Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, no, the seller is not responsible for any of these fees.......USUALLY, the only fees the seller must pay is for the deed and pro-rated taxes. That said, the seller CAN agree to pay whatever he/she wants, but that usually doesn't happen.
Who pays what fees is usually outlined in the purchase contract.......so you may want to look there to see if any of theses expenses are to be paid by the seller.
But absent an contractual provision, these expenses will fall to the buyer/s.
