  • This is yet another example of why agents and lenders should not request keys. It may or may not have prevented this situation, however most lenders encourage contact on involuntaries.
    I believe its because its our agents at risk, and our insurance that would get tagged. Lenders IMO just want a key. Saves them a key fee. The key(s) comes at the risk of human live. I am sure this is a rare occurrence, but it can happen to anyone attempting to get keys. The risk factor goes up with contact in most all cases.
