Mortgage Contracting Services, LLC  (MCS), a nationwide provider of services to the mortgage industry, has reached an agreement to acquire the property preservation division from Carrington Home Solutions , LP (CHS). The transaction is expected to close before the end of 2017.
MCS will assume responsibility to inspect and maintain CHS’ existing portfolio. Under the acquisition, CHS’ property preservation operations will integrate into MCS’ existing field service operations.

The acquisition of CHS’ field services unit enables MCS to expand our industry footprint, and increase our national presence and economies of scale. Through our work with CHS in the past, we applaud the business they built.
