not less than 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
If accepted, the possible renter’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.
