BBB Accreditation

This business is not BBB accredited.

Businesses are under no obligation to seek BBB accreditation, and some businesses are not accredited because they have not sought BBB accreditation.

To be accredited by BBB, a business must apply for accreditation and BBB must determine that the business meets BBB accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. BBB Accredited Businesses must pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.

Urban Development Solutions was a BBB Accredited Business off and on for seven years but continued to display the BBB logo on its website while no longer accredited.  The use of the BBB logo is reserved for current BBB Accredited Businesses only.  BBB sent a letter to Urban Development Solutions on February 24, 2015, advising the business they were no longer permitted to display the BBB logo.  A reminder letter was sent on March 10, 2015.  Urban Development Solutions neither responded nor removed the logo.  Because the Council of Better Business Bureaus considers the unauthorized display of the BBB logo to be a major violation of the BBB Code of Advertising, the BBB rating of the business should have been revised to an F rating.  However, this business was already rated F by the BBB due to their lack of response to several complaints.   Urban Development Solutions will need to resolve both issues before their BBB rating can be restored to a letter grade.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
