Hi Lisa52

You received your answer. In the future if you want to check on "who pays what" there is a link under Buyer Resources on my website you can check out by county and then by city.

All the best to you.

Hi Lisa,
As with all terms of the contract, costs are negotiable, but most people follow the customary practice in Santa Clara Co. and split the San Jose city tax 50/50. There is also a Santa Clara County transfer tax and by custom, the seller alone pays this.

Take care,

One more for split 50/50 buyer/seller. San Jose's city tax is $3.30 per thousand dollars of purchase price.

It's commonly and customary in Santa Clara County that City Transfer Tax split btw seller and buyer. However, it depends on the signed contract btw seller and buyer.
