After confusing messages between the seller"s and buyer's realtors and the title company person, I obtained a clear explanation from the person at my condo association management company, who deals with homewisedocs (the provider of these documents being discussed here).
Also, a person from homewise responded to my inquiry, and explained that the reason I did not see an option to order/purchase the Resale Demand on my account page on homewise, is because only someone from the title company (or someone like them, i.e., attorney, or other person with a company with a need to obtain this info) has the option (after they have registered) to order/purchase a Resale Demand. In other words, I as the seller, do not have access to do that.
I know the sale of property is a confusing process for many people, and I am sorry you are frustrated with the process to obtain the documentation needed for the sale of your property.
We use Homewise to help simplify the process as there are different forms needed by different organizations for the sale of your home. The resale package needs to be given to the new owner so that they have all of the rules, regulations, etc. that govern the property they are purchasing. It also tells them if there are any architectural violations on the property, if the association is involved in any litigation, etc. If you paid $300 for your package, you ordered the full package that contains the association documents. If you had the documents, you could have purchased the $175 package that doesn't contain the association documents.
The information the title company needs to prepare the HUD-1 for the sale of your property is different from the resale package. They need to order the resale demand from Homewise to obtain the settlement information they need. The cost of the resale demand is $75. In order to protect financial information regarding the seller, this option is limited as to who can order it. Most of the title companies order this themselves - it sounds like the title company you are using put that responsibility on the seller.
There is also a $75 transfer fee that is collected at settlement to cover the costs associated with setting up a new owner in the association's records. This is not to be confused with the $75 for the resale demand needed by the title company.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
