The first step for us to discover the best renter is to market your rental property to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to identigy the a solid tenant. Qualifying applicants is one of the most crucial responsibilities of every rental manager in Arlington, Virginia.
Nesbitt investigates the prospective tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, Nesbitt Realty assumes the possible renter’s future behavior will be the same. The possible renter should demonstrate a history of being a reliable, good renter while at the same time meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several pillars including:
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance in meeting their financial obligations. 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.
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt Realty & Management 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.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Our family real estate brokerage sees it's necessary to know the criminal and public court records of the potential tenant on every rental property in 22202 in Arlington County. Real Estate Owners should be aware that most other rental managers do not check out court records.
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 residence and community.
