What We Do
Bringing together more than two decades of experience and the most modern technology and processing systems available, Allied Trustee Services provides efficient and accurate assessment collection and non-judicial foreclosure services. We work closely with property management groups, community association boards and their members to resolve even their most difficult delinquent accounts. Allied also offers customized account consultations to ensure that our service and debt recovery solutions are tailored to our clients’ needs.
Under the guidance of our own in-house legal counsel and highly experienced trustee management staff, Allied Trustee Services is the only trustee that offers a full array of customized services for community associations covering the entire spectrum of assessment collection, including:
Non-Judicial Foreclosure: Performance-based non-judicial foreclosure conducted under the Allied Advantage Service Agreement, which in most cases eliminates any fees and costs the association would face in collecting against a delinquent owner.*
Lien and Hold Only: Allied’s Lien and Hold service encumbers ownership title, without foreclosing against a delinquent owner.* The service includes the preparation of a Pre-Lien and the recordation of a Lien to secure the Association’s debt in the event of an owner’s bankruptcy or a lender foreclosure with surplus funds. The Association achieves payment under the Lien and Hold Service when the property is sold, refinanced or the owner wants to remove the Lien. The Lien & Hold Service restricts the Association’s actions to that of a more passive collection. Contact us before employing this service to obtain additional information and determine if this strategy is the fitting services for your community and the delinquent account.
Small Claims: Full administration, preparation and attendance for civil small claims cases under $5,000. Allied will fully administer and pursue a delinquent owner or prior owner in small claims court.* Our small claims options can give the association the opportunity to pursue accounts with amounts that are not enforceable under the non-judicial foreclosure process, amounts that stay perpetually below the statutory threshold for foreclosure, debts on over-encumbered properties, prior owner debts, and much more!
Superior Court: Allied’s Superior Court Program allows for the bulk filing of numerous delinquent accounts in a single, cost and time-efficient court action that is not hampered by the jurisdictional limitations of multiple small claims court cases. The program is designed to be used in a variety of debt recovery scenarios, but most typically where the association has several accounts in which the debt is over $5,000 and its lien or prior collection action has been extinguished by a lender’s foreclosure.*
Enforcement of Judgment: Allied’s Enforcement of Judgment Service allows associations to turn paper court judgments into hard cash–at no up-front cost to the association. This service is at no cost to association unless and until Allied recovers*. The service is designed for the cases where the prior collection action has resulted in a monetary judgment being entered following a successful Small Claims or Superior Court action, even if the judgment was not obtained by Allied.
