We provide a full range of field services which can be customized into packages that allow clients to choose the services that best suit their needs. We are continually focused on creating greater efficiencies in the preservation process, resulting in faster turn times and reduced pre-marketing times for our clients.
In addition, we maintain controls to ensure the highest level of quality is achieved on each property. We employ a multi-tier quality assurance program that focuses on vendors completing work in accordance with CT Property Preservation and Maintenance Corp. standards and client requirements. Our goal is to maintain properties so they appear indistinguishable from owner occupied properties.
If a property is found vacant, we will secure the property to include: changing locks on exterior doors, installing lock box (coded per client requirements), boarding windows or doors as needed, securing entrance gates to property, posting emergency contact notice, securing pool if applicable, and providing photos of completed work.
Removal of all debris from the interior and exterior of the property, any outside items that detract from curb appeal (Christmas lights, dog houses, etc.), and vehicles are towed.
Initial Lawn Cut
Initial lawn service is completed to the highest standards, providing curb appeal and pride of ownership. Initial lawn service includes mowing the front, sides, and back yard of the property, weed eating, shrub trimming, edging, weeding flower beds, and removal of clippings.
Our sales cleans are performed with great detail, transforming the interior of the property into move-in-ready condition. Our thorough interior sales clean includes: vacuum carpets, wet mop vinyl and tile floors, clean all sinks, cabinets, countertops, commodes, bathtubs and showers. In addition, all appliances are emptied and cleaned and air fresheners are placed on sinktops.
To ensure a property is safe and secure, we will remove all broken glass from damaged windows. Windows will then be boarded according to HUD specifications.
We will schedule winterizations per client guidelines. Winterizing may include, but is not limited to: draining hot water tanks, commodes, and all water lines; use of an air compressor to flush water lines and pressure-test system for possible leaks; adding Propylene Glycol (antifeeze) to all commodes, sinks, drains and traps; we utilize zip-tie lines to close and secure the water main in the closed position; notices will be clearly posted containing the date of the winterization and contact information.
Personal Property Handling
We are experienced in handling the disposition of personal property in accordance with client specifications and with state and local requirements. We offer the service of consolidating personal belongings (PB) into one room. This process includes consolidating all PB into a separately secured room, and handling its proper disposition.
Our team will meet with local law enforcement, rekey the property, and manage personal belongings in accordance with state laws.
Cash for Keys
Once our client has negotiated a Cash for Keys settlement and arranged a date and time for the meeting, we will advance and distribute the funds, exchange funds for keys and secure the property by changing all exterior locks.
