Additional charges will apply for specialized transactions involving construction loans, 1031 exchanges and some FIRPTA transactions. There are instances where additional fees must be charged for clearing title matters but only if there is a cost to us. We DO NOT charge you extra to do our job.
Note: The sales contract should specify who is paying the above charges, therefore, the buyer/seller designation may not be accurate based on your contractual agreement.
Note: On a refinance all charges are charged to the borrower.
