In my state PPR work orders that request you to enter the property are ILLEGAL IF the property has personals in it !!! It is Criminal Trespass ! Even if requested by the bank !!! Why you ask ?? It is no different than a land lord popping over to see a Tennant (unannounced) and doing a walk through. I just thought you all would like to know. Look up your Revised codes for your state and read them !! If the property is not open to t he public it is trespass.

This has been verified by a lawyer and as I am finding out the hard way.

Thanks, I'll look into it.
So are you in some kind of trouble over this?
I do know that most all mortgages come with a clause that states the mortgage holder has the right to protect & preserve their asset as they see the need (that's where the term "P&P" originated).

I thought so too but state law I guess trumps that. This really has me wondering if it is worth it. and how many PP vendors are aware of this .

I may start lobbying for a amendment to the Law or a change to it. I have to assume it is a OLD law and did not take into consideration the current mess we are in.

From here out I am getting it in writing from a person at the property pres company that it is OK for me to enter the property. I did get verbal approval but they are denying that.

did you call from site to okay secure the property ?
if you got verbal okay was it followed by email ?
fed law set standards state laws drill that down and then municipality law is the definition
