In this region of Florida, the seller normally selects the title company and pays the majority of the closing fees. If the property is located in community with a HOA â€œHomeownerâ€™s Associationâ€, there could be a transfer or initiation fee.
When I represent a buyer, I contact the title company and request a estimated closing statement called a HUD1. This will break down all the fees associated with closing and show what fees are being paid by each party.
Hopefully this helps :)
