Who’s responsible for additional fees from FHA loan?

Steve (Guest) on Saturday, September 15 2012, 07:14 PM
The closing attorney for the sale of my home in Sudbury was aware of the necessity to payoff my FHA loan by a certain time to avoid additional fees. The payoff was rejected by my lender because is wasn’t a “certified check, cashier’s check, or bank wire”, as required by the lender’s Payoff Statement. After being contacted by lender, he then sent a certified check which was received after the deadline and I was charged additional interest and fees. He admitted to ignoring the lender’s requirements, but refuses to reimburse me because he was not responsible for the payoff of my loan. What can I do?

    Unfortunately, paying off an FHA loan always presents the problem of making sure that the payoff money is received before the next due date. I suggest that if your lender chose the closing attorney, that you go back to your lender and tell them that it is their responsibility to either pay the additional interest and fees or get the closing attorney to do so. Otherwise call me so that I can assist you.
