Corinn, The fees allowed for a reverse mortgage ss are not the same as a standard FHA PFS.

Comment by Corinn on January 8, 2015 at 10:57am

Has anyone come across a Reverse Mortgage short sale where the lender states they will not pay a settlement/closing fee?  WF states this is not allowed, per HUD guidelines.  Looking at the Allowable vs. Disallowable costs - paid from Seller's Funds at PFS Settlement worksheet, it is most certainly allowed.  Who do they expect to close the transaction?  They will not supply their own title company either.  Opening a ticket w/HUD, but thought I'd get some feedback from here, since ya'll are so knowledgeable!

HELP!  I closed a HUD Preforeclosure Short Sale in July of this year for one of my clients and now my client is getting letters stating they still owe money to Ocwen?  They even received the a cash incentive at closing.  We had a signed ATP and everything worked as normal for this program..  I have never seen this before?  Have any of you seen this?

Thanks Kevin, I am trying and did send them the HUD links. They are still so new at this that it has been very difficult to get calls back and receive any escalation within the company.  Thanks again 

Comment by Kevin - Greenville, SC on October 22, 2014 at 3:21pm

they are incorrect. show them the guideline and escalate accordingly.

Comment by Carolyn Triebold, MS on October 22, 2014 at 3:19pm

Thanks Kevin, but unfortunately they are telling us we need net proceeds to be at 95%.  Any other suggestions. We are resubmitting full package that supposedly was rejected by HUD in early October again to NOVAD for resubmission, but we are really up against several time constraints.

  1. If the mortgage is due and payable and the borrower (or estate) will not be retaining ownership of the property, the property may be sold for at least the lesser of the unpaid mortgage balance or 95% of appraised value.
