Real Estate Closing Costs

Understand Your Real Estate Closing Costs

It's no surprise that calculating real estate closing costs can challenge even the most mathematically astute. This is because of all the specialized fees, recording charges and taxes associated with purchasing a home. These include title service costs, recording fees, mortgage application fees, pro-rata property taxes, etc.

All residential transactions have real estate closing costs well documented in detail in a standard HUD-1 form. However, closing costs are sufficiently complex and you should review, understand and be able to estimate these costs before you enter into a real estate transaction. You do not want to learn that these costs exceed your expectations or budget after you have signed a contract.

I am an experienced real estate closing attorney. I work closely with my clients and can help you save time, aggravation, and disappointment.  I represent both commercial and residential clients in real estate transactions including the purchase or sale of single or multi-family homes, cooperatives and condominiums throughout New York.
