The attorneys (also known as conveyancing attorney) fees include:

  • Property transfer cost (the fees for transferring the property from the seller’s name to yours).
  • Deeds office registration fees.
  • Post, petties, FICA and other fees.

The attorney is hired by the property seller, but paid by the buyer.

Their fees increase according to the value of the home.
