Is it shown in your sale agreement? If so, pay it. If not, tell them to suck it up.
That was the first thing I went to check after receiving a settlement statement.
My sale agreement doesn't specify the amount of closing fees
However, it says "upon the close of sale, The Purchaser authorizes the Closing Agent to deduct any outstanding expenses incurred to the Purchaser's account from the Earnest Monies and apply to the purchase
of the Vessel".
Which can be understood as me authorizing them to charge me any amount, except they couldn't have incurred any expenses on my behalf, because I haven't given them a power of attorney yet.
I'm planning to negotiate those fees and use leverage over broker and the seller if needed.
Probably easier to pay, but then they win, and keep doing it to others.
No can do
