Integrating Deed-In-Lieu of Foreclosure into Recovery Solutions—an Industry Game Changer
Concord’s collection agency brand, Blackwell Recovery®, has teamed up with Las Vegas based Old Republic Timeshare Services to officially roll-out a new full-service deed-in-lieu of foreclosure program. This new service offering is a win-win for resort developers, HOAs, and consumers.
For the business, loans are satisfied, inventory is retained, and the foreclosure process is avoided. Administrative operations from the resort developer or HOA are alleviated. Blackwell Recovery® acts on behalf of the resort developer or HOA, managing everything through Old Republic, simplifying the process and paperwork for all the parties involved without the need to manage multiple service providers. Instead of several different entities working through a lengthy multi-layered system, Blackwell Recovery maintains the consumer relationship and handles the process every step along the way including title searches, collecting payment, filing, recording and more. Inventory is returned in marketable condition, readily available to be sold to a developer, to a consumer, or to deed to a club.
“Concord is creating a new industry standard in streamlining the process and offering solutions. This is literally a game changer in the timeshare industry when it comes to loan satisfaction and inventory recovery,” says Concord President & CEO, Robert “Bob” Bertrand.
“We are pleased to partner with Concord’s Blackwell Recovery® to provide an economical and efficient inventory recovery option to developers, HOAs and consumers,” said John Snelgrove, First Vice President, Old Republic National Title Insurance Company. “This solution streamlines processes and eliminates multiple vendor management functions to allow developers and resorts to provide additional focus on areas of customer and guest satisfaction.”
