The servicer should charge the borrower only those bankruptcy fees and costs that are permitted under the terms of the note, security instrument, and applicable law and that are prorated to reasonably relate to the amount of work actually performed. The servicer must also comply with the additional requirements set forth in E-5-05, Reimbursing Law Firms/Reimbursement of Uncollected Fees, Costs or Advances.
When legally permissible, the servicer must preserve the borrower's obligation to reimburse it for attorney fees and costs paid for bankruptcy actions in accordance with local bankruptcy rules and all applicable law.
The servicer may request reimbursement by submitting a Request for Expense Reimbursement to Fannie Mae.
