Who pays fees buyer or seller? My siblings and I own equal shares of our late mother's house. We are selling it to one of our brothers. The buying brother's lawyer has charged $4700 for preparing, recording and conveyance fees. Who normally pays these fees? The buyer or seller or both? Also, does this amount sound reasonable for a home sold for $70k? Thanks in advance.December 13 2010 - Orlando00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
