Aprox. that we experienced at Cicchiello and Cicchiello(lawyers office) in Norwich. - An all round good experience with lawyers I thought of as human and good ones too, as opposed to other lawyers I've met in the past.
I'd certainly hope to be able to use them if we ever had to move again.
Then there are real estate agent's fees and banks charges(the worst part).
The attorney/legal fees are modest in comparison to the bank fees for the loan charges, underwriting fees, bank points for the loan, there's also flood search costs that the bank charge you. And of course the prepaid interest!
That's about all I can think of, hope it helps.
I 've been selling real estate in the Norwich area for 28 years. there are a few excellent real estate attorneys who are very reasonable. If you would like to call or email me I can give you names and numbers.
I really don't know very much about the Connecticut Market, but I think that closing costs are pretty much the same for most mortgages. Your Mortgage Broker should have given you a "Good Faith Estimate" of your closing costs. If he didn't, call him or her as soon as you can and get it... It is required here in Florida and I would think everywhere else in the country too. Just about ALL of your closing costs will be Mortgage related.
The amounts would be determined by the time of the month that you close. You will have to pay for
Appraisal, Survey, Title Insurance, Credit Report, Inspections, Taxes, Insurance, Pre Paid Interests, Escrow, Doc stamps, recording fees, Attorney, etc, etc, etc,. Here in Florida the costs can run anywhere between 4% to 6% of the purchase price... I hope that helps a little, but PLEASE get with your Mortgage person asap.. They will be the best one to answer your question. If they don't , then get another Mortgage person.
Good Luck... Joseph Zajkowski - Hokiday Florida
