Qualifying possible tenants is one of the most vital tasks of every rental property manager in Alexandria.
Nesbitt Realty examines the possible tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our team assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a honest, top tenant and meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Landlord Reference – Our family-run brokerage 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 potential renter.
- Application – After the applicant stop bys a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our real estate brokerage can verify and check out all information included on the application. The potential renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty 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 prospective tenant’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 place of residence and community.
