Perfect spot for this.....I often "inquire" on CL ads to see what the pulse or heartbeat is out there. Check this horsecrap out.....

Here is what Taylor and Son Services offers to the contractor.
We work for MCS, LPS, Five Brothers, Alti Source, AFAS, NFR, M&M Mortgage, and Safeguard. We run a decent amount of volume in the state.
We take care of all bidding, photo uploading, invoicing etc. All the sub has to do is the work in the field. We use Pruvan (phone app) where the photos come directly to our offices computers. Most of the work will be LPS, MCS, and Safeguard.
We have 75 + contractors for reference if needed
We have a home makeover showroom here in Wylie Texas where we sell carpet, cabinets, and countertops. Taylor and Son has several different revenues of income – so the contractor should never be worried about not receiving payment.
We pay 2 weeks after the work has been completed - direct deposit.
Please sign and return the following items:
Background check authorization form
W9
Direct Deposit form
Vendor Contract

I also attached the client pricing. All clients take a 25% discount then we run a 60(sub) – 40 split.

Good grief. That's a small 55% discount. Crooks.

Answer them all, check out their

licensing. If you can get signed on without giving out your bank info , get signed on learn their clients, and property list. Now you have a few tools to effect the outcome. I will make SG fail in my area, if i have to do it myself. I have yet to find a national licensed in my state. There are also tons of contractors working for them, with registered LLC's and No contractor license in my state. I check everyone. Even the companies I consider good solid companies, no license to operate in my state, however a few of them would be capitalized enough to be exempt, but many of them are not. I better get another hobby.

I am the only licensed guy in my county but every time all the nationals call me like safeguard they say we don't require a license. I tell them I know you don't but the county does.all of these jerkoff are illegal with no insurance.i send them the copy of the county law book on contracting and I get nothing back.I lost a basement rehab filled with mold to a unlicensed company out of long island they underbid and did it on a Saturday.i seriously am considering turning them all in when I see them.I have already contacted my state senator months ago about the unlicensed preservation issue and still nothing.The county consumer protection locks guys up all the time

Local CL ad

I found the following ad this evening on Craigslist. About sums it up!

Property Preservation

Looks like another nationwide property preservation company is looking to screw someone ALL of these companies are a scam. I am doing my part as an American and trying to stop these people from screwing guys who are trying to make a living. You will be screwed....I am sorry....you were warned.

compensation: no pay

Since Safeguard took over FNMA, every week there is a new

order mill trying to sub out the same work. Some of them are beginning to disguise their ads here also, sometimes giving their name sometimes changing the wording. It really is bizarre to watch.

United,

I would turn them in. Demo permits? Licensed contractor?

Here the REALTORS have HAD ENOUGH of subpar work. These contractors are so brainwashed or ignorant that they truly do not understand the Realtors have the Final say so on quality inspections. Last week I was with a Realtor that got a phone call from a Pi**ed off contractor yelling about the work hasn't been "signed off" as being done: 2 hot Water heater replacements, 1 entire roof replacement, 1 Breaker panel replacement. Realtors reply was simple and to the point "just as soon as the Permits from the LICENSED CONTRACTOR" is supplied I will sign off and you will be paid" No permits were pulled and verified by the City Building Dept.

Realtors are figuring it out that they are not immune to liability on a job.

I talked with one of my brokers last week. He's going over every Rehab with a fine tooth comb and kicking crap back. Green way, at least I think that is who he said it was, sent a contractor to replace a tile floor. They replaced it with sheet vinyl that had a tile pattern. Someone isn't getting paid or will be ripping that floor out to put ceramic in it.

I kicked a drywall job back and told him the numbers were too low for me to a good job. Within 24 hours, another $1070 showed up.
