FAS has started decline for photos not being date and time stamped

anyone starting to see this?
myself do not have a problem with stamping the date on photos having been doing this for years. But not sure why they need them time stamped. Last time I checked I am self employed. I do not think it`s any of there bussiness what time my guys get there or how long it takes them to do a said job!


I`m going to call FAS about declines and lien properties. I guess I`m done with!

there seems to be a lack of understanding from many that get into the property preservation industry. yes, you are self employed. yes, you can perform work how you would like to perform it. yes, you can schedule your work to be completed when you want to have it completed.

HOWEVER, there are guidelines and standards which must be followed if you want to receive work. turn in work late, turn in work without proper photos, turn in work that doesnt meet client standards, and YES you will be charged back or receive reduced pay for that work. wrong or right, doesnt matter. it unfortunately that is the nature of this business. this is what you signed up for. it is what it is.

there is more effort spent in complaining (whether about the work that needs to be done, the pay, etc), trying to fight the system, placing leins on properties, etc instead of either finding a way to make it work or not work for you and your business.

Lesson should be to know what you're getting into when getting into this industry or any industry for that matter.

Do you work for FAS?
Seriously, where are the TRUE P&P Professionals that made this board what it used to be?????????????????
Seems all the responses these days are from NON P&P guys that babble nonsense that 'might' work in their profession, but doesn't even remotely apply to ours or people that sound like the folks I talk to at the National companies every day!!

no, i dont work for FAS... I am just stating facts. There are some of us that find ways to make a decent living in this industry. is it easy? no. is it fun? definitely not. but there is money to be made if you understand how the system works and if you are willing to accept the fact that this now and not 5 to 10 years ago when you could get paid 60 bucks for a lock change.

prices are lower. standards are higher. time frames are shorter. its discouraging, however its a lot better than working minimum wage at a fast food joint. just need to figure out how to make it work for you, become more efficient, and make money doing it. clients will not change. you know that. i know that. so yes, it is what it is.

Activepp:your responce would make some us thing that you work for them(FAS). IF you are a contractor working out in the feild,and doing work for FAS. you would know that FAS is alway changing rules.
I for yrs have just accepted the fact that I was going tohave a number declines and charge backs from them.

I do not need anybody(U) telling what I need to do to make money in PP. I`m not new to this I have work FAS for over 12yrs and there a crying shame from what they use to be.

I started this forum asking if anybody else was seeing decline do to no time stamp photos. Not to have someone tell me how to run my company!

As for me leining the property, I can and will!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You clearly don't have a clue!!! Do it thier way and you are making minimum wage. These companies think that they can get professionals to do the work for what they pay, yeah right. Just start your recruiting at the burger joint and avoid the bullcrap. At least then you know what you got. As for the experienced pp guys,we all left for greener pastures. Have fun talking to fng's that don't know squat. Moles moles moles.

when everyone says enough is enough then it'll stop,until then everyone needs to do like i spoke with 1 earlier p+p is not what it use to be so you need to find other avenues to make money.
companies and clients are gonna expect more and pay will go down,i see it happening everyday,and most now do require date stamped photos

Star baby- have you used the app? I was totally against it at first because it's basically a tracking device lol, but I started seeing my approvals in 2 days. Also, the photos are super grainy on their end giving a little leeway on debris/landscape. Have you been busy lately? I have been a vendor for 5 years in Southern California and it's never been this slow for us! I don't know if I'm being punished for my large w/o or it's just actually slow. The inconsistencies are killing me

Not sure what app. is?

I have been pretty busy here. I`m just getting tryied of games and constently changing rules with FAS.

My biggest problem with time stamp is when I send one of my guy out he may doing 5 or 6 small jobs. one maybe for FAS and rest for others. If I set up to stamp do this it`s do it for all them. or have to us two camaras. FAS thinks there the only one I work for!

Get a 2nd camera to be used only on FAS jobs. Cheaper than buying a new damn smart phone every 6 months.
