Every mortgage servicing company and property preservation company you deal with will probably have a statement in their contractors’ manual regarding gifts. Most of the companies have a no-gift policy meaning that no gifts are accepted. This policy is put into effect in order to avoid a conflict of interest, the appearance of a conflict of interest, or the need for the company employees to examine the ethics of acceptance.
Do not put anyone in an uncomfortable position. Know and abide by each company’s gift policy.
It is also a good idea for your own property preservation company policies manual to include a no-gift policy which states that your company and its employees do not accept gifts from property preservationvendors, suppliers, customers, potential employees, potential vendors or suppliers, or any other individual or organization, under any circumstances.
