I got an order last week from a job I had done the previous week. I had been to the property several times over the last months for various things. Mold abatement, electric check, grass cuts etc. I finally got the order to go change all existing locks, clean it out and perform all work to place the property in conveyance condition. After completing the work order a few days later I get another one telling me to "return to property" to secure the garage. The problem is over the last several months I have placed numerous bids to remove the 75ft tree that had fallen on the garage and flattened it like a pancake!! Now the question is, Do I go take MORE pics of the 2 ft tall garage with the 75 ft tree laying on it or should I just go back slap a hasp and padlock on the door laying on the ground and call it a day? I am tempting to do the latter

They want you to secure the garage so nobody gets hurt playing on tree or garage. You need to install security fencing around the entire tree. Once that is done you need to cover the tree and garage to prevent any garage roof leaks with tarp, bid to rebuild and/or demo garage. THEN put a P/H on the entry door and on the overhead door :)

You forgot the bid to demolish once all securing has been completed

If you do the latter you could be held liable and have to remove the tree at your own cost. I would contact my client discuss with them the specifics of this particular situation and get something in writing stating how to proceed.

It's probably their system somehow notifying the updater that there is a garage present, but has not been secured. So they blindly send the email. I'm sure a simple escalation to whomever your rep is would solve it.

Well it's either that, or the updater looked at your order so in depth they realized there was a garage there, hadn't been previously secured, and you didn't do it on this trip.

Was this a SG BAC special project for ICC condition?

is this a BAC normal type of situation? I honestly have had 4 work orders in 3 weeks to go winterize and change locks and re secure the same damn house . all diff work orders and ive called and asked why and just get told it needs to get done.. same key codes same lock box codes I don't get it . but as long as the money comes in green I guess I cant complain. just seems pretty stupid

Stupid is the game.

As long as the pay keeps coming, I always kept doing the work.

Service companies are committing fraud. You are party to it. Eventually this will come to a head and someone will get screwed. It likely won't be the service companies.......
