American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc Partners With Compliance Connections™ to Proactively Manage City Code Requirements on Homes
Web-based technology aims to preserve the value of communities
Dallas, Texas, April 30, 2012 — American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. (AHMSI) announced its partnership with Compliance Connections™, a division of Safeguard Properties, to proactively manage and address potential code issues for its property portfolio.
Compliance Connections™ offers a web-based portal allowing mortgage loan servicers and municipalities to communicate immediately when code issues arise. When notices are posted, they are delivered immediately and electronically, eliminating the delays associated with mailed notices, saving time and money, and preserving the value and condition of real estate assets and the communities in which they are located.
“If a window is broken at one of our properties or has other violations, we need to know about it so we can take care of it right away, said Rance Halfmann, Vice President Default Operations Support. “That’s what Compliance Connections™ will help us do. Through the system, a code enforcement officer can notify us immediately so we can act promptly to keep our properties and surrounding neighborhoods safe and secure and maintain property values.”
“AHMSI’s dedication to the communities it serves is impressive. We are proud to partner with them to reach out to municipalities and code enforcement officials across the country to minimize property-related issues,” said Brandon Kirkham, President of Compliance Connections™.
