The first step for our family real estate business to shop the best lessee is to market your rental property to the most people possible. But the second step is to identigy the the best tenant. Verifying the claims of applicants is one of the most critical charges of any responsive rental manager in 22305.
Nesbitt Realty investigates the possible tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the potential lessee’s future behavior will be similar. The potential tenant should demonstrate a history of being a good, solid tenant while at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Landlord Reference – Our small real estate brokerage utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual investor about actual rental history of the applicant.
- Application – After the potential lessee find out more abouts a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and examine all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt checks out prospects for continued employment, job title, job status and salary. Depending upon the possible lessee's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 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 investment duplex and community.
