Title Fees/Closing Costs

Title Companies are very regulated and this goes double for the fees that can be charged.


The first and most expensive fee is the Title Insurance Fee.

This fee is created by the Title Underwriters and filed with

the state.  This fee cannot be negotiated or changed

however it can be discounted in some circumstances.


Next are Endorsements, they are also filed with the state by the Title Underwriters. These are additional coverage's to the lenders policy that lenders may

require. The standard 3 endorsements issued with a normal home loan

are the 8.1, 9 (100) & 22 (116) and they cost $60.00 total.

Next are Escrow Fees.  These are the local Title Companies fees

and they are filed by them with the state.  

You can                 or                  the filed rates of all Utah

Title Companies.  If you are charged more then their filed

rates you should ask the Title Company why.
