nothing more than a drive-by review of your property allegedly to determine condition/value of a property that may or may not be in default......I would love to hear from someone who actually performs the inspections, or someone who has had the information used for or against them in the past.
“Drive by inspections” are one of the more insidious mortgage servicing abuses and illicit activities since they are a real monster to establish that you are on to them.
Drive by inspections abuse (at least in my case) declined sharply from circa 2005 when they were at their peak to circa fall of 2008 when they amazingly ceased to exist! (At least in my own personal case) What I did was constantly badger them on this and many other subjects and move up the ladder from customer service to personal contact with one of dozens of VPs. Eventually the drive by inspections which was not even my focal point went from rampant abuse to non-existent. I know my individual isolated account may seem out of the mainstream and it is,,, In fact I have seen similar fairy tales (in here) on a vast variety of subjects whereby the author was simply encouraging others to make life miserable for hard core servicing criminals like Wells Fargo, AMC, etc. However in my own particular case the tactic of relentless documented perseverance appeared to have worked in this area alone,,, ..Perhaps a series of admonishments from the courts to cease abuse of drive-by-inspections in a probationary fashion after judgments may have incredibly caused a sharp curtailment of bogus and nonexistent “inspections” involving those who complained the most about them.
