The first step for us to find a good renter is to advertise the listing to the widest-possible audience. But the second step is to find the the best renter. Qualifying prospective tenants is one of the most necessary duties of every rental manager in 22303 in Alexandria.
Nesbitt Realty investigates the possible renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same. The prospective tenant should demonstrate a history of being a honest, good renter and at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Application – After the applicant visits a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our team 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 – Our local real estate business verifies prospects for continued employment, job title, job status and salary. Depending upon the possible lessee'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.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty & Management screens tenants with a combination of checking credit history, background, eviction and criminal screening services as well as our own efforts to collect information needed to confirm and process the application.
If accepted, the potential 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.
