Communication among stakeholders, municipalities, and HOAs is a critical element in keeping vacant properties compliant with local government codes. Strong lines of communication foster collaboration and partnership. Through Compliance Connections’ immediate notification of new citations, property stakeholders are provided an opportunity to remedy the situation before municipalities begin to fine and lien the property. Stakeholders are able to communicate directly with the municipalities concerning the abatement action taken, reasons why the lender is legally prevented from taking action, or the status of investor approval. All parties can work in partnership to find solutions that address the issue in a mutually beneficial way. Case notes insure transparency of the actions taken and the decisions made.
