With Safeguard, the grass cuts are included in the P&P contract. If you can cut the grass within the allowable on an initial secure, you have to cut it. You can bid grass higher than 12" on CV, FNMA, FMC, and VA's, but on FHA properties you can call from site for overheight approval. The only way to get more money on the other loan types with overheight grass is the property has to have a documented citation. You send the citation in on the w/o submission, or you don't get paid. Safeguard splits their recut efforts between presale properties and postsale properties. Safeguard hires grass cut vendors in local areas to perform presale recurs, and the postsale recuts are performed by maintenance vendors.
