Hi Graham. Typically the seller pays for the search and survey but with foreclosures the buyer usually has to pay for these - banks won't pay any closing costs. Figure anywhere from $750-1000 for the search and survey, depending on how much work is involved in updating or creating the title abstract. You may not need a survey if you're paying cash - that will save you $400-600. You'll also need to hire an attorney to handle this which will be $500-600. And you'll have to pay the transfer tax which would be $90 on a $10K purchase. Good luck to you!
