closing costs and settlement costs

There are several different types of settlement costs that you will come across when going through the closing process on your new home. These fees are costs that are assessed at settlement. It is important that you review the Good Faith Estimate, which is a list of the fees that apply to your loan transaction. If you have questions about the Good Faith Estimate it is important that talk to your mortgage banker so that you fully understand the costs involved. Below are a list of the mortgage and government fees that may be included in the settlement costs.
