More new rules...................

RE: FHA Accounts and Conveyance Issues

Please be advised that we received confirmation on two additional items that are considered conveyance issues. The following must be addressed for conveyance:

Cable Wires- Any cable wires coming out of the walls that are not tacked down are considered a trip hazard and must be addressed. If the cable is connected to an outlet, simply unscrew and remove it as part of debris. If the cable wire is coming out of the wall (no outlet), then simply tack it to the baseboard so that it is no longer a hazard. This work needs to be completed at no additional charge while you are at the property performing other work.

Curtains/Sheers- These are considered debris and should be removed when you complete debris removal and place property in broom swept condition. The only window coverings that should be left in place are blinds that are in good condition (not broken).

This work needs to be completed at no additional charge while you are at the property performing other work.

I have read that line again and again over the last 7 years and that is one of the major reasons I have opened my back door and put my foot in the asp of these snake oil companies. Got so tired of having to take more photos, fill out more forms, do more work, always out of my own pocket.

Clue 1- You make your money off the top, not the bottom.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to trip and fall tomorrow and call the lawyer on Tuesday. Thanks again! I would like to retire early.

Always being asked to do more for less, it never seems to end...

The other day I was told to go back and clean the fridge and the stove at my own expense as it is part of the "broom swept condition". I have never run into this before. Any truth to this one?

I would take action pictures showing you sweeping them out with a broom and then let them know its now broom swept.

I am not joking.

Jokes on them because standard household cable wire is steel plated with copper and an aluminum foil/braid shield.

It has virtually no scrap value.
