Safeguard Begins Door Hanger Program
Austin Kilgore | 02.02.09
Safeguard Properties is taking a step to improve communication among neighbors and prevent blight in vacant properties by requiring its contractors to place door hangers on the neighboring homes of vacant properties it services beginning Monday.
The “Good Neighbor Door Hanger” has Safeguard’s contact information in the event a neighbor needs to contact the company regarding damage and blight to a REO property.
Vendors received the hangers over the course of the past few weeks, and are instructed to attempt to contact the neighbor before leaving the door hanger. Contractors are required to fill out the door hanger when completing an initial secure or REO initial services order.
In a memo to its contractors, Safeguard said, “Servicers and local governments are partners in fighting blight, maintaining safe neighborhoods, and ensuring properties are maintained.”
