Checking the backgrounds of prospective lessees is one of the most essential aspects of every property manager in Alexandria.
Nesbitt examines the applicant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our real estate business assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be similar. The possible renter should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, honest tenant while demonstrated financial capacity. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:
- 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 applicant.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Our small real estate brokerage knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the prospective renter on every investment property in Fairfax County. Property Owners should be aware that the majority of other rental managers do not investigate court records.
- Application – After the applicant visits a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that our team can verify and investigate all information included on the application. The applicant pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
If accepted, the applicant’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 and community.
