New broom swept rules...............

This sounds like a sales clean to me......


" October 12, 2012

Attn: All contractors


RE: Clarification of Broom Swept Condition for FHA loans:


Five Brothers would like to clarify the meaning of broom swept condition, as there have been several discrepancies regarding what is to be included and what this entails.

First and foremost, the definition of placing a property in broom swept condition is making the property free of dust, dirt, hazardous materials or conditions, personal belongings, and interior and exterior debris. This is to be completed any time interior or exterior debris is removed at no extra charge.


To clarify this definition:

  • Countertops and hard surfaces such as appliances, sinks, and tubs should be wiped down
  • Toilets are to be cleaned and the winterization refreshed
  • All floors/carpets should be swept/vacuumed and free of all debris
  • Appliances are to be cleaned inside and out


In the event that an appliance is excessively dirty and requires cleaning above and beyond what is normally expected, a bid may be submitted. However, photos are required to justify it can not be cleaned as part of broom swept condition.

All of the above mentioned criteria requires before, during and after photos to document this work was completed. If the proper photos are not received, this will result in a kickback.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter,
Five Brothers Management"

So glad I don't work with the brothers. Only took a few jobs before they tried to talk me into being "permanent"........... they just wanted my money. lol

Told them to go ahead and give all the work to the other vendor they had "in my area".

They tried that back in 10 when I still worked for them.

I told them the same thing, pay up or it aint happening.
Then they lied to me and told me it was HUD guidelines.
I said OK show me............. they didn't and shortly after I got the dear John letter telling me to
have a nice life, they were done with my insubordination (cliff notes version).

Reason for inactive status: Excessive bidding; refusal to comply with pricing


I'm confused, aren't they the kings of bid bid bid bid bid every thing and any thing?

And then fired for refusing their pricing, doesn't sound like a independent contractor to me.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

LOL, I went back and found it in my email archives.
