By custom, the buyer pays the recordation tax and the seller pays the deed transfer tax. However, the payment responsibility for the transfer tax and recordation fee is dictated by the sales contract.

Many settlement companies will bundle the usual settlement fees, for example:

Check from escrow for closing proceeds
Document Preparation
electronic signing of eligible documents, in advance
Notary Fees
Overnight or Courier services
Scan and secure email of signed closing documents
Settlement appointment with all parties
