The first step for Nesbitt Realty to discover a good renter is to market your investment end unit townhouse to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to identigy the a solid lessee. Checking out potential renters is one of the most necessary tasks of any reliable management company in Northern Virginia.
Our family real estate business look ats the prospective lessee’s past behavior. With that in mind, our real estate company assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same. The possible renter should demonstrate a history of being a honest, good lessee and possessing the financial capacity to handle the rent. Our background checking process is founded on several elements including:
- Income Verification – Nesbitt confirms job status, prospects for continued employment, job title and salary. Depending upon the prospective renter'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 visits a rental property, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our award-winning real estate brokerage can verify and scrutinize all information included on the application. The possible lessee pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Landlord Reference – Nesbitt Realty utilizes public information, tax records and other research and verification to ensure that we're talking to actual landlord about actual rental history of the possible renter.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the lessee with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental property and community.
