Duplicated Charge of Recording Fee?

Asked by John, 20175 Fri Mar 6, 2009

I am in a refinance process, and the old lender included a recording fee in the total pay-off amount while I am still paying recording fee to the new lender as part of the closing costs

My new lender tells me that the old lender should back out, while the old lender claims they have to let the County know that the old mortgage is paid off and they are the only party who can do so ... also they charged a ridiculous $30 for pay-off statement fax fee ...

Sounds like duplicated charges on the recording fee to me ... your thoughts?

I am just curious how the recording process is supposed to be handled during a refinance? Do both lenders have to be involved or is my old lender trying to nickel and dime me again?
