Leasing units is not about spotting renters. It's about finding the a good renter. Vetting prospective lessees is one of the most important responsibilities of every rental management company in Alexandria.
Nesbitt Realty look ats the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a trustworthy, top renter while at the same time possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:
- Credit History – The potential renter's credit history informs us about the possible renter’s current and past performance repaying debts and other responsibilities. 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.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty & Management sees it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in Alexandria, Virginia. Landlords should be aware that most other managing agents do not scrutinize court records.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt confirms prospects for continued employment, job title, job status and salary. Depending upon the possible renter's debt load, a tenant needs to earn a minimum of 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
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.
