Based upon the date of closing and the area (county or city). Christee will allocate the following potential expenses to the seller:

1. State and local transfer taxes typically paid by the seller

2. State and local documentary taxes typically paid by seller

3. Title insurance which is typically paid by seller

4. Closing fees, attorney fees, document prep fees, abstract or survey fees

5. Proration of property taxes at time of closing

6. Amortized mortgage payoff

7. Real estate commissions

8. Closing cost and discount points paid on behalf of purchaser
