House in Harrisburg - lease option from October 2013 for

House in Harrisburg - lease option from October 2013 for $1200.00 per month with $300 to be held in separate account to be used as down payment or if lease is broken, then it be retained by myself. Appraisal came back at the market value of the selling price. However, came back that the $1200.00 per month was not fair market value and the tenant could not use the funds as the down payment. The bank, Wells Fargo, claims there is a Federal Regulation that states the above is correct and therefore we cannot close on the house - the tenant's application has been denied. Is this correct??

If I use the money that is in my mothers bank account( for which I am the power of attorney) (she is 94 years old and is in a facility for Alzheimers patients), would there a gift tax involved. We are buying a house and need "seasoned funds" to be in our account for 60 days. After that time, we would put the money back into her account. We do not really need the money, we can come up with the down payment of $140,000 on our own, but the loan broker said the underwriters will want us to have 6 months reserve for mortgage payments, property tax and insurance on our other houses, (1 is in a lease-option), one is listed for sale and the one we live in now will be rented out, but she said that is what is required, which will be about $85,000 more($225,000) than we have to "season" before she can submit the package.

Hi, I saw an online guru say you can find home sellers buyers who have bad credit or no down payment and negotiate a lease option fee where they could buy the property after some time with you collecting a fee. Is that legal or even doable?Thanks in advanceDevin
