The first step for us to spot a solid tenant is to market your rental to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to identigy the the best renter. Checking out prospective renters is one of the most vital charges of any friendly property manager in 22202 in Arlington.
Our local brokerage check outs the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the prospective tenant’s future behavior will be the same. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, solid renter and also having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:
- 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.
- Application – After the applicant visits a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and check out all information included on the application. The applicant 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 prospective 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.
