Can A builder dictate what lender I use if the builder pays for all of the closing costs?I want to buy a home from an investor group. They are agreeing to pay all of the mortgage loan closing costs but I can only apply foir my mortgage with 3 companys on their list. If I pay for the closing costs I can do my loan with any company. The on site agent told my wife thats this is how its always been done. The agent said something about law of agency. Is this true?February 21 2011 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
