The first step for us to hunt for the great renter is to advertise the listing to the most people possible. But the second step is to find the a solid renter. Checking out possible renters is one of the most vital charges of any professional management company in Alexandria.
Nesbitt Realty & Management scrutinizes the possible renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be similar. The potential lessee should demonstrate a history of being a honest, honest renter as well as demonstrated financial capacity. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:
- Application – After the applicant check outs a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and look at all information included on the application. The applicant 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.
- Credit History – The prospective renter's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance in scored record of the applicant's ability to repay debts and demonstrated responsibility in repaying debts. The potential renter’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 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 and community.
