Eviction and Lock Out Services
Our eviction and lock-out contractors are experienced in providing eviction and lock-out services.
Evictions and lock-outs can be a risky venture in today's litigious society. Our contractors provide not only complete digital documentation of the mortgagor's possessions, but also full video documentation on the more difficult cases. This service is provided in order to reduce the amount of exposure to lawsuits for our clients. Our contractors are experienced in making the procedure as easy and pleasant as possible for the prior mortgagor. The mortgagor's personal possessions can be moved to storage or a site of their choice in the local area.
In the case of personal property evictions, where the mortgagor has left behind substantial personal possessions, our contractors are experienced in what constitutes valuable personal property and what is considered to be trash. The valuable possessions are moved to a storage facility for proper disposition based upon the current laws.
Additionally, our contractors are able to properly dispose of abandoned vehicles according to the current laws.
Property Maintenance and Preservation
Our approved contractors offer complete property maintenance services such as re-keys, board-ups, trash-outs, winterizations, small repair, large renovation work and any other maintenance requirements. No job is too small or large for our group of insured contractors. Our contractors are skilled at preserving the condition of the property so as not to lose additional market value.
We offer a wide range of market valuation services for our clients from drive by valuations to full interior valuations. You will find our valuations to be an accurate reflection of what the market will pay, not an inflated unrealistic value. In addition to being accurate, our valuations are prompt and on time. Complete digital photos can be emailed or printed on our full color printers and shipped via US Mail or overnight.
It is our goal to market your property for the most money, in the shortest amount of time and with the least hassle to you.
Cash for Keys Services
Cash for keys is an efficient and cost effective way for a lender to remove an occupant from a foreclosed property by side stepping the eviction process. Our REO unit is highly experienced and effective at negotiating favorable cash for keys settlements. This results in savings for our clients, negating the need for eviction and also bringing the property to market for quicker disposition.
Cash Advances for Our Clients
We offer cash advances on behalf of our clients for cash for keys, routine maintenance, renovation work and also past due utility bill payment at settlement. Many companies in today’s market are not able to advance funds on behalf of their clients. ERA Meridian Real Estate Group has the financial ability to make cash advances on behalf of our clients.
