Preservation

For over 20 years, our experienced management team at QUALIFIED, along with our extensive network of licensed and bonded contractors and inspectors in the field, have been preserving and protecting both residential and commercial assets on a nationwide basis.

We understand what needs to be done and we treat each property as if it were our own.

A few examples of residential and commercial property preservation services we offer nationwide are listed below. However, if you don’t see what you require for your assets, please contact us and we will customize a solution just for you.

Securing

Upon determination of vacancy status, the asset will be secured, including changing the lock(s), installing padlocks, lockboxes, sliding locks, and window locks as necessary, and boarding or repairing any damaged opening allowing unauthorized entry, in accordance with local regulations, and Investor/Insurer guidelines.

Debris Removal

All exterior debris including health hazards and vehicles will be removed and discarded at a licensed facility. Any interior debris will be removed in accordance with Investor/Insurer guidelines, with the exception of personal property, which will remain until the eviction process or otherwise instructed by the client.

Yard Maintenance

The initial or reoccurring yard maintenance will be performed including grass cut, edging, removal of clippings, weed removal, snow removal, incidental debris removal, shrubbery or trees trimmed, and flower beds weeded / replanted as needed.

Winterization

A full winterization of any type of heating or plumbing systems will be completed. All water lines and hot water tanks will be drained and tested for leaks.
