""Mortgage Contracting Services LLC"":http://www.mcs360.com (MCS) recently announced the availability of its code enforcement mini-summits, as an extension of its initiatives to ensure industry-wide education and collaboration.[IMAGE] The nationwide provider of property preservation, inspections, and REO maintenance services calls its program an ""interactive information exchange"" to provide specialized education and encourage collaboration between the code enforcement community and other default industry participants.
""Our goal with this program is to not only promote goodwill between these parties but to also best prepare them to manage the defaulted properties within their jurisdictions,"" said Caroline Reaves, CEO of MCS. ""Because[COLUMN_BREAK]
of MCS's national presence and relationship with some of the largest mortgage servicers, we are positioned to significantly help impact the quality and overall performance of preservation practices.""
MCS hopes to bring together local code enforcement representatives, vendors, and servicing shops for the mini-summits to outline the intricacies of the default servicing industry for code officers. Attendees have direct communication with area contractors and servicers to discuss the community's particular challenges and tendencies regarding effective property preservation.
Offered at no cost to the municipalities or attendees, the mini-summits are scheduled by municipalities, and MCS then enlists local vendors and servicing shops to attend. Code officers may also use the sessions to fulfill their continuing education requirements.
MCS's first mini-summit was held August 24 in Frisco, Texas. Additional mini-summits will be scheduled in the coming months in areas that correspond with executives' schedules for tradeshows and other industry events.
Greg Carr, a Frisco code enforcement administrator who attended the company's preliminary summit, said, ""This effort is mutually beneficial for banks, property preservation companies, and city code enforcement departments to work together to achieve the same goal of preserving properties.""
