Property Preservation Certification
There is no “official” endorsement for a property preservation certification.
There is no agreement among the various companies on what certification should consist of.
Although not officially endorsed by anyone, not publicly anyway, I was asked by several mortgage servicing companies to create a “certification exam” so that the companies could use the test results to determine the applicants level of knowledge and experience in the many areas of property preservation.
Along the same lines, an insurance carrier asked for an exam that would give them an idea of the experience of the property preservation contractor applying for liability and E&O insurance.
I also created an exam and certificate program for contractors that were looking for an edge – something to set them apart from their local competition. Most of the contractors that have taken the exam and received certification, tell me they think the certification does help distinguish them from other applicants.
