Portfolio Due Diligence Services
Through an initial review of inactivity, variance, maturity and inspection reports, Granite will identify potential problem loans and provide an Executive Summary in order to risk rate each loan. Granite’s web-based ordering platform will confirm recorded liens, mortgages, and building permits and attain copies of support documents for recorded liens and permits in a 72-hour service standard.
Project Status and Risk Analysis
Granite coordinates workout site inspections for REO properties to determine project progress. The project information is evaluated and a cost to completion is calculated based on inspector findings and Granite’s proprietary database. Granite will then assign a project risk rating and make a recommendation to finish construction, suspend activity, or remove the existing structure and sell developed land.
Contractor Replacement and Bid Evaluation
Granite assists with the contractor replacement by presenting one or more qualified contractors and bids to the client. Granite completes a comprehensive review of the contractor’s licenses, references, insurances and personal credit reports. Granite also will obtain, review and analyze construction costs to complete bids.
Construction Completion Management
Granite serves as Project Manager to ensure completion of construction project or facilitate sale of REO asset “as is.” During construction, Granite will establish a schedule for status inspections to monitor the contractor’s progress, review and recommend draw requests and perform risk management reporting and tracking.
