Safeguard

So, grass cutting season is ramping up here in the southeast (outside of GA and FL) and I know that every neighborhood I go to for my current clients there is at least ONE BAC property managed by Screwguard.

What would happen if "we" photographed the property (from the street of course) showing SG deficiencies and sent DIRECTLY to BAC asset managers? OR what would happen if we filed a code violation on the BAC property?

What would happen?

I have one across the street from one of my properties. About 10 CY of debris in the yard - old couch, table and other stuff I cannot make out, and the grass gets mowed every few months whether it needs it or not.

No edging, no weed trimming, nothing. A neighbor told me he has had to call the cops several times because the house has been broken into.

That depends. Banks will always choose the lowest cost route. If it costs them $50/month for a violation versus $85/bimonthly to cut it, they will happily pay the fine.

I talked with a code inforcement inspector for Milwaukee. He said they loved BAC. They charged them $325 per month for a city violation. That was the only way they could get them to make a half azzed attempt at maintaining properties. As a result, I got tons of work last year curing violations in Milwaukee. That was the only place I ever mowed to cure a violation......

They the banks,this was the hole reason to push the account and liability off on to the servicer.

We all saw this early last year,i even said some to the boss at a LPS conference that the BAC account was coning of for grabs,but they didn't believe it.

Chase has turned over to outside servicer.
Wells Forgo is thinking of doing it to.

Its all about turning liability and responsibility over to the next fellow.

Someone "cares"; someone has "metric" that a bonus is tied to--that person must care.

It's only getting worse. SG has come out with maps that doubled in size. They told me today, "take it our leave it". I just lost a municipal contract, and really don't want to lose all my properties, thus starting over in the biz. If I do that, I am going to go in a different route. It's very frustrating, I try to get to upper management and talk to them, but get sent to the same person who doesn't give a crap each time I call.
