I had to remove debris from my property after the disaster. Can this expense be included in my loan application?

Answer: 

Yes, but your own labor and that of family members cannot be included. Amounts paid to others and any equipment rental can be listed as part of repairs to real estate. Remember that the maximum loan limit on real estate damage is $200,000, and debris removal is included in the limit.
