What types of foreclosure expenses or costs are reimbursable?

Fannie Mae will reimburse the servicer for Fannie Mae’s share of any funds it advances for foreclosure expenses related to FHA, VA, and conventional mortgage loans (whether they are whole mortgage loans, participation pool mortgage loans held in Fannie Mae's portfolio, or special servicing MBS mortgage loans) and those related to special servicing option RD mortgage loans. Specifically, Fannie Mae will reimburse the servicer for the out-of-pocket costs that it pays to third-party vendors or the courts, which are listed in Defined Expense Reimbursement Limits in F-1-05, Expense Reimbursement and provided the costs are actual, reasonable, and necessary (and are included in any applicable FHA, VA, RD, or MI claim that is filed).

To request reimbursement for these items, the servicer must follow the procedures in Requesting Reimbursement for Other Reimbursable Expenses in F-1-05, Expense Reimbursement.

For more information please see: E-5-07, Other Reimbursable Default-Related Legal Expenses
