The first step for Nesbitt Realty to find the best tenant is to market your rental property to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to identigy the a dependable lessee. Checking out applicants is one of the most critical tasks of every rental manager in 22303 in Alexandria.
Our family real estate brokerage check outs the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same. The potential lessee should demonstrate a history of being a solid, top tenant while at the same time having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt confirms job status, salary, job title and prospects for continued employment. 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.
- Application – After the potential renter tours a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our real estate brokerage can verify and look at all information included on the application. The prospective lessee pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual property owner about actual rental history of the applicant.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the tenant with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental place of residence and community.
