Leasing condos is not about identifying renters. It's about finding the the best-possible renter. Checking out applicants is one of the most critical duties of every managing agent in 22206 in Arlington.
Nesbitt examines the possible lessee’s past behavior. With that in mind, our brokerage assumes the possible lessee’s future behavior will be the same. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a trustworthy, solid tenant while at the same time meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty & Management utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual owner about actual rental history of the potential renter.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's essential to know the criminal and public court records of the possible tenant on every rental home in 22206. Property Owners should be aware that almost all other rental managers do not check out court records.
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance in scored record of the possible renter's ability to repay debts and demonstrated responsibility in repaying debts. The applicant’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.
If accepted, the prospective lessee’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 and community.
