Checking the backgrounds of applicants is one of the most vital duties of any terrific rental property manager in Northern Virginia.
Nesbitt examines the prospective renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, our family real estate business assumes the possible tenant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The possible tenant should demonstrate a history of being a top, reliable renter as well as having the income and debt-ratio to manage rent. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the potential lessee’s current and past performance in meeting their financial obligations. 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.
- Landlord Reference – Our tiny real estate company utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual investor about actual rental history of the prospective renter.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty & Management knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the prospective renter on every investment unit in Alexandria, Virginia. Real Estate Owners should be aware that nearly all other rental property managers do not investigate court records.
If accepted, the applicant’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 unit and community.
