FHA closing costs and allowable charges

FHA CLOSING COSTS

Closing Costs and Allowable Charges

While FHA requirements define which closing costs are allowable as charges to the borrower, the specific costs and amounts that are deemed reasonable and customary are determined by each local FHA office.  All other costs are generally not allowed and are usually paid by the seller when buying a new home, or paid by the lender when refinancing your existing FHA loan.
