I recently put a house under contract with auction.com. I was blown away by linear title's fees so I called them up and told them I was using my own title company. They said OK but still want to charge me over $500 doc prep fees and put in my HUD 1 that I am responsible for the tax stamps which are typically paid by the seller or 50/50 split in my state. Do I have any bargaining leverage here? I feel like walking at this point but don't want to lose a 4000 deposit.

What was the outcome? Did you walk?

 Did you walk away from this? How did the transaction go?
