Renting interior row/townhouses is not about hunting for tenants. It's about finding the the best-possible renter. Verifying the claims of applicants is one of the most crucial charges of any knowledgeable management company in 22305.
Nesbitt check outs the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our real estate brokerage assumes the prospective lessee’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a top, reliable tenant and also meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Application – After the prospective lessee tours a rental, 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 prospective tenant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Credit History – The potential lessee's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance with regards to debts and other financial obligations. 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.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty & Management checks and confirms prospects for continued employment, salary, job title and job status. Depending upon the possible renter'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 prospective 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 property and community.
