Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Does the addendum change the agreement to split the closing costs.......or does it just modify the original agreement to add responsibility for the septic/well and warranty?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The addendum just modify the Well/septic and home warranty plus a 2250 credit. But per the Title Company. The California Residential Purchase Agreement does reflect that the buyer and seller are to split the escrow fee 50/50, however the Real Estate Purchase Addendum supersedes the California Residential Purchase Agreement. I have attached the copy of your Real Estate Purchase Addendum and have highlighted the areas in which it states this on page 6 item 10 f and page 10 item 28.Page 6 item 10 is the same thing on the Original Purchase Agreement where Seller pays Title Fees. The last one refers to the Effect of the Addendum where it amends and Suppliments the contract and Escrow Instructions

Ok. I see what you're saying.

You're probably going to need someone to review your paperwork and issue an opinion....and that's more than I'm set up to do here. I'll opt out and open it for other experts that may be able to assist.
