Renting Out homes is not about finding renters. It's about finding the a good renter. Checking the backgrounds of possible renters is one of the most important duties of every rental manager in the City of Alexandria.
Nesbitt Realty & Management examines the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our operation assumes the prospective renter’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a good, top tenant and also meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several basic tactics including:
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental home in Alexandria, Virginia. Landlords should be aware that nearly all other property managers do not look at court records.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty & Management checks out job title, salary, prospects for continued employment and job status. Depending upon the applicant's debt load, a tenant needs to earn at least 3 to 4 times the monthly rent in gross income to qualify for rental.
- Application – After the applicant learn more abouts a investment home, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty can verify and investigate all information included on the application. The possible renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
If accepted, the possible lessee’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 residence and community.
