Leasing places is not about identifying tenants. It's about finding the a good lessee. Verifying the claims of applicants is one of the most vital tasks of every property manager in Alexandria.
Our family real estate company investigates the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty and Management assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a stable, reliable renter and meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt verifies job title, prospects for continued employment, salary and job status. 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.
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the potential renter’s current and past performance in scored record of the applicant's ability to repay debts and demonstrated responsibility in repaying debts. The possible renter’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.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty & Management sees it's critical to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every investment place of residence in Alexandria, Virginia. Property Owners should be aware that most other managing agents do not scrutinize court records.
If accepted, the applicant’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 home and community.
