This always surprises me and I find new thing out all the time. There is an old fee in one of my local cities for .50 (50 cents). It came back from the lender as a nonallowable fee. Everybody spent more time on fixing the .50 on the HUD-1 than was worth it.
Linda HAFA shorts schange over time, the government may decide not to cover different things. At one time Iwas haveing problems getting the transfer fee paid a it was considered a tax and the government refused to pay a local tax.
I don't think my question is clear. Under the terms of a HAFA short sale, the Third Party lenders to the transaction are not allowing some seller paid closing costs. I wish the lender - Wells Fargo in this case - had a list of costs they will allow or not allow to make it simple. But apparently it is a secret list they do not hand out (perhaps because it changes?). Sometimes in the course of doing a short sale someone will come across information like that that is helpful to the community at large. Standard Short sales are not an issue - the secret list only applies to HAFA Shorts:) Help.
