Legal fees vary. It’s best to contact a couple of lawyers to fully understand what the costs are. The basic fees for a buyer range from $800 to $1,000. Then you’re looking at roughly another $300 to $400 to search title to the property, $350 for title insurance and $150 to register one mortgage etc. There would also be governmental land transfer tax. With that, on a $300,000 property, land transfer tax would be $2,975, while a $700,000 property would be $10,475.
