Who Pays Closing Costs

7 Replies

I'm assuming in an assignment, the buyer you assign it to will ay closing, but who pays closing in a double escrow?

@David Littleton It all depends on how the deal is structured and what is customary in your state. Here in Maryland it's customary for seller and buyer to split closing cost because fees are around 3%. But again, it can be negotiated..

There are limitations people, if your buyer is getting a secondary market loan, the seller may not pay just anything. That's in any state. The seller can compernsate for pre-paid items in some ways but credits won't save expenses and plays on the loan to value.
