There are recording fees to record the deed with the Register of Deeds.The recording fees are based on he purchase price and generally about $1 per thousand, but they vary by county. And I would recommend you still get title insurance on the property, to ensure your actually own the property and that any previous liens are released. You can have an attorney do this for you, and so in that case, if the attorney will do the closing, the title insurance and the recording. The attorney should give you a break on the closing fee he charges since their is no loan involved. So, all in you're probably looking at about $500 -- depending on the price of the house. This assumes about $300 for the attorney, $100 for title insurance, and $100 for recording. Based on a $100,000 purchase price.
