If some of the expenses had been unreimbursed than you can claim those as unreimbursed employee business expenses. These expenses would be reported on Sch A if you itemized.

You can deduct PMI subject to limitations discussed below as itemized deductions. You can also deduct the pro-rated real estate taxes that you have paid on the closing statement. You cannot deduct attorney fees, title insurance or title fees.
