VLS works with our clients and with our network of contractors to ensure each property is secure, and that the interior and exterior are free of health and safety hazards. All work is completed in accordance with investor and insurer guidelines.
Once an inspection has been completed and it has been determined that the property is vacant, our contractor will complete a lock change in accordance with investor or insurer guidelines.
VLS will follow our client’s guidelines and state statues to provide eviction services: quick removal of belongings in properties, boarding up windows and doors, lock changes and bulk trash removal.
Without proper attention, unoccupied properties could incur serious damage to their interiors. During the course of our service, VLS routinely completes winterizations on dry, steam and radiant heat systems.
VLS will remove all interior and exterior debris deemed to be a health, safety or infestation risk as well as hazardous and non-hazardous or a code violation items. Exterior debris is removed by the cubic yard and dumped at a licensed dumping facility. Interior debris is removed per the investor guidelines and personal items remain until VLS receives instructions to complete a personal property eviction.
VLS follows our client's regulations for grass cut frequency and seasons. Generally, this means that we will complete grass cuts during the grass cut season. Shrub trimming is completed once per season, with additional trimming available at the client's request. All lawn maintenance is performed in accordance with our client’s instructions.
VLS will follow our clients’ guidelines for Boarding and Securing properties. Properties must be boarded to prevent vandalism where required by local ordinance or when exterior openings are un-securable or broken.
As VLS maintains the lawn during the summer months; we will maintain the walkways and driveways during the winter months to ensure safety. Once the accumulation reaches three inches, the snow will be removed per our client’s guidelines.
All rendered services are reported to our clients on a monthly basis, including photos that document property condition before and after those services.
