Nesbitt Realty doesn't “sell” rental places. We market rentals to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia to find a good renter. How do you find the the best renter for your rental in Alexandria? Vetting potential lessees is one of the most crucial tasks of the successful property management in Alexandria of a rental in Virginia near the District.
Nesbitt investigates the prospective lessee’s past behavior. With that in mind, our operation assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a trustworthy, solid tenant as well as demonstrated financial capacity. Our background checking process is founded on several conventions including:
- Application – After the applicant tours a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our operation can verify and examine all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
- Income Verification – Nesbitt Realty confirms salary, job title, job status and prospects for continued employment. Depending upon the potential tenant'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.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt 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 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 place and community.
