Can a seller require that you go through their lender?


Not at all. In New York City, But it is possible that your lender may not loan to that particular building. That could be one reason. Just because you got pre approved doesn't mean you need to use that lender.It could be the seller trusts his lender, but regardless you can use whoever will loan to that building.

I would sit down with a few mortgage brokers or bank people and get the nnumbers. See if it makes sense with the cost.
