HUD Third Party Question

Work for MCS and have been told/forced to pass thru HUD properties at cost plus hours to supervise take photos. This is especially so on Wells Fargo properties. Is this a HUD mandate? Is it legal?

It is not a HUD or WF thing - And yes, it is legal.
But that doesn't mean you have accept it. Corelogic used to do that too. I'm guessing Mr. Brown has introduced the practice to MCS as a way to generate more profit off the backs of their vendors.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

I'm sorry you said "Told/forced". In you post are you a employee of MCS?

No a contractor. The forcing is reduced allocation less orders or play ball.

Less orders from aka as sounds like a winner to me. As a matter of fact you can't be too careful you might ask them if there is anyway to get less than zero. You know to be sure you don't have to deal with anymore of their ignorance.

Tell them to pay you for the work they request or you'll drop their allocation.
Seriously, find a service company that doesn't waste your time with this crap. These kind of tactics were very common back in the height of this industry when contractors were a dime a dozen - Anymore, if you are an experienced professional, the nat's/reg's will usually not even attempt that kind of crap in fear of pissing you off & losing your coverage.

Example: I've been doing 5-10K a month with the smaller of the 2 regionals that I still work with. Yesterday afternoon I got an email stating that one of my invoices was being cut by $7 (not too bad, right?). I emailed back that I would not accept that adjustment, and that for wasting my time in dealing with a company that would do that, would they please delete me as an active vendor. Fast forward to this morning - The owner of the company called personally to apologize and beg me to continue coverage for them.

If everyone else that considers themselves a professional in this industry would do the same & stand up for themselves like that I suspect that there'd be lots of happier contractors & this forum would go out of business.

That's what it takes though- for the new guys, if you give up $7, then it's $25, then $50, then it's a free for all. Your invoice should be your invoice. If it was your amount required when you did it, don't cut it. Once they know they can cut it, you're finished. I wish more contractors would stand up for themselves like that, it would help all of us enjoy a better environment.
