This will vary from property to property.
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 :)
