RESPA 2010 - where do we put deed prep on the HUD-1?
We insure title and performs closings in 34 counties in Pennsylvania. In ONE of those counties it is customary for the buyer to pay deed preparation. That county is Bedford. So, if in Bedford, we would include the deed prep fee on the buyer side as part of title services on line #1101, even if seller paid. In the case of a seller paid deed prep in Bedford County we would put a credit on the first page of the HUD-1. In all other counties deed prep would go on the seller side of the HUD-1 in the 1100 section.
