How do you squeeze out all of the agreed $ amount for seller paid buyer closing costs?I was promised 3% to be paid buy seller for my closing costs as in my contract. Now I'm told that because of the closing month (February), there is no longer a 7 month tax impound and instead I have to pay upfront taxes through June. So supposedly I cannot include the 7 month impound in the 3% seller paid costs and will have to put up an additional $1100 at closing above the GFE because of this. The escrow person said that there was no other closing cost items that could be paid by seller. (Hope that didn't confuse too much.) So what can I do to recoup the lost $1100 that the seller agreed to pay? I mentioned to my agent about having the bank install an oven or something, but only as a last resort if the money can't be credited to me at closing.February 09 2011 - Santa Clarita00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
