Can a seller be listed as the settlement agent on the HUD-1?
My opinions are definitely my own; who else would want them!

IMO, that would probably depend on state law, if the person is licensed, qualified and bonded to be a settlement agent. Because of potential conflicts of interest accusations, I'm sure that many would not want multiple roles.

I think the only situation in which the seller might be listed as settlement agent would be when a lender sells OREO (other real estate owned) property and closes the transaction in-house.
