Trash outs... Freak u out at all?!!

We currently don't trash out with our main contracts.. But it looks like that will be changing soon. I'm sorta freaked out about the liability... These clients same remove it all.. But not personal property... But ya, ( remove it all ) uhhhm wtf?! How do you guys handle?

Try NO GET them to fall on their sword... Ask them for a definition of personal property in an Email. It was once told to me from FAS that ANY THING YES ANYTHING purchased was personal property. With that said There has to be some common sense but not too much I have herd horror stories like a mason jar worth 5K to t he former owners cuz it was aunt maybelles that she had since she came over on the mayflower OR a couch you would not let your dog sleep on worth 10K. Bottom line ask the REO company to tell you what is personals and if they are reluctant use EXTREME caution. AND BACK UP ALL PICTURES and BE DETAILED ! I URGE THIS HEAVILY got me outta the noose more than once !

Trash outs are easy. If it's borderline, leave everything, let them decide what is personal and what isn't.

No matter what, if a former tenant complains about losing something valuable, even though you were approved to trash it out, your probably liable. Just the business we are in.

Know your state laws. 5 Children was notorious for trashing out PRE-SALE. I turned down a LOT of TO's with then due to this. If any question find out if the property has TRULY went to sale or not. I can look it up in public records here. On an reo HERE after it's been posted for 15 days it's trash. Your results may vary...........

I had a company yesterday calling us to recruit. He told me they expect all contractors to repair roofs, electric and plumbing.. I asked if all their contractors are licensed and he said no. So I explained that it was a state law to be licensed and if he makes sure that all his contracted ppl are licensed. The. He said yes. I then laughed loudly.. Yea a friggin licensed electrician-plumber schleps around for you for nothing... PUUUH-LEEESE

Had that conversation with US Best about a year ago. They told me it was no big deal and since eveyone was doing it I should have no problems.

Just settled a lawsuit over "personal property" it was the service companies neglect of not reading an email and never notified my company. My insurance still paid a small amount. The case took approx 18 months.

Now everything is "personal property" in my opinion unless it's food or hazardous materials. Not my job to classify what's "junk" or "personal"
