This depends on the contract.

I work in Florida, so I'm not sure if this would be different in Texas.  But, I rarely see a buyer going forward with such expenses prior to the short sale approval. Though, I have seen some agents that will try to make buyers do this as a condition of the contract to attempt to lock the buyers into the transaction.

I'm surprised that you aren't getting your question answered. I talked with our offices in Houston and Dallas and they indicate as I would think that we don't want our client spending any money till we have an accepted offer. As an investor I would never tie up money with an escrow deposit till we had an accepted offer.

Hard to say what is typical, but if that is their policy and you want the property bad enough...

Every state guidelines, every lender's requirements, and every contract is different when it comes to short sales.
