The Department of Labor requested a decision regarding a transferred employee's claim for reimbursement for certain real estate expenses. The claimant contended that he was entitled to reimbursement for his house and pool inspection fees, since his purchase agreement included such fees. GAO held that the claimant was not entitled to reimbursement of the fees, since neither the mortgage lender nor state or local law required these services. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
