Interior inspections are a front line defense against issues that could conceivably end in loss of property value and increased repair costs. Often, these issues, if found in a timely manner, can be mitigated for less than $500.
Interior inspections occur after an initial secure has taken place at the property. The inspector accesses the house via a lockbox, which was installed by Safeguard’s contractor at the time of the initial secure. An interior sign-in sheet is posted inside the front door, and all inspectors entering the property are required to sign in as evidence of access. The house is then inspected for interior damage in an attempt to detect any issues that could result in costly and difficult repairs. Damages such as mold, roof leaks and infestations will be reported to the servicer. Interior inspections are typically completed monthly and are compliant with the accepted interpretation of investor/insurer guidelines for interior inspections.
