What would you do?

Pre-Sale initial secure for a national. Utilities off, all blinds shut. Drill out back lock, personals are present. TV, couch, wooden furniture, etc. Nothing of high value, but personals nonetheless. Homeowner isn't living at property, unclear when they were there last. I put a new knob on back door, left and reported as occupied.

National is requesting that I put the drilled out knob back on since it's occupied, even if it will leave it occupied. I am saying I won't do that, as that will leave home unsecure.

Now they are saying that nobody living there means vacant, regardless of items.

Sounds like the siblings here. Because it is a pre-sale and NOT REO I would probably do as instructed making sure everything is in writing. One reason we quit working for the siblings.

Yeah, try to get that same rep on the phone after a claim is filed against you.
Your better off leaving the property secure with a contact sticker for them to call rather than an open door for anyone to go thru, especially since your client knows you were the last one there.

That is correct. Do nothing that has not been communicated nor approved in writing beforehand.

Is there some sort of contingency for "personals" being present at the property, in the agreement you signed with the company? I don't know anything about PP, but it would just seem logical to have something like that in the agreement I'd think.

Just wondering....

Exactly what I was thinking.... what if a claim that something is now "missing" is on its way (even though I'm sure you touched nothing) now that they know someone has been in there and the company knows it was the OP? :whistling

Sorry writing from phone so being brief,

Not the siblings
No personals limit on work order.
Company said stuff doesn't matter, only people living there.
I won't leave unsecured, but will finish work order as only things left are mow, signs, damages.
I tried to get straight answer while I was there but couldn't, was just told to submit order

Yeah, if I left unsecure, and someone else went in and took something, I would be liable (rightly so).

Always a risk of this happening, utilities were off, only trash outside, but blinds were drawn so couldn't see in.
