It likely would not show up on your GFE because the lender won't have any knowledge about what the fee is, etc since it isn't their fee.
That being said, the fee has to be agreed upon at some point prior to the closing table. We have a form that we present to buyers who buy our listings without the representation of an agent that includes a disclosure of the flat fee. If you never signed anything like that...you should not be liable for the fee...bottom line.
If you did not sign a disclosure form on the Admin Fee...the RE broker should not have charged you for it....PERIOD. As I thought since the Admin fee could not be paid by the bank since your home purchase was a short sale they found a way to have you pay for it.
Now there is a reason buyers have their own buyers agents.
If that agent didn't have the integrity to tell you about the fee up front, then he/she does NOT deserve it.

Also, if there is no buyer's agent, and you are working with the listing agent, I would think that the seller would be paying the brokers admin fee. You are technically unrepresented, so not sure why you would need to pay them a fee to represent yourself!
There are some real estate firms that charge an extra fee or commission for using that firm's services. If you were not told about this extra fee upfront then I certainly would dispute it.
I suggest that you speak with the Broker or Office Manager of the listing firm to resolve the issue.
