Long as the nationals don't have their hands in the cookie jar it probably won't be too bad.

Its called manythings but a FAS cluster fornication it is . Tenant occoupied is what they called it and it is a JOKE. Flat rate repairs like 600 for a hot water heater GAS to boot !. I had one thatEVERY TIME the tenant wanted hot water they had to light it EVERYTIME. The pricing was Terrible and I couild NOT get a professional plumber to even stop laughing when I told them what the national wanted to pay. Sure a contractor can put in a hot water heater but hwere it is AGAINST CODE if you are NOT a plumber. Needless to say it was a great opportunity to piss off FAS and deny work because it did not pay.

The properties are not necessarily tennant only it could be getting rented back to the former owners... Does this HELP ??

I think it was in '10 or '11 that I saw some numbers for such a thing.

You are right, the ONLY person making any money is the nationals.
Kinda like it is today doing P&P.

I heard Altisource was going to get involved with this and we tried to get on board as a GC, and got a huge run around (submit a power point presentation, "we need more photo's" etc.) afer reading the reply's I'm glad we did'nt try that hard ...

Tenant Lease is the term. A few years ago we submitted a price list for all the services that were required. The pay was absolutely ridiculous and we said NO. The contractor who did get awarded the jobs quit within the first 3 months. Got tired of having to unclog toilet at 2 a.m. when the slob flushed wads of t.p. and it overflowed. You had to guarantee 24/7 availibility within 1 hour of tenant call. The call center would call 1:15 after the call-in to verify you were there and if not the pay was forfeited and NO excuse for bad weather OR you couldnt gain access to condo units etc etc. Another cluster *!

Had a similar offer made to us with all sort of binders and time requirements. I had a large portfolio of rental houses and multi family units so I know the work involved and the ROI. There is no chance in Benghazi I would have someone dictating to me how it should be done for the money they offered.

I'm not even going to get out of bed to pump a basement @$55/ft. I just pumped 9" of category 1 water Tuesday for $240 net. I let them talk me down from my original bid because I was at the property for other services I could do while the pump was running.

It may say Contractor's price list but it isn't mine. Every few months or so some of our brokers or locals will request a price sheet from us for standard work, so we update ours and send them over. I am at the point (either hardened from years of this crap or maybe my unsociable side is just growing) where I don't accept any price sheets anymore.
Send an electrical or plumbing line item price list to your local union hall and see what happens.
