Dealing with Foreclosed Properties

March 18th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

While exploring the Safeguard website because of Kelly Anbach’s comments, I found that it had a list of contact information for lender’s servicers.  I’m not sure how up to date it is but you can find it at: http://www.safeguardproperties.com/content/view/1133/233/ The list was developed by the Mortgage Bankers Association.  Maybe it will give inspectors a way to make contact with a real person who can take action on a property.  On the same page is an Excel file of contacts at local governments.  It might be worthwhile to get on the list.

    Hopefully this site is helpful, I placed the Village of Deerfield on the site today, we’ll see how long it takes. We have been chasing down mortgage companies and banks through the websites unable to find a real person and if we do there are no return calls. We end up finding a fax number to sent the violation letters through a couple of times a week until we get a call back. We are looking into condemnation on a couple of homes that are half way complete and permits have expired.

    Jeff, What I understand is it gets updated quite frequently. Have your tried using realtytrac.com to follow foreclosures? – There are many other services out there too.

    Try Record Information Services. I have had good luck with them.

    Have a Happy Easter.
